I just received this external hard drive... I had absolutely no problem connecting.. I just plugged it in my USB and was able to do backup instantly!!! since I am not very technical, I was afraid of running into difficulties but NO - it works fast and plenty of space for what I'm going to use it for...

also shipping was less than 3 days!!!!

This harddisk is perfect. It can plug and play without any problem with my Windows 8, and I receive it within a week. Awesome

Great price for a huge amount of storage space! Was shipped out and delivered the next day. This hard drive is extremely portable, it's so small I could carry it around in my pocket. It's extremely easy to use, just plug it in and your good to go and drag'n'drop any of your files into the device. Also the device is USB 3 and 2 compatible, which is handy for older computers. I would recommend this to anyone who's just looking for extra storage and nothing fancy. It doesn't heat up and comes with a 1 year limited warranty for defects. Which unless you are accident prone or are careless with what you do on your computer the 1 year limited warranty should be all you should really need.

This Seagate Expansion 500 GB Portable External Hard Drive STBX500100 runs on USB 3.0, which is a major improvement over the older 2.0 version, with transfer speed up to 5 Gigabits/sec, versus 480 Megabits/sec of USB 2.0. Computers with USB 3.0 are still relatively rare, but this Seagate Expansion Hard Drive is backward-compatible to USB 2.0, which is what I got in my HP desktop. The hard drive is plug-N-play. Within seconds after I plugged it in, it was up and running. A USB 3.0 cable is included. It is different in construction from USB 2.0 cables. A tiny blue LED lights up when the connection is made. Power is drawn from the computer via the USB cable. No AC transformer or cord is necessary. The actual read/write speed of a hard drive is not the same as the USB transfer speed. I tested this hard drive with a software called DiskBench. The write speed of this Seagate Expansion drive ranges from 114 to 170 Megabytes/second and the read speed from 384 to 614 Megabytes/second, which are decent. This drive is highly portable, measuring 3-3/16" X 4-13/16" X 1/2" thick. The capacity at 500 GB is limited but it is ideal for travelers to carry selected data. I don't have USB 3.0, but I can see the logic of buying a USB 3.0 drive for a computer with USB 2.0, because USB 3.0 will be the standard in a few years. I can't speak to the drive's reliability, but I own two Seagate external hard drives and they have been very reliable.

This external hard drive seems to be working well. It is still too early to say much. Setup is simple and quick.

I just bought this product because my personal computer hard drive was near full and I'm really satisfied about this product : it's small, fast and can be use with USB 2.0 or 3.0! If you want an external hard drive, I suggest you really consider this one!
