Great price for 5tb! Heat

Has anyone tried flubit on this previously (I'd guess they won't do it now if out of stock).

Great find, thanks for posting!

I doubt I'll use Flubit again to be honest, went through them for a fairly expensive fan (£85), and the one I got was second hand from an Amazon marketplace seller...

I have this. No reliability issues whatsoever.

When I've used them in the past they usually state who they're sourcing from when making the offer (I think) as I'm sure I've declined offers after finding the merchant mainly seemed to deal in second hand items (though I could be misremembering).

just sent one back to amazon , recieved corrrupt, ****

Don't trust flubit - gave me an offer, I accepted it, then they cancelled saying out of stock, amazon had gone up 3x the price

Seagate = lowest quality HDDs on market....ask yourself why they're always the cheapest?

Here we go again! Evidence please? I've personally had no issues with any Seagate drive I've purchased in the last 10 years (and I've built & upgraded dozens of machines in that time). People say Western Digital are 'better' and 'more reliable' but the only 2 drives I've ever had fail on me were both WD drives (and one of these I had to pay postage back to the States to be able to get a replacement!). This is a great price for a 5TB USB3 drive - I've had one of these for 6 months now and it just works.... bargain :-)

So all items that are cheap are low quality? OK, i'll by the most expensive from now on then, thanks for that fact.

Agree with blackster Over the last 6 years I've accumulated 7x3TB, 3x4TB and 1x5TB all Seagate. This was my choice drive when I had a WD external fail. I use these externals for video project backup. My backup process involves main copy on internal drive and 2 backups on 2 different externals.

i dont agree with what he said but i do agree that seagate are probably the worse for reliabilty... i have seagate hdd's though cuz they are cheap and its only downloaded media... so can be re-downloaded.

Yep, it's also best practice to have backups of important data, very easy to do, so no excuse really.

This drive is SMR based for those interested

Looks good, thanks. Bagged one for myself.

You actually need to read these rather than just looking at the headlines:

"Your risk of a complete hard drive failure over the long-term might be higher with Seagate than Hitachi, Backblaze's numbers suggest at first glance but there’s no guarantee that will happen. In fact, Backblaze's earlier study showed that hard drives are actually pretty reliable overall over a four-year stretch, even in a server farm. And hey, a number of individual Seagate models actually had a longer average age than Hitachi products!"

Seagate have made a few 'less reliable' models in the past, but these we mostly lower capacity, old technology drives. Don't believe the headlines is all I'm saying :-)

Very tempting, but I am still only using 500GB of my 3x3TB array...

Never had an issue with them. But I had several with WD.

I got one via beat my price £105. Only annoyance for me is that my router refuses to acknowledge more than one partition and my new TV doesn't even recognise it at all... PC shows all partitions fine, quite frustrating as I was hoping to avoid a new NAS solution. My problems are obviously faults of the router and TV no the hard drive... nice and quiet and quick access.

Young un! My first (Apple Mac) had 80MB. I remember wondering how on Earth a CD (for my 4x External SCSI CD Drive) could hold nearly 10x more data than my whole PC! :O

Some TV's don't like drives formatted to NTFS (mine is one of them) Once is was formatted to FAT32 the tv recognised the drive. Google a program "fat32format" It will overide the 32gb windows limit and format a drive of any size!

Haven't tried flubit but used bespokeoffers instead and was offered the same drive for £99.55 delivered
May be useful to someone else too and don't foget 12.5% quidco may be possible with bespoke as well.

All of the brands are prone to failing. Personally its WD drives that usually die on me. Seagates have been good to me, and I have a 15 year old 250GB one in my PC now! Hitachi Spinpoints have the lowest fail record out of them all. Worth Noting.

How did you get this price ???

Careful - it's just Flubit under another name.

I think Flubit's had so much bad press for cancellations, sending a cheaper item than the one you thought you were getting, and just sheer, awful bad customer service, that they've decided to trade under the Bespoke banner so that people don't realise it's the same dreadful Flubit.

Where did i say that Western Digital are better?, I never even mentioned the word Western Digital, personally I have the new Hitachi drives in my NAS, they are flawless.

And to confirm, I've had several Seagate's die on me both externally, internally, desktop and portable drives.

I don't need any Evidence, just search the internet and you'll suddenly look a bit of a jester.

No this is a desktop drive that plugs into your PC via a USB socket, you need a 2.5" internal HDD if your upgrading your PS4 (Either a 1tb or 2tb will do the job nicely)

Has this ended cause I cant see that price anywhere?

Samsung made Spinpoints, not Hitachi - and I agree they were very good.

Unfortunately, Seagate bought Samsung's HDD business and shipped the presses and tools out to China. Any Spinpoints you see now are just rebadged Seagates, and should be avoided at all cost.
