Seagate Expansion

Hard disk size: from 500 Gb to 4 Tb
Hardware interface: USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0)

Do you like objects with a slightly different design and would you like an external hard drive that also reflects this side of your being? One of the best hard drives for you, then, is the Seagate Expansion.

It is a thin device composed of a very light 2.5 “case and a hard disk that can store from 0.5 Tb up to 4 Tb of data. Here for all your storage needs you can have the ideal amount of TB available. The strong point is certainly the design: rectangular, but with a worked surface by inserting many small pyramids in it.

It is small and practical to carry with you, shorter than a pencil, to make you understand its dimensions. It is of the HDD type, has a rotation speed of 5400 rpm and interfaces with the PC or the other device via a USB 3.0 port, backwards compatible with devices that have only a USB 2.0 port. it has a rather high data transfer rate, up to 5 Gbps, if you use the USB 3.0 port.

Its operation is simple. All you have to do is attach it and, if it’s a Windows PC, the recognition will be immediate and instantaneous. For macs we recommend formatting. Backing up your files will be a breeze, thanks also to the intuitive Seagate Dashboard software with which you can, among other things, program the files you want to back up and set their cadence.

A simple and intuitive use, a good availability of storage capacity, a not excessive price and a beautiful design. If to this we add that the internal hard disk is a Sata III disk, and therefore reusable in the event the case is broken, we can confirm that the Seagate Expansion external hard disk fully deserves to become part of our special classification.
