    8TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 External Hard Drive with USB Hub is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 61.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid backup option Seems like a good solid drive. Starts on boot-up so no on/off switch which is really redundant anyway. Comes formatted for Windows and Boot Camp and you can configure it to do Time Machine backup on installation or of course you can reformat it for Mac, but that removes the Boot Camp ability so you will not be able to start up in windows from the drive. Since I'm Mac only I reformatted it into two equal 4 gig partitions and use one for Time Machine and the other for data storage. The drive works seamlessly and quietly and so far I have had no trouble with it. Seagate is usually a reliable manufacturer so I do not expect anything to go wrong but 8 gigs is a lot of info to lose, so fingers crossed meantime. The USB hub up front is a nice addition but not sure if you get USB3 speeds out of it, but it's very convenient to have an extra input now that the drive is using one of the ports on my Mac

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay. I don't like its speed. Though it says USB 3.0, but when I transfer video files from another external hard drive (WD 8 TB). Speed first shows 130 MB/s then down to 100 MB/s finally after about 2 minutes it stays stable at 76 MB/s, which is only half of what they claim: 160 MB/s. Another minus, I don't know why they can not do it? The LED light when files are transferred. They should add that LED light. It does not cost anymore than few pennies, why can't they do it?. From my old WD 8 TB there is nothing to show that it is running to this new Seagate 8 TB. The logo does light up but merely shows that it is running. Hey Seagate, add a LED that will light up when data is running, OK?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute Junk Bought this to backup a NAS that has 6TB of data on it. Transfers (rsync) started out at 30MB/sec (not great) over USB, but by the time I got a couple of TB on this drive, transfer speeds had dropped to less than 1MB/sec. I seriously doubt it will even be possible to copy all 6TB from the server to this drive. Additionally, when totally idle, this drive continuously thrashes the head around for no apparent reason. Serves me right for buying Seagate. If you buy this drive, you have only yourself to blame.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 5400 RPM drives... slower than the 6TB of the same line I have the 6TB version of this and it was the fastest of my 4 external drives, so I bought 2 of the 8TB drive in the same line.... Nowhere on B&H, or Seagates websites is there any mention or RPMs... well, for some reason the make it up as they go along. The Backup plus hub 8TB drives are 5400 RPM... to slow for my video work :-( Why would the 6TB of the same drive be 7200RPM? Who knows, but I took these out of the external case to use as a RAID internally, so I guess I just got suckered out of $300+ :-(

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves a Dual Purpose - Will buy More I have a WD My Cloud Server (12TB) that has two USB expansion Ports on the back, I has used up both and was wondering how to easily increase the capacity and be able to continue doing so without having to configure more cloud servers. The 2 USB ports on the front of the Seagate drive mean that I can Daisy Chain Disks. So I can expand my storage cloud easily. I can buy a cheaper non Hub Drive for one of the Ports and another Seagate/Hub Drive for the other for practically limitless expansion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Quiet, and Big Outgrew my 5TB drive, and this is the replacement. The drive is silent except for the occasional light chunk of the drive heads moving. I get about 120 MB/s read/write speeds via the USB 3 cable.
    Date published: 2016-08-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8TB Hard Drive I was really excited to receive this large hard drive to back up my video files. The only down side I can say is the installation. It wanted to use the Seagate software that was on the drive. At first it didn't really work properly, but finally got it working with some experimentation. Now it works great.
    Date published: 2016-08-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast but noisy Drive is fast. However, you can hear the hard disk performing read and write operation. Other than that I am happy.
