  • Easy to set up!
    Reviewed by TxMomof4 - August 23, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good external hard drive. The only downside is probably the noise, as it’s pretty loud.   I like that it comes with an external power source which worked great for my use case since I was connecting it to a RaspberryPi and the pi doesn’t have much USB voltage. Since the hard drive was powered I didn’t need to worry about that. Additionally, the hard drive comes with an adaptor for many different country electrical standards so this could be used all over the world.   I would recommend this to anyone trying to build a NAS (network attached storage) for their media library.  Because this is a 12TB I highly doubt I will run out of space and very happy about this.

  • Spacious and Easy to Set Up
    Reviewed by Melly90 - August 22, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The 12TB Seagate Expansion for PC is awesome! I have a gaming PC that’s been pretty slow lately, so I’ve been needing to free up space. The Seagate Expansion is an extremely spacious external hard drive that is super easy to set up. I set the expansion up as my default backup device, so now I don’t have to worry about losing my files. I’m also using it to remove and store files from my computer so that I have more space for games. I was surprised when I initially removed the drive from the box because it’s much smaller than I anticipated, which was nice. It also came with a variety of plugs that work with international outlets, so I could bring this drive with me whenever I travel abroad. Overall, I’m very pleased with this external drive.

  • good with some issues in Linux
    Verified BuyerReviewed by hammuh - September 28, 2021

    The Seagate Expansion can often be had for a nice price. I deducted a star because Seagate limits functionality in Linux with respect to reading temperature and sleep functions. (WD HDDs seem to not have this issue.) I notice that this HDD sometimes goes to sleep in Linux but I need to keep it awake at all times for Chia plots. The solution I found was to write a small file every 5 minutes or so with a crontab job.
