This Expansion drive was extremely easy to set up. Out if the box it was plug and play. The usb 3.0 interface is a definite plus versus usb 2.0. I have yet to utilize the 3.0 transfer speed because I don't have usb 3.0 yet. I have it connected to my router via the usb 2.0 port and it performs perfectly. I'm able to stream movies from this drive using a Gigabit LAN server also connected to my router. The expansion drives speed works so well, that there is no buffering during movie. Once the movie starts, there is an initial buffer, then it's smooth sailing. I can only imagine how well this will perform once I upgrade to usb 3.0.

I purchased one of these on 10/9/13. It was very straightforward to use: plug into AC, attach via USB to computer, drive is autodetected, and backup my data. So far, great.

On 11/26/13, about 7 weeks after purchase, I went to do my weekly back up of business files, and the drive was not recognized. My computer acted as if it didn't exist. I tried restarting both the drive and my computer. I tried it on my other systems, same result. I went to the Seagate site and went through their troubleshooting steps. Nothing changed.

I have owned several other backup drives over the years, most still functioning. None have ever failed so suddenly nor so completely. And CERTAINLY none have failed in such a short time. I am totally disappointed in this product.

I've done business with Staples for years, and trusted that they'd be able to help. However, when I called them, I was told that they only exchange or refund these type of items within 14 days of purchase. Since it had been 7 weeks or so, they were not able to be helpful in this matter other than to refer me to Seagate.

Seagate WILL do an exchange, but there are some serious issues with their requirements. First, I pay postage. Furthermore, and more importantly, they warn me to remove my data from the drive before sending it in, as they send the defective drives to another country for refurbishment, and they cannot guarantee my data will not be compromised. (They will send a refurbished or new drive to replace this one) Obviously, since my drive is not functional it isn't possible to remove the data. However, I was informed, for a fee greater than the original purchase price, they will recover my data for me. I don't need the data RECOVERED, I simply need a way to completely ERASE it!!

Here is the summary:

1) I purchased this drive on 10/9/2013.

2) It simply stopped functioning after only 7 weeks. (The disk spins intermittently, but it is not recognized by any computer system)

3) Staples policy only allows refunds/exchanges for 14 days post purchase for tech items, at least.

4) To get a working replacement drive from Seagate, I must spend the cost of shipping and a data recovery fee that is MORE than I spent on the drive originally, to get my data back. Still unclear if they'll erase the data before sending it overseas for repair. (This in itself is a deal-killer; I would not be willing to risk my data security)

5) As a result of the above, it would cost me more than twice of the original purchase price to have a working replacement, and I still have no faith that the replacement will perform any better than the original, nor that my data will not end up in the wrong hands. I refuse to spend good money after bad, or compromise my data.

6) THEREFORE, I have purchased a very expensive high-tech doorstop. Don't let it happen to you.

PS:I intend to spend the money I COULD spend to get the replacement from Seagate to get a more reliable brand drive from a vendor that has a more generous refund/replace/repair policy. I'll still go to Staples for less volatile products, I've had a long and happy business relationship with them otherwise.

stay way from all seagate products

Comments about Seagate Expansion 2TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

I purchased my first seagate 2 terrabyte desk top external hard drive 2 years ago and took all of my photos off my computer so that I could speed up my computer....and everyone said to me you should have at least 2 back ups if not 4. with in the year it stopped working. just stopped. Seagate charges you $399 to take off photos OR documents. If you want both off it is $699. A bargain considering staples charges you $1,200 dollars. So I did not have the fund to do that but they sent me a refurbished one. I was wary to used it but I had not choice at that time. Then my computer was acting up (don't get me started on Toshiba) so I went to staples and the only portable external hard drive they had was ...you guessed it Seagate. Now less than a year again and it has failed. The only plus is that I MIGHT be able to get my info off with recovery .software. I needed it and the employee said he has never heard of any problems with them....but 2 months later a different Staples employee said no they are unreliable and cow chips stay away...well it was too late to by then. I am unfamiliar with other brands but I k now one thing I would rather do with out an external hard drive and take my chances then buy another seagate. I would have given it a negative star if that were available...The only good thing I can say is it is portable and light weight but what good is that if it fails all the time.

Bought this to use as a home network backup. Unpacked it, plugged it in to my modem/router, and I was saving away in minutes! Doesn't get any easier than this. I haven't had any problems at all with this device.

I have only been using the Seagate Expansion 2TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive for a couple of weeks and I love its speed and quiet operation. The price is very reasonable for a drive this size and it totally fulfills my backup needs.
