Seagate Expansion 2TB External Hard Drive Review

Running out of storage is a pain. But adding more doesn’t have to be. PC Centric looks at the Seagate Expansion external drive, testing its performance and ease of use. Should you buy it?

Hi just wanted to ask you an question. I’ve got an sound blaster pro sound card. But I’m looking to by a 7.1 USB headset. Would you keep the sound card or would I get better sound using a USB headset.

Will this external hard drive work with Xbox One

MrWorldViewer says:

I plug in the unit and there appears to be a drive problem? The autorun file is only 1 k. Must I register this product first? I purchased it online and I wonder if by registering I am committed to owning it even if it’s incompatible with my machine. What do you think PC Centric.

Partha Roy says:

Just wanted to say that the space is measured in tebibytes inside windows and not in terabytes. 2 terabytes equals 1.81899 tebibytes and that is why it shows 1.81 TB (tebibytes)

King_Danktholomew says:

Rather than filming the screen with a camera, can you not use something such as Fraps? It would just increase overall video quality, which is something you usually manage pretty well.

PC Centric, please help me! I am a complete thicko when it comes to IT stuff. I bought this as I want safe and secure storage for my photos and videos etc. I have registered the seagate but what do I do now to back up my photos. I have clicked on autorun and a notepad screen appears with File, Edit, Format, View, Help across the top. How do I start the back up process? Many thanks

Nice vid pal, i am looking for a hdd for my games as right now i am running watchdogs and bf4 off my ssd which has left me with not alot of space left on my ssd, but i think i would be better with a internal hdd, would a 5400rpm be good enough for games as i have a 1TB 5400rpm lying around any way if not what one do you recommend? i see from the video you are using a 1TB internal hdd for your games which one are you using?

@Daniel Mc Gilvray Yes, just got one and hooked it up, works like a charm.

WarWolf says:

Heel Guy says:

@PC Centric . Can you use these as you would use a Flash Drive? 

Chuck Lee says:

Should i be listening to the negative reviews on the internet in regarding to the lifespan of this drive? Should I trust this drive with the task of back uping my important files? Cheers.

Gvaudan says:

6+minutes and we don’t know how long is the usb cable.

BAZARA89 says:

Just bought this for my Xbox one and it works perfectly, just plug it in and the xbox does the rest, playing games installed directly to this drive works no problem.

Chm 999 says:

Can I use it to my laptop? Or I can only use it to my desktop? Now there is 2.5″ seagate expansion 2tb portable hard drive, 3.5″ or 2.5″, which is better?
