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.

Good drive at good price

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

This hard drive is a little bit bigger than I expected. I already have the 1TB portable version that is powered only by USB, and this 2 TB Desktop is more than twice the size of that. The 1TB portable is much smaller than the 2TB desktop. But the 2TB is still smaller than your typical 2Tb drive, so all is good, relatively speaking. I mention this size difference primarily because when you look a the pictures of the 1TB next to the 2TB, they look awfully similar, but they are not. I was certainly fooled!

I just got the drive so I can't speak to its reliability. I will note that it does not have an on/off switch. When you plug it in, it turns on.

Given the price, it is a great hard drive!

Well pleased

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

Basically a plug and play external harddrive. Bought it for extra memory for my Dish Network DVR. Plug the USB into the receiver and into the hard drive, plug the power cord in and it re-formats itself automatically and then is ready. Only drawback on my older DVR receiver (not a Hopper) is that it takes a few minutes to transfer movies to the hard drive rather than seconds and the same is true with pulling movies back out of the hard drive to watch. The Dish repair man said on his unit (Hopper) he could save directly to the hard drive and pull back out quickly. Either way I am satisfied with this unit.

    I needed an additional drive for quickbook backups, this is perfect, It holds several, without bogging down my main hard drive. It's fairly compact and seems to do the job with no issues at all.
