Article 1:
i would find the high transfer speeds and the 1TB storage option very useful because i consume and transfer a lot of data frequently, this becomes unbearably slow because i currently own a hard drive with low read and write speeds and just 500GB of storage. solid state drives are just so much better.

Article 2:
this would be great for backing up my data and i wouldn't have to worry about making sure that every file is selected for back up because of the included software for back ups.

Article 3:
an extra storage option for the Xbox Series S or X would be great because nobody uses disks anymore and storing games digitally is a lot better than storing it on a dvd which is prone to damage.

Article 1 (Seagate's Expansion External SSD):
The best feature with this product is Data protection. Given the state of our electricity state of affairs, power outages are a thing. I as a consumer would want to know that my data is secure from any power outages that are bound to happen due to loadshedding. It is a great feature and will come in handy for all South African consumers.

The most outstanding feature with this product is free photography plan. We all use Adobe from day to day and most of us use the free plan and aren' t accustomed to the premium benefits that are available on a paid plan. When one buys this product they get to unlock those added benefits at no cost at all so it is a win for all that purchase this device.

Article 3: (Seagate expansion card):
It was a difficult task choosing a feature that is the most beneficial with this product. Firstly this is made in partnership with Microsoft, this is a major exclusive partnership that is guaranteed to offer great results for the gamer. The standout feature has to be the plug and play feature. The device is very simple given it's size. Every gamer will enjoy how seamless it is to setup and enjoy their games at no added effort.

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.

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.

Article 1: Super-fast storage in the palm of your hand
Feature:
"This sleek drive can fit into most wallets and any laptop bag, allowing you to carry your important files with ease wherever you go. "
"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."

Why: 1Tb ultra portable SSD speed storage and reliable - ultra useful. Mechanical mobile hdd drives are flimsy and unreliable. I have a nice leaning tower of trash 2.5" drives.

Article 2: Seagate One Touch Portable – Big storage in a compact package
Feature:
"This allows for either on-demand, one-click backups or scheduling automatic backups in hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly intervals."

Why: I suck at backups. It would be very useful to have a backup solution other than slow cloud for hourlies.

3: Compact and compatible
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.
