5* Seagate External Drive 500Gb
Reviewed by Driffter on 12/08/2014
On my second unit now, just plug and play I use them on my Humax Recoder it can store 180 films with ease, I always leave about 12% free. Comes with USB lead and emits no noise whilst in use. Also have the 1TB and is the same in every way, storage 360 plus films with space to spare. Highly recommended.
