by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hey everyone digital david here today in this video i'm gonna be unboxing and reviewing the seagate eight terabyte external hard drive i did purchase this product myself and any opinion expressed in this video is strictly my own that being said if you're interested in this product you want to find out more about it the link to it will be in my video description below you can see how it comes packaged to you right here in a very simple retail box this is an eight terabyte external hard drive

Usb 3.0 works with mac and pc and it has 5400 rpms as the speed now let's go ahead let's open it up and look at the package contents here all the package contents first up we have four australia only compliance information followed by our quick start guide walking us through in multiple languages how to set everything up then you can see we have different power adapters depending on the region and country that you live in then you can see we have our power plug

Right here where we need to attach one of the included power plugs let's go ahead let's slide the us1 in place right here so let's line it up slide it in just like you see right there and we're ready to go then you can see with a usb 3.0 cable right here with a usb type a male end and a micro b end right there for us to use so just pay attention to what that looks like then last but not least we have the hard drive itself right here

In a big plastic glossy enclosure you can see our usb cable plug right there and our power port we have four triangle feet in the bottom for nice grip you can see the ventilation holes and design same for the sides you can see what we have right there in the front with the seagate logo on it it is a square enclosure you can see just rests just like that with no issues now let's go ahead let's power it on and try it out

So we went ahead we plugged the external drive into our windows 10 computer and it popped up right away it really is a plug and play external hard drive nothing else we had to download to get to open up to be able to use it here you can see everything that comes on the drive straight out of the box we also went ahead we opened up the drive property so you can see how much free space we get right out of the product packaging we get 7.27 terabytes out of the 8 terabytes total and 355 megabytes is

Used with everything that you see right here we also conducted a free test if you want to try this out on your own hard drive to see what sort of speeds you get using crystal disk mark and you can see our read and write speeds right here for the drive they advertise it at 160 megabytes so we actually over achieved a little bit on our test right here we got 193 megabytes for our read test so everything works great no issues at all we get 7.27 terabytes

Out of the 8 terabytes on the drive and we do get their advertised speeds and actually a little bit better out of this drive so here are my final thoughts on the seagate eight terabyte external hard drive overall i think it's a great deal if you're on a tight budget and you're looking to store a lot of your files and you need a ton of space eight terabytes so that being said it's a great deal but at that lower price point comes lower performance right you have a 5400 rpm drive

It has okay read and write speeds but if you got to be using this day in and day out all the time eight hours a day you're probably going to want to look at a 7 200 rpm drive a 10 000 rpm drive or upgrading to an ssd external hard drive for those faster speeds but keep in mind with the better performance comes an increased price tag so overall i think this is a great deal if you're on a tight budget and you need a lot of space to store your files

Honestly my least favorite thing has nothing to do with the performance about this drive the capacity or anything like that it comes down to the hard drive enclosure it's got really sharp corners on it and it hurts i'm not gonna lie so it's not very comfortable to move around or hold thankfully you don't have to spend a lot of time doing that plug in your cables set it on your desk and you're all set and ready to go well that concludes our video thank you so much for watching don't
