It does what it needs to do, no hiccups

Happy with product.

A hard drive is just another hard drive. Works perfectly for what it was bought for. Again, as said before. Takealot is just a cut above the rest. Excellent service.

This was a gift, I only purchased this as I had received this as a gift previously. No problems, easy to use.

Works well, no complaints. Good price

Arrived quickly, stores well and design looks nice

looks nice slim so far works great

Plug and play. Super easy to use. And fast transfers from PC.

Great product!


Awesome product

stopped working after 1day's use. not satisfied.

This is a AWESOME DEVICE!! Love the fast action and processing, no issues and I am able to use the device for all types of files storage even when full no slow processing to play or open file with any media program :)!!!

Good looking little HDD and very good value for money.
Will recommend to friends and family

Very light, doesn't feel like a proper hard drive but it works and does it's job.

So far so good


This is an excellent light weight expansion drive at a very reasonable price; easy to carry, easy to connect.

Very stable products and delivery was nice and early

Functional, aesthetically pleasing and inexpensive...a good buy!

Works faster and i got it for a reasonable bargain price. Love Love it

Great product, even BETTER price!!

great product

it's working fine

Great lil product, easy to use obviously..

No issues, just plug & play..

Great looking product - compact and worked seamlessly as described.

very convenient and easy to use

Got this on a slight special. It was between this and a Toshiba drive at the same price. Research indicated that this was the faster one. So far it's working fine. It's much lighter than my previous hard drive. I like the look of the casing, but in real world use its not overly flashy or anything.

Good price

Great products. Seeing around 90 to 100MB/s for most files. Small quick and reliable is all you really look for in a portable HDD

Bought it to use as an expansion for my PS4 and works just fine. No more having to delete games. Games stored and played from the drive do not lag in anyway either. Just smooth gaming

was easy to verify the warranty and has a lot of storage space


Super fast, good price. Definitely better than the Toshiba!

very happy with this.

Great product! Great price!

Excellent product

Purchased it as I am an avid Seagate fan. Unfortunately it broke shortly after a month, resulting in my loss of data. Sent it in for a return, hopefully I can get my money back.

money well spend.

Simple to order, delivery on time, and plug and play, IE easy to use.


All good

Very stylish and small

Amazing product, quick service. Will definitely be purchasing another.

Great product. Slim and light.

So far so good.

Light, portable and efficient.
I trust Seagate's quality and I am happy with the amazing service from Takealot. Thank you.

if your going to protect it with your life then that's ok. These hardrives are ANTI-SHOCK proof. Meaning they might be able to handle a couple hits to the ground but its not guaranteed that it will recover from that. I agree with everyones reviews but rather purchase a TRANSCEND RUGGED HARDRIVE.

An awesome harddrive at a great price. It's fast and reliable.

It works like a bomb.

So far very happy with the product.

One item for all your files with lots of space! The best.

Reliable so far


Works Pretty well no issues so far.

Quick and light in weight at a reasonable price

Great product and very compatible with other devices.

Good product.

So far so good.
Does what I need and that's securely stores my personal files.

Excellent service delivery & effortless process.

Good product for backup of data

Value for money. No problems at all

Very happy


Great product with high transfer speeds. Works perfectly.

Good product

Awesome piece of equipment.

If anyone was like me, wondering whether this would be able to work as storage for your games on Xbox (didn't try PS), let me save you the extra work I did with regards to searching the web for hard drives for your Xbox storage and what's good or not. I've recently purchased this and so far, it works as well as the internal storage. No lag or reading problems, just plug in and play. Would recommend it for back-up, media and gaming use ????

Very happy and delivery was 1 day earlier :)

I bought mine knowing it didn't mention Apple Mac compatibility, formatted it and has worked perfectly on my Mac. I am using it just for back up storage, so it isn't being used as a portable hard drive.

Nice looking design.

I have had the external hard drive for four months now and it just stopped working. How long is it supposed to work? I have put all my photo's EVER on it and it is all gone now. I took it in to be recovered and they said that all my data is gone. I know that external hard drives cannot take a fall or even the slightest knock, thus have I always treated it with respect. But now everything is gone!!!

Fast copy speeds, aesthetically pleasing design...good buy!

I like this Portable drive,It is light and easy to carry. Very small in size. Its compatibility with most windows operating systems makes it easier to use because the is no need to install other soft wares to your computer in order for you to be able to use it.

awesome item,works beautifully no hassles

Good product

Great value for money. Looks cool. First external I've ever owned and I am pleasantly surprised.

Excellent value

Easy to carry around, and it doesn’t have a long USB cable

Works like a charm. Fast and looks slim and easy to carry around.

This 1tb expansion hard drive looks and feels very nice and reads and writes fast. Only problem is i didn't get any receipt on my COD (Cash on Delivery)

Great service. Awesome device. Content with can't wait for the next order

Good quality. Have no problems. Very happy that I purchased it!

Product delivered to me with a fatal hardware error this unusable

So far not bad, works fine

Working well thus far. No problem for me.

great value for money!

Sadly its not working

very nice service


Light and compact, works well so far.

great product at an affordable price

Great quality, my order came in great condition (even the packaging).

Hard drive runs smoothly and runs all my Xbox games that I store on it perfectly.



I was very thrilled to order the 1TB external hard drive However, 2 days after I received the package I saw that another store were advertising the same make, but a 2TB external hard drive for only R70 more. I guess I need to be more vigilant.

Excellent device, user friendly set up.
