"The transfer speeds are fast enough to allow you to stream video straight from the SSD" -
Due to the fact that I am limited with hard drive space, this will allow me to use my laptop for more than merely file storage and coding. It will open it up to far more possibilities.

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.

Because who enjoys waiting for data to transfer?

Seagate One Touch - '4-month Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan"

This is beneficial to myself due to the fact that I am an avid photographer, looking at dipping my toes into the Adobe Suite. Couple the 4TB included with the drive, it is a perfect combination

With the amount of data generated every day, large capacity drives are a must!

Xbox Expansion - "offer the best possible speeds for the new console on an external drive" -
This is a fantastic addition to the consoles, which should have been higher from the get-go. Seagate has made the leap and offered us gamers the opportunity to keep multiple games on hand, instead of picking and choosing which one to delete to make space for the next. Excellent addition.

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.

No cables make it much easier and clean.

Article 2
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.

SSD Drive
I've got an external hard drive for my Xbox, but what I've noticed is the games launch and run slowly on it - with an SSD drive it'll be like the games are installed on my Xbox, but I have an extra 1TB of space for all my games, what a pleasure! Hope to win this guys, awesome products! Cheers.

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.

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.

Enter Seagate​

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.

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 One Touch Portable – Big storage in a compact package​


Fast and easy transfers​

To see how the Seagate One Touch Portable hard drive performs, we put its transfer rates to the test by measuring how quickly we could copy files to it from our Windows computer using the included USB 3.0 cable.

Copying a 1GB folder with videos took less than 20 seconds – revealing an impressive transfer rate of more than 50MB/s.

Nice to have big data storage on the go!
