    JPP's Seagate - Expansion 4TB External Hard Drive

    3.63 TB ( actual size ) is not the 4 TB size that was advertised, However, the product so far is trouble free and quiet, I have been able to easily ( and super fast ) transfer data from my old 2 TB external to the new 4 TB one. If there is a drawback, it is that the blue light on top of the unit blinks while data is being transferred and it makes falling asleep somewhat harder as the whole room lights up in a blue hue. I placed a piece of paper over the unit to dull the light. I like that It also lays flat on my desk instead of the standing photo which was shown in the advertisement, as this makes it impossible to fall over. I think I will be purchasing a second one along with the Universal driver adapter, so I can transfer data from other drives which have stopped working. If you are not aware of what the Universal Driver Adapter is, check it out on YouTube and I'm sure you'll be getting one as well. It saved me over $1600.00 so far, as some data retrieval services can charge between $800 - $1200 a drive. The Seagate - Expansion 4TB External USB 3.0/2.0 Hard Drive is definitely a good purchase and should have been given 4 and a half stars, ( but there is no way to give a half star ) in my humble opinion.

    WRONG PRODUCT LISTED

    I purchased this drive through Best Buy's website and when I opened the package it was Seagate's older model. I checked their website and they have pictures of the newer Seagate 4TB drive (STEB4000100) but are actually selling the older discontinued model. When I called to return the item I received attitude from their rep and was told that they would report the issue. After calling them again a month later, I got the same song and dance that they would report the issue. It's going on 2 months of this so I decided to write this review to warn others that they won't receive the drive pictured.

    I would give this product 5 stars, except for the fact that my drive DIED after only 4 months. Warranty replacement was extremely simple, however, and Seagate had a new working hard drive back to me within a week. I am giving 4 stars for their very quick service and am hoping I just had bad luck with the first unit. Other positive reviews would suggest that is the case. The drive is not very compact, it is pretty bulky, and it does require external power source. I keep mine standing vertically on my desk (as pictured in the product image) which takes up less space.

    Was just looking for a good external hard drive for my husbands xbox. It’s a bit bulky but it does the job well...I don’t think he’ll ever fill it up completely in his whole life, but it’s nice that we have all the room if we ever need it. It was super easy to set up, just know that one you format it to the Xbox then all you can use it for is an Xbox, which of course is fine for us since that’s all we need it for.

    What a great little device! It's so easy to use and it holds a ton of stuff. I now have a few of them so I have a back up. It's so nice to just scroll through categories that I created to watch the movie I'm in the mood for. I have started giving my DVDs and blu rays to relatives which is freeing up a lot of space on my book shelves. I can actually put books on them now! Love this product and highly recommend it!!

    I have used the product before and decided to upgrade to a larger capacity. As before, I've had a seamless user experience. This is what I needed and it performs as I expected. The kicker was the price: close to half off what BestBuy's competitors listed. Oh, and it took all of three days to ship: order was placed Thanksgiving morning and received on Monday morning.

    Dont buy Seagate drivers.

    Bought this and later i wanted to change sleep time when the drive is idle. Cant do it because Seagate Drive Setting requires Windows XP, Vista or 7 while i am using Windows 10. No kidding a tech company want you to use out of date OS like XP and Vista to use its softwares.
