FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Seagate Expansion 2 TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100


This is another storage solution from Seagate.   At $119.00 for two 2Tb it is a pretty good bang for the buck.   Seagate says that the drive is automatically recognized by Windows.   That is true but it doesn’t mention that it is not immediate.   I didn’t time it but it was recognized and useable on XP the quickest, Windows 7 not much longer and Vista substantially longer.  Once it was recognized it was almost immediately useable.   Since I have no equipment with a USB 3.0 I have no idea how much faster the transfer rate might be.   It seemed adequate with USB 2.0.  

It does seem faster than the Hitachi, Verbatim and older Seagate USB hard drive that I have.   

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
