This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA4000100 Black
Pros: Powers up, shows 3.63 tb available, quiet operation, transfers data
Cons: Caused my 16gb i7 64-bit Win 8.1 Pro system to shutdown when I first plugged the drive into a USB port. The plastic case is separating at the seam near the bottom of the unit on one side right out of the box. There's no way it would have passed quality control had the drive been physically inspected. The data transfer rate is less than stellar but it was a bargain price.
Other Thoughts: I'm returning it. I don't want a unit with a case broken out of the box.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid case
Drive mount and electronics end cap solid
Worked out of the box
Cons: The connector isn't the micro-usb connector that quality external 2.5" drive enclosures are sporting these day. It's a full size USB 2.0 connector. The proof is the 'what's in the box' photograph. It works but requires a cable with full sized USB connectors on both ends. Deducting a star for that. I didn't want to be carrying another cable with me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Construction and Design
Cons: Everything mentioned by N/A from the overly sensitive touchpad to the IR Blaster and it just wouldn't work with my Cisco DVR even with different control codes and possible model number alternatives suggested by my cable provider. Setup was not easy and took far too long. I didn't appreciate HBO Go just being a shortcut to the browser. I gave it the week as I really wanted the Cube to work for me. It doesnt.
Other Thoughts: This is the first Asus product I've been disappointed with. That list includes 4 laptops, a netbook, 9 motherboards, and a Nexus 7 tablet. I'm returning it. Newegg accepted the RMA with no issues.READ FULL REVIEW
