1 out of 5 eggsAbout a Year

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

Pros: It was cheap

Cons: Only lasted a year

Other Thoughts: I've been building my own computers for the last 15yrs. I've probably been through 20 or 30 drives in that time with different setups and RAIDs and all that.

This was the first drive I've ever had actually crash on me.

It never moved, it just sat in a closet connected to a home server serving up some videos every now and again.

2 out of 5 eggsMostly OK for a year.

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

Pros: Worked for a year.

Cons: Would sometimes have a momentary stutter during file transfers. I thought this might be normal until after a year of ownership, the drive started disconnecting entirely.
I managed to retrieve most of the files by powering it down and back up again each time it disconnected.

Other Thoughts: There is a reason this drive has only a year's warranty. It may have been cheaper than other drives available, but if I have to buy another in a year's time, I might as well just get a drive from a more reliable manufacturer.

1 out of 5 eggsVery unreliable drives, one already crashed, the other one is unstable with bad sectors

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

Pros: read cons

Cons: These drives are very reliable, don't store important stuff on these junk unless you have a backup.

I bought two if these on Nov 17th 2012, they are both sat on a desk on top of a notebook cooler, I never move them around.

2 days ago, one of the drive has crashed completely and I can't even read the drive anymore, so my datas are all gone, the other drive is about to die too as the SMART on diskinfo showing caution, so I'm in the process of transferring the data on that drive to a new samsung 4TB. I have 3 other internal hard drives 3TB/3TB/4TB that I bought way before these external drives and they are still running fine without problems.

These drives can't even last for 2 years, you are basically paying seagate $100 every 2 years per drive, some people can't even get these junk to last for 1 year, I only got 2 years outta them and I lost over 2tb of data.

Luckily, I paid with a visa card, I think my visa card has extended warranty that extend the manufacturer's warranty by an extra year, shame on you seagate, you did this on purpose, making your drive last such short time. I can tell you are doing this on purpose just by seeing how your stock has performed, you screw with your customers to benefit your share holders.

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.
