    I like this external hard drive.

    I bought this 5 terabyte portable Seagate external hard drive because it had the largest storage capacity in a portable external hard drive that I could find. That is the initial reason. I already made the decision that I do not want any more electronics that take up too much space. I want small electronics. My very first portable external hard drive was actually a 100 gigabyte aluminum Seagate and I am still using it to this day. It was one of the very first one's they made I think, and despite being well over 10 years old, it is still going strong. They make quality products. This external is supposed to be 5 terabytes but of course it is more like 4 terabytes and change. It has a very fast transfer speed and it takes up little space. It has a small footprint. When I buy externals I always format them and then to make sure they are not a lemon I put some initial information on them and then I swap them out between computers and see how they perform. I have found that most of the time if an external is a lemon it happens right away. So I only put a small amount of information on one and then see how it works. And of course I keep the copy of the original data to make sure it is functioning fine. I bought the extended warranty for this and I recommend that for anyone that has floors that are tile as these electronics are delicate. This thing is fast and does not bog down even my cheap laptop computer when transferring data.

    I recently pre-ordered the Xbox One X and knew that a lot of the games I had on my previous hd (seagate 2TB), were going to by upgraded to 4K. Once patched by Microsoft, these games, which are running between 40-50 + GB would now be increased. I wanted a bigger hd that did not need to be plugged into an electrical source, but just the usb drive on the Xbox. The 5TB is very small and sleek, which can be easily hidden.

    I will have to update later. I have not had much of a chance to use it as of yet. But very happy with the quality, ease of use and size. Thankful for Best Buy's fast delivery as well!

    This drive is hard to keep in stock because of the storage space, so I jumped on this when it became available again. No issues, nothing bad to say about it. Sale price made it even better. I will buy more.

    I strongly recommend cleaning up your computer and store it on an external drive for so many reasons. One being that if you're unlucky like me and your computer 'fries' than you know the rest. That happened many years ago and I can't forgive myself for not being proactive. I travel a lot and love the convenience of being able to carry it in my purse. Aside of the fact that this is so easy to use I love it that I don't have to bring my laptop or (desktop?) with me. Let me just say that the price was also very reasonable and wasn't able to find it anywhere else, most stores carry the 3TB and under. Sorry Best Buy for some reason I couldn't post the pics (site crashed a few times)

    Great storage capacity. The operating software could use a little more explanation.
