Seagate Desktop Expansion Drive 4TB Seagate Desktop Expansion STBV4000100 Review

The Seagate 4TB Expansion External Desktop USB 3.0 Hard Drive provides you with a huge amount of data storage capabilities and transfer speeds. However, in the tradeoff, it loses in portability.

 

Such an ample space lets you organize the clutter of your music, movies, documents, pictures and other assorted data on your computer. For all those computer enthusiasts for whom couple of terabytes won’t suffice, the Seagate 4TB external comes as a handy and convenient option. With this much storage space, you can make copies of all the important data that you may have and store it separately for added security.

 

The Seagate Expansion External Desktop Hard Drive uses USB 3.0 as its transferring channel, providing you with a robust transfer rate of 4.8Gbps though that may vary depending upon your processor speed, storage transfer medium and minor additional factors. Seagate’s intent behind this product seems very clear – it wants its customers to be able to do and store more without fretting about the storage space or other complications. Even the usage of the hard drive is very easy: all you are required to do is simply plug the unit in and attach the USB cord and you are ready to go. There are no hassles of installing confusing software, which is the case with some other products in the category.

 

The 3.5 inch hard drive is spacious enough and priced low enough that will allow you to backup multiple computers data without shelling out too much money, in case you have such needs. But, being a desktop drive, it lacks the feature of portability. You can use it to back up drive for multiple computers in an office or a home, although you are not going to prefer carrying the drive and its power supply. The USB 3.0 gives you pretty fast transmission speed (up to 10 times the speed of a 2.0 USB port), given that you have the right port on your computer to support it. This feature comes quite handy as with it there is no need to sit and wait around watching your bigger files transfer at a crawling speed. The transmission speed is faster than its preceding models and similar to a built in drive. The model is also backward compatible with USB 2.0, providing additional system compatibility and much needed flexibility.

 

Hard Drives, being complex mechanical devices, have a tendency of failing over a period of time. They will absolutely and inevitably fail at some point – but it is absolutely mandatory that this life period is extended for as long as possible. There have been numerous models from reputed brands that have been below average standard wise. So getting a feedback from customers will give you clearer picture on the performance and quality of a hard drive. Though it’s little to early comment on the drive installed in this particular model of Seagate, the early feedback was mainly composed by positive reviews. Moreover, the low pricing of this model makes it a comfortable buy even knowing the fact that it’s not a lifetime product. All in all, this is a sober and efficient unit that will attend the needs of those looking for a simple, straightforward hard disk drive. 

  • The Good :
    Quiet operation; Fast connection; Easy to set up and to use; Large capacity
  • The Bad :
    Lacks portability, which is a significant feature these days
