  • from Whitby, ON


I don't know why people say it stops working because I had mine for 2 years now, and it works perfectly. I even dropped it a few times and it's working still amazingly. I put documents on it and animation maya files! never lost any of my files.

  • from Dryden, ON


Three months was how long this one lasted. Lost about 750GB of precious photos and videos. The ridiculous thing was that I bought this one to backup another (of another brand) that was showing signs of failing.

  • from Hawkesbury, ON

works fine for me

Bought this 1TB from Seagate and it works fine. It contains all my movies and pictures. Had it for 1 year now and it's good. I guess I have been lucky.

  • from Brampton, ON


This device is guaranteed for data corruption and loss of files sometime during its lifetime (possibly less than 2 years). I would never recommend buying any Seagate hard drive products. Their data recovery service is also really bad and painful to deal with. Good luck to all savers out there!

What a piece of garbage

I received a Seagate Slim 2 TB at Christmas as a gift. When I went to use it it did not work. After about 10 e-mails back and forth to Seagate with them trying to determine how to get it to work they determined that the product was defective straight from their manufacturing plant. What great quality control. I then had to ship the product to Seagate packed in a specific way with the knowledge that I was not going to get a new hard drive but a refurbished one. Meaning somebody else's new broken one that was repaired. I also had to pay the shipping cost to send it back even though it was defective from the factory. Now the refurbished hard drive that I received does not work and Seagate wants to charge me to speak to to a technician to resolve the issues. Therefore good luck to any of you that buy this product as it is trash only and so is the way that Seagate treats their customers.

Stops working after a few months

This is the second hard drive from Seagate that has just stopped working. Definitely switching to a different company now.

  • from Toronto, ON

Died after a few month of using it once bi-weekly

I liked the size of the product, andd was pretty easy to set up... but after only a few months of hardly ever using it (but with close to 1tb of info on it) the drive suddenly just stopped working.... a little bit of research online showed that it's quite common. I used to only have LaCie products and will go back to that right now...

  • from Québec, QC

The worst.

Tried it right out of the box. Did not work. Attempted to initialize it using the disk management option from Windows. Not even recognized in there half of the time and when present, only returns cyclic errors. Will return and never buy this brand again.

seagate 2T

good work well

  • from Ottawa, ON

Stopped workinn just after 4 months

I bought this HDD near Christmas and its been just 4 months and it has stopped working.

  • from Ottawa, ON

2TB Portable Drive

Excellent performance & size. Ideal for storage off-site in safe deposit box. When will you bring out a 2 TB flash drive?

  • from Edmonton, AB

Nice Backup drive

I like this compact hard drive. It is reasonably fast and doesn't take up too much space.

  • from Cobourg, ON

Easy to Use

I'm very happy with the Seagate Backup hard drive. It is very easy to use. Just plug it in to your computer, find the files you want to back up, right click and send to Seagate device. It takes some time to download so go have a coffee.

  • from Toronto, ON

Time Machine backup

Formated for Mac OS X used foe my Time machine Backup. Just works great !

  • from Flin Flon, MB


Bought the drive to put all my music on to it....transferred the files on my Mac to store on drive. Went well...was great to download the app to allow it to be used on the Mac without reformatting the best of 2 worlds...Great price too...

  • from Guelph, ON

Fast, sleek

Excellent for downloading onto, any problems would be with your computer..........mine however works fine! The drive is a great size for storing mega movies, music, information, pictures and to back up your computer! Great product! Thanks Best Buy

  • from Sudbury, ON

Poor Product!

After receiving this product for Christmas (last week), not even a week of use it stopped working with 500 + gb of data on it. And after doing some research I found out that this is a common problem. Disappoint in product to say the least. Now I have to seek assistance from a computer repair company to attempt to recover my irreplaceable photos, documents and media. Thanks SeaGate!

  • from North York

slow speed

Just bought on deal for 2TB hard drive. Price was awesome and model is very slick and attractive. However it takes forever to transfer files from windows to this 2.5 USB hard drive. For me it tool 5 hours to transfer 400 GB data....

  • from Toronto, ON

Amazing and slim drive

Got this on sale on Black Friday, it's amazingly small. I use it on both PC and Mac, and Seagate offers a free download of a plugin for Mac to allow it to read NTFS drives. Great job Seagate!

Great for upgrading PS4 HDD

Very easy to take apart and install inside PS4. Took less than 10 minutes.

  • from St. John's, NL

Great external drive

I bought this external drive for the sole purpose of upgrading my PS4 hard drive from a 1TB to 2TB. I was pleasantly surprised to find that if you're careful you can reuse the enclosure. This drive works great in the PS4 and now I have a use for the 1TB as an external as well. Highly recommend this as a cheap PS4 upgrade option as long as you're ok with voiding the warranty.

  • from Deux-montagnes, QC


works fine

  • from Brampton

Great PS4 Upgrade

So I bought this hard drive for my PlayStation 4. Granted I did not use it as and external hard drive. I instead pryed it open (which was only a bit tricky because there was a light seal underneath) and I removed the 2.5" drive and put and replace my original ps4 hard drive with it. The ps4 allows 1.77tb accessible as a side note. This is the best price I have seen for a 2.5" 2tb hard drive I have seen so far and I really do recommend it if your upgrading your ps4 or you just need some external storage.

