Seagate Expansion drive, 18 inch USB 3.0 cable, Quick start guide

Very Reliable but sharp as a knife
I have three of these in my studio. And I expect them to be efficient and flawless.I haven't had a problem till now.I use this basically to mirror my desktop harddrive, as a backup. Since it's USB 3.0, the backup speeds are awesome.The only issue I had was with the design.It has really really sharp edges. I once packed this along with some of my clothes and electronics, etc in a suitcase.The edge is so damn sharp that it drilled a hole into my hard plastic shaving cream tube and my bluetooth speaker. Watch out.But it's probably designed that way to gapless when you stack multiple of them.
Seagate 2 TB Expansion Drive Video review with Benchamarks
I have been using this 2 TB Seagate Expansion drive now for just over a month, please see the video for the actual review and benchmarks, but overall I am very impressed with the USB 3.0 transfer speeds that I get with this drive, this drive is not a portable drive but kind of to be used with a desktop computer as it requires external power.It was not written on the box that it's mac compatible but I have been using it with a Mac Min running Mac OS X Mavericks and I got this for my video work and I use it with FCPX (Final Cut Pro X) video editing program and it works great the raw transfer rates are pretty good over USB 3.0 interface in-fact this drive is faster that the internal HDD that we get on the Mac Mini and I am very happy with its excellent performance overall I am very happy with this external drive for seagate.

Great product! The drive is fast enough to transfer ...
By Vinay Loharon
Great product! The drive is fast enough to transfer data at relatively high speed, depending on your laptop/machine. Its a bit bulky and heavy but then the ext. power source HDs are so. Seagate has provided all power plugs so that you dont have to worry if you travel to UK, US or Eastern Asia where one might otherwise have issues with socket compatibility. The cables have a fairly good length. Best product if you wish to connect it to your HDTV to watch high-resolution video!
Good and fast delivery
I get it for very good offer and the SG hard drive is very good
And the delivery was fast
Thanks to SD

Wrong product description, careful before you buy
By Ash Chopraon
The product description was wrong, it was not a mac compatible hard drive. It said clearly on the product page that it was. Overall the service from flipkart is lousy at best, my job it seems has become only to give them feedback after feedback for all the messups they do. I wont go again detailing the case with this hard drive, but before they delete this review, (just like previous one time, coz they only like good reviews), I'f rather have some people know here, before I share on Twitter, FB and Youtube.. thanks for nothing
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW-Seagate's Expansion Drive
By Vikram Kumar Guhaon
well firstly as far as Flipkart and the seller-"WS Retail" is concerned-their packaging & delivery is very good.I got it in 3 days and the packaging is so good and tough that it is quite an effort stripping away everything and getting to the box.
Secondly about the hard disk itself:-
Well the first thing is that this is not a new model from Seagate but its old Expansion model with a new external cover.Personally the finish of this cover is not very good and looks quite blunt and unstylish,the old cover comparatively had much more design,finishing and style and the only negative point was that it had a shiny glossy top which looked very good but attracted dust.
Apart from this,everything is the same.
Seagate is trust worthy.However the thing to remember is that this is the most basic model which should be used only as a warehouse or storage for large amounts of data,it provides 1.81 TB of usable space,satisfactory transfer speeds and longevity,nothing more nothing less.
But don't use it like a slave drive which is always connected with a lot of programmes interacting with it or you working from it.JUST FOR STORAGE.
Thats why these drives are also called Back-Up drives and come with Free versions of Back-Up software which by defination is to be used for taking a big back-up which is to be updated from time to time.
So if your looking for a work-horse then you should consider higher & more expensive models of Seagate.
One thing to remember is-that a computer or any associated device (especially hard disks) is not like a fan or bulb that you can just switch on & off as per your need and convinience BUT it needs both software & hardware maintaince like the human body.
Firstly register the product with Seagate and then do a NTFS Format before starting to load data.Always load data in small chunks (just because its a 1.81tb drive doesn't mean you can or should just use it all in one go and push the Drive too much when its still brand new).
Also always run utility programmes like de-fragmentation & Error-check.etc on your computer and hard disks in order to keep them fresh and healthy.
Flipkart's Prices are quite competitive and in the least its safe to say you won't feel cheated from a deal.
However i advise all customers to do the educated and smart act of utilising your rights as a customer and get independent best price quotes from a few dealers in different sections of your city before selecting the seller as far as price is concerned.(This can easily be done by getting their Phone No.s from services like 'Just Dial' & giving them a call)
As far as the price for this Hard disk is concerned,i found it to be atleast Rs300. cheaper then even the wholesale market dealers were offering.
One must also not forget to factor in the Additional Transportation Cost,Energy Cost (a meal you would want to take after doing the labor of travelling to & from the market) & Time Cost that Flipkart's 'Free' Delivery with CODoption saves.This means I saved Rs.300.+Rs.200.(min cost for time,energy & transport cost)=Rs.500.
HAPPY SHOPPING,FELLOW CUSTOMERS.
By Chandandeep singhon
it a nice HDD to have plus u have lots of space. So you can have all that downloaded stuff at one place. Works like charm but heavy can carry all time and its not portable coz u need to give it power supply. Good for laptop user at home. I personally recommend this product. Great Flipkart
Best 3.5" 2tb ext drive
By Aravind Non
Its surprisingly fast. An hdtune bench gives an avg of 160MBps for sequential and a latency of 14.2ms and a burst rate of 193MBps which is lot better sequential and burst performance than the WD blacks, the ES or the constallations.
Its giving a bench result lot better than any desktop class internal drives I have. 160MBps is astounding.
Its giving me a 65~70 MBps real world transfer rate for large sequential files.Maybe a USB 3.0 controller bottleneck. Anyway hope it wont conk off soon.
