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.

The Expansion external hard drive can be installed easily by plugging in two cords. You can start saving your digital files to this hard drive within seconds of removing it from the box.

So does this just have a regular 3.5 SATA2 HDD in it? Any guesses as to the RPM?

Seems people having trouble with Windows 7 64bit so I'll try something else. Heat though!

Looks a good price to me... Might do some research when I get home.

I have the Seagate STBV3000200 3TB version, using it on a 64bit Win7 Dell PC (using USB2) and no issues at all.


Same deal as posted few weeks ago for currys pc world. Been this price since then on amazon.

I paid the same price for a 500GB a while ago !!!! :@ good find !

picked one up from currys at this price. does the job, and is currently tucked away behind the tv.

Any idea if this is compatible with a Raspberry Pi running Xbian?


Great price, recently paid 60 quid for a 1tb drive at pcw, heat added.

I liked the 3tb one posted for £89. If you can afford it then the 2 and 3tb external drives are much cheaper per gb.
It seems the drives in them vary according to what was available and if you do break it out, then you will void your warranty.

Or just walk into your local currys/pc world and get one without having to wait for delivery.

This works fine with Windows 7 64 bit.
The 3 Terabyte version has problems with Windows 7 as the format sectors are 4096 bytes not 512 bytes so Windows back-up utility will not complete. Both are fine for storage of other type of files, photos, music etc.

Excellent value highly recommended

I bought this drive a few weeks ago, thought it was pretty good at first but it died earlier. First hdd i've ever had fail on me and has had very little data written to it maybe about 500gb max, safe to say I wouldn't recommend. Think I might try the backup plus.

Anyone got this working with a raspberry pi??
