Keeps going into sleep mode,
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 2TB Desktop External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STCA2000100) (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Even after I disable sleep options in the Seagate Dashboard software, this thing still keeps going to sleep. It will stay powered on on systems where the Dashboard software was installed, but on other systems it goes to sleep after 15 minutes. I have of course disabled USB suspend features as well as HDD sleep features in Windows power options. Large transfers do get interrupted after a few minutes, and you have to keep hitting retry until it starts going again. Not very convenient. I will not have some additional software on my PC installed just to keep the drive from going to sleep.
Speed is OK. Variates between 20-60 MB/s on my USB 3.0 controller. Not exactly extraordinary, but faster than USB 2.0. Overall, I would not recommend this drive.

I had the same experience. It only gets up to 58Mbps speed. Not very great, because USB 3.0 is supposed to go up to DOUBLE that speed.
