TOSHIBA X300 HDWE140XZSTA 4TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - It's quiet, very quiet, I don't know what people are complaining about these being noisy.
- Super fast in RAID0
- Low price for a retail boxed product from a good manufacturer, got them at $129 a piece

Cons: - Heavy, almost twice as heavy as my 2 GB WD drive

Other Thoughts: I almost didn't buy these drives because I read all the complaints about them being noisy. I'm glad I bit the bullet and got 2 of them and set up in RAID0. Even full speed copying huge amounts of files to them, they were not loud, at all.

1 out of 5 eggs bad experience 03/12/2016

This review is from: Seagate Lyve Home 2TB Home External Hard Drive LH100NAM White

Pros: it looks nice.
nice screen, though kind of useless for its purpose.

Cons: - no easy way to transfer pics/vids from a computer (you have to do it over the network. You can only plug in a USB drive/device if you want to transfer directly).
- when you plug in a USB drive/device, you DO NOT have your choice of what pic/vid/folder to transfer, it will discover everything and transfer everything, watch out for those questionable contents that you have hidden in a folder somewhere :)
-no easy way to organize the pics/vids once transfered to the Lyve, it will show all the pics/vids in small icons. Makes it very hard to delete things if you have thousands and thousands of files (again, good luck searching for those question contents to delete once transfered, unless you just select all and zap them, start over).
-when playing a vid on your laptop/phone/device via the Lyve app, it does not stream the video, the app downloads the entire video over your network, then plays it. Bad!

Other Thoughts: I was hoping for something like a NAS drive, but this thing is nothing of the sort. Don't waste your money like I did.
