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.. Seagates understanding that gaming is a large part of our lives is great. We like R&D heading in this direction too.

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.


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
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.

Super-fast storage in the palm of your hand

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

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.

This means you can copy over 60GB of data – typically the size of the latest AAA video games – in 30 minutes.

As it comes with exFAT formatting, the drive works interchangeably with Windows and Mac – allowing you to move files easily from platform to platform within moments.

Really a pain to wait for very large files to be transferred.

Such a pain waiting for games to be downloaded then transferred from PC to drive, then from drive to PlayStation

Not applicable to me currently, but an awesome idea if you have an Xbox

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.

The 802GB of useable storage on the Series X, or 364GB on the Series S, may be more than enough for some – but collectors and game hoarders will quickly find themselves filling up their drives.

The current drives I have have such slow transfer rates, it's frustrating!

Having mac and pc options in the family, this is ideal

"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."

This sounds like an easy option for a pretty non-tech person

Article 1
The Seagate Expansion SSD is available in 500GB and 1TB capacities – which allows for flexibility of choice based on your precise storage needs.
It’s small enough to slip in your bag, while adding up to 1 TB capacity and delivering solid state performance reaching up to 400 MB/s.
So whether gamer or business purpose? It DEFINITELY WOULD BE ready for IMMEDIATE DUTY & ACTION!!

Hence with fast loading speeds and can still use the Quick Resume feature to jump between titles within seconds, DUDES! I FEEL THAT WE HAVE ARRIVED AT THE MAIN PORTAL POST FRONTIER!
