Great space for the cost, ease of use.
Large files/large quantities of files can crawl to speeds under 2MB/s. Not advised for file transfer.
Drive performs very weakly at times crawling to a snail's pace during large files/large quantity transfers. Not advised for file transfers, only for storage.

Just over a year of owning 2 of these and one makes an awful noise. I can't do much about it because these have a 1 year warranty, which is ridiculous for the price. This indicates that they don't even believe in their own product, I've learned from this to avoid short term warrantied items if possible. If you buy one get the 4 year replacement plan, I wish I had.

-Good price/TB ratio -Fast reads -Has been working 24/7 for over 1.5 year now
-May slow down if writing a lot at once since this is an SMR drive
This has a regular Seagate Compute drive inside which is SMR with all advantages and drawbacks of the technology.

I thought it was defective. I had to go in to disk manager and assign a drive letter to this HDD before i could see it in Explorer. Was not plug and play. At least I knew how to make it work, hope its common knowledge for all the other buyers. I hate that it needs a power source but o well.
happy with it. hope this review helps others

Cheap, its' cheaper than any other 8TB hard drives on the market. I took it out from the enclosure and used as internal hard drive for backup purposes. It has standard sata 3 connector and can be connected very easily to any motherboard. Real capacity is about 7.27 TB, so I can throw away all my old hard drives and store them on a single one. Sequential read/write speed is about 120MB/s, average for HDDs.
Wake up is slow, they are in sleep mode when not used, it took about 2-3 seconds to spin up when I'm trying to open anything. But this is Okay for me since it's only for back up purpose.
Good product for the price, recommended and I will need another one very soon.
