The Seagate Expansion 2TB is an external usb Hard Disk Drive (HDD) with a 3.inch form factor, with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatibility. A true plug and play solution this comes with all leads required to get you started.
The HDD has dimensions of 39.79mm x 125.91mm x 207.08mm, so it is not the smallest external drive on the market, but is still easily portable, and is fairly light at 939 grams. The HDD seems to have no problems being thrown around inside a bag all day. The drive is almost silent most of the time, but can hum in large transfers.
The black unit is quite leek and looks great, however seems to collect dust a little too easily and may need a wipe from time to time.
In the box is everything you need to get started. The HDD, 1.2 metre USB 3.0 SS B cable, power cable with both 3-pin and 2-Pin adaptor, diagrams for instructions and details of the manufacturers warranty, covering the drive from manufacturing defects for 2 years.
There are so many uses for this product it would be hard to name them all! Everything from backing up treasured files to using in a media centre, this has got you covered, and as it is powered it will show in most TV's etc, something a pen drive etc may not.
The drive uses an SS B USB 3.0 lead, which provides good transfer speeds if you have a compatible port on your computer, if not it will work with USB 2.0, and I havent found a system it wouldn't connect to.
The HDD will need to be formatted to work with a mac, however this is a painless process and after that you can easily transfer between Windows and OS X without problems.
One problem i have found is that there is no power switch, so it is hard to tell if the unit is on if it malfunctions. For example it could just be a broken power lead, but you do not know this as the light will not come on until connecting and transferring with a device.
