I didn't want to believe it, but these Seagate drives do fail. A 2TB portable Expansion drive bought in Feb 2019 can't be read by any computer, just makes a repetitive whirring noise. 1 yr warranty means I'm OOL.

I feel you brother, I broke three 3.5 inch on desktop in a decade. Now I only use western digital. Seagate is very likely to fail in year 2 or year 3 .

Not to pile on, but forget Seagate. Had 4 Seagates fail and just 1 WD fail in 21 years.

Seagate, like all manufacturers, has some lines that are better/worse than others, and some runs that stand out in terms of reliability one way or another.

Their 5.25" drives and SCSI drives were great - when they moved to the retail PC market in the 90s they put out some good models and some less good ones.

If you knew anything about WD's history, you'd know they put out their share of lemons as well. Pretty much everyone has. I think HGST(formerly Hitachi) has the lowest incidence of bad designs and usually sits at or near the lowest failure rate for drives. I don't believe they offer as many non-enterprise options as WD or Seagate, however.

Meh. Last years black Friday I got a 2tb for $59.99 so these should be either more space or much cheaper imo.

Maxtor? Now that's a bit of an old name. Seagate owns them now though. And WD owns HGST.

Going to pile on. Bought my first portable external drive ever in 2009. Might have been. 2008. (ps 2008, I checked the files)


A Seagate 500 GB GoFlex for $130 out of a Best Buy. The OG model. When it was on sale. It came with the dock. And a pleather sleeve.


It's been through a lot. It's been in my Xbox 360. My Xbox One X. Dozens of laptops. It's been with me for years. More than a decade. I've been on road trips with it. Times when I didn't have a home.

2020. I moved all the way across the country. And it's still with me. In my bookbag right now. Running strong.

Over the past 20 years I've owed several Seagate drives. Not one of them has ever failed. I've also had WD, Hitachi, Maxtor.. so many. Only failures I've had were WD. I don't think WD is a bad brand. I think HDs fail.

Years ago Seagate was considered the best. They had a very large, bad batch with a high failure rate and ever since then it's always the same BS, parroting narrative that they are horrible. Only evidence is anecdotal.

Bottom line, all HDs have a risk of failure and all companies have had their share of bad batches.

My WD passport failed last year and I now bought this seagate. Looks like external HDDs will eventually fail regardless of brand. I wish cloud storage is cheaper for backups.
