    I'm sure it's good product, but not what I needed

    I ordered this online, and while in the reviews it stated this wasn't compatible with Mac, the actual web page description didn't say it wasn't. Found out when the package arrived and I opened it and saw it displayed on the item box. I'm sure it's a good item, but if you need something for Mac, get something else. This is only compatible with Windows. Best Buy's return/exchange process is easy and smooth, but would have preferred to have known about compatibility issues before I made the original purchase

    Great drive for Dish DVR

    I bought this drive to used as a DVR for my Dish network Wally receiver. It works great for that and is twice the size of what Dish would sell you for more money. I wasn't sure if this would work because it is not externally powered but I can positively say it does exactly what I want it to. Now I can fill it with endless hours of movies and shows without worrying about running out of space.

    Great HD for Xbox one

    I ran out of space on my internal HD for Xbox one. This one is plug and play and does not need an external AC source. It is quick and quiet. And so far it has always been recognized by the System. I had an external before this one, which would always put itself in sleep mode. I would have to unplug everything to get it to work. This one does not do that. It is top notch.

    Gets the job done

    I had bought several Seagate 2 TB Slim hard drives in the past and they are still working fine. I bought the expansion hard drive because it was a little bit less expensive. It worked perfectly straight from the box, just like the Slim hard drives. The case seems to be a little cheaper. I believe the warranty is also only one year (in the US) on the expansion drive. So far all the drives are working great for what I used them for- which is backup.

    Easy installation/compatibility to upgrade ps4 HD

    I purchased the 2TB HD to replace the standard 500GB in the ps4. The total time took about 10 mins to swap and a few minutes to reload the ps4 firmware from website. Not only do you get to upgrade your ps4 but you also get to repack the original 500GB HD from the ps4 into the casing of the 2TB HD. Its like getting 2 for 1 because you now have an external 500GB portable HD. I would highly recommend purchasing and the price was very reasonable.

    Did not work

    This item is apparently not compatible with Mac computers. Trying to reformat it as I have done many times in the past with drives did not work, the drive would not even mount on my desktop & crashed my system. I got terrible email support from Seagate. Trying to return the item to Best Buy didn't work either, fortunately they ultimately refunded my purchase price without having to return it, so applause for Best Buy. I don't know if this drive would work with a PC, but for Mac, was great frustration..

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I am very Happy with my new Seagate Expansion. These are small, light, and fast. Over the years, i have learned not to drop or unplug 'em wrong, they blow. they last, as long as you're careful. Seagate Drives are interchangeable across PC, Mac, an PlayStation- 3.0 connectivity for quick file transfer and have customized backup options with their Seagate Dashboard Software. USB Powered.

    Bought this for use with security cameras...

    I wound up returning the camera interface that I intended to use these drives with, and thus also returned the drives. I almost kept them because they were neat and performed well. And, for the price to get 2TB in ea. drive, I had my own little SAN. I didn't need it, but it was cool. Amazingly small, quiet, cool [temperature], and easy-to-use. Great for a backup drive scenario or to transfer massive files/systems.
