Reviews
2TB Seagate Maxtor STSHX-M201TCBM, Portable External HDD, USB 3.0, Bus Powered, w/ SafetyKey, Carbon Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for money The case is made from plastic, but feels quite strong and sturdy - the way the disc is built into it suggests the manufacturer took proper care with the design and construction. I used the equivalent 4TB disk as a backup device for a number of years and it served me very well. In this instance I removed the disc inside (Seagate ST2000LM007) in order to put it into a RAID array; it was easy to partition and format and is working well so far. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the long term reliability of Seagate devices is questionable, but I am happy so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2TB Maxtor HX-M201TCBM3 Portable External HDD I bought this as I was changing my whole computer with stuff I have saved over the past years I had a lot of data to save. moving everything from one PC to another was so easy with this HDD, with it being USB 3.0 everything was very quick, the build quality of this drove is fantastic, so good that I actually bought another just a few days later for my daughter to have with a backup of all our family photos and videos that she now keeps plugged into her TV for easy viewing, the other one I have connected to my New PC and acts as my 3rd HDD for backups and more storage, very impressed with this item. I would recommend this drive to anyone who needs more storage

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disk is OK, the software is DANGEROUS The drive itself is OK. This is the only positive thing I can say about this product. DO NOT - I repeat, DO NOT - install or use the software which comes with the drive (Clarus Drive Manager). I made the mistake of installing it and it silently wiped out hundreds of gigabytes of my data from the drive I wanted to have backed up (to the M3). Recent backups + an NTFS file recovery tool saved the day, but it was a harrowing experience nevertheless. If you decide to buy this drive, use another backup tool or just copy files by hand. AVOID the bundled software LIKE A PLAGUE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I wanted it to do I use this device to back up my MacBook pro. It appears to work well although (fortunately) I have not needed the back up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than happy to pay a sensible price for a great product. I’ve had a couple of external hard drives now, several of them have simply stopped working and made annoying rattling noises, but not this one. It is near on silent compared to my PC, has a very handy indicator light to show that it’s working, and has a very robust design which I am sure would prevent serious damage should it be dropped, a not uncommon phenomenon. All in all, a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impressions Replaces my ageing 2T external HD - with separate power supply and USB3 connector. Small, light and very quick to load files in Photoshop Bridge - impressive speed as expected with USB3 - currently has 1T stored. If it lasts at least 5 years then I will give the 5th star for build quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to I just plugged it in and it worked. Very quiet and doesn't even get warm when used hard, so what more can I ask?

Questions & Answers

What file system does this external use?

Does this hdd have the FAT32 file system so I can use it with a PS4?
Asked by: Crackedfingers
Apologies - I don't remember how this disc arrived, but if you have access to any form of computer, it should in most circumstances be straightforward to reformat it. Beware that some versions of Windows are awkward about formatting large disks as FAT32, in which case your best options are to download the Ridgecrop formatter (free) or do the format from within Windows PowerShell.

Is this compatible with an Xbox one ?

Asked by: Thesimpsons08
It will not be plug and play, you will likely need to format the hard drive to the FAT32 file system from NTFS as it will be out of the box, but after that it ought to work fine.
