2 Star Review  productwiki.com - Apr 2, 2011

The Seagate Expansion External Drive is a basic portable hard drive for people who want to be able to easily transport data without a lot of setup or extra features to contend with. It plugs into a standard USB 2.0 port and works as soon as your PC or Mac automatically recognizes it. Files can be added or removed via your operating systems standard drag and drop interface, and no additional setup is required. Built-in power management keeps the amount of power drawn to a minimum. This drive comes with a two year limited warranty.

Strengths: Portability

Weakness: Durability

I've had two of Seagate's "expansion portable" drives (not this exact model, but the portable version--the same external look though.)One had 1TB storage capacity, the other 500GB. The 1TB started ejecting itself more and more often after two months of use (despite energy saving being set to "off"). I was very careful with this hard drive, and the drive was not being moved when this happened.The other--my own fault, of course--was dropped from about 1m (3.3 feet) and its usb port broke (I removed the case and it looks like it's a cracked solder joint where the cable is connected.) The drive itself is probably Ok, but I can't access it as it is.

Strengths: Design, portability

Weakness: Durability

After years of being a complete Seagate fan, I purchased my first external drive. It worked fine for less than two weeks and then began making a cracking noise. I managed to retrieve my information in time. I changed it for the exact same model, this time it worked fine for a couple of months, then the cracking began and a few days later, it was impossible to recover the data.What happened with these guys? Yesterday I took the 1Tb model out of the box, brand new, and no machine was able to detect it.

Nice, small and great value
4 Star Review   By member Jabrown097 - Mar 4, 2011   

Strengths: Overall size and price

Weakness: nothing

This is my second Western Digital portable hard drive purchase and must say i don't see much difference overall outside of the convenience in size killer price. Great for throwing into backpack or duffel bag going back and forth to work or school.
