Seagate Portable 2TB (STGX2000400) External Hard Drive
  • The storage capacity, and portability are their biggest pros.
  • It's cheap, and large capacity that's the only thing it has going for it.
  • Product is used to store digital images. Very good capacity, good write speed, extremely easy setup.
  • It’s high capacity & fairly fast when connected to a USB 3.0 port. And it was a low price per two gigabyte. So I recommend it.
  • I started populating drive with all my stuff until I encountered some errors while writing on it. I did a surface scan using SeaTools utility and found the hard drive failing on some tests.

What customers say about "Features"
Seagate Portable 2TB (STGX2000400) External Hard Drive
  • Fast write and read speeds. This is amazing. I recommend this product.
  • It is compatible with Apple and Microsoft products and can be password protected. Very good product and true to the description.
  • I'm a huge fan of these for backup drives. Small, cheap, portable. I can buy two and have redundant backups in case one fails and it doesn't cost and arm and a leg.
  • The physical size of the drive makes it handy and when I am doing a great deal of photoshop illustration work, I don't have to worry about file size nor storage.
  • Supplied USB 3.0 cord is short. Got a 6ft USB cord from JSAUX.
  • Very disappointed to find, despite the description that this hard drive is not suitable for Mac.
