The 500GB 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. Plus, it is automatically recognized by the Windows operating system, so there is no software to install and nothing to configure.
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
The Seagate Expansion portable drive is compact and perfect for on-the-go storage. Instantly add more storage space to your computer and take large files with you when you travel.
