    Seagate Expansion 1 TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX1000100

    I'm giving it only 3 stars just because of the size, it's BIGGER than described
    Bought the "Case Logic Portable EVA Hard Drive Case QHDC-101 - Gray" that amazon suggested as "Frequently Bought Together" but it just doesn't fit!!! >:(

    If the hard drive were the size stated it would fit perfectly

    Wrong measures stated here
    4.8 x 3.2 x 0.6 inches

    Correct measures
    5 x 3.5 x 0.78 inches

    Other than that, it works perfectly

    This hard drive only lasted about 30 days and crashed. I lost all my data and now can't return for full purchase price. Very disapointing product and customer service.

    why don't hd manufacturers understand that we don't want your awful bloatware preinstalled on our shiny new hard drives. make it downloadable with an in-box voucher or something but STOP SHOVING IT DOWN OUR THROATS. it SUCKS and NOT EVERYBODY WANTS IT. so no 5 stars for you! if you don't want it, cancel all attempted install prompts, open up the drive when it pops up in the finder/windows explorer, and DELETE!

    with that bit of nastiness out of the way, this is a perfectly fine external drive. it works quietly for now, but that may change some with age. from my very unscientific gut sense, it's write speeds are comparable to my 1tb wd my passport. i will say the drive does not feel as solid as my passport. maybe it's because it's not packed quite as tightly as the passport (the passport is slightly smaller). a minor quibble to say the least. it won't be moving a whole lot as it's a backup to a backup so it doesn't have to be built like a tank.

    other than the nonsense software which i will have none of, it's been a perfectly capable drive thus far.

    Just received my expansion drive. Took it out of the box and plugged it into my desktop and it was immediately recognized. Files transfered over in a flash and I was able to then unplug it and plug it into my laptop and immediately had access to the same files.

    Also set the drive to share out across my network and that works great.

    I've only had this a few days, but so far so good. I'm using USB 3.0 so it's very fast. It came pre-formatted NTFS and does not require any special drivers or software to use. It does include software to register the drive (registering can also be done on their website), but it can be deleted after registering. My only complaint is that the included USB 3 cable is very short, maybe 2 feet.

    I have a desktop external drive by seagate and had zero problems from it, so I naturally went with another seagate product and this one had fairly good reviews.

    When I opened the box and took out the drive, the first thing I noticed was the external case seemed loose and made a "clicking" sound near the USB port. With that much play in the case, I didn't see the drive holding up to being a portable drive to carry around. With seagate only offering a 1 year warranty, I was afraid to take my chances with the devise since they seemed to not have much faith in it as well.

    I returned the drive and ordered a western digital my passport which seems to be a sturdier devise.
