Questions and Answers

Do you have you a question about the Seagate Basic 5TB 2.5 inch USB 3.0 External Hard Disk Drive?

Q: I am a little confuseed about the USB status of this drive. Basically will it work on a usb 2.0 system as i want to plug this into the back of my NAS drive to back it up (for an off-site backup). In the KEK FEATURES section on the SPECIFICATION page; there is a RED cross against USB 2.0/ USB3.0 and the page only talks about USB3.0 BUT on the OVERVIEW page you say it is compatible with usb2.0 >Transfer files fast with USB 3.0, backward-compatible with USB 2.0 I thought all USB3.0 Device would work on USB2.0 but I am having my doubts now.

Does what it says on the package and works perfect.

Does what it says on the tin. My only slight gripe is that the supplied USB cable is a little (~0.5m) short for where I want to use it.

Soon as I got it I ripped it apart and used it as an internal, so much cheaper!! Great little drive it's a barracuda lurking inside :)
