    Great drive, but short warranty

    I've purchased a lot of different hard drives over the years and used to build my own external drives using internal drives and external enclosures. It used to be cheaper to build your own external drives. These days, external hard drives are very competitively priced, like the Seagate Expansion drive.PROS:- Quiet- Stays cool- Fast USB 3.0 performance- Backwards compatible with USB 2.0- Works with Mac OS X 10.4.8 and upCONS:- Measly 1 year warrantyDESIGN & BUILDThe Seagate Expansion portable hard drive's enclosure is made out of matte plastic that feels pretty well made, though I'd prefer aluminum for durability and better heat dissipation. Glossy plastic enclosures are hard to keep looking good, so kudos to Seagate for using the matte plastic instead. The back of the drive has the USB 3.0 port and there's an itty bitty blue power/activity light on top of the drive, towards the back.

    Perfect for media files for tv usage

    I also have the big brother version of this drive (3TB external hdd, AC powered), and both were very easy to use, plug to the USB port, and then start transferring files.This is the portable version, which means no addition AC power supply needed, everything is powered by USB. Portable also means smaller compared to the AC powered external HDDs. Maximum capacity for portable HDDs right now is 1TB compared to 3TB for AC powered external HDDs.Besides media files, this is also perfect for backups, documents, etc., and if you have a laptop equipped with SSD, you'll gonna need more space and this is perfect.So far so good, no problems at all. Used it on my old HP laptop with usb 2.0 port, works good (slower transfer speed of course). Used it on an alienware m14x with usb 3.0 port, works good again and now with fast transfer speed. Used it on my LG 3dtv to watch full hd movies saved on the drive and it works great!

    Seagate Expansion 1 TB HDD: Excellent portable backup solution for PC or Mac

    An external hard drive like this is about as good a backup drive and portable solution as you can find. It's compact, very portable, and for those still using computers with USB 2.0 ports, it's a forward-looking device for when a computer with USB 3.0 is in the plans. But first, here are the basics...Likes:+ Compact and sturdy; measures about 3½" wide x 4¾" long x ¾"high+ USB 3.0; can be used with USB 2.0 computers+ Works with Windows PCs (Vista or higher) and Macs (O SX 10.4.8 or higher)+ Easy plug-and-play setup on both Mac OS and Windows systems+ 1 TB (terabyte) capacity; about 930 Gb useable space formatted+ Runs quietly; offers excellent performance+ Reasonably priced; excellent... 5/5 John Williamson (NYC & Bucks County, PA) - See all my reviews, September 27, 2012

    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 says:, June 18, 2013
