I can confirm that these have really slow write times. I had to pick one up yesterday to back up another drive that is failing and right now I am getting about 28mb/sec transfer. Over two days to transfer 8tb. Yikes

I've been using four of these for the past 3 or so years. Prior to that I only had 3-5TB Backup Plus Desktops. Before that, a 4TB Backup plus. Before that...2-1.5TB FreeAgent Xtremes. I've since upgraded those 1.5TBs to 2TBs because I found some compatible drives on sale. None of them have failed, albeit, the FAXs controller puts the drives to sleep or something if they're continuously on and not in use. Transfer speeds average about 80-100 Mbps writing over my network. I don't abuse them and stress test them - of course they'll fail. They get hot when writing 100's and 100's of Gigs. There's no fan in any of them, hello??... they're gonna get hot.

I'm picking up more at Staples.

$129.99 plus you can use the coupons if you recieved them today. $15 off $50, $30 off $100, $50 off $150.

I picked up one and used the $30 coupon. Came out to $110 incl tax.
My second order was two. I stacked the $15 & $50 and it came out to $213.50 incl tax.

Wish me luck, knock on my wooden HDD enclosure.
