                Two Thumbs Up!

                Comments about Seagate 2TB Expansion Portable Hard Drive:

                This is an excellent USB 3.0 hard drive for the price. However, I'm taking away 1 star because transfer rates will never come close to the 4.8 GB/s manufacturer rating. Actual use hovers around 120 MB/s read/write which is much lower. Although USB 3.0 is noticeably faster than USB 2.0, the uber optimism is misleading to most buyers.Refer to attached picture for details.
