    Bought to upgrade my stock PS4 hard drive. Formatted, installed software, and transferred backup. Can confirm I backed up to an internal hard drive using an external drive dock. Works perfectly.

    Quality No Frills Storage Expansion Drive, Fast USB 3.0 Connection, April 15, 2015

    The 2TB Seagate Expansion Portable USB 3.0 hard drive is excellent expansion storage choice in an attractive package. This basic drive has a lot in common with other USB 3.0 compact drives including a similar price. This is the current model of the older and well received Seagate Expansion STBX2000401 still available on Amazon.

    I have used a number of Seagate and Western Digital external USB 3.0 hard drives. Over time the newer drives tends to operate a bit faster than my older ones. That is my sense with this Seagate 2TB USB 3.0 drive when used with USB 3.0.

    This drive has been used in a Windows environment and it plays very nice. Some older Seagate drives did NOT play nice on Linux systems unless the drive’s sleep mode was disabled with the Seagate tools. If you plan to use the drive on Linux you may need to change the settings using Seagate tools on a Windows computer before use on Linux or sleep mode might cause loss of access until it is re-plugged.

    In my casual testing (copying a 9GB folder of updates, iso files, and many mixed large and small files) performance is on a par with other recent Seagate and WD drives I have for my own business and for clients. At this point I think the USB 3.0 external drive market is pretty much a commodity space.

    The drive fits easily in a pocket and as typical it uses a single cable for power and data making connections simple. The drive is compatible with USB 2.0, albeit at slower USB 2.0 speeds. The form factor for the drive is similar to the WD MyPassport Ultra and thicker than the WD My Passport Slim which are both more expensive. We are not talking about any big difference in size.

    The drive comes packaged with the drive itself, a shortish USB 3.0 cable, a quick start guide, and 1 year warranty. No fancy premium software is included. Just the basics.

    The Seagate Expansion 2TB is an economical commodity storage expansion. It clearly hits the target for the commodity USB storage market. Because it works quite well for a good price I’m giving this drive 5 stars.

    Hope this helps someone,

    Easiest plug and play for Xbox One, July 14, 2015
    By

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    It has been by far the easiest plug and play device I have used. I am using specially for my Xbox One. Xbox One recognized it right away and I had no issues whatsoever. It moved data over quickly from the internal harddrive of my XB1 to the external drive a lot quicker than expected. The only things I can complain about is that the LED light is way too bright when in operation and I have to turn the unit around when in use. Also, judging by the picture, it looks as if the outside coating would have been rubberized, but it is not. It is slick plastic.
