Review 4 for Seagate Desktop Expansion 500GB External Hard Drive
As the digital contents such as music, video, photos and games have become more integrated to our everyday lives, the idea of static data storage is becoming totally obsolete. And with today’s on-demand work, you would want to access, share and secure most of your digital content using the dynamic storage solutions that gives us freedom to do our day to day businesses, create and interact anytime and anywhere. In short, storage today is not just about keeping your valuable data secure, it is also about making your information and media accessible wherever you are and the best solution for this statement are the external desktop hard drives.
The setup and installation of the Seagate Expansion 500GB Desktop Hard drive is very easy and you will be ready to use the drive in just minutes. Connect one end of the power cord to the power supply socket on the back of the external drive and the other end to an electrical outlet. Then, attach one end of the USB cable to the port on the back of the drive and the other end to an available USB port on the back of your desktop or notebook computer. Please note that you must not connect the USB cable to any of the USB ports on the front of your desktop computer or monitor as it might cause the external hard drive to malfunction. Then just press the power button on the back of your external drive and that is it. You will find the green LED on top of the drive glowing which indicates the activity of the drive.
A notable feature of the drive is that, it is energy efficient too. Seagate has employed a built-in power management feature for giving you an energy efficient operation. Additionally, the drive is a very silent operator, even while transferring large number of files, we were not able to hear anything. It was simply amazing.
Seagate Expansion 500GB External Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive is very cost effective. The price tag is stunning as for the capacity of 500GB, you will only find the drives at double the cost that is quoted for this drive.
Seagate Expansion 500GB External Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive is a very economical solution for those who are looking for a budget drive with large capacity. The good looks, nominal speed and energy efficiency features of the drive, make this a recommended solution for anyone looking to buy large External Hard Drives.
