5 out of 5 eggsWorks with PS4

This review is from: Seagate 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 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 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 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 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 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.

5 out of 5 eggsSlim 2.5"2 TB for $80

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

Pros: bang for the buck
huge storage room
fits standard lapop drive trays and mostly some wireless hard drive enclosures

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: This is a dream come true! storage space is getting compact, larger and cheap, but data is larger and larger lol
Any way this went into a Seagate satellite wifi drive = went from 500 GB to 2TB.cost of upgrade = 40 bucks!, total cost= 100$, but many hours waisted in trying drives and disassembling enclosure, looking for drive specs online, checking prices etc, maybe a fair trade off...
