In case anyone's wondering, it's probably a Seagate drive inside.


​Indifferent, ordered a pizza.

I do like the LaCie stuff. I have the Philippe Starck one.

USB C is a connector , USB 3 is the speed with which it can transfer - think I am correct in saying (but check) you can defo use this drive you will just need a cable to connect if the drive doesn't come with both.

The USB C will be USB 3 capable

hello mate, usb 3 and usb c are not the same, you require a usb to usb c adapter to use this hdd on your mac. Link to an adaptor below if that helps:

Not the same but the 2017 iMac also includes 4 USB 3 ports

Thanks folks - better off buying a USB-C External HD then?

In this case certainly, I'd expect virtually all desktops with USB Type-C connectors to be using USB 3.

But in general there are plenty of devices, such as phones, where the USB Type-C connector is USB 2.

It's just a different connector that's more mobile-friendly because it's thinner, more robust and can be inserted both ways up.

It doesn't make any difference in terms of functionality whether it's a normal Type A or new Type C connector.

USB-C is a connector type only and independent of transfer standards, depending on the chipset used it can support different transfer standards such as USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3. Your iMac 2017 will be using Thunderbolt 3 via the USB-C interface.

"Thunderbolt 3 was developed by Intel[47] and uses USB Type-C connectors. It is the first generation to support USB. [48][49][50] Compared to Thunderbolt 2, Intel's Thunderbolt 3 controller (codenamed Alpine Ridge) doubles the bandwidth to 40 Gbit/s (5 GB/s), halves power consumption, and simultaneously drives two external 4K displays at 60 Hz (or a single external 4K display at 120 Hz, or a 5K display at 60 Hz when using Apple's implementation for the late 2016 MacBook Pros) instead of just the single display previous controllers can drive. The new controller supports PCIe 3.0 and other protocols, including HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.2 (allowing for 4K resolutions at 60 Hz).[51] While Thunderbolt 3 has small and no power delivery capability on copper and optical cables respectively, by using USB Type-C on copper cables, it can incorporate USB Power Delivery, allowing the ports to source or sink up to 100 watts of power, which allows companies to eliminate the separate power cable from some devices. Thunderbolt 3 allows backwards compatibility with the first two versions by the use of adapters or transitional cables.[52][53][54]" Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbolt_(interface)

Great for xbox

Does anyone know if this can be cracked open to get the HDD out from the inside?
Will it be a normal 3.5" Sata Connector HDD inside, or will it have some sort of funky connector that is only of use inside this housing caddy?

(Yeah I'm not to thrilled at it being a Seagate either, but £125 for a 5TB drive - I only need the raw drive, not the caddy, as I want to use in internal to my PC rig - isn't too bad.)

what a deal!

£25 per TB - not that good nowadays.

A few pence cheaper with a one click search ebuyer.com/709…200

But generally my target price on a deal is about £20 per TB.

​So basically the exact same price . Also £20 a TB would be better (obviously) but doesn't represent a massive saving. I'd rather deal with Amazon if I had an issue than ebuyer but that's just me.

£20 perTB is only my target price for what to me, would be a good deal - they turn up now and again. (and I am not going to go running for one right now)

Better off ordering from Amazon, eBuyer won't honour the warranty if it fails after 6 months

But the manufacturer will.

But it is our of stock anyway so a hypothetical problem.

Maybe you can post it as a deal when it is in stock.

But when it's back in stock the price may increase, if you buy it now you are guaranteed that price (the lowest it's been). What part of that is hard to understand? If you don't like the deal don't buy it and vote cold.

Just ordered, buyers using AMEX may get an additional £15 quid off if they redeem some AMEX reward points within the purchase... offer may be exclusive to certain users... I paid roughly £110

Paying for design and a generic Seagate drive inside.
