Article 1:
As it’s a solid state drive, the Seagate Expansion SSD also offers greater reliability and much faster transfer speeds than typical external hard drives.


File transfers can go up to 400MB/s when used with a compatible USB 3.0 port. This means you can copy gigabytes of files in mere seconds.

this is very useful feature especially with large files I frequently copy

Simple and seamless backup
The One Touch HDD also offers an array of software which makes it easy to back up all your important files.
This allows for either on-demand, one-click backups or scheduling automatic backups in hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly intervals.
You can also mirror folders for simpler file management.

this is extremely useful, as just before I leave, I can plug and start my backup to finish overnight

Article 3
The Xbox Series X|S Expansion Card is a powerful external SSD which adds 1TB of capacity to your console and offers the same super-quick data rates of your internal storage drive.

This custom-built SSD is made exclusively by Seagate, who partnered with Microsoft to offer the best possible speeds for the new console on an external drive.

The highly compact plug-and-play drive requires no cables or installation, and can simply be plugged into the purpose-made slot at the back of the Xbox Series X|S consoles.

Once connected, you can instantly install games directly onto the drive and play them from this storage device as well, negating the need for you to manage and balance your files one way or the other.

very useful, as I wont run out of space constantly.

Article 2:

With up to 5TB of storage, you will have space for hundreds of full-length movies, thousands of series episodes, or hundreds of thousands of high-quality photos, songs, or documents.

Article 3:

Thanks to the card’s seamless integration with Xbox Velocity Architecture, you will get the same fast loading speeds and can still use the Quick Resume feature to jump between titles within seconds.

Seagate’s Expansion External SSD:

Data protection included​

Whether you’re using the drive to store precious memories or important work, you don’t want to worry about your SSD being compromised or damaged.

Fortunately, this Seagate SSD offers support for Rescue Data Recovery Services – which is included with your purchase.

This helps protect your data from anomalies like power outages, natural disasters, user error, and viruses for the duration of the drive’s 3-year warranty.
Why: Piece of mind about being protected from losing data.

Seagate One Touch Portable:​

Additionally, each purchase of the Seagate One Touch drive includes several value-added features.

Firstly, you get incredible photographic tools with a 4-month Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan worth over R600.

The package includes Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom – which enable you to edit, organise, store, and share your best photos.

In addition, each drive includes an annual subscription to Mylio Create, which lets you organise your media and adds automated protection.

For peace of mind, Rescue Data Recovery Services is also included, ensuring protection of your most precious memories and important work.

This will cover you for data loss and retrieval services in the rare event that the drive fails or breaks because of natural disasters – such as flooding, lightning, or a fire.
Why: Awesome added features.

Nice to include some form of cover to try and retrieve data - can't imagine losing 4TB worth of backups in one go!
