Seagate Expansion STBV2000100 2 TB 3.5" External Hard Drive


Seagate Expansion desktop drive, add-on storage for your PC

The Seagate® Expansion desktop drive provides extra storage for your ever-growing collection of files. Instantly add space for more files, consolidate all of your files to a single location, or free up space on your computer's internal drive to help improve performance.

Setup is straightforward; simply plug in the included power supply and USB cable, and you are ready to go. It is automatically recognized by the Windows® operating system, so there is no software to install and nothing to configure. Saving files is easy too-just drag-and-drop.

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.

  • Great value for the price

    I use this mostly for photo and video backups, but I've recently been adding some old applications that I have as ISOs and stick them in an "apps" folder. Never had a problem and it reads and writes fast with USB 3.0. I've shot thousands of RAW and DNG photos as well as plenty of 4k video and I've only used about 1/3 of the space so far,

  • Good size and decent speed

    It could have been better having a 7800 or 10k RPM drive instead of a 5400 RPM drive given the USB3 connectivity. Works great hooked up to an **** router as a media storage device using the **** server to share media around the house to various device.

  • Good drive

    Drive arrived quickly with no issues. We hooked it up to a new XBOX and it saw the drive right away. With the USB3.0 access on the External drive when playing games on the xbox you cant tell the difference between installing games on the external drive or installing them on the internal drive.
