Happy with product.

Very satisfied with the deal


good product

Great plug&play, works straight out the box without installing anything, in the usual compact size.

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.

Good product, good price

Useful and fairly fast small data storage unit with good security features.

Good product at a good price.

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

Awesome product, awesome price

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

Lightweight and very fast communication with PC. Very good price too. Highly recommend this hard drive!

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

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

Love my compact drive with big storage

Great product.

Streamlined and lightweight design. Fast communication between computer and hard drive and has without trouble been used on many different devices with same speed.

It works well and quickly, has a great price, and looks nifty.

Good value, usb 3 gets average 140 MB/s transfer speeds. Small and compact, would recommend getting case for it if using for on the go drive

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 compact, no set-up required.
Great value for money

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

Good product, good price. Feels light and flimsy but hasn't failed me yet.

The hard drive is perfect, just plug and play, no glitches. Thanks to your great team.

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

Fantastic purchase I made. Keep on working that way.

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 good product

very happy with this.

I bought this product hoping it would help me feel more secure about the place my data is stored. I am a photographer and I have loads of files and folders that need storage.
The drive is fast and clean, providing exactly what I needed.
The only problem I experienced was with set-up, where it took extra long to convert the system from PC to Mac - and the instructions were outdated (old IOs system).
Very happy with this product.

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.

Works perfectly well, good price

Using this on my xbox one for additional storage - it works like it should so I can't fault it.

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


Lot of specials and quality products

All good

Very stylish and small

I’m happy with the product

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.

Excellent. Compact n fast

All good


So far very happy with the product.

Good looking hardrive that works great as well.

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

Pleased with my purchase. Thank you.

Great product and very compatible with other devices.

Good product.

Arrived on time.In well condition and I Like it, so far there haven't been any issues about it.

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.

Works like a charm.

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!

love it, it does exactly what it is supposed to.

It works exactly like its supposed to

All good

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

The cheaper plastic covering allows for a reduction in price. In my view a drive like this does not need to be super strong or long lasting. It's whats inside that counts. Good purchase!

Very good for its price. Upload and download speeds very fast, portable since its slim and light in weight. The internal fan sound is a bit irritating though.

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

Great product. Easy to use, except that it is not compatible with ps3 etc. Highly recommended :)

Product delivered to me with a fatal hardware error this unusable

So far not bad, works fine

Brilianr product.

Working well thus far. No problem for me.

great value for money!

Hi I bought this product in August, and already its not working.

Sadly its not working

Reliable easy to use product.

works great ?... courier service two days before time... definitely great quality... i will be shopping with you guys more often.

Excellent so far

very nice service


Light and compact, works well so far.

Great little drive. Does what it needs to do and easy to use. I do recommend getting a case for it though.

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.



so far so good

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.

A really awesome product and surprising quite light in weight. Love it!!

Awesome product, I haven't gotten any issues yet and I have been using it for a year now. Would recommend you buy the 2T however, cause the space on the 1T runs out quicker than you think. This is also dependant on your usage preferences though.

Excellent device, user friendly set up.

So far so good. No issues. Love it thank you

Amazing drive!

Im satisfied With he product received

it is very excellent

im very happy with the product and price

works well, not noisy and compact

Works very good

Delivered in time and it gets the job done.

Nice device easy to carry around and good speed.

I am happy with the HDD, it works fine and all is well.

awesome product
