Decent price for a 4gb external. Shame it's Seagate.

Can be used on Xbox One , you also keep the space of the internal Xbox One drive as well as that doesn't need to be removed.

Hi, not that fussy about makes but can you recommend about some good options please. I need to transfer old VHS videos and need a lot of storage. Also I was wondering if it is possible to make a video transfer at the same time in 2 different USB3 hard drives, just for safe keeping.
Any help will be appreciated please

Like I said before:
Seagate is the worst hdd brand.
Now you can save money but after year or two you gonna lose your data... 4TB of data...
And... 2 years warranty, C'mon.

To be fair anyone storing 4tb of data they wouldn't want to lose with no backup copy needs to be worried whatever brand of drive they use.
If your data doesn't exist in at least two places (and ideally 3 with one copy in the cloud or off-site) then it may as well not
exist at all

Quite possibly but hard drive prices fluctuate..If only we had a time machine to go back and get the cheaper price..

You wont need lots of storage.
3 hours of vhs quality (480×320) AVI is usualy only a few 100 MB at most.
Making copies from one usb3 device to another will take about 3 seconds.

once upon a time.... still cant forgive seagate my 2tb data loss...

why arent there any 4tb internal drives at this price? you would have thought they would be cheaper, instead i will probably have to rip one of these apart

anyway, heat added for a decent price

I wish it was, but fully uncompressed is that not at 640x480 at a cost of about 4gb per hour?? Same for DV, can someone confirm please or am I wrong?

possibly if you did it some way that didn't use compression then could even go over over 70gb an hour.
There is absolutely no reason not to be using a modern compression codec such as .h246 / mpeg-4.
You could record up to 720 x 576 resolution if you wanted , but VHS only uses alternate frames of interlaced picture so is not 'technically' that resolution.
480i (or 576i) is what you'd be recording. you could convert to progressive scan later, but compressed it'll be almost the same size.
Possibly the easiest method for vhs to computer is use a VHS-DVD machine and then you can just copy the DVD to your PC.
Compression has come a long way in the last decade , what your pc would have struggled processing 10 years ago your current entry level graphics card can do with 1% of its power.

this drive has been sub 100 for a while now so fairly standard. i bought one ages ago at 115, its a pretty decent drive. fairly quiet, no issues.

I've got this drive and it works fine

Admittedly I normally for for Western Digital but couldn't turn it down (paid £5 more than this price)

I've also got 2 320gb Seagate drives I bought over ten years ago and both of them are going strong. Gave 1 to my parents to encourage them to backup their data :D

Older Seagate were as bulletproof as the others, however, it's not the case anymore.
There was a big to-do a couple of years back about Seagate cutting their warranties from 3 to 2 or even 1 years on some of their drives. I had one of those, failed after 13 months of use, in a most spectacular fashion.

Ever since the floods, their production has been of poorer quality, hence cheaper prices and shorter warranties, they don't trust their own product.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a big scratch drive, this might be what you need, but for valuable data, you want at least 2 backups. One kept on-site with the machine, one kept somewhere nearby such as at a family member's house. With 2 backups of your machine, you've got 3 copies of your data, and if all 3 of those get destroyed by the same event, data will be less of a priority.

How is it Seagate's fault your drive and all of your backups failed at the same time?
