    Pocket-sized external HDD with pretty good USB 2.0 and 3.0 speeds, comes with one-year limited warranty

    I tested this Seagate Expansion Portable 2TB External HDD with a desktop that's a little bit over 2 years old and has both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports and the Windows 8.1 operating system (which automatically detected the HDD when I plugged it in).Using CrystalDiskMark 3.0.3 for HDD benchmarking, I obtained sequential read and write speeds of approximately 141 and 139 MB/s, respectively when the HDD is plugged to a USB 3.0 port, and 40 and 37 MB/s, respectively, when the HDD is plugged to a USB 2.0 port. I thought those numbers were pretty good.The drive is small enough to fit the pockets of my pants (dimensions: 4.5" L x 3.25" W x 0.3" D), and comes with a one-year limited warranty.

    Excellent Hard Drive - Great Price. Pull drives for use in Laptop/PS4.

    Hard to go wrong here. If you are using this as an external drive, this product has 2TB in very small space and is USB powered. The drive itself only takes 0.7-2.3W to operate! On Mac OSX 10.9.2 running the included Paragon NTFS driver, I was able to see write rates in 8-10 MB/sec with USB 2.0. On a Windows 7 Machine I averaged 18 MB/Sec; 14 MB/sec running the latest 8.1 update.I pulled the drives from two of these units (instructions below - photos to be added soon) for use in my laptop. This product is the only way I know of to obtain the 9.5mm tall, 2.5-in 2T Samsung Spinpoint M9T drive(s). Note: the 2TB version has 1 drive, the 4TB has 2 drives. After installing them in my laptop (has 3 internal HDD bays with SATA connections, 1st bay has OS, apps, etc. on 500GB SSD), I tested data txfr speeds. I moved 1.5 TB of data from one drive to another with average speeds of 194 MB/Sec in Windows 8.1.

    A nice product: when it fails it's like hell

    0 1/5 Erica - See all my reviews This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB Portable External Hard Drive with Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 (Black) STDR1000100 (Personal Computers) I was satisfied with this slim drive until it failed within the first 3 months of using it. And my patience has been tested since then. I've been trying to get another one under my warranty but it's been almost 2 weeks since the first time I tried to get hold of the seagate customer service and I still have not received a new one!!The wait on the phone is ridiculously long. The first time I called them, I was on hold for over an hour to talk to someone briefly. More than a week ago, the manager talked to me saying that a new one would finally be shipped to me. When I called them again after waiting for more than a week, I was told that it hasn't been shipped. And every time I talk to a customer rep, they blame on system update.I'm thinking about just not getting warranty and switching to another brand. I feel like even if I get a new seagate drive, it will fail again and I don't want to waste my time doing this again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 18, 2014

    Excellent very slim, light, fairly fast 500-GB hard drive; the Windows version works on Mac and the Mac version works on Windows

    இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary:ѾѾѾѾѾ Highly recommended with warm fuzzies!փ Positives:փ This hard drive is indeed very slim, with its 9.5mm thickness being comparable to an internal laptop hard drive.փ The read/write transfer speeds are pretty fast for a 5400-RPM hard drive (but performance will feel slower if you are accustomed to using 7200-RPM drives).փ By installing a Windows or Mac driver, you can use either the Windows or Mac version of this drive on both Windows and Mac computers, which is great for transferring files in between both platforms.փ This drive comes in 500-GB, 1-TB, 2-TB, and 4-TB capacities with different color options for the top metal panel.ჯ Negatives:ჯ While the Seagate Dashboard software that is pre-loaded on the hard drive includes very useful and flexible backup software, the other two parts of the software to share... 5/5 Seagate Support, June 18, 2013

    good enough for me, but screw all this proprietary software nonsense

    why don't hd manufacturers understand that we don't want your awful bloatware preinstalled on our shiny new hard drives. make it downloadable with an in-box voucher or something but STOP SHOVING IT DOWN OUR THROATS. it SUCKS and NOT EVERYBODY WANTS IT. so no 5 stars for you! if you don't want it, cancel all attempted install prompts, open up the drive when it pops up in the finder/windows explorer, and DELETE!with that bit of nastiness out of the way, this is a perfectly fine external drive. it works quietly for now, but that may change some with age. from my very unscientific gut sense, it's write speeds are comparable to my 1tb wd my passport. i will say the drive does not feel as solid as my passport. maybe it's because it's not packed quite as tightly as the passport (the passport is slightly smaller). a minor quibble to say the least. it won't be moving a whole lot as it's a backup to a backup so it doesn't have to be built like a tank.other than... 4/5 Alan Dingus (HOUSTON, TX, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
