Seagate Expansion External Drive 3 TB
Advantages: Huge 3TB Storage Space, Low Price Tag, Minimal noise, Sleek & Stylish, high speed USB
Disadvantages: not having enough data to fill the hard drive
I've been thinking about updating my external hard drive, just so i have another back up drive but also to use as a storage drive on my home network. I wanted something that would have a large storage space, easily managed, reliable and most importantly not cost a fortune. This is where i found the 3TB Seagate Expansion Drive; for just £99.99. A real bargain for so much space so i thought something had to be bad about it.
The hard drive its self is a 3.5" SATA external hard drive however the drive its self is stored in a sleek black outer case with a high speed USB connection. This connection allows for a 480 Mbs average transfer speed.
For a 3TB storage space i was surprised at the lightness of the drive its self. Weighing in at only 1.24kg its rather quite light. I was also surprised at the size; it measured only 12.6cm x 20.8cm x 4cm. This makes it a perfect fit for use on desktops or near your laptop or computer. The enclosure its self is very stylish; carrying a sleek modern black design. This means it's a unisex drive and can be used in any environment and will still not clash.
The drive is easy to use, using a simple plug and play feature so you need simply connect the USB to your laptop or computer and the drive will install its self within a few seconds and will be ready for instant use. When in use its noise pollution is minimal you may hear a slight buzzing sound on the first few start ups of the drive but it soon fades to a nonexistent noise, which allows the user to carry on with their computing without having to drown out the awful noise of a fan spinning inside the drive.
The drive is compatible with all major operating systems including windows xp, Vista. 7 and Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later. So you should have no problems using this drive on your computer or laptop. And finally to top off this product it also comes with a free 2 year manufacturer warranty.
In my opinion this drive is amazing; i'd recommend it to anyone with any high storage needs and will probably end up buying another one of these as a spare back up drive again. I've been using it for the past 2 weeks and its not failed me or let me down and I've been doing huge file transfers onto and off the drive and the speeds still haven't changed. For the £99.99 price tag i highly recommend to anyone they purchase this drive.
Summary: An amazing hard drive highly recommended
