- Good- July 23, 2016
I haven't been using the external hard drive for very long, so I cannot attest to it's durability etc. However, I did make a back up copy from the hard drive on my laptop and it went well. I prefer to do things manually instead of automatic back ups (as was my WD drive). Just drag and drop. Fast transfer speed. The only thing I don't like about the Seagate drive is that I can't plug and play directly into my blu ray player. I can with my external Toshiba hard drive which is convenient at times. Most of the time I copy onto flash drives, but if the file is too big I want to be able to plug and play, so that is a disappointing factor in the Seagate.

- Serious storage in a very small format- August 29, 2020
This external hard drive was just what I needed as a secondary backup for my desktop. Even though I knew it was going to be small, I was still surprised by just how small it was when it showed up. Very lightweight, too. There's not much to it. I definitely wouldn't put it through any high impact situations, but on my desk it's fine. The USB cord that comes with it could be longer, but I guess it's kept short for portability with laptaps. I own another Seagate external hard drive that I've confidently used for *many* years, so that's why I opted for this brand again. Hopefully this new drive will also be with me for the long haul.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Works As It Should- June 18, 2021
I've only had this Seagate Expansion 1 TB external hard drive for a short time, but I haven't had any problems with it so far. It worked straight out of the box as soon as I connected it to a USB port on my Windows 7 desktop computer. I chose this hard drive in particular because it was one of the most affordable in the 1 TB category and was compatible with Win 7, which was essential since I'm using it to back up an older machine. The data transfer rate isn't lightning fast, but it's comparable to the Western Digital hard drive that the Seagate is replacing, so I have no complaints. Good value for the money!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
