Don't let your data dictate your day - give it a little breathing room with the Seagate 4TB Expansion External Desktop USB 3.0 Hard Drive. The extra storage space gives you plenty of room to store, secure, and share your data.

You'll have plenty of opportunity and few excuses to finally organize those pictures, movies, music, documents, and other assorted data that you've been putting off for months. With this much storage space, you could make copies of all that data and store it separately for extra security.

The Expansion External Desktop line uses USB 3.0 as its transfer channel, giving you a robust 4.8Gbps transfer rate (your data transfer rate may vary due to processor speed, storage transfer medium, and other factors). You can store more, do more, and breathe easier with this kind of storage power behind you. You are ready to go as soon as you open the box. Simply plug the unit in, then attach the USB cord, and boom! No files to install, no drivers, no worries.

Simple
Setup is simple and straightforward; the Expansion external hard drive installs easily by plugging in two cords. You can start saving your digital files to this hard drive within seconds of removing it from the box. Plus, it is automatically recognized by the Windows operating system, so there is no software to install and nothing to configure. Saving files is easy - simply drag-and-drop.
Speedy
Take advantage of the fast data transfer speeds with the USB 3.0 interface by connecting to a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 for additional system compatibility.

    THE QUICK TAKE: The Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is a good option as a backup drive, or as an expansion drive that isn't used intensively. It may also serve well as a working drive that's used more intensively but for temporary or replaceable files - such as a scratch drive or a media server.

    This drive is large enough and priced low enough that you can backup multiple computers for not a lot of money.

    However, if you're looking for an expansion drive - a second drive to augment a laptop or desktop - that you will use intensively, consider options with cooling and perhaps backup, especially if you will use the drive for your only copy of files.

    A DESKTOP DRIVE: This is a desktop drive, not a truly portable drive. You could use it to backup multiple computers around a home or office, but you're not going to enjoy carrying the drive and the power supply.

    A FAST CONNECTION: USB 3.0 really is fun to use, if you have the right port on your computer to use it. No more sitting around watching file transfers - the speeds are similar to those of a built in drive.

    KEEP A BACKUP: One of the keys to happiness in modern life is to keep at least two copies of every computer file you need. If you have anything you would rather not have vanish tomorrow, get a hard drive - any hard drive - and make a copy. Right now. Err on the side of caution.

    ALL HARD DRIVES FAIL - SO REPLACE THEM BEFORE THEY DO: Hard drives are complex mechanical devices. They will absolutely, inevitably fail. So manage them accordingly.

    I replace all my drives after about three to four years (if they survive that long). It's much easier to replace a drive before it fails - it's very easy to copy a readable drive. It's much harder to recreate a drive, especially a boot drive, after it fails - you need to reinstall all the software and settings, and maybe reconstruct the folder structure.

    And hard drives are cheap enough to make it not worth the risk to keep drives around longer than that. I can usually get a bigger, faster drive for much less money than the original drive.

    Once you start to accept the reality that hard drives will fail, and manage your drives and data appropriately, you can drastically reduce the disruption that hard drive failures cause.

    BUY A GOOD MODEL OF DRIVE, THEN KEEP A CURRENT BACKUP: As much as people like to claim that particular brands are better or worse, statistics don't really seem to back that up. Buy a good model from one of the top brands - Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi, Samsung - and then manage them as described above.

    That being said - some drives (or the firmware they are shipped with) have turned out to be real lemons. Most of the big manufacturers make good drive models, and they have made bad drive models. So much like your uncle, who never bought a new model car until they'd worked the bugs out of it - let someone else be at the bleeding edge of hard drives. Buy models that have been tested by other users.

    It's a little soon to tell for the drive installed in this particular model, and some of the early feedback is mixed.

    COOLING QUESTIONS: I can't really figure out why the cooling is so unconvincing on almost all external drives (like this one). A tight-fitting plastic case, with no effective ventilation? Really? While drive temperature isn't perhaps quite as big an issue as some would make it out to be - that level of cooling just doesn't seem adequate for a drive that's running more than a fraction of the time. If your needs fit that description - that is, if you need a back up drive, or an intermittently used expansion drive - then this Seagate external drive may be a good match

    FOR AN INTENSIVELY USED EXPANSION DRIVE, CONSIDER OTHER OPTIONS: If you need more space in an expansion drive, and plan to use the drive intensively, consider other options. Perhaps a NAS (network attached storage) or a drive enclosure with more effective cooling, and possibly something with multiple drives and built in backup.

    WATCH HOW YOUR DRIVES ARE SHIPPED: One of the key factors in whether a drive will last is how it's handled and shipped. External drives such as this one are usually packaged somewhat well, although online vendors still don't seem to really get the concept of filling the shipping box so the product inside doesn't bounce around on its way to you.

    Got this drive to back up all my photos from another drive that was almost full. It crashed several times during transfer even becoming unable to be recognized by the computer. I had to replug in different usb ports and continually restart the computer for it to recognize the drive. 2 days to transfer data that should have taken a day or less. Should have just stopped at first sigh of trouble.

      Device is compact and adequately fast. Using for USB 2.0, not for 3.0. It could run faster but gives me 70% of potential speed for that medium. Doesn't heat up. Well worth it for the price.

        Comments about Seagate 4TB Expansion External Desktop USB 3.0 Hard Drive:

        This is the cheapest (at this moment) that you can buy a 4tb drive. Add to that an external case and usb 3.0? Very cool, indeed.
        I'm getting about 150mb read and writes with this as a usb 3.0 drive.

        Leave it as is, or, if don't mind voiding warranties, pull the drive, stick it in a system via sata and put another drive in the case.

