Xbox one gaming space

Great product....finally got some space for my games on Xbox one! Easy setup too!

  • from Montréal, QC

So far so good!

I have yet to see if it will be reliable over time but if does it will be a good value for the price.

  • from Moncton

Stay away

Mine failed at 3 months. Research showed these babies(3tb) have a failure rate of around 32% . The 2tb seem fine so that would be a better option. I was going to give a 2 star for decent return service but since I had to pay the shipping, nope!

  • from Montague gold mines


Purchased for external storage for PS4. Works great.

  • from Port Colborne Ont,

Photo Backup

I need these for backing up a huge amount of digital photos taken with DSLR , I like the new setup , just plug & play , no need to use the auto backup feature or the cloud storage. fast & easy rename on the the drive as well with partition software. Love the Seagates . The sale price made it a no brainer .

  • from Lethbridge, AB

Good Price for 3 TB

Bought this a month ago. The reason it gets a three star is because you have to plug in the power (does not work without plugging in), which in some cases, is awkward...I have another drive (different brand) and it uses phantom power right off the USB port and is faster PLUS has a read/write light....ok for price just be aware of above.....

  • from Kensington

Perfect for Family Photo and Video Backup

So far, it's working like a charm. Eventually going to store it in a fire proof safe so that these files will always be safe. Great Backup Device!!! Small Footprint for storage.

Seagate Backup Plus 3TB 3.5" USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive

  • from Etobicoke, ON

Seagate Backup Plus 3TB

Works great, Plug and play, as backup. Price very good. I have about 8 Seagate Backup Plus 3TB 3.5" USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive and none has fail as yet.

  • from Kamloops, BC

Works great for a great price

Hard to complain when you get 3TB for a decent price. Needed an external for movies/games and this worked perfectly. PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an SSD, don't expect faster load/sim/entry times because you bought a 3TB HDD. A 3TB SSD will still cost 15x - 20x this. A+ Works as intended, loads fast enough for an HDD.

  • from Grande Prairie, AB

didn't work with my mac

Was excited to get this, but when installing kept saying error codes I tried to repair the disc and youtubed but was unable to fix it... will be returning this product. Says its compatible with mac on the box.. but kinda misleading online when searching for mac compatible product its not in the list, thought I did my research :| ... anyways thats my experience with it.

  • from Surrey, BC

Good deal.

Works great. Plug in & go.

  • from Sarnia, ON

Seagate is high failure rate with Xbox one

I wasn't not impressed , would not load fast enough to my Xbox one therefore useless for downloading games too why I bought in first place -_-
