Experience: 2 Years
Attractive price
Died after 2 years
Died after 2 years which is an unacceptable lifetime for an hard drive, I won't buy any seagate HDD again.

Experience: 2 Months
 Verified Owner
Works, sturdy metal case
Came with crapware
If you want external storage, this works fine. Format it for full capacity and off you go.
Case is sturdy, and had no issues working with it. Not much else to say about an external HD.
If it hadn't come with extra junk on the HDs, I would have given it 4 stars.

Experience: 3 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Fast, metal case, USB3.0
it come without a stand
Easy to use

Cheap when on sale. USB3. Huge. Does not overheat.
Case hard to open.
Bought 3 of them for a server. The case is hard to open but I cracked them open with thin cards. The internal drives are still covered by Seagate warranty according to their webpage. I reused the enclosures to sell previous drives to friends m a low price.

Experience: 30 Days
 Verified Owner
Cheap storage
Needs to connect both usb and power cable
Bought both WD MyBook and Seagate Expansion. Preferred the WD design, though the Seagate one is little smaller. Don't buy over $100. I bought both at $99 when there's a real sale.

Experience: 60 Days
 Verified Owner
Died after 66 hours!
I bought two of this HDD. One of them died after 2 months. It was only used for about 66 hours! It's the first time I encountered such a short life HDD! I will never buy products of Seagate again!

Experience: 15 Days
decent looking backup drive, simple look
slow drive speed
very simple connection, quiet and easy to use. i didnt bother with the on board seagate program, i just drag and drop  what ever i needed to save/changed from my previous stuff in the drive. 3tb is huge. probably i can stick with it and not fill it up within these few months

Seagate Expansion 3TB USB3.0
I buy the hard drive. made some months I use it works very well.
speed data transfer very fast and stable.

I highly recommend this hard drive

Experience: 3 Months
Simple Design
None that I can see so far
I did buy this at the $129 price and haven't regretted it. The USB3.0 speeds are great, the drive makes virtually no noise for me and I use it for my primary storage for my RAW files. Im even thinking of picking up another one to attach to my WD MyCloud too as that has a USB3.0 port for expandibility

Experience: 1 Years
does its job
very poor usb connection into drive
the USB connection is very poor have found even the slightest movement will cause the drive to disconnect they should have stayed with standard USB connection on both ends.
