Real people Review Seagate Expansion Desktop 2TB – STBV2000200

Maria:  More capacity at a lower price.

Increase capacity but the price of them goes down a bit, it’s wonderful, and if not come down in price to keep them is more than enough, as currently having 2TB is more than enough, but in a few months this sure has changed. This disc is ready to transfer files at high-speed, although this computer (usually) source is that you have a USB 3.0 connection, and today not everyone possesses, well, almost none. A disc that has a system of independent current with what we need an outlet nearby, but saving this peculiarity is a normal disk, a small one, the only thing is that if you weigh a little, but hey, is not negative. The speed of files is fast, but with a USB 2.0 connection port, have not tried with a USB 3.0 port for now, but I’d appreciate the speed at which it can run. Files are treated like any other disk, you just have to drag them from one point to another, then see how the album starts running, makes a little noise and a slight vibration. It’s not expensive are talking about and drive 2 tb Seagate, which to me is a great brand, and important quality. Currently doing very well, we use it as a giant warehouse, and we do not usually delete anything, only we put files in the business, and is perfect. You can put it on any computer, just plug it in, wait a few seconds (depending on the computer) and you’re not recognize it as another drive, it is very simple.


Today we’ll talk about this new hard drive that I have. I bought it because I run out of space for another hard drive of the same capacity. This hard drive as I say in the title is 2 TB. It is a product that is designed for computers that have USB 3.0. although if you have version 2.0 on your computer only does not have problems. I am using usb 2.0 and I am going great. What I can tell you that I have more than 40% used between backup nero backup, videos and documents golds. My User Input: It is a product that is not of my highest cost me about 84 € in February 2013. and is a very stable product has not yet given me problems. I must comment that is connecting and working as soon as it detects that you check if you see the light (blue) flashes when the detecting or are working with him. Until I think of something more

I’ll be fast as the HDD. Comfortable and spectacular design, simplicity, and very quiet. The USB 3.0 cable long enough so that you can place on the part of the desktop / table where you will do better. Some of the higher profits that I see is that no on-off button. If you remove it safely turns itself off automatically. If you turn off the pc itself off, you have to go specifically to disconnect.What a great advantage it. I can only say that after comparing brands and prices in stores neighborhoods. In this business have the best price and quality assured. Greetings I’m still impressed as you may have taken this external hard drive for just 70 € for me is the best price I’ve seen.
