4 out of 5 eggsQuietest one yet

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: Almost no vibration, nearly silent

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is my first ST2000DM001-1ER164. My other Seagate Expansions contained ST2000DM001-1E6164 or ST2000DM001-1C614. One of those 1E6164 drives was so noisy and shakey that I exchanged it (great Newegg service).

I've found no relationship between country of origin and noise/vibration level for Seagates.

In a previous review I incorrectly identified the internals as STBV2000100, which is the model for the external drive.

3 out of 5 eggsQuieter than my last one

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: Acceptably quiet, much quieter than the previous one.

Cons: Still slightly noisier than my other samples of this model,

Other Thoughts: This sample was an STBV2000100-E1E64 from Thailand, my much noisier previous one was from China, but I haven't noticed a relationship between country of origin and noise level.

All of my 2TB Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 drives have included 7200 RPM, 1TB/platter internal drives, either an STBV2000100-1E6164 or ST2000DM001-1CH64, and it appears the latter drives tend to be quieter

1 out of 5 eggsReplacement also failed diagnostic test

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: None

Cons: Failed Seagate SeaTools Short Generic diagnostic test.

Other Thoughts: This was replacement drive from Newegg. First drive failed same test. Sending 2nd failed drive back to manufacturer Seagate. Don't want to take the chance I'll get another bad drive from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what I need it to do.

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: Great drive that works with my DISH receiver and allows me to enable my DVR function. Small and runs quiet. The price was great(purchased on sale). I have no complaints.

Cons: No real cons, however I can't comment on the functionality of this drive when connected to a computer.

Other Thoughts: I was worried about the fact that this is a USB 3.0 drive and DISH doesn't list compatibility with USB 3.0. When I connected the drive the receiver recognized the drive with no problem.

1 out of 5 eggsWas good...was...

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: It was pretty much plug and play. No need to install anything. Everything went smoothly.

Cons: Failed after around 6 months of minimum usage. I only have a few files on it really...Plugged it in and hear clicking noises. I know enough to understand its hard drive failure, however I don't know enough to trust myself to repair or recover the files.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if I want another to replace it at the moment. More worried about the files I have lost. I mean I understand this kind of component failure is rare, but still, this is rather inconvenient. I will definitely look into buying a replacement, but I am going to do a little more research.

2 out of 5 eggsLoudest one yet

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: Works, no bad sectors showing up on the surface scan (half-way done), working at USB 3.0 speed, not USB 2.0 speed like some other Seagates I've owned (each time, a cable problem)

Cons: LOUD. Considerably louder than any of my other Seagate Expansions of the same capacity and internal drive speed (7200 RPM). I compared it with one of my older Expansions by placing it horizontally on the same table, and the older drive was so much quieter and vibrated so much less that i first thought it wasn't even spinning. Most of its vibration that could be felt on the older drive originated from the newer drive. Even when I put the new drive on a pad of 1" thick foam, it was louder than the older drive sitting directly on the hard table.

Other Thoughts: The walls of Jericho would have come down faster if this drive had been available in ancient times.

The loud, shaky drive is an ST2000DM001-1E6164, the older drive tested with it is an ST2000DM001-1C6164. I don't know how that matters.

I've returned only two other brand new drives in the past 25 years, both for excessive vibration, but this may become the third one.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed Diagnostic Tests

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: Worked great. Very fast transfers with USB 3.0.

Cons: Failed manufacturer diagnostic tests.

Other Thoughts: I was concerned about the quality of this drive after reading some other reviews. I ran the Seagate SeaTools diagnostic tests. It failed the Short Generic and Long Generic tests.

I purchased this drive for backup purposes and can't take a chance on this drive. I am returning it to Newegg after having it less than one week.

5 out of 5 eggsused with mac mini

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: I purchased this drive for my mother in laws mac mini. Its more space than she will ever need, but for the price point it was worth it. The mac instantly recognized it and asked if i wanted to set up time machine for back up. Install was simple and easy. came with all the needed cables.

Cons: Not really a con, but it has an external power supply

Other Thoughts: I got this when it was on sale, and then also had a promo code. I paid about $65 for it.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't get to my data

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100 Black

Pros: large drive

Cons: can't get to transferred data. I let windows 7 install the software automatically and tell me the hardware was ready to use.
I created 6 folders on the new drive and named each for what I was going to backup to each
I transferred 36.8 Gigabytes from another drive to this drive.

Now when I plug in the drive the folders do not show. The space is shown as taken but I can't get to the data.

Seagate has not been of any real help so far. after 2 emails.

Other Thoughts: I have a number of other 2TB Seagate external drives and have never had this problem.
The worst part is the data was original material with no other backup.
I wouldn't buy another of this model drive.
