Seagate 3TB expansion external desktop drive
Photos Galore, B&H Photo

Excerpt: I run dual 2TB to 3TB external drives to store photos for my photography business; one drive to use as a primary work drive, one as a backup in case of failure (I also store an additional set off site-yes, I am paranoid about losing images).
Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Summary: As I understand Seagate bought out Maxtor but why aren't they using their excellent software? I have a 250GB Maxtor Plus One drive I use for backup which works beautifully. For the initial save, Seagate changes ALL file dates to the saving date!! WHY?
Excerpt: I read a review where someone said their unit was running hot - not mine! Cool as a cucumber. Lights-up fast! Hardly any spinn-up at all. Wish I'd bought two when they were on sale! Regards, Richard
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet
