Decent price, but I heard this has poor Write/Read speeds?

I recently went for the Portable version and for £85, it's not too bad as a Archive drive to my server.
If I'm understanding this right you can't just drag and drop files? It's gonna be done with some janky software?
For that price does anyone recommend I buy this to pull out the hard disk to put in a Nas drive I have setup as a raid backup

You can use it like a normal hdd, flash drive. These have an archive drive in them and are perfect for storing your backups and then putting them to one side. Not good enough if you want to use it to both read, write data and will be doing so constantly

So it's fine for me to just fill up with pictures and movies? Also this archive drive, is that like a separate section that has some space allocated or could I still use the 4tb normally?. Sorry if these are stupid questions. I've only ever used just basic hard drives

Thats fine, not stupid questions at all - If your pics and vids are on a main device like a NAS, external drive and you want to use this in order to just backup and not really touch, then its ideal and is what i use my 8tb one for.

Also you get the full space allocation and there isn't a partition reserved for anything else. Archive drive means the type of hard drive that is inside the case and they use a different type of method in order to write data to the disk. I would encourage you to read the following if you get a chance;
