  2.  Seagate Expansion 500GB review: A no-fuss portable add-on storage that looks good & works even better, within a budget! 25 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Seagate's - Expansion 500 GB - is an external hard drive which is portable and USB 3.0 plug-n-play, right out-of-the-box.

    The drive is enclosed in a matte black enclosure which looks decent and comfortable to carry in pocket or purse but upon closer inspection you'll find the plastic build quality is not of premium quality and neither rugged like, say, Transcend. Butter fingers beware!

    The actual drive inside is a non-removable (warranty void if removed!) 5400rpm drive (with 465GB actual formatted capacity on Windows PC) which draws power from USB port when connected with the accompanying USB 3.0 cable. The cable itself is fairly short but gets the job done and good for portability purpose. On a side note, there is no carry case or soft pouch provided like, say, one that comes with WD drives. That would have been handy!

    This is a fairly basic portable add-on storage drive and does not contain Seagate's dashboard utility for backup purpose that comes with Seagate's Backup Plus series.

    The crux of the matter though is the performance of the drive. Although the drive is backward compatible with USB 2.0, for optimal gains it is recommended to be used with a USB 3.0 port (blue color). The practical sustained transfer speeds of this drive are atleast two and a half to three times more than those over USB 2.0 for same transfers. Thus, a 60 minute transfer over USB 2.0 takes less than 25 minutes over USB 3.0 with this drive (from 30MB/s Vs. 80MB/s sustained speeds). With ever-increasing digital content this is a much needed breath of fresh air.

    Overall, a no-fuss portable add-on storage that looks good and works even better, within a budget. Just remember; Do not drop the drive & do not lose the cable.

  3.  Aptly named. 15 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    It's an aptly named expansion drive with USB 2.0 interface. A nice and a recommended deal, but...let's get to that in much more detail.

    PROS:
    - Simple to set-up. No ON/OFF toggle switch, just 'plug and play'.
    - Stylish in design.
    - 1 TB size
    - 2 years warranty

    CONS:
    - Backup software isn't a part of the inside the box contents. You'll have to use either the native Windows backup (which sucks) or some 3rd party software, which might cause compatibility issues.
    - A little thick in size.

    Summary:
    I bought this because my 500 GB expansion (Western Digital) was full. I was in urgent need of a drive that was budget friendly. I clicked, and there it was at my place. Two wire, one for USB and one for adapter, though I hate wires, these are the least they could manage and I'm happy with two wires.
    It works just fine, though it experiences issues when the size of the file being copied is more than 1 GB. Gets little slow, but that's totally bearable.
    You won't regret buying this fatty, I only object to them not providing their own backup software. Using the native windows or some 3rd party software is not a recommended choice. But since they didn't provide any, I stuck to the native Windows software.

  4.  Nice product with value 4 money 6 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Hello all.
    I have bought this product from amazon last month in 4097Rs. I would say its truly worth such cost. I have searched so many sites and local market but find cheapest price at Amazon. thanks 4 that.
    Lets talk about it build and functionality.

    1. Size- 931 GB available as its showing 1TB though
    2. Fiber body with small size. Can keep in pocket easily
    3. Speed ----with one large file over 3 gb it gives transfer speed around 25mbps but for moving many low size files like mp3 or text file etc it will give u only speed of 14 mbps.
    4. Compatible with any kind of windows.

    What i don't like about the product?

    The inbuilt software for managing hard disk of seagate company is not working from the day i installed it. I should say the software which is provided by hard disk is not even able to run in any computer i have tested so far.

    Over all it worth 4 ur money...surely go 4 this product.

  5.  Compact and Light 18 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Have been using this for the past three days. Listing out the key features and the things that i like and dislike:

    Liked:
    Design, Size (Fits to your pocket) & Weight

    Disliked:
    Body is plastic. There is every chance that damages can be quick if you are careless.
    USB Cable is too short
    Speed is not great. Average speed is between 20 & 25 KBPs.

    Given the price for which i had purchased it, i am pretty happy as it was on deal that i got on Amazon.in was atlest Rs. 400-500 less that what was available on other shopping sites.

    I would recommed it to you if you are not a very frequent traveller as ther are every chances that if you misplacing/droping by mistake it can create a great damage and this is because of the size and the built quality.

  6.  Additional storage 28 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I bought this and got it on 25th of this month promptly from Amazon. Performance is good and drive is silent and doesn't seem to overheat during extended use and extensive read/write actions. Transfer speeds averaged 27MB/s according to Teracopy free version software. I bought this mainly for I have an old laptop with a 40GB hard drive which is pretty inadequate regarding storage so needed more and 1TB from Seagate will do for my needs in the present and future too. Wish prices would come down though, ideally 1TB should be 3000/- or below. Still worth it considering it comes with a 3 year warranty and I've been using Seagate drives since 1998 and replacement of the odd faulty drive is guaranteed so I've also bought peace of mind for 3 years. Recommend it !

  7.  Best in class portable hard drive. 2 July, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I bought this one six years ago and mine is perfectly fine till date. I love the blue color that appears in the dotted pattern on its body when you transfer the data.
    The data transfer speed is adequate as you don't see any latency in data transfer. This is easy to plug and play and I think its useless to describe the qualities of Seagate hard disk which is ineffable.
    However I would like to highlight that this is the master piece. I also bought one complementary docking station for this hard disk which looks pretty cool and your hard disk remain docked on this while you are transferring data.
    You must not think twice before buying this. I shouldn't forget to mention that I bought silver color one which looks beautiful to carry.

  8.  great storage and highly reliable 11 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    I am using the seagate 1td external storage for about 8 months an there no problem of croupt data or any usb problem.

    very easy to use just plug and use it give 25~30mbps maximum on usb2.0 which is great

    it very helpfully for student and office where large data take lot time and it help to avoid problem of using multiple pendrive for large data

  9.  Very good HDD for backup 30 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    In last few years Seagate ave come up with many new models and this one is one of it. Although it not have any separate-able part like the other variant, the backup plus, this drive is just same as that backup plus drive except for that featured I mentioned.
    If you are a little bit tight in your budget, and can not but the backup plus, its big brother, go for this drive and you would never be disappointed.
    Coupled with 3 year warranty from Seagate India, no other drive can possibly match this one in the price range.