                        Comments about Seagate 4TB Expansion External Desktop USB 3.0 Hard Drive:

                        THE QUICK TAKE: The Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is a good option as a backup drive, or as an expansion drive that isn't used intensively. It may also serve well as a working drive that's used more intensively but for temporary or replaceable files - such as a scratch drive or a media server.

                        This drive is large enough and priced low enough that you can backup multiple computers for not a lot of money.

                        However, if you're looking for an expansion drive - a second drive to augment a laptop or desktop - that you will use intensively, consider options with cooling and perhaps backup, especially if you will use the drive for your only copy of files.

                        A DESKTOP DRIVE: This is a desktop drive, not a truly portable drive. You could use it to backup multiple computers around a home or office, but you're not going to enjoy carrying the drive and the power supply.

                        A FAST CONNECTION: USB 3.0 really is fun to use, if you have the right port on your computer to use it. No more sitting around watching file transfers - the speeds are similar to those of a built in drive.

                        KEEP A BACKUP: One of the keys to happiness in modern life is to keep at least two copies of every computer file you need. If you have anything you would rather not have vanish tomorrow, get a hard drive - any hard drive - and make a copy. Right now. Err on the side of caution.

                        ALL HARD DRIVES FAIL - SO REPLACE THEM BEFORE THEY DO: Hard drives are complex mechanical devices. They will absolutely, inevitably fail. So manage them accordingly.

                        I replace all my drives after about three to four years (if they survive that long). It's much easier to replace a drive before it fails - it's very easy to copy a readable drive. It's much harder to recreate a drive, especially a boot drive, after it fails - you need to reinstall all the software and settings, and maybe reconstruct the folder structure.

                        And hard drives are cheap enough to make it not worth the risk to keep drives around longer than that. I can usually get a bigger, faster drive for much less money than the original drive.

                        Once you start to accept the reality that hard drives will fail, and manage your drives and data appropriately, you can drastically reduce the disruption that hard drive failures cause.

                        BUY A GOOD MODEL OF DRIVE, THEN KEEP A CURRENT BACKUP: As much as people like to claim that particular brands are better or worse, statistics don't really seem to back that up. Buy a good model from one of the top brands - Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi, Samsung - and then manage them as described above.

                        That being said - some drives (or the firmware they are shipped with) have turned out to be real lemons. Most of the big manufacturers make good drive models, and they have made bad drive models. So much like your uncle, who never bought a new model car until they'd worked the bugs out of it - let someone else be at the bleeding edge of hard drives. Buy models that have been tested by other users.

                        It's a little soon to tell for the drive installed in this particular model, and some of the early feedback is mixed.

                        COOLING QUESTIONS: I can't really figure out why the cooling is so unconvincing on almost all external drives (like this one). A tight-fitting plastic case, with no effective ventilation? Really? While drive temperature isn't perhaps quite as big an issue as some would make it out to be - that level of cooling just doesn't seem adequate for a drive that's running more than a fraction of the time. If your needs fit that description - that is, if you need a back up drive, or an intermittently used expansion drive - then this Seagate external drive may be a good match

                        FOR AN INTENSIVELY USED EXPANSION DRIVE, CONSIDER OTHER OPTIONS: If you need more space in an expansion drive, and plan to use the drive intensively, consider other options. Perhaps a NAS (network attached storage) or a drive enclosure with more effective cooling, and possibly something with multiple drives and built in backup.

                        WATCH HOW YOUR DRIVES ARE SHIPPED: One of the key factors in whether a drive will last is how it's handled and shipped. External drives such as this one are usually packaged somewhat well, although online vendors still don't seem to really get the concept of filling the shipping box so the product inside doesn't bounce around on its way to you.

                          Been running it pretty hard for the last week since I got it. Been moving files around to reformat all my drives and it's been able to handle constant load putting files on and taking files off without too much heat. Haven't seen much in the way of errors. Smart is reporting a lot but it hasn't seemed to affect the integrity of the transfers.

                          The Toshiba 4TB drive is a beast. Both in terms of its capacity (3.8TB NOT 4TB, you'll notice) and its weight.

                          The drive is encased in solid metal, is quite heavy and requires both USB and power, unlike most of the smaller capacity (1TB) drives. If you are not planning on moving the drive too often, this aspect is probably of little consequence to you. With that being said, the drive itself is quite reliable, incredibly quick, and will most likely take you a very long time to fill to capacity.

                            Good price for 4 TB of space. Great for extra backup which is what I'm using it for. My RAID has a drive going bad in it so I needed to transfer a lot of data
                            before I can repair my RAID drive.

                              Used for system and home network back-up. The USB 3 connectivity allows me to complete 2+ TB of data back-up in a few hours, not a full day as with the USB 2. It would have been nice if it had back-up software, but it is sold as an expansion unit not back-up soultion.

                                I bought this to keep backups between the PCs in my home, and it works perfectly for that. When connected to a USB 3.0 port it's as fast as an internal drive. It would be nice if it could draw power over USB so as to eliminate the need for AC, but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

                                  I bought this drive to store RAW image photos andit works great for that. I contacted Seagate via email and got a responce back in only a few minutes so their support was Fantastic. My question about removeing/deleting the softwear that was installed on the drive was answered quickly. If you are just useing this drive to store files/photos and NOT useing it as a back-up drive for your complete computer you can gain extra storage by deleting all the installed files before you use the drive.
                                  The drive was easy to install, pretty much Plug and Play just connected the power and the USB3 cable and it was ready to go. The files transfered faster than I was expecting.
