5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Speeds

Pros: -Sequential write speeds in excess of 150MBps for my drive, transfers even large movie files very quickly
-No issues with stability or difficulty getting drive to connect
-relatively quiet, even just under my desk the only thing that can be heard is the drive spinning up for the first time

Cons: -Sometimes takes a few seconds to spin up and allow for file access, but this is pretty normal for a HDD

5 out of 5 eggsOver one year later...

Pros: Drive is fast. Faster than some of my internal drives. I'm sure there are other external drives faster, but I have been impressed with the speed of this on my USB 3.0 port. I also enjoy the look of the drive.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive since Jan 2014. It's been my backup lifeline. This is the first external drive I've had that could put up with the heat and use of constant backups. I have had no issues whatsoever. I have used this drive on my Ubuntu and Windows 7 systems.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Backup Drive

Pros: -1.81TB of solid memory after formatting
-Purchased it at a good price ($80 for 2TB? Not bad!)
-Hasn't had any failure while being used nonstop for the past 7 months, has only been powered down maybe twice and I've yet to experience any sort of problem.
-Form factor is solid

Cons: -LED on unit is incredibly bright, had to cover it up so it doesn't illuminate my room at night.

Other Thoughts: Well worth it for under $100.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable So Far

Pros: I've bought two of this drive so far. Both working flawlessly under heavy use. One is four or five months old now, the other about six weeks. Nothing to complain about, very good price.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsBad drive

Pros: Looks nice, easy to set up.

Cons: Started back up on Windows 7 Ult. Was moving way slower than 500GB worth of data should've moved. Let it run overnight and checked the next day to see that backup failed due to I/O error. Tried 2 more times w/same result (ensured no power options were set to turn off drives). Downloaded "Seatools" from Seagate's website to test drive and drive failed "Short Generic" test and "Long Generic" test wouldn't move past 00:00.

3 out of 5 eggsBe warned

Pros: Does work quickly and is easily installed

Cons: This drive will NOT work with any version of windows backup prior to windows 8 as it does not support 512E it only has native 4k sector sizes. Kind of sucks that seagate touts compatibility on the box when it fails at one of the task many people buy a drive for. As another mentioned here at least WD provides a utility for making it backup compatible.

Other Thoughts: If I had been paying close attention I would have bought a WD drive instead.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it a lot

Pros: It works great, I like not having an external case with a hard drive in it. I have many hard drives and external cases. Since it is a big 2TB hard drive and cheep. I don't see a reason to have an external case and different hard drives to go in it. If I need another hard drive, I would just buy another one of these. It feel solid, It's smaller than most cases with a hard drive in it.

Cons: Have not found any problems with it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent external hard drive

Pros: -Attractive looking black case
-Comes complete with USB cable and power cord
-Has a blue power/read/write LED to let you know you're plugged in and blinks during read/write sessions
-Read/Write speeds as very fast
- Very quiet running but hums a little when placed on a hard surface but I don't find that to be annoying
1.8 TB preformated disk space.

Cons: I haven't come across any yet.

Other Thoughts: I love this hard drive so much, I'm planning on purchasing the 4 TB external hard drive when it goes on sale. I need to unload 3 internal hard drives of files and this is the perfect solution for me. It's great for portable use too.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: Prompt shipping by Newegg

Cons: I've been through three rounds of RMAs trying to get one of these drives that will pass Seagate's own diagnostic tests. All have failed, and after spending roughly $18 to ship them back each time, I'm done throwing good money after bad. Bad Luck? Perhaps, but I won't be buying another one of these drives.
