    • Best answerIf "the Easystore series does not have built-in encryption/ password protection utilities. Additionally, the Easystore drives are not of as high a quality and come with a shorter warranty period". Then why is the Easystore more expensive than the Passport when the Passport has better features?

  • Q: Will this work with my xbox one ?  (10 Answers)

    By Chris 

    • Best answerYes, Xbox 1 supports third party external hard drives to be used to serve as either the main storage or backup storage. I know this, because I am currently using (2) 4TB seagates on both of my xbox 1's and they work perfectly fine. I have over 90 games, and its barely over 40% full. As long as the external drive has a USB connection, you will be able to connect it to the xbox to format the drive to work with the xbox.

    By CrispySquirrel 

    • Best answerAccording to the box and on line it's 5400 but it seems faster then that. It's a great portable memory and very small. Only down side is the power stays on all the time so I have to disconnect it when not in use.

  • Q: Will this work to download videos from my "Dish receiver/DVR"?  (4 Answers)

    By randy3740 

    • Best answerIt depends on a few things; For example, is your Dish Receiver compatible with the hard drive? Also I don't believe you can swap between different devices, once you use the drive for one device such as a DVR you no longer can play back the saved files on another device. This is something you will have to research yourself because every device and company is different. Hopefully this link can help shed some light on the subject:
