    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Programme (What’s this?)

    For my purposes, this drive is excellent: extremely simple to operate, huge memory capacity and relatively compact and unobtrusive. No doubt there will soon be reviews here which deal expertly with specifications and comparisons. I am just an ordinary computer user who cannot advise on all that, but I hope this review will be helpful to other non-techies who, like me, want reliable and easy-to-use extra memory.

    The drive is about the size of a 400-page small-format paperback book. It is quite heavy (about 1kg all told) but would be easy to transport if you needed to. It sits flat and needs to be plugged into the mains. The supplied connecting lead to your computer’s USB port is about 1 metre long, so you have some flexibility about where to put it. When switched on it is, to my ears anyway, silent (hurrah!) and has a discreet blue LED to indicate that it is working. In short, it is the compact, unobtrusive drive I was hoping for.

    In use it is exceptionally simple. I plugged it into my slightly elderly Windows XP laptop and, as promised, it was automatically recognised by Windows and was ready to use within a few seconds. If you like, you can turn it off at the mains at any time it’s not actively in use so it doesn’t have to run all the time, and it only takes a couple of seconds to wake up when switched on again. You add files by simply dragging-and-dropping and the transfer speed seems very quick to me (my initial backup of my entire “My Documents” folder, about 14GB, took well under half an hour). Files (like music or photos) run from the drive just as if they were on your internal hard drive and it is easy to copy or move files between the drive and an mp3 player or memory stick. It really is like having a huge internal hard drive.

    I am rather nervous about computer technology and have been dithering over whether to get an external drive so that I can convert more of my music collection to digital format. I am thrilled to have received this one. It is small and unobtrusive and does exactly what I want extremely simply. I can recommend it very warmly to the technologically timid.

    Large capacity and ridiculously easy to set up and use, 15 July 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Programme (What’s this?)

    The downsides to the Seagate Expansion 2TB hard drive are largely unimportant while it scores very highly in the critical areas.

    It’s not a produce that’s going to win any design awards – it’s a chunky brick-like unit. Other hard drives might look more attractive but if you view it for its practical benefits, this probably doesn’t matter much. It’s also fairly heavy – yes you could lug it around with you but it weighs about the same as a laptop and if you plan to carry it around, you might find you need to upgrade your arms! It’s got a chunk of lead in it and that solidity gives you some confidence in its robustness though. If you are looking for a hard drive to carry around a lot, there are lighter smaller versions around. But for most this is probably going to sit on a desk and either be used as a back up or a store for things like photos or music. For that, it’s fine.

    In terms of set up – it’s simplicity itself – just plug it in to the mains and connect via USB and you are ready to go. There’s no software to install and Windows recognized it instantly. It really is plug and play. Perfect.

    As for use, it’s simply a matter of drag and drop – much as you’d move files around in your own computer. Transfer speed is fast – you should allow a chunk of time if you are going to move a large amount of stuff when you set it up, but less than you’d probably expect.

    And the capacity is huge – probably as much as most people will need. If you are looking for additional space on your own computer (there was a notably increase in speed in my computer when I moved a chunk of photos and music to the drive) or just as additional security of having data backed up – this is a strong choice. It’s not beautiful, but it is practical.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Programme (What’s this?)

    With 2TB of memory at my disposal this simple-to-use external hard drive
    has taken a lot of pressure off my very elderly desktop computer. (It was
    creaking at the seams with a decade’s worth of holiday photos and more
    music than any sane man should reasonably own!) Connection and operation
    couldn’t be more simple and simple is a huge plus in my book. The Windows
    interface (XP here) via USB is a complete doddle; transfers are speedy and
    the design, in basic black, is sleek and unassuming (even though it will
    certainly collect the dust on its upper surface but as the redoubtable
    Quentin Crisp was won’t to say “after the first four years it doesn’t get
    any worse” !) There’s a lot of competition out there in the marketplace
    but all-in-all it’d be hard to find a better piece of kit. I’m dead impressed!

    Highly Recommended.
