Seagate Expansion 500GB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STEA500400) | Review/Test

2 Reasons For for Choosing the Seagate STEA500400

Better Kagoo Score

The Seagate STEA500400 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb scored 86, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB scored 87 and the Seagate Expansion - 2TB scored 85.

Newer by Four Months

The Seagate STEA500400 was released two years after the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb, released four years after the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, released four months after the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and released 20 months after the Seagate Expansion - 2TB

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Seagate STEA500400

30g Heavier

The Seagate STEA500400 has a weight of 170 (as does the Seagate Expansion - 2TB), whereas the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb are all 140g external hard drives (30g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the external hard drive, measured in grams (g).

A heavier hard drive will be bulkier, and more annoying to carry around.

Vastly Smaller Hard Drive Capacity

The Seagate STEA500400 has a hard drive capacity of 500, however the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and the Seagate Expansion - 2TB are all 2TB external hard drives (1.5TB bigger) and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB is a 1TB external hard drive (500GB bigger). More ...

'Hard Drive Capacity' denotes how much data the hard drive can hold, measured in gigabytes (GB).

A bigger hard drive capacity means that it can hold more files and data at once.

Slower Data Transfer Rate

The Seagate STEA500400 is a 5 data transfer rate external hard drive, and so does the Seagate Expansion - 2TB. That's 4,995 Mbit/s slower than the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb, the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb (5,000 Mbit/s). More ...

'Data Transfer Rate' indicates how fast data can be transferred to/from the external hard drive.

Faster data transfer speeds means that you will be able to transfer larger files to/from the hard drive faster.

More Expensive by $12

The Seagate STEA500400 is $12 more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 1TB, $11 more expensive than the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb and $5 more expensive than the Seagate Expansion - 2TB.

Less Retailers

The Seagate STEA500400 is only stocked by 6 stores, whereas the Seagate Archive HDD Backup Plus Portable - 2Tb is stocked by 9 retailers and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim - 2Tb is stocked by 10 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this external hard drive remaining in stock.

The cheapest price that we could find for the STEA500400 in the US is $62.08 and in total we found 6 prices for it.
