UNBOXING: Seagate Expansion 500GB USB 3.0

Was running out of space from my 160GB Western Digital My Passport Essential. Bought this almost 3 years ago at 3000Php mainly for pictures and Outlook emails backup. Well I thought 160GB was enough for me since I don't download movies or series, but I was wrong. And so the search for a new hard drive is on! :)

These are my criteria  for the search:
  • 500 GB
  • USB 2.0 & 3.0 compatible
  • Less than 3500Php
  • Portable
*Backup software and color/design are optional.

We roam around Greenhills canvassing every store, and these are what we found: (now I can have a 500GB HD for my 3000Php vs 160GB 3 years ago. hehe)
After considering what I basically need (and mainly the price as well), I go for Seagate Expansion.

Let's start the unboxing...

Box contains the portable hard drive, a quick start guide (I don't find much information on the start guide though), a USB 3.0 cable, and a 3-year limited warranty.

Below are the specifications.

*details from Seagate website

It has a matte finish so less prone to scratches. 

It is quite bigger than the 3 other models (stated above), but I still find it lean and handy.

It works with Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Windows® XP. No need for external power supply or software installation as it is plug-and-play; saving files is just drag-and-drop. It also has a small green LED that indicates if it is being used.

The hard drive itself contains User Guides (in different languages), Registration, and Seagate Dashboard where it has a 30-day trial for Memeo Instant Backup or Memeo Premium Backup

*will provide more reviews once I have started using it
