It's not PC hardware, it's just a HDD. It's not specific to PC or Windows, these can be used anywhere, PC, Macbook, PS3/PS4, PVR box, anything that takes a 2.5" drive. It even says PS4 in the item description.

Can i put this in my laptop guys?


Yes you can.
I have 4 of these, 3 across two laptops and one in my PS4
I've hated Seagate HDDs for years, but these new firecuda drives are really really good
Really improves speeds without the huge expense of going for an all SSD storage

These work great in a laptop but depending on what you use it for, you could consider going for a smaller SSD of say 240GB to give you very quick start up times, and an external 1TB HDD for your media. But that costs a bit more than just getting a 2TB internal HDD for everything and some people prefer one big hard drive but with slower working speeds than splitting across SSD and external HDD.

I was tempted by one of these, but everything is based on it correctly guessing what data you're going to want, and then loading it into the on board RAM when it doesn't get it right it's incredibly slow, and there are question marks over long term reliability with the RAM.

An interesting concept, but not one which has been adopted.

It's not console specific/branded hardware so having a console game included would be strange.
That's what I meant anyway.

Yeah what I meant is the code suitable for redemption (unlike your cold dead heart ) on a PC or a PS4 xbox , but I suppose it must be ...

Except by every datacentre in existence.. cold data on tape, warm data on disk, Hot data on flash

Might want to mention its a copy for the pc in the title. My little ps4 owning heart jumped at the deal then sank just as quick.

Don't want to over fill the title but I've included it in the description. It's a shame people are so lazy and don't read before commenting.

I've got 3 x 2TB Seagate drives that became corrupt.

I backed up one Seagate to the other Seagate, everything was on the new backup, I could access it, run programs, play media.
Turned pc off, the next day the backup drive was corrupt as well.

It has taken me days restoring the data with Easeus Data Recovery Wizard.
Luckily I got it all back. It's take about 4hrs to scan a disk.

My Samsung mech. drives are still working and they are years old, they shouldn't have sold that off.

I use the Toshiba X300 drives now.

have has this one and the nonsshd version in my basket for a while now
i am right in thinking these are the only 7mm form factor 2TB HDDs that currently exist? (ssd dont count unless you're buying)
was cheaper a few days back - didn't post as doesn't seem much off

I'm gonna grab a couple of these drives and hopefully flog Assassins Creed for £22 each.

What were the drive model numbers?
That way we know which ones to look closely into and potentially avoid assuming they weren't from an anomalous bad batch.

Good grief, wind it in seriously, i wasn't having a go. I did read the title and clicked through, you have to click trough to read the description where yes you've added that its for the pc. Pc, two letters you could easily add two more letters you've got everything bar the kitchen sink in the title.

Barracuda 3GB drives, not 2GB.
They don't seem to be mechanical errors because I am recovering the data from them and I don't think they have any bad sectors/clusters. Going to scan for that later just in case.

Windows will not boot if these drives are installed internally, USB3 works with Easeus Data Recovery.


If you ever get a fail, use SATA to USB3, the device cost me £4, I use power from the PC.
(5cm x 5cm size found on ebay)



The one in front of me was manufactured in Nov 2012.

It wouldn't happen to be this model would it? Link

They've improved immensely since that line was introduced.

Ok

ST3000DM001

Yes.

One is actually a Samsung but that was due to copying corrupted data from the Seagate.
The Samsung is a 2TB drive.

You can get 4tb which is double the capacity for another 10-30. Cold.

Do you get a game with it?

rlr82 Dont confuse the 3.5 with the 2.5 , the smaller drives are always more expensive, and then the sshd version is more expensive than the std version ...
I need a small amount of bulk storage so I think I'll go for the 1tb version sshd sans game £55...

Thanks. I'm just going to sell the game on a buy/sell page.

Other than the code, what product information will I need to give to the buyer for them to download the game?
