Superb external hard disk but DON'T give details for their promotional offer
16 October 2018
I got this for Rs.8000 on an offer and for this price this is a great hard disk.
It requires external power and works in India power rating. Has 5 removable plugs for different power sockets types and out of 5, 2 are standard Indian 2 pin plugs (low and raised).
The box contains a 1 meter length standard male USB 3.0 cable and power plug with different country adapters and the hard disk itself.
Has vents on 3 sides and can be kept vertical or flat. Has 2 USB slots on the front for USB drives for quick copy of contents from hard disk. 1 USB slot in the back for connecting hard disk to you PC or another cloud hard disk or Xbox etc.
Size is not too huge as some review said, think it as a regular internal hard disk encapsulated in a bigger airy compartment, this is required so the heat generated can escape better and can keep the hard disk running for long duration. The length is equal to Mi Pad 1 if you need to compare, 20cm L x 12cm B x 4cm H.
Setup is a breeze, just plugin. Once connected 3.7TB will be available based on the default format.
Write speeds on USB 3 is around 70-90 Mbps and read/copy speeds are around 140-180Mbps. Depends on the size of the file written/read and how full the hard disk. But don't worry this too much, USB 3.0 and this hard disk is really good.
You will find a folder which has a file containing links and code for registration of warranty.
I use this 4TB Seagate external hard disk as a backup for my WDMyCloud 2TB model (in wdmycloud you can use scheduled backup to another hard disk). Since it's a plug n play you can use it for any purpose with ease.
Comes with 2 month adobe cloud membership, details will be available within a directory in the hard disk.
When i bought this there was a promotional offer from the seller where i will get 1 year 1 pc Kaspersky Antivirus (just Rs.289 on offer). [NOTE]: For getting the antivirus for free you need to give you full name, mobile number, govt proof and invoice. This is like giving all the details to a hacker to try something. Please refrain from providing your Govt proofs.
