Back-ordered. Due in stock February 17 -- order now to reserve yours

I don't know why the last deal of this FireCuda was expired. You can still place the order - you will just have to press the "other sellers" option and click Amazon. Amazon is now defaulting to a non-Amazon seller, because they are out of stock.

  • Game up to 5x faster than with traditional 7200-RPM hard drives.
  • FireCuda blends SSD with HDD for instant-on performance and the capacity you need.
  • Installs and operates like a standard hard drive; no additional drivers or software required.
  • 5 years warranty.

I was choosing between this and barracuda, I ended up picking this, because of the 5 year warranty. I think the extra 3 year warranty is well worth the £13.

Friend of mine just had a portable drive fail on her, She's a wedding photographer and was very upset about it. She contacted Seagate, and got a new drive and all her photos recovered from the failed drive. Cracking service if you ask me.

No joke.
I took a load of photos at a friend's wedding. I am not a wedding photographer, I contacted seagate, took a while to get a replacement hdd let alone photos recovered. they wouldn't get the photos back for me and said they can refer me to their partner company to do the restore at £50/MB. Now you can imagine the costs involved considering 1 photo is about 4MB. service was "cracking" for my relationship with seagate. cracked and broken, never bought a seagate again.

Your own fault if you don't backup.

Your own fault if you don't backup.


I didn't blame seagate for me not backing up. I said it was difficult getting the drive restored "let alone" get the data back. My comment was about the bad service replacing the drive. I mentioned it because I wanted to point out a fact that happened to me to balance the fact that happened to someone else where the wedding photographer's photos were restored. Little ol nobody here couldn't get seagate to do it.

but yeah, i have multiple backups. I have a raid 1 mirror using 2 drives and a stack of dvds. just in case. This was before the seagate failed. It was about a week after the wedding, just hadn't had time to move it on to my array. No excuse, I should have done it first thing

On site backup isn't a backup.

Consider moving it to a secure cloud service or leaving another copy at a relatives house.
Agreed, had 2 Seagates die on me inside a year, I would always rather pay more for WD but this is a great price if you get lucky.

can this be used on an internal pc?
seems weird that a 2TB Solid state is only £80

It's not solid state, it has 8GB of NAND cache.

Yes, it's a SATA drive so can be used in a PC, though you may need a bay adapter as it's 2.5".

This drive is an SSHD, not a SSD. Big difference both in terms of performance and price.

The H in SSHD stands for hybrid. It has 8GB flash + 2TB HDD which is managed transparently by the drive itself so you won't see multiple partitions.

It's a SATA drive, so yes.
cheers guys. might just got for an old style one while I wait for SSD's to get cheaper
