Channel Master DVR+ with 3TB External Hard Drive
I record antenna TV programs. This is the fourth Seagate 3TB external hard drive that I have purchased. When coupled with my Channel Master DVR+ it allows me the record up to 400 hours of programming for playback at a later time. I can move the Seagate between my different CM DVRs for playback at our country house. I also have four of the Channel Master DVR+ antenna TV recording devices. This same item when purchased thru Channel Master is triple the price that I have been able to find on eBay. The Black Friday special or the following Monday are the times to buy the Channel Master DVR+ and the other two required components (the USB wifi stick and the HDMI cord) direct from Channel Master to get the most affordable pricing and free shipping.

Great "storage" device for the money. I highly recommend it.
Very nice drive. I have had 3 of these for a while now and not 1 has let me down yet. I use them attached to a USB 3.0 card installed on my cpu and they transfer large files fairly quick, considerably faster than from internal HDD to internal HDD. If left on for 2 or 3 days it does get a little warm, but nothing I would worry about. I will keep buying these until I can't find them anymore or until a better "storage" device is available for the price. For the price and speed, you can't beat this as a "storage" device. I never have used the backup and store software it comes with but I provided a link below for you to check out a little more about the drive.

Buy Seagate for reliability and low price. Buy 7200 RPM when you can.
I currently am running 30 TB 24/7 on my system. 80% of these drives are Seagate. I have been buying Seagate drives for 20+ years. I have had only one drive failure and that was the drive controller / interface PC board inside a 3 TB Seagate Extension drive (7200 RPM) case 1 month after the warrantee ran out. Seagate Technical Support has no parts department and could not get me a replacement PC board. Fortunately I found new Seagate cases with PC boards, power cords, and 3.0 patch cords on eBay. I still buy ONLY Seagate Expansion or External drives and bare drives for inside my computer cases, preferably 7200 rpm, because you can tell the speed difference on a USB 3.0 system.

Trouble-free backup option for the average guy
This external HDD works great as a regular back-up option. There is extra software included inside it but it doesn't run automatically and can be left untouched and do nothing to your system or data.
It has a ventilation grill on the back which should help it stay cool. It has a blue activity LED at the middle top of the casing (it's barely visible in the product pics but it's there) which tells when it's on, writing, etc. It takes slightly longer to wake up than my WD Elements HDD but it's something like a second; hardly an inconvenience. No power switch, so it turns on/off with your computer; you might want to unplug it if you won't be using it much.
I use this one in an old Win XP machine, 2.0 USB port, plugged to a surge protector.
All in all, I'm very satisfied since I required nothing more than regular backup.Read full review

An Expensive Lesson From Seagate
I don't know how you can design a device which is so fragile and claim it is supposed to live in an office environment.
A slight impact caused my 3 month old Seagate to malfunction and take all of the data I had painstakingly stored. But that alright, ... because Seagate was there waiting for me with their special data recovery service. Forget the cost of the hard drive which they replaced, a mire pittance.
By the time they got through shaking me down with their data recovery service I stared at the replacement hard drive blankly. I knew I had to find another brand of storage device. I wouldn't trust Seagate with .jpeg files of my mother in law.