  • from Burnaby, BC

Ongoing power issues

The hard drive randomly disconnects and reconnects, including while transfers are ongoing. This occurs on multiple computers running Windows 7 and 10. I've set all the power settings as recommended but no luck. Included software is garbage.

  • from Amherstburg

Stopped working

This hard drive was modified to be usable for both mac and windows and worked fine for about a month. Then out of no where wouldn't plug up to my mac computer. Nothing was readable. Then tried again couple weeks later then could view them but put nothing else on it or take it off on my mac computer. This is the second seagate hard drive I purchased which has done this and only way to fix them is to get everything off of it and re-format it, But I've also done research and apparently if you use it on both mac and windows comps this is com'mon and can keep happening :(

  • from Rouyn-noranda, QC

Best portable hard drive

Can't go wrong with Seagate products.

Seagate External Harddrive

I have been wanting an external hard drive for years, due to my losing photo's music and other important. Saw this the Seagate on sale at 2TB yet, so had to get it. . Backup is fast, and i could not be happier.

  • from Gore, QC

User friendly and fast

Bought this on special. Love the portable size and how fast it works. The only plus would be an included casing...

  • from Victoria, BC

Good Deal When On Sale

Bought two of these. So far they seem to be running fine. My only complaint to date is that these require USB power and so will not run reliably when connected to a keyboard on an iMac. This is fine as many devices have the same limitation, but they show a message about low power. The problem I had with these drives is that no error was displayed about low power. When I started backing up files the copy would progress for several minutes and then fail with a strange message about drive errors. I thought I had a bad drive, but before requesting an RMA I plugged it into a different computer (directly) and the backups completed without errors. I then went back to the iMac and plugged it directly in and it has been running without problems since then.


Great for XBOX One

Purchased this external drive for my Xbox one 1TB as I was running out of space and it works great! Its performance and speed is excellent as it runs games smoothly. I also like the thin sleek black design that seagate put together on this hard drive. The xbox also makes it easy to install with a simple format. If your looking to upgrade your gaming system to a higher storage space then I would certainly recommend this hard drive.

  • from Milton, ON


Excellent hard drive with excellent speed plus capacity.

Online boxing day purchase

i bought this item online during the boxing day and was [price] cheaper than the regular asking price. i had no problem so far with it. it's plug and play, so no problem to make it work and price wise 2tb for [price] you can't ask for a better value. for better performance make sure to use a usb 3.0, it make a big difference.

  • from Brampton, ON

Gets the job done

I purchased this primarily because of the fantastic holiday sale price. I use this for storing and accessing video files, which are typically between 1gb & 4gb. I also have a 2tb WD Passport to do similar activities and I've noticed the WD performs slightly better. If the prices were the same or within [price] then I would choose he WD. In my case the best buy price was to good to pass up and I'm pleased with the purchase.

  • from Markham, ON

Cool stuff

Cool stuff bro~works with PC pretty well. Also opens in mac, which I can read and copy, I can't modify the files.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Compact and Fast

Liked it very much ... USB 3.0 pretty fast data transfer rate

  • from Edmonton, AB

  • from Charlottetown, PE

Seagate 2tb

This is my fifth external hard drive from Seagate. So far most of them working flawlessly. I've got HP,Toshiba And adata and western digital but they are not as reliable as Seagate

  • from Canada, QC

Good device

After a week or two, I still don't have the buyer's remorse! Using Windows 8 and Ubuntu 14.04, this drive works out of the box, no hassle, on both OS. It also works out of the box on my Asus AC68P router. It seems to offer normal USB 3.0 speed. I had to download Seagate Dashboard to set the spindown idle time though. Otherwise, the disk just never spindown.

  • from Chatham, ON


I had the 1 TB Seagate, which was almost filled.My hard drive crashed and I was afraid I lost all my photo.But the Seagate had them all backed up plus other information..The Seagate 2 TB was an easy replacement decision,the bonus was it was a Black Friday Sale price.

  • from London, ON

Love the Seagate backup plus

Throwing my Western Digital backup out. The Seagate is so much more user friendly.

  • from hamilton

amezing product

  • from Montréal, QC

Good buy

Good buy for price

  • from Toronto, ON

Great external hard drive!

I've had this hard drive for a week now, and not a single complaint. I'm using this with my desktop and wanted something big in storage size, though compact in size, and it honestly does the job (also operational its very quiet). Setup was beyond easy, just plug the usb into the desktop (using Windows 8) wait about 20 second for the hard drive to install its software (all done automatically) and that was it. Also love that its usb powered and don't have to go looking for another plug outlet to power this thing. Definitely a recommended buy for those looking for a new hard drive.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Good value

Bought this from Reza at Edmonton West Store. Overall great guy with cheerful attitude. Not a bad price to buy on Thanksgiving day

  • from Embrun, ON

Great for PS4

I bought this for my PS4 because for some reason this is cheaper than just buying the drive itself. Works great. Easy to remove. I put my PS3 hard drive in this and works like a charm.

  • from Saskatoon, SK

Not a Linux friendly drive

Low rating because this Seagate drive will not work from the box, plug and play with Natty Ubuntu Linux. Never had issues with other brand external hard drives or Seagate 2.5 drives in the past. I will use the Linux terminal to install (I hope), too small for a boat anchor and the package is open! Very disappointed, will do much more research on my next purchase. I may very well lose the mobility feature of this external drive, not plug and play!
