Product Description

The Seagate® Expansion™ External hard drive by Seagate offers an easy-to-use solution when you need to add data storage to your computer instantly.

Seagate Expansion desktop drive, add-on storage for your PC

The Seagate® Expansion desktop drive provides extra storage for your ever-growing collection of files. Instantly add space for more files, consolidate all of your files to a single location, or free up space on your computer’s internal drive to help improve performance.

Setup is straightforward; simply plug in the included power supply and USB cable, and you are ready to go. It is automatically recognized by the Windows® operating system, so there is no software to install and nothing to configure. Saving files is easy too—just drag-and-drop.

Take advantage of the fast data transfer speeds with the USB 3.0 interface by connecting to a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 for additional system compatibility.

The easy-to-use storage solution

The Expansion external hard drive can be installed easily by plugging in two cords. You can start saving your digital files to this hard drive within seconds of removing it from the box.

Adds storage capacity instantly

Digital photos, video and music files can tax your computer’s storage, causing performance to decline as its internal hard drive fills to capacity. The Expansion external hard drive helps remedy this situation by enabling you to free up storage space on your computer’s hard drive.

Trusted Seagate quality and support

Seagate has delivered proven, reliable storage solutions for more than 30 years.

With more than one billion hard drives shipped, Seagate continues to stand behind its quality by including a limited warranty with the Expansion external hard drive. Additionally, Seagate support is always available should you have questions or need assistance with using your Expansion external hard drive.

Size Name: 2TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For my purposes, this drive is excellent: extremely simple to operate, huge memory capacity and relatively compact and unobtrusive. No doubt there will soon be reviews here which deal expertly with specifications and comparisons. I am just an ordinary computer user who cannot advise on all that, but I hope this review will be helpful to other non-techies who, like me, want reliable and easy-to-use extra memory.

The drive is about the size of a 400-page small-format paperback book. It is quite heavy (about 1kg all told) but would be easy to transport if you needed to. It sits flat and needs to be plugged into the mains. The supplied connecting lead to your computer's USB port is about 1 metre long, so you have some flexibility about where to put it. When switched on it is, to my ears anyway, silent (hurrah!) and has a discreet blue LED to indicate that it is working. In short, it is the compact, unobtrusive drive I was hoping for.

In use it is exceptionally simple. I plugged it into my slightly elderly Windows XP laptop and, as promised, it was automatically recognised by Windows and was ready to use within a few seconds. If you like, you can turn it off at the mains at any time it's not actively in use so it doesn't have to run all the time, and it only takes a couple of seconds to wake up when switched on again. You add files by simply dragging-and-dropping and the transfer speed seems very quick to me (my initial backup of my entire "My Documents" folder, about 14GB, took well under half an hour). Files (like music or photos) run from the drive just as if they were on your internal hard drive and it is easy to copy or move files between the drive and an mp3 player or memory stick. It really is like having a huge internal hard drive.

Purchased this hard drive to use as a 'time machine' backup for my iMac; very good for the price. Worked straight out of the box. The Mac reformatted it, but that didn't cause any problems and easy enough to do if you follow the onscreen prompts. Generally runs quietly. Future-proof as it has USB 3.0. Overall very pleased.

In layman's terms: this drive is too big for Windows 7's standard back-up program (as of Feb 2014). So if you're buying it to make backups for a Windows 7 machine you might want to think again. [It works fine with Windows 8 though]

More technical info: this is a modern disk drive -- a "4K native" drive. This means it has 4096 bytes per sector (and 4096 bytes per physical sector). Unfortunately Windows 7 was not designed with such big sectors in mind, and the standard Windows 7 back-up program will fail if you try and create a system image. This issue cannot be fixed by reformatting, as far as I know (and I've tried) -- the problem is more fundamental than that (there are some super-fancy reformatting suggestions available via googling but these cause other problems (for example your 4TB drive magically becomes a 2TB drive in the process, so you've lost half your storage already)). One possible fix is to use seagate's own back-up program, "Seagate DiscWizard", which is what I'm reluctantly doing. Another fix is to wait until Microsoft issue a fix (they know how to work with such drives because Windows 8 back-up works fine with them), but they have known about this issue for years and nothing is forthcoming, which is very disappointing.

I purchased this product in July 2013, delivery was prompt and the drive worked really well for the best part of 4 months. I primarily used this product as a add storage drive for my DD-WRT router. Last week, I tried to access a file over my network and got no response. I checked the drive - dead no LED... powered the drive down/up still dead.. Being an electronics design engineer, I got my fluke volt meter out and measured the voltage from the AC to 12V DC adapter. This measured OK at 12Volts... so definitely, something within the hardware was dead and not the AC mains adapter...

Although the product was technically still under warranty, I could have just sent it back for a replacement. I guess because this drive held all my personal photos and files, I didn't want the drive to leave my house! I felt competent enough to go fault find the PCB board myself.

Found the fault in no time - There is a component on the SATA to USB board (ASM 1053) that converts the 12V DC to 5VDC.
(Techie term for this is a DCtoDC convertor or switcher). This IC or a component around it had failed as there was no 5Volts present on the board.

Dropped Seagate an email telling them that their board had failed. They replied to basically say I had voided my warranty as I attempted to repair it myself . OK fair enough I did... and I deserve to be punished! .but I also asked them whether they could just sell me a replacement board..they said no...

For a company that big, I would have thought their after sales would be a bit more helpful - Note - I even offered to PAY for a replacement board!! I am sure I am not the first customer to which this has happened.

Anyway to cut a long story short, I purchased a Inateck USB3.
