hope price must be 6200 to 6800 INR as its cheep in USA

Because this model in Seagate's external hard drive series has such massive storage capacity, we are somewhat impressed. It is only a hundred dollars more than the 1TB model, and it is not much bigger as far as size and weight goes. This model also features Windows-friendly enhancements such as plug-and-play and advanced power management. Despite failing slightly on the performance side, this hard drive has great features- most notably, the huge capacity.
Probably the two worst flaws of this hard drive are the lack of FireWire and slow RPM speed. Sure, USB 2.0 offers speeds up to 480Mbps, but there is a noticeable difference between 7200rpm and 5900rpm. The higher the RPM, the better the performance, so in this case, performance suffers. But if you're aiming more for high capacity rather than high performance, than this is the hard drive for you. Otherwise, you may want to downgrade or look elsewhere.
This product is a tricky one to weigh as far as pros and cons go. It is definitely a value hard drive, since it features humungous two-terabyte storage capacity. Unfortunately, the drive speed is a downgrade compared to preceding models. If you're looking for a high-performance hard drive that features 7200rpm and FireWire, then you may want to consider a lower-capacity Seagate or competing hard drive. But if speed and features do not matter and capacity is all you're looking for, then the 2TB Seagate USB 2.0 external hard drive is definitely the way to go.
Huge storage capacity- two glorious terabytes of space
Average cost- price may seem steep but actually saves money
Windows-friendly- lacks FireWire but supports USB 2.0
Good support- compatible with plug-and-play and power management
Lacks performance- lower speed (5900rpm) than standard (7200rpm)
