    Seagate STEB8000100 reviews

    8TB Expansion Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable drive that does the job. This is my 2nd purchase for this model drive. Haven't had any issues with them so far. I had to format these before using, which takes about 24 hours, which helps insures my writing on these later without errors. I'm using these on my server to store movies on my Plex, which I haven't had any lag or hesitations on movies when watching them. They do rattle a little at times when reading/writing but not enough to bother me. The drives do run a little on the warm side but during the cold days helps to keep my room warm. In the summer gotta make sure to keep the room air conditioned/cool to avoid overheating/failures. I would get another if these get full.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge storage, a snap to install I just installed a pair of these on my iMac to support various photo and video projects. It's too early to say much about reliability, but so far so good! They worked right out of the box, though I reformatted them for use on a Mac (a quick and easy operation). One thing I wondered about before purchase that I can clarify in case you're wondering too. B&H has a photo for the 8 TB model that shows it smooth and horizontal, whereas all the smaller sizes were vertical with a waffle texture. I can assure you that the 8 TB has the same vertical waffle appearance as its smaller siblings, so ignore the photo. (Maybe they will have changed it by the time you read this.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seagate STEB8000100 8TB Expansion Desktop Drive purchased 10x I currently own 5x 8TB Expansion drive already. This is a review for my purchase order of 10x 8TB Seagate Expansion drives. Not only am I satisfied with my product, purchase experience, and service but I'm glad B&H provides extreemly low pricing no one can beat! I'm a Customer for life! Thank you B&H team! This product arrived extremely quickly, in a well protected packaging. Overall Seagate is a great product, data read and write speed is fast, quality material such as the hard drive housing is dourable, needs a little more air circulation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is indeed a bit too loud. Before buying it, I saw many reviews saying it is very loud. But since I do not use it as a cloud storage, so I don't really care if it is a bit loud. Speed is good enough I believe.The speed between USB 3.0 storage transferring large files usually starts at 150m/s, then goes down and stabilize�at 100m/s.� And for windows system, you can just plug it in and start using it. The real storage size is 7.27 TB. Just in case. And for the noise part. I had another seagate�4TB Storage which "clicks" sometimes when it is been accessed. But for this one, it is like there is a little drum inside. And yes, it is pretty loud compare�to most portable storage. If you only need to use it occasionally, it is a bang for the buck.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seagate 8T Expansion Drive arrive, formatted for Mac. This 8T Expansion Drive arrived promptly from B&H. I formatted for Mac and set up as Time Machine. �Since my 2010 Macbook pro is only USB 2, the Time Machine back up of over 3 TB of various drives is taking many many days and nights of continuous running. �I hope this drive survives the first 2 Back ups. �After that it is light duty. Better to look at reviews after a year of use not 2 weeks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good... backup at a bargain price I own three of these drives, which house the 8TB Seagate Archive Drive. These are not speed demons, but they are not intended to be. I am currently using two for alternating Time Machine backups under macOS (Sierra) and a third for long-term offsite storage. Although hard drives are always a crapshoot, I've had no problems with Seagate external drives as backups since I started using them when they maxed out at 2TB. Odd are good you'll get a good one of these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as intended It's a big drive, a tad on the slow side, and a little on the loud side but I can't complain. It does what I want it to and that is hold a lot of information and take up as little amount of space as it can.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seagate 8TB Hard Drive 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.
