The 1TB Expansion Portable Hard Drive from Seagate offers an ideal way to store your critical data. The drive's USB 3.0 interface allows for a transfer rate up to 4.8 Gb/s. It's also bus-powered, so there's no bulky power adapter to deal with. The drive even comes with a USB 3.0 cable so you can get started as soon as you open the box.

Portability is this unit's main selling point, though. The slim form factor and lightweight casing make this drive an ideal companion for laptops and Ultrabooks, as it will never weigh you down.

Simple
Setup is simple and straightforward; simply connect a single USB cable and you are ready to go. The drive is powered from the USB cable, so there is no need for an external power supply.

Speedy
Take advantage of the fast data transfer speeds with the USB 3.0 interface by connecting to a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 for additional system compatibility.
Store More

        Comments about Seagate 1TB Expansion Portable Hard Drive:

        even though the description states for Windows, i am using it with Mac's Time Machine. You just have to format it to work the the Mac using Disk Utility. In fact, the first time you plug it in, your Mac will ask you if you want to use this hard drive for Time Machine and will prompt you through it. The drive is noisier than other drives i've used, so i am giving it 4 stars instead of 5.

          This little Seagate gets the job done. I use it to keep my photo library backed up and it is great. Best attributes are its small and runs off USB power, and I've never had a Seagate fail on me before 3 years!

          BTW for those choosing between this model and the Slim: IMO this is better than the Slim version since it's cheaper and really, not that much larger!

            We bought 2 to backup our PCs each month and store the drive off-site in our safe deposit box at the bank. We back up our PCs each month and swap-out the one in the safe deposit box.We keep the cable attached to the hard drive at all times because others have had problems with the connection. We store the hard drive with the attached cable in a sealed Ziplock bag to prevent the unlikely possibility of water damage.

                      I store pictures on two external hard drives, both right out of the camera, as well as those I edit. I set up a catalogue system within the portable Seagates and when saving, locate the correct heading to file them under. I've used Seagages in the past and have had no problems with them. I take them on trips, and use them to daily download my raw files, then free up the cards for more shooting.

                        I use this as a backup drive for my laptop. The drive is thin and compact and has a short (~3") USB cord. Seems pretty fast. Works flawlessly on Win 8 without installing the drive software. I use it with SyncToy 2.1 and have had no problems or complaints to date.

                          I forgot that I ordered the portable hard drive, so when I opened the box and found a TERABYTE drive as small as it is I was surprsied. I love that it doesn't require a power cord, and I love how quickly it loads onto my computer. I have another Seagate external drive, and it takes about twice as long to load thumbnails onto my screen. This drive was much better than I expected.

                          Comments about Seagate 1TB Expansion Portable Hard Drive:

                          I have only had this for about a month and so far it seems great except for the slightly flimsy feel to it. Right now, it's more of a 4 & half star for me but I have not used it enough.
                          The design, the speed with my Windows 7 and 2 years old netbook is much friendly but that is more of my netbook's fault. Other than that, the compact design is really handy.
                          My files are mostly from my research work and I plan to use this for backing up. My previous external was also from SeaGate and I have chosen the same brand as I have been really happy with it. So my expectations from this are high.

                            Purchased this as an additional back up and, so far, it has been working great. I work for a Cable MSO/ISP and Seagate was the recommended brand from my network department friends. It is small and compact. For comparison sake, my smartphone (although thinner) is bigger. Copying files is simple drag and drop.
