I bought this product and it failed within a few months and I only used it about three times. I contacted the company and they told me that I can send the damaged hard drive in since it was under warranty however, in return they would send me a hard drive that was previously owned and repaired. Would not recommend to anyone. On top of this I have to pay a lot to get my data back. Not happy at all

Amaizing product (perfect for your Xbox One)

I bought this hard drive for my Xbox One S and it works perfect, I didn't have any kind of problems with that, also I tried it with my computer without any problems, the price is good enough and the color is also pretty cool.

  • from Pierrefonds, QC

Cute and works well

What more can I say. This is exactly what I needed for my vast collection of photos. Really easy to set up for my Mac, AND it's cute!

  • from Toronto, ON

Working great!

Nice colour! It working well so far. Fast shipping. I love it.

  • from Noranda, QC

Bonne petite machine!!!

Facile d'utilisation, bon prix et très petit, alors pratique pour le transporter.

Seagate 2T died too quick !

I bought this Seagate 2T on May 8 afternoon. I started copying all my data from my laptop to it from around 8:00 pm. Next morning to check, I no longer can see this drive in my "Computer", even I restarted my laptop. Took back to Best Buy, they insisted can only give me another "refurbished" Seagate. After seeing the store manager, eventually got store credit instead. Seagate will be deleted from my shopping list forever.

  • from Markham, ON

Dead in less than 15 hours

I received this nice looking Seagate drive yesterday. I started copying (not backup) my some 500GB files/photos etc from my laptop to it from around 4:00 pm yesterday. At 10:00 pm last night, it only transferred 16%, so I left it does the job over night. This morning, Segate drive won't shows up in my computer any more. I tried to reboot my laptop, but won't help. That is the end of this Seagate drive.

  • from Scarborough, ON

No Stars for Mac use

Actually, the drive failed so no stars for Mac or PC. It's not even a week old. Managed to get my data on there, everything seemed fine, but now it will not mount. Making whirring heartbeat sound. So now I can't get my data off it to return it. HUGE pain and waste of time and money.

  • from markham

I like it 🌹

I like it!

  • from ST THOMAS

Worked good on first use

Seems to be a good buy. I plugged it in and ran the auto backup option. It did what I expected plus it backed up a lot of windows system files. I don't know and didn't find any info, that when I connect the next time will only changes on my computer be stored on this drive. I hope so. So far I'm happy with it.

  • from Montreal,Qc


Fast, I like it!

  • from Montréal, QC

Lets see how long it lasts

My fist drive i received was DOA and thankfully bestbuy accepted to exchange it for another unit (no refund possible). I hope that it's only the short straw and this one will last long

  • from Toronto, ON

Works and good value

This is a replacement of a lost USB3 HDD of the same size. I checked the speed, which is respectable 120 MB/s for sequential read/write (lower than advertised up to 220 Mb/s) and goes down to ~ 1 MB/s for random small files as expected. The warranty is good (I do not have it long enough to comment on longevity) and the 2 years of cloud storage is a nice bonus that I do not need but I am happy to play with. The only shortcoming is a short and flimsy looking USB cable, which is inconvenient for layouts of my workspaces. The cable is too short for use with desktop computers and barely acceptable for use with the laptop. This is why I take off 1 star.

Seagate 2T Drive

Really love this dive very compact and holds lots of games for my X-Box, also got it in a couple of days which was great with no shipping as I live in the country and don't make it to the city often. Great product very happy with it!! For some reason I can't rate the stars but I give it 5 stars

  • from West Kelowna, BC

Excellent Hard Drive USB 3 Quick

Arrived quickly, product is great. Very slim fits in shirt pocket. Very quick transfer of data with the USB 3 connection. Uses a strange USB connection on the hard drive side but the hard drive comes with the USB wire - not sure how this would be to replace if lost. I bought 2 and they both work as described.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Great Product

Easy to install , easy to transfer files, Great value

  • from Oshawa, ON


Great product! It was easy to setup and just as easy to transfer everything onto it! Nice and slim which makes it easy to take on the go!

  • from Stoney Creek, ON

Great little drive

Very small in size, compared to my other drives, but big in performance. First one was defective, but I returned it and got a replacement. New one works great.

  • from Edmonton, Canada

Fits the bill, in fact many bills

Nice size. Powering via USB makes it extremely convenient - one less set of wires.

  • from Lévis, QC

Great, small hard drive

Really small and cool looking hard drive. I plugged it with my Router to make a media server. Works like a charm!

  • from Victoria, BC

an easy recommendation

I have three of this model and my son has two. We have had no issues at all. They are compact, quiet and competitively priced.

