  • DO NOT BUY - Its cheap for a reason
    Reviewed by DontBuySeagate - 25 mars 2018

    I had bought two of these over a period of 1 year, and the first one had read/write errors while copying files, the second one was a complete and utter waste. Died on me on 3rd day of use (had the ticking sound). Further more for their warranty does not support data recovery or one way shipping, you have to pay for everything to utilize the warranty. They only send you a new drive. This drive also goes on SALE during various times in the year, do not buy it regardless. They have a high failure rate that's why they go on sale, no one who has dealt with Seagate product buys another. The parts are made and assembled in China and Thailand.

  • Excellent Value for Archival Storage
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TechJunkie - 11 septembre 2017

    The Seagate Backup Plus Hub 8TB External USB 3.0 hard drive is an outstanding value for the price, providing the lowest cost per TB of storage I've been able to find. The trade off for this is the relatively slow and power conservative 5900RPM archival drive housed in the chassis. This can become a problem is you intend on heavy usage where performance is a concern. If you want cheap storage for rarely accessed files or an inexpensive way to improve your backup situation, this is a great choice. If you want to regularly use the hard drive for directly running files, especially from multiple sources spend the extra money for a non-archival drive.

  • Tons of Storage at an Affordable Price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JerryW - 25 décembre 2016

    I've been using Seagate external hard drives for the past few years with much success. I needed to upgrade to an 8TB drive to store video files that were housed on several different, smaller external drives. I purchased this 8TB Seagate for a great deal during a recent sale. The drive functioned perfectly out-of-the-box. My computer automatically recognized the drive without having to download any drivers or software. I've loaded over 2TB of data so far and it has not failed once. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it's a tad slow when it kicks on from sleep mode -- most people won't really notice so it's not a major con.
