Seagate Portable Expansion Drive 1TB USB 3.0 Review
The Seagate Expansion 1TB is the hard drive that has the USB 3.0 as its port. This compact device can easily be plugged and played as there is no software needed for it to install. It has the power management greatly integrated on its cores which ensure that every, and all, operation is efficient in saving energy.
Dragging and dropping has never been more accurate with the Seagate Expansion 1TB’s way of saving files. It only takes a few clicks to ensure that your files are properly organized. The setup is direct and just needs a USB cable for it to work accordingly. Unlike the 2TB, the 1TB does not have the glossy finish which makes fingerprints show up. On this one, the matte finish has been placed which prevents it from having fingerprints easily.
In comparison to the 2TB, the 1TB is quite a product with its ultra-portable design. It is much easier to bring along with business travels and things like that. If you need more space for your computer but is not ready yet to go boundless, the 1TB is a nice resort. This is great when backing up laptops and tablets as it provides extra storage capacity for anyone who is working with large and numerous files.
Not only it is really lightweight, but when it comes to formatting the device when needed, it is really fast and easy. Just be sure to take extra care for it as the slim and streamlined design it has may mean that it is not so durable. It may, in fact, be too fragile to be treated badly. This product is really easy to install and use.
The quality control is somewhat an issue due to the fact that there have been complaints that the device stopped working after a month or so even if others say that it can last for over a year. There is quite a nuisance about this product though. When you used it for the first time, you will notice how easy going it is. However, after a while, you may encounter the very annoying beeping sound when you plug it.
Sometimes it becomes hard to deal with it, because the drive can get disconnected at the middle of working at something. It’s like you are transferring a file and suddenly it becomes undetected. But other than that, this drive is a pro when it comes to its backing up ability. It is also small enough to fit right into your pocket without any difficulty. Thus, letting you bring it anywhere that you want. Unlucky, it only has a year of warranty, and the customer service is non-existent. Therefore, you may need to be absolutely sure before buying it. Another let down is the lack of the instruction manual on how to set it up. Good thing, getting it to work is not that hard.
Nevertheless, if you are the type who cannot help downloading a bunch of movies, music, e-books, and other downloads, the Seagate Expansion 1TB will give you enough space to cater to that addiction or guilty pleasure you have.
