Cheap guts cheap guts cheap guts HELLO WD or even SAMSUNG, HST hah. 12/1/2018 6:35:42 AM

Pros: usb3 speeds. . . . that is about all.

Cons: I have oh lets see 20 of these things of various sizes and styles. I just had one of these glossy blue bottom ones just fail. Not even 2/3ds full and I get reformat to use drive and when scanned is full of realocated sectors pending. I can never fill one of these drives up before I get this. So far I have lost 6 of these. Getting a new one is a waste as they send you a refirb that was a yellow zone dead sector drive from someone elses return in a scratched up casing and it will fail in less than 3 months. Almost always the refirbs will just DIE. No chance to recover stuff. All it is is a scam to get you to pay the ridiculous prices to get them to recover your data. I would not be surprised if the errors are placed on the platters on purpose.

Overall Review: If you plan to copy to it in one go or fill it up in a week and just put it away in a closet you might get some data safety but other than that your better off getting high performance internals and one of those docks and going that route. I have internal drives from 1994 that still WORK. Why today they cannot make a drive that can be written to fully at least twice IE all sectors written to at least twice is beyond me. It is like you are lucky to not get a defective platter and have a usable drive in full in all the bits you paid for. So far each 4tb 5tb 6 and one 8tb drive I had I got about 70% of the space I paid for before it failed. None of the failures are more than a year old. It is almost like you should run a process to read and write on the entire surface of the drive before you use it. Seagate, used to be quality in anything they made. I have piles of dead wd garbage but now seagate is filling the gun range donation box in the truck.

Engineered to fail 3/30/2016 9:16:56 PM

Pros: . Very shiny black case looks nice

Cons: I love it when a product dies just days out of warrantee. It almost seems engineered that way

Overall Review: I buy about a hundred hard drives a year. I've been burned by Seagate before but I guess it was long enough I thought to try a newer model. Sorry Seagate, you are on my avoid list again.

Lots Of Space, Linux Friendly 2/20/2016 8:00:06 AM

Pros: Lots of space, and makes for an excellent backup drive. I purchased this drive to add to a second same drive, to make backups of two 1 TB drives on a rotational, every other day, and one on the weekend. The drive was instantly recognized (even on my Linux system, as a NTFS drive, and fdisk reported about three partitions pre-loaded on it. The drive took a Linux Ext4 format, and one large 3.6 TB drive (format capacity). As stated in another review, the drive has a nice indicator light, but gets covered easily if you stack your drives (as the light is in the back on the top of the drive). My other drive (same model) has been running 24x7 for months now, without a hitch.

Cons: No power switch, you have to unplug the power to turn the drive off. Hassle, but not worth the loss of an egg for. Especially since I leave the drive on 24x7.

Power / Activity light is in a problematic place. Being on the top, and at the back, of the drive, when set on its feet. As stated by a previous review, stacking the drive with other drives, covers the light. I staggered my two drives so you can see the indicator better, but more than two drives doing this, would be bothersome.

Overall Review: I bought my first drive from another online store, and when my 2 TB external (in a docking station) gave up, I wanted to upgrade it to this drive. Going back to the same store, found they were out of stock of this drive. I checked NewEgg, and found the same drive. Price was competitive, and the unit shipped and was received very fast. The drive worked perfectly out of the box, and was quickly formatted with my usual Linux EXT4 format. If this drive lives up to my other (same drive from the other online store) external 4 TB drive, I can't complain. Both drives are on 24x7, and need to be, as they provide backing up of my main internal drives all through the week.
