Easy to use memory drive,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seagate STBX500200 500GB Expansion USB 3.0 2.5 Inch Portable Hard Drive - Black (Personal Computers)
This was my first memory drive purchase so after lots of research and price checks i picked the Seagate 500GB up for 42 GBP.
All the research showed this was one of the better made drives; easy to set up and use - I was using a USB 2.0 port which wasn't exactly the quickest transfer but then again I was transferring about 4,000 recent photos as well as 150 movies, and about 20gb of music. It worked, it's easy to use and it still works several weeks after purchase (but why shouldn't it?). The drive comes with a warranty which is on-line available (non of these pesky slips to complete and send via Royal Mail).
A basic looking component, blue light comes on when connected - charges via USB Port.. during the on-line research I did note many people complained about the length of the cable.. not only with this drive but with most of the drives that are available nowadays... i much prefer the short (though not too short) cable for ease of carrying. The device sits beside any one of my laptops when in use - and is very very quite... so quiet there is no noise from it at all.
I recently visited a friend who wanted to view my recent photographs; I slipped the drive into my pocket and connected it into his TV USB.... photographs on a 42" TV!!!!! Wonderful; easy to use, why didn't I buy one before now..... and just to confirm, I would happily buy another Seagate memory drive. A highly recommended product.
