This is my 3rd Seagate unit (the other two are 5TB size). Unfortunately, one of the older units gave indications of dying and I bought the 8TB unit. I formatted the 8TB unit with the Mac Disk Utility and was up and running in less than 10 minutes. And the unit is working perfectly.
Bought this drive to mine Burst, a coin like Bitcoin that is mined with hard drive space as opposed to CPU cycles. The drive is spinning constantly but doesn't get too hot. You can hear it, barely, but that's probably because my system is otherwise all SSD. I'll probably buy another one.
7.5 TB usable, no formatting necessary, works out of the box
Not for anyone who owns Apple products unless you are willing to reformat the unit (search internet to get instructions)
inexpensive and works good
not programmed for Apple products out of the box, but setting it up for this use was done after online searchs
I have been purchasing these drives for a while now an, so far none of these drives have failed me. The drive is also very fast and has allowed me to transfer many GB of data in a very short amount of time. I would recommend this drive due to its high value.
It took about 16 hours backing up 2.2TB of files in Toshiba 3TB HDD to this HDD. The transfer rate keeps fluctuating from 5MB/s to 115MB/s. The picture shows the result of CrystalDiskMark. I partitioned first 6.7TB as storage. The result came from not on USB, but internally connected by SATA.
A 3TB expansion for this price is really fantastic and the quality is top ranking.
I connected the supplied USB 3 cable and plugged in the power transformer. Windows 10 did the rest, no divers or software. It worked perfectly the first time. My only comment is a little noise when it "wakes up" after my computer sleeps. You'll notice that when you're in a quiet area.
I previously reviewed the 8TB Seagate Backup Plus drives. I am happy to say there have been NO failures of the 21 drives in 9 months. I recently needed to upgrade my 'Movie' computer and bought 6 more drives. While I did not encounter any failures, I was disappointed.
8TB and it just works.
One year warranty. Kinda slow on re-writes.
I have owned this for just over 9 months now and am very happy with my purchase. I will definitely recommend this drive.
great stability and plenty of space to backup all of our data
none so far
Purchased these to replace an older Seagate with smaller storage space. So far so good. No issues yet. Hope they last a while.
