Amazon have dropped this down from £155 to just £118 now. The bad news is that Amazon will dispatch within 6-7 weeks, ouch! still available to order though.

HOT....but... what happens if it fails? 6000gb of data gone, soul destroying stuff.

If it fails, make a warranty claim, and use the data that you backed up elsewhere.
There, how hard was that?

...buy two! They're pretty unlikely to both fail at the same time...unlike the headlights on my Focus driving home the other night!! oO
hardly 6000Gb of data gone, in fact not even 5oooGb of data! about 4.3Tb ...

Would these be mint for Xbox one as well?

He is assuming that data placed on here will not be backed up elsewhere. As such, when the drive fails everything will be lost.

Which would be a stupid thing to do and only him/herself to blame if it did fail and data is lost.

Either get up to date with current hardware and proper backup solutions, or go back to the 90s and your 8GB IDE drives! Comments like these only highlight the posters' shortcomings in proper data management, backup strategy and archiving. Sorry to sound harsh...

Same could be said for any storage medium.

If you care about something make a backup, preferrably at least two with one offsite.
Ordered, 6-7 weeks delivery time though? Ouch Any experience with them coming quicker?

Was literally thinking this - My PS4 could really benefit from having an additional 10 times it's current storage limit!

Yup! Any external hard drive will work as long as its USB 3.0 compliant and at least 256MB.

Thanks OP for the code. Got it for £99.. Awaiting delivery



Care to share the code?

Thanks.
Code share please

Thanks

With a Seagate drive I would say unreliable - if course it depends on the exact model number but generic, home use drives are the most unreliable. Better to go with something aimed at the business/data centre market.

It is not really a Porsche - it has the same bog standard hard drive as the Skoda model.

And if its full of pirated stuff?
The clouds is where it's at for backups anyone who spends on external drives for backups is crazy. For extra storage fine but not as a backup solution.

I'd agree, however a lot of people have movies or tv shows they have obtained in a questionable manner - for these people, they would need a local backup.

Related to this, I read a forum post recently about people who want to use cloud-based Plex - so their content is in teh cloud on Amazon or Dropbox etc. Someone pointed out that even if they own the original DVD/BluRay - there are questions around the legality of making a copy.

So while I agree that a cloud backup is the optimal platform - I'd argue it depends what you're backing up. Also, ever tried uploading 5TB or data to the cloud...that would take a LONG time.

Bought a LaCie 2tb hard drive a couple of years ago, after just one year it has stopped working.
Might be a one off but wouldn't buy a LaCie again , expensive mistake !
