£88.72 / 6 = £14.79 per TB
vs

What drives are in these?TIA
Cracking price for a 4tb
I have one of these attached to my Xbox One X for game pass etc, and it’s great, speed isn’t any better than internal drive, but no worse either, great if you have rubbish internet like me and want to keep as many games downloaded as possible.

Love that there is an option to pay £59 for expert installation.

Wow... Incredible! There probably are people who mashed in the USB lead upside down and wrecked their xbox

They must wear a mask when they come and plug it into a 13amp socket and slot in the USB cable, and walk off. There’s literally nothing else in the box, and it’s already pre formatted to NTFS. There’s nothing to ‘install’
If we weren't so close to the PS5 coming out I would get one straight away. The new consoles may use a different form of storage

Great price but I'd recommend paying a little bit more for a portable drive
Is it easy to extract the SATA drive from this ? Bare bones 4TB HDDs seem to be more expensive than this ?
sreenireddy15/02/2020 09:57

What other forms of storage are available?


The games might need the speed of solid state storage to work, nothing funny about what he said.
Seagate disks seem to have greater reliability problems than other brands at this point in time: backblaze.com/blo…19/
If you're going to shuck it then there are (usually) much bigger USB drives for less (about $13) per terabyte

Yeah, you invalidate the warranty as the clips break.

That's what I thought/assumed but ... just a basic search for 4TB internal HDDs on Amazon comes back with nothing anywhere close to the price of this

Yeah should be absolutely fine and a huge storage upgrade. Bare in mind you’ll need a power supply and a free USB port for this.

If you must have this size for some reason then this seems to be good value at the moment. But I usually look in the 8-16 terabyte range where prices per terabyte are usually cheaper. I stopped using 4 terabyte disks several years ago. They simply weren't big enough

Yes as external drive it will work
Would this be ok for a Shield?Cheers

Very true but not really a like for like comparison - and not really relevant for anyone who has no need for 16TB storage ( and let's face it, not many people - especially those who are looking at this drive - do ).

I am just amazed that the bare bones version of this drive is nearly 50% more to buy than this.

Well I didn't say I was giving a like for like comparison, didn't you read what I said?
And traditionally bare drives are always more expensive. If you shuck a drive enclosure unless you are very careful, you void the warranty
Fredthepunk15/02/2020 11:47

I guess it would protect a small area. Depends on your size really.
Any idea if taking the drives out of the chassis ruins the warranty? Might put these into a NAS

True, but the more data storage you have, the more you cram on to the drive, and the more you will lose if it goes bad.

Cold not SSD.
I would personally get the rescue plan package. My seagate failed (beeping noise when plugged in) but got my data back because of this
I only need 1tb to be fair. Mostly music
