    Perfect storage

    This is an excellent storage option for all of your photos, documents, and songs that you just never want to lose. I save photos on the Cloud as well, but even that has been glitchy. So before I decommissioned my old computer I saved all of my priceless most magnificent pictures of the most beautiful grandson in the world to this portable hard drive, and I have a lot of pictures. Took only a few moments and all is well.

    Seagate external expansion/hardrive 500GB

    It works great, and is perfect for backing up docs and pictures from main computer (just in case). I don't need full back up, but it is capable. Don't need 1 or 2 T., and you can use drop and drag (which is so easy) so you don't back up things you don't need. It also works with windows 7 if needed. I always trust Seagate!

    Needed to do a factory reset, backed up all my files in one afternoon and now use it as external storage instead of loading everything back into the computer. It's fast enough that I can run games off of it.

    Great external drive for expanding storage space

    USB 3, so read and write speeds are quick. Works right out of the box so no installs or software required. Only con is that like most external drives, it has Seagate files/software loaded on to it taking up space, but a simple file delete takes care of that.

    I had been wanting a small compact external hard drive for a hot minute and this sure fitted the bill. I like it because its small, fast and plug and play so that it can be used on the go without having to install any drivers.

    Purchased because I ran out of storage on my x1. This was SUPER easy to setup. Plugged into USB port of x1 and the rest was history. I’ve loaded 3 full size games and have 65% storage left!

    I cloned my Mac Book before I did a clean install. Once the install was completed it was easier (for me) to move my files over without bringing the old settings to the new install.

    Almost great.... I knew 500GB would meet my needs but forgot that some in the "industry" define Mega and Giga as 1,000 not 1,024. Had to do some squeezing to get everything on.

    Thus product is very easy to use and the speed is great. The only thing I don't like is the square edges. It makes it hard to find a case it will fit in.

    It provides expanded storage for your important files. Its USB 3.0 interface is backward compatible with USB 2.0. The USB-powered design allows use without an external power supply.

    I needed a backup for my work computer, and this was juts the right amount of storage for a great price. Easy to use and small enough to store in a small space.

    I have three of these. One at work, two at home. Very easy to plug in and move file on and off and in between the units. Just plug in and go.

    I wanted a hard drive storage device besides a "back-up" drive. That way I can save certain items without backing up every thing. I works great.
