대로, noun and/or adverb?


I see the word 대로 used in different ways to mean things like "as expected", "as promised", etc. My dictionary says it is either a noun or an adverb, but it usually makes an adverb phrase.

as expected (adverb phrase)
예상한 대로 (used as a noun because 예상한 is modifying it, right?)
예상대로 (adverb)

모든 일이 예상한 대로 진행되었다.
모든 일이 예상했던 대로 진행되었다.
모든 일이 예상대로 진행되었다.

Do they all mean the same thing?
Which is more natural?
