Disappointed - Seagate Expansion 2 TB USB 3.0 Desktop Exernal Hard Drive STAY2000102

Starkid, Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: First of all, a big thumbs-up for Amazon's return policy - without it I would have been kicking myself for purchasing this hard drive. 5 Stars plus for Amazon! Now on the hard drive. It arrived on a Thursday. The physical appearance was appealing, and the size was great. The USB 3 connector on the unit looked distorted, but the cable was plugged in with no problem.

Reasonable speed, poor construction.

Nicholas E. Johansen, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: When I received the box, I realized something was wrong. It rattled -- never a good sign with an electronic component. Something was loose within the hard drive's casing. Nonetheless, it seemed to work fine, powering on when I plugged in the power adapter. When I inserted the USB cable, Windows 7 recognized the drive just fine. I formatted the drive, removing all of Seagate's pre-installed software and proceeded to copy over 50 GBs of music.

Sara Plain and Tall

Rex Kullmann, Amazon
10 August 2011
  • Summary: This external drive lives in the plainest of black plastic cases. On the front is an all white Seagate logo and next to that a small green LED power/busy light. Plug it in and you'll find few files stored in it. A back-up utility, some set-up files, user guides and not much else. Just a lot of empty space. No stands, no back-lit logos, no extra inputs. On the back you'll find a power input and a USB 3 jack.

Crack the plastic box open and take the drive out

DeanWest, Dick Smith

  • Summary: Ive never been a fan on external drives , so every time i buy one of these i just crack the plastic case and rip out the drive itself. the casing is cheap plastic , much better off installing it in a machine or an external SATA drive cradle that way you are not relying on the cheap plastic case , limited circuit boad to control the power adaptor.
  • Pros: good internals
  • Cons: bad externals and power set up

Solid performing disks inside cheap cases

macro44, Dick Smith
19 March 2014
  • Summary: While the disks are nothing short of excellent, the casing and cheap power-supply drag down the quality of the units as a whole (stories abound about unit failures near 1 year mark; although disks are still good inside when extracted).
  • Pros: st2000dm001 2tb 7200 rpm 64mb cache sata 6.0gb/s, 90mb/s read/write, excellent quality drives
  • Cons: cheap enclosure, cheap powersupply, flimsy usb3 cable

Wouldnt recommend

ReviewMarch2014, Dick Smith
13 March 2014
  • Summary: Ive only owned it for ONE WEEK but it's already had multiple issues. I tried to use it for the second time and it wouldn't show in My Computer. Luckily I was able to fix it after an hour of online forum searching, but I'm expecting future problems after what Ive read. ONLY buy this if you have a backup of a backup - if you just rely on this you will likely lose ALL your data.
  • Cons: breaks easily probably made of cardboard

  • Summary: My first 2TB expansion died after 6 moths of use. The unit simply stopped getting power and the replacement did exactly the same after 4 weeks of use.
