What can I store on this hard drive?
This hard drive has 3TB (3,000GB) of storage, so you have plenty of space for your files. You can store up to 23.25 hours of 4K video at 30 fps, 99 hours of 1080p video at 30 fps, 750 two-hour DVD films, 960,000 digital photos or 49,800 hours of digital music.

What difference does USB 3.0 make?
USB 3.0, when plugged into a USB 3.0 socket, can transfer data up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t use it with USB 2.0. This hard drive is backwards compatible, meaning you are able to use it with USB 2.0, without the need to update your computer. This means you spend less time waiting to ensure your documents, pictures and videos are safely stored on your external hard drive.

I have a Samsung smart TV. Can this hard drive be used with my TV as a DVR hard drive?

Unfortunately not, to increase your DVR hard drive, you would need to change the internal hard drive in the DVR itself.

will this work with a mac?

Asked by: photo84
The unit can be used on a Windows based PC or a Mac, it comes out of the box ready for use on Windows and would need to be re-formatted on a Mac for use on that system.
