Some customer reviews of Seagate Expansion 3TB

Most helpful reviews

Dietmar, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Seems to work quickly and fairly quietly
Bad points:
The design is a bit daft - can only lie flat rather than stand vertically, and the on-light is not in a sensible place.

No useful advice for Mac users.

Can't assess reliability yet, as only had it a few weeks.

Ryan,

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Lots of storage and USB 3.0.
Read and write times seem OK with normal use on an xboxone console.
Bad points:
Remains on when Xboxone is powered off, and it sounds like the disk is trying to read (spinning fast). I just unplug it, and plug it back in when I need it.
Just a minor inconvenience.

Neil, Northampton

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Just plugged it in and it worked. Is virtually silent especially when compared to my 1TB 4 year old HD that drowns out the laptop fan. Also about 50% smaller than the "old" drive.
