Very fast with usb 3.0 controller. moving 2.75TB of data from another usb 3.0 drive says it will take 6 hours.
NOTE: this drive has a built in dock. Seagate allows you to remove the usb3.0 connector on the dock and replace it with their firewire or thunderbolt dock instead so you can upgrade this drive to firewire or thunderbolt OR use the dock to attach another bare drive in a pinch. Thats a nice bonus.
Overall I am surprised this isn't getting more thumbs. Probably because searching for '4tb' does not bring up this thread. OP posted '4 tb' instead. Hehe.
How so? Are hard drives / externals not included within the 90 day return policy?
I don't see them specifically excluded from the blanket "complete satisfaction" policy. The 90 day stuff is tv's, laptops and various other electronics that are specifically mentioned. You could probably argue to just have them replace the HD a year from now- as long as you don't frequently abuse their policy, they are usually pretty good to deal with.
The following must be returned within 90 days of purchase for a refund: televisions, projectors, computers, cameras, camcorders, touch screen tablets, MP3 players and cellular phones.
