    So far so good!

    Only owned for a few hours. First off, this thing is TINY and LIGHT. I can hardly believe it coming from my 500GB Lacie monster from a few years ago and it looks good too! The USB cable is a Micro Type A to standard USB and its only about a foot long so keep that in mind. This has a Samsung drive in it - ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB - part of the Momentus 5400 family, has a 16MB buffer, 300MB/sec Buffer-Host max rate, 5400rpm, 2 Platters (I think), 12ms seek time, 11ms rotational time, 5.56ms rotational latency. Max power during seek is 2.4W, idle 1.2W, standby .4W, disk runs at about 30 degrees Celsius. Power runs off USB only which is great!Using USB 3.0 First transfer was 4-5 minutes for 22Gigs at an average of 75MB/s. Second transfer was about 2.5 minutes for 15Gigs at about 90MB/s (50MB/s-108MB/s depending on file type). Third transfer was about an hour for 215Gigs, averaged 80MB/s and got up to 44 degrees Celsius, might want to put it somewhere cool or with fan access for... 5/5 UltraDoom - See all my reviews This review is from: Seagate Expansion Plus 1TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STCN1000100) (Electronics) Only owned for a few hours.

    Easy-to-Use, Compact, Sleek Little Drive w/ Great Legs - Highly Recommended A++

    I recently purchased a Seagate BackUp Plus 1 TB USB 3.0 Portable Drive and have been impressed with this sleek, compact, quiet running drive that does its job admirably. Many thanks to the many user comments which helped in my decision making process. This review will focus on Styling, Setup / Ease of Use, Performance, Reliability and Value- STYLING / STURDINESS (5/5): The Seagate Backup Plus 1TB Drive arrives in a 8" x 10" cardboard box (not much bigger than the dimensions of the actual drive) and includes just the bare essential components - the Portable Drive itself, 1 USB 3.0 connector cable, 1 Warranty Booklet and 1 Setup Instruction Guide. The Portable Drive itself (reviewing a red 1 TB version) weighs no more than a current generation dataphone (iphone etc) and boasts a brushed metallic red finish on the top / cover plate which is aesthetically pleasing, as well as functional - in that it feels sturdy to the touch and does not seem to attract fingerprints. Given... 5/5 J. Tharayil - See all my reviews, July 30, 2012

    Perfect For My Needs.

    Update February 25, 2014Completely full and still running strong; haven't had one minute of problem with it. i bought a second one last year and it's still running great too. but again, i never installed and do not use the back-up software; i simply use it as external storage for movies, music, software programs, images, etc.Update August 19, 2013500 gig later and it still runs smooth and silent. 400 gig of space still free, but for $88, i'm buying another one.Original review August 6, 2012100% satisfied.A lot of the negative reviews are from people who are trying to use the automated back-up software, which is completely reasonable if it doesn't work for them, but for $99, I'm just using this as external storage; just drag and drop pictures, movies, music, etc to the drive and it's great. I didn't install a thing; just plugged it in and started moving files over. And so far, 100 gig later, there hasn't been a single "click" or "beep" to... 5/5 Trip Affleck - See all my reviews, August 6, 2012

    Same problem as others - my computer doesn't recognize the drive

    I have the same problem others have experienced: the computer just doesn't recognize the drive any more. I backed up a lot of my stuff on it, had no problems, worked fine for the 10 hours or so I used it to make the backup. Then one day I plugged it in and found that every time I tried to access it with Windows Explorer, Explorer would crash. So I rebooted the computer and...it stopped showing up! The drive just sits there and blinks at me like crazy as if it's crying out for help, but it doesn't show up in Explorer, Disc Managers, SeaTools for Windows, etc. One person here suggested to Mary that it was simply a matter of finding a drive that didn't have a letter and assigning a letter to it, but that's not feasible. It isn't recognized anywhere. Looking at the Seagate help forum (and these ratings), it seems I am not the only person who has experienced this.TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY, THEY MAKE YOU SHIP IT BACK IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING.

    Nice Drive

    USB 3.0 is a major improvement over the older 2.0 version, with speed up to 5 Gigabits/sec (versus 480 Megabits/sec of USB 2.0). Computers with USB 3.0 are still relatively rare but this SEAGATE Expansion 500 GB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive STAX500102 is backward-compatible to USB 2.0, which is what I got in my HP desktop. There was no connectivity problem. The hard drive is plug-N-play; within seconds after I plugged it in, it was up and running. A USB 3.0 cable is included. It is different in construction from USB 2.0 cables. A tiny green LED lights up when the connection is made. Like most of the portable hard drives, power is drawn from the computer via the USB cable. No AC transformer or cord is necessary. This hard drive is cool to the touch, even after prolonged usage. This drive is highly portable, measuring 3-1/4" X 5-3/8" X 5/8" thick. A backup software called Memeo is included. I did not install it. Frankly, I was leery of cluttering up my hard drive with unfamiliar... 5/5 Alan Rivière "Maggie's Dad" (Southwest, USA) - See all my reviews, August 5, 2011

    Not a bad cheap external, but not amazing

    I have quite a few external drives so I'm pretty familiar with their general specs, so honestly I wasn't expecting too much out of the Seagate Expansion drive. Other than the USB 3.0 connector, there's really nothing really "new" about this drive.The basics - it's a 2.5" 5400 RPM "green" drive - which means the disk has a habit of going to sleep when not in use, but it also means that it's pretty light on the power consumption. It's also quiet and has a very low heat signature. Average read/write speeds (over USB 3.0): 30/25 MBps (see "customer images" for my benchmark results).What it's good for:At 500GB, this drive is pretty small when compared to its 2-4TB neighbors. However this drive is nice because it's completely powered via USB and has a small footprint. The portability comes in handy when a USB memory stick just doesn't have enough room. And this is where the Expansion might be the best fit - as an IT Consultant it's nice to be able to have an... 4/5 Storm (Texas) - See all my reviews, September 12, 2011

    not such a good drive

    I have just returned my second failed Seagate 1 TB 3.0 USB External Drive.Both failed within 60 days of purchase (and one within 30 days). I have several of the USB 2.0 versions that work fine and have for quite a long time. Both failures of the 3.0 drive were total- the drive was not recognizable by my computer (or the other computer I tried them on), both power supplies were working fine and both cords were operational. The drive, when plugged in, would just start repetitively beeping and would not even spin up.I like Seagate drives- I have several FreeAgent drives which are first-class drives and the two Expansion 2.0 drives all of which have been great. The 3.0 model, however, is a dog and should be avoided. Go with the FreeAgent drives, which are dependable.The worse part of this was trying to deal with the manufacturer. I did the responsible consumer thing, went to the Seagate website and tried to create a return.
