Seagate 1TB Expansion Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STBX1000101 Black
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Died after two-ish years 01/03/2015

This review is from: Seagate 1TB Expansion Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STBX1000101 Black

Pros: It was a decent drive while it worked...

Cons: ...but I think I've had it ~two years, and it stopped working without warning. When plugged in it now makes what I'd describe as a faint beeping sound and is not recognized as a device by any of my computers.

Since it was obviously out of warranty opened the case and plugged in just to see if maybe it was the enclosure, but it was the drive.

Other Thoughts: Guess one year warranty means you shouldn't expect it to last two years?

This drive mostly sat around on my shelf, so it's not like it should have been worn out or anything.

Pros: I bought these when they were on sale at a major discount to upgrade from my '200' megabit other-brand powerline adapters. I have to say I'm mostly pretty impressed. The previous ones had some noticeable performance issues when panning streaming movies and such. Those problems are all gone now. I can jump to wherever I want in a movie in XBMC and it starts playing instantly. So far reliability has been perfect.

Cons: They are kind of big, so despite having a pass-through you'll only be able to plug in one of them to a normal outlet, thus depriving you of a socket anyway. That said they work fine and there are some easy workarounds to the 'problem.'

Other Thoughts: Just a huge improvement. Also worked out of the box with my ZyXEL 500 Mbps 4-port powerline switch.
