1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Worked great, quick transfers large storage

Cons: Crapped out just past the one year warranty. Now it makes a nice paperweight.

Other Thoughts: Why can't they just build one that lasts.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed drive

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Not sure.

Cons: Does not boot up 16 months after using it. Lost a lot of data. Hope Seagate can help recover it. I will post a review after that process.

Other Thoughts: 1 year warrantee not enough.

1 out of 5 eggsdied at the end of 2nd year

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: 3Tb was good in 2012

Cons: Died before reaching 2 years. Lost 3Tb of data. 1 year warranty is a joke. Heard enough stories of drives going dead right after the warranty id expired, they are true. I have 5 years old 500mb drive and it still works. Modern Seagates is a no-no.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong after a year

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: I purchased two of these almost a year ago. They are both going strong. I just took a look at my SMART values and the temperatures on several of my drives are about 40C - but these are still going strong anyway. (need to fix airflow, but that's not the drives' fault).

Cons: The drive case was kind of difficult to open. Short warranty (1yr), which I probably voided by opening up the case to get the bare drives out.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Dish Hopper

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: This is the perfect drive for the Dish Hopper DVR. It is one of only a few 3TB drives that will be recognized and fully usable by the Hopper.

Cons: Not the cheapest 3TB drive.

3 out of 5 eggsdead

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: I bought this as a storage unit for my media center and it worked great. it was fast and quiet, the only way you knew it was on was by the little blue light.

Cons: died in 11 months, you can feel it spin up and the computer installs the drivers but the drive won't show up. I'm currently trying to send it back. I hate that I lost almost 2tb worth of media

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible Warranty Good Price

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Space for backing up everything. Good price. USB 3 makes backup faster than USB 2. Works on USB 2 ports too but at slower speed.

Great service at Newegg with Premier

Cons: Cheap Warranty of only ONE YEAR! Cheap construction

Other Thoughts: Check out competing brands / models. Other brands have 3 year warranty of the same capacity at approximately the same price.

I don't have much confidence in a drive with only a one year warranty. Will not buy a drive with only a one year guarantee again

1 out of 5 eggswarranty ends - unit dies

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Worked great for over a year

Cons: one month after the manufacturer's warranty ended the unit completely died. computer won't recognize it, blue LED won't even come on. what good is a hard drive if you have to worry about this?

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Good size, decent price. Bought to store movies, music, photos and documents, and worked well for the first year.

Cons: Short life. Ordered this drive on July 8th 2013. July 26th, 2014 the drive was unresponsive. Looking through event logs, I see that it started having significant problems on June 30th, which I failed to catch in time. 1 year of life seems to short to waste that much money on.

4 out of 5 eggsDrive Works Great, But....

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Cost, Storage Capacity

Cons: Included USB cable does not meet 3.0 spec despite having 3.0 connectors, see other thoughts for more details.

Other Thoughts: Purchased as add-on storage for Xbox One. At first attempt drive was detected as USB 2.0 and therefore not compatible with an Xbox One, after various troubleshooting steps, the included USB 3.0 cable was proven to be the issue, testing with another USB 3.0 cable resulted in immediate detection and formatting of drive for use with Xbox One. If you buy this drive for use with an Xbox One do yourself a favor and purchase a high quality USB 3.0 cable at the same time.
