1 out of 5 eggsAdd me to the list of failures...

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

Pros: Price was OK at the time (assuming it doesn't die).

Cons: It dies after the 1 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: The wife told me the computer was a bomb and was about to blow up (it was "ticking"). Determined it was the Seagate backup drive and noticed it wasn't being recognized. Unplugged power and USB, re-plugged, same thing... click click click click and not recognized. If anything is going to fail in computers it's the mechanical hard drive, so while not great it's also not the first hard drive I've had to get replaced under warranty (from many manufacturers). To my surprise, I found it was already out of it's measly 1 year warranty. I should have known better than to buy a drive with only a 1 year warranty, but that still doesn't make any excuse for a drive that hasn't seen that much use to fail in that amount of time.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't last a month

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

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Failed within a month. Lost all data. Have to deal with Seagate's warranty process.

Other Thoughts: I've had the internal version of this model (3TB) fail too. It's an okay drive if you have it backed up, but don't expect it to last very long.

1 out of 5 eggs3 Tb version prone to failure

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

Pros: decent amount of space

Cons: very short life span and premature failure
overheating

Other Thoughts: The 3 Tb version of this drive dies prematurely or just after the 1yr warranty period. If you're lucky enough to have it die within the warranty period you'll have to deal with Seagate's convoluted and confusing warranty process. You will then receive your not-trustworthy refurbished drive. Horrible drive, horrible company. Steer clear of this one.

1 out of 5 eggsDisgruntled with Seagate

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

Pros: None

Cons: My original drive died within a year. The replacement died last night. I am going through the RMA process with SEAGATE yet again. I have absolutely no confidence with their products. I had two other 3TB internal drives die too.

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
