Setup is really quick and easy, plug it into the Xbox, power on, the Xbox will recognise the drive and you go through a quick setup process. In all you can get this setup in under a minute and once complete any new software can be installed to the drive automatically, you don't need to think about where to install things and you don't need an external power supply.
Looks good as well, not too much of an issue if using it with an Xbox, but if you want a good sized drive for carrying about this looks great.
My experience is as a owner/user of 5 1-2 TB hard drives.
Decided to give Sea gate hard drives a try after an extremely unpleasant experience with their product from 6 years ago (1 TB hard drive), and I can't help but to shoot myself in the foot for not sticking with WD.
The sleek design of the drive is about the only positive thing from my experience so far. The drive either periodically loses connection whilst idle, or more frequently disconnects if i'm say, playing a video from it. I know that most hard drive brands have a rather loose connection (easy to wiggle/wobble) between the wire and the drive itself, but the sensitivity and the ease at which the drive disconnects when it gets touched or moved is ridiculous. I find myself constantly plugging and unplugging my drive whilst trying to watch videos in bed. For clarification, I own 3 computers (all below 3 years of age) and this is happening on all of them. Whilst this may not be applicable or relevant to most people who might be using this for document or backup type storage, if you plan to use your portable hard drive as a portable device (anywhere except lying stationary on the table), i highly recommend an alternate brand.
Edit* Decided to run diagnostics on the drive using chkdsk and Seagate's software (seatools), true enough there are bad clusters on this "brand new" drive, the diagnostic tools were also unable to repair or even complete a test on itself. FYI. Chkdsk shows- Disk read error c0000483
Came just before the estimated delivery date which is a bonus.. And it is what it says it is :)
I used mine to extend my ps4's memory.. And fitted it today.. Works fine and fits fine too! :)
...when things go wrong, Seagate aren't a lot of help. After a couple of years of working without a hitch during a routine computer scan everything on the drive vanished (luckily I'd backed up most of the files on disc as well, being a belt and braces kind of user). Seagate's response to the problem? To direct me to a webpage that would diagnose if the data could be retrieved - not to actually retrieve the data, but to sell a data retrieval program. Of course, if that doesn't work I could always send it in to Seagate for them to repair at an unspecified sum.
So, good while it lasts - but not reliable enough.
