4 out of 5 eggsQuite a Jellybean

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: Bought a few of these for our users. Work great with true USB 3.0 ports -- I suspect most will plug into a laptop. Recognized quickly, formatted in NTFS. Spun right up. Comes with usb 3.0 cable. Speed is great, transferring between 80-100 MBps, roughly the same as plugging in a sata spinning drive directly

Cons: Might be sensitive to power, as didn't spin up well on one desktop, although that port may have been in use by other devices as well. If you choose to keep this thing plugged in long term, you might not appreciate the short cable. When traveling, you will not want to keep the cable plugged into the drive, as it might snap off when you put in a bag.

Other Thoughts: For me, the ideal use for this device is to back up all my laptops and leave this in my desk drawer.

3 out of 5 eggsMessed up once, Am trying again

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: Fast, no setup required, and portable. USB 2.0 Compatible as well as 3.0. Overall a very good little drive

Cons: Mine died with barely any use after a month and a half (was unable to copy to the drive, tried to the reformat when everything stopped working completely). I have tried everything, but the drive will not work with the USB interface. I disassembled and tried with multiple SATA to USB type connectors and only attained limited intermittent functionality with them. However the drive itself works flawlessly as a normal SATA drive so I don't know what the issue could be.

Other Thoughts: I only realized the issue after my RMA period had run out, and I had no time for trying to get it fixed or replaced under warranty from the manufacture. I have purchased another and am waiting for delivery and will update my review once it arrives.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with PS4

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: Nice case, easy to pull apart, a lot of space for the price.

Cons: The USB cable is really short. No big deal.

Other Thoughts: I removed it from the case and upgraded my PS4 HDD with it, no problems so far. My 500GB HDD fit nicely on the case so I can still use it as external hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Fast, Fast!!!!!!!!!

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: Its cool to the touch, very lightweight, and most of all, very fast data transfers.

Cons: USB 3 cable is very short :(

Other Thoughts: Good things come in small packages, and this little Seagate external drive is no exception. I'm very happy with it overall. Now if only a longer USB cable was available for it..........

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great Mac/PC

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: I was able to quickly reformat to FAT using a downloaded Seagate utility. I wanted to be able to transfer files between Mac and PC. Works great. Drive is small and apparently silent.

Cons: none that I have found

5 out of 5 eggsExpansion drive for my Xbox one

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: First I got to say its my first portable external hard drive that I bought so when I received my Hard drive I was relly happy to see that it really small compared to normal external drive(the one that you need a power cord). And this drive work perfect with my xbox one, it took less that 15min to transfer a 40gb for my internal hard drive to this one!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Maybe I should place this in cons but for me it was not a problem, the usb 3 cable that is coming with this drive is really small(around 40cm) so if you plan on buying this drive for a pc I think you will need to buy a longer cable.

5 out of 5 eggsMy son loves it

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: Works perfectly for storage expansion on an Xbox One.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I got this for my son (early Christmas present from me) so he could add storage to his Xbox One (early Christmas present to himself). All he had to do was connect the external drive and turn on the power and formatting was done automatically. He's happy so I'm happy.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat so far.

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive STBX2000401 Black

Pros: Small Drive, very quite, USB powered, can be used with an Xbox One, can be reformatted without any proprietary software tools.

Cons: Not a huge con, but the HDD activity light is a blue light that sits on top of the drive. If you want to stealth your storage's appearance while you use with a Xbox One, you will need to cover it as it will constantly blink when playing games. As for the PC crowd, just another light to signify activity to you.

Other Thoughts: Just in case you haven't figured it out yet, this drive does not require its own AC power adapter. It is USB powered, and yes, the Xbox One will supply the power to this device over the USB connection.
