Customer Reviews of Seagate Backup Plus STCA2000100 2TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
Limited in access!2/2/2014
I bought this seagate because of their reputation and knowing I've enjoyed their drives without trouble in the past... Now they say the drive will not work with their dashboard unless it is directly connected to a computer! Go figure - if you want to get a drive to use as a cloud - I suggest a Western Digital... I'm sorry I bought this now but segate did not put in their instructions or on any of the documentation this problem - I had to write for support and got the email back. The thing is: I even used the drive on the router as a cloud to install their "dashboard" and it still doesn't see the drive! I would not suggest this to anyone...
Stopped working after 10 days1/28/2014
I bought it for a niece outside US. A few days later, it started up followed by clicking sounds and was soon unrecognizable by the computer.
Awesome Back up Drive10/24/2013
This is an excellent back up. Better than the other 2 brands I have. Would recommend and buy again
Excellent external storage device10/24/2013
This Seagate product arrived quickly and was very easy to setup. It has a large enough capacity to allow complete backup of essential data from my 1 TB machine and has enough room to save an additional backup. No driver installation hang-ups on Windows 7 Pro. It remains cool to the touch and operates very efficiently. I would certainly repeat this purchase.
Great price, but lost my data9/4/2013
I have a 2GB and a 3GB unit from Seagate. Both of them have had issues... the loss of my 3GB was the most painful, as I was making room on one device when the error occurred. It worked perfectly, until it failed completely.
Awesome external drive8/27/2013
This drive works great. I withheld one star from overall satisfaction due to some problem getting the accompanying software to work. A call to tech support solved that problem quickly. The speed of usb 3.0 is amazing!
This seagate 2terabyte backup plus is simple and very easy to use. It may be a bit weighty to carry around but i've been able to save all my music, all my pictures, all my documents and even a whole lot of full length, high quality movies and I've still got many many more space. the item was shipped very quickly and the price was reasonable especially when compared to the competition. I would definitely recommend purchasing this product.
Works very well6/24/2013
Got this for my Win8 laptop, which has USB3.0, and it's much faster than the USB2.0 external drive. As I had hoped, the dock also works with my older "GoFlex" drive, and its dock works with this drive as well. It comes with a USB cable that is unlike any other USB cable I have seen before. The end that plugs into the dock has an unusual shape (to me). The end that plugs into the computer looks and works like a normal USB plug. It has no on/off switch. It has LED "bars" that are to indicate how full of data the drive is. I would gladly trade those for more useful indicators, such as one that shows when it's being accessed. Perhaps one to confirm whether it has established a USB 3.0 or 2.0 connection. It has all worked flawlessly. I will try to update the review if I should encounter any problems in the future.
