Great value! ByStan

Love this drive. Small footprint for the capacity and it runs really quiet! Forgot I installed it. It is sitting behind my screen backing up without a hiccup. I highly recommend this.


    Excellent External Hard Drive for a good price.

    I have always had good experiences with Seagate products. The Seagate 8TB Expansion Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive has been no different. It is a good product for a reasonable price.