  • from Montréal, QC

Almost perfect

Compact and fast.

  • from Medicine Hat, AB

Perfect for XBox One.

Just plugged it in and the XBox prompted to format the drive. Up and running in no time.

  • from Scarborough, ON

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB

I bought this one for my daughter for Christmas. She loved it so I bought one for me, too! Love the compact size for portability and it is so fast. I bought it to work with digital embroidery files. Great product. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to keep a lot of data in one place, safe and secure.

Amazing and economical for PS4

I bought this external drive to expand my PS4 internal memory, the process of changing the hard drive is very simple, you can find many tutorials online. The price was unbeatable, and the value even better, I have enough space for all of my games and DLCs now. I believe this is the most inexpensive way of expanding your PS4s memory. I got this on sale for an excellent price, and so far it has been a great buy.

  • from Krestova

Seagate YaY

Great performance without that cumbersome power cord. Read times are a little slow after a TB is put on, great product for the SALE price.

  • from Ottawa, ON

2 TB in a pocket

It simply works as it should by all means.

  • from Regina, SK


I bought this on the Boxing day sale, and so far, it is excellent. - no problems at all. I have one concern, based on previous experience with a Toshiba portable backup. Both it and this Seagate use a wider connector than usual. (Sorry, I don't know the exact name of it.) That connector into the Toshiba has started to cause problems - losing contact unexpectedly, etc, even though I've tried to use tape to hold it in place. I hope the Seagate doesn't develop the same problem.

  • from London, ON

Good value backup drive

Ordered online and shipped directly to home within a few days. Arrived quite quick. Unit is small, compact and easy to use. Plugged USB into laptop and transferred files very fast (mostly music and pictures). Small size makes it easy to keep the back up in a fire-safe safe. Will need to take many more pictures to ever fill up this 2 TB drive!!

  • from Georgetown, ON

Got this for Christmas and works GREAT, compact, fast easy to use... It works so well, my wife wants one now!

  • from Burnaby, BC

  • from Toronto, ON

Easy use

Easy use plus bonus received 200 go upload cloud one drive 2 year subscription from Microsoft git.

  • from Abbotsford, BC

Very portable

I bought this drive for my Macbook. I found that I had to re-fromat the drive to the Mac format before I could write to it from the Mac but that only took a minute. It also still works with my windows laptop which is very convenient. This combined with the slim, small design makes me very pleased with my purchase. I also purchased a similar seagate drive over 2 years ago which is still working fine so I hope this one will last too but only time will tell that me one...

  • from Trenton, ON

It's just amazing

It works great and it even let me use internal HDD too other than some companies. I will keep purchase seagate for external HDD from now.

  • from Terrace

  • from Banff, AB

Great for PS4!!

Bought this little beauty to upgrade my PS4 from 500GB to 2TB. Worked like a charm. Took all of 20 seconds to take it out of the case, without tools. Fit into the PS4 perfectly and booted up no problem. Took about 30 mins to install OS and was back online in no time. Another good thing was that the PS4 hard drive fit perfectly back in the portable drive case, reformatted and now is my media drive to use with the PS4. Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!!

  • from Toronto, ON


works for me I just want to have a backup of my picture, videos etc.. incase my computer hd fails.. not sure why it uses a special connection cable but if I ever loose it I would have a hard time finding the cable. Why not use a standard USB cable that is easily replaceable? Otherwise good.

  • from Thunder Bay, ON

Bad Purchase

Bought this in July 2014. Died September 2015. Warranty - 1 year. I have Seagate drives that are 8+ years old and are working fine. Either I got a bum one, or quality has dropped significantly.

  • from Vernon, BC

Seagate 2TB external

Using it as backup drive for business data - works 100%. Love it :-) Note: BEFORE hooking up any external hard drive to Windows OS it should be FORMATTED to avoid any potential problems ;-)

  • from grimshaw, ab

  • from Sarnia, ON

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Best PS4 hard drive replacement

Bought this (on sale during Boxing Week) to replace the stock 500 GB PS4 hard drive. It's the one everyone will recommend. (I will note that you need to open it, which voids the warranty). It's super easy to open (you can do it with a credit card or something similarly thin), and once it's open all you need to do is pull the hard drive out, remove the protective foil (that also holds the plug to the hard drive), and follow Sony-supplied instructions (online) to put it in your PS4. From there you can put the stock PS4 hard drive into the cover and use that as a backup.

  • from Victoria, BC

Solid hard drive

As a person who works with video this has saved me. For a cheap temporary hard drive it is great.
