The Seagate external hard drive is a fantastic piece of equipment to have. It will allow you to greatly expand your hard drive space and be able to take it with you, or move it between computers easily. I find it great to be able to store movies and music/podcasts on. Depending on the player you have you may be able to simply plug the drive into the USB port on your bluray player and “stream” movies/music directly from the drive. Extra hard drive space is always good, being able to take it with you is even better. At 1TB you can store a lot on it.
