Lowest ever price. Works with Xbox One & PS4. Slim metal design. Automatic backup software. Includes driver for Mac so you can use the drive interchangeably without reformatting. Also includes 2 months free Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan. 3 colour choices at this price - Blue, Red, Silver.

There's also an option on the page to add 2 year data recovery for £10 if you're going to store really important files on it.

Nice find. Ordered one. Hope its not used and abused.
Thank you, Gem1ni0. Just ordered.
Great for installing all your games and not deleting them 😁 over 2TB on mine
14% 1 star rating suggests the reliability of this is the same as the reliability for most of Seagate 4tb drives.
With a 20% dissatisfied rating for a **backup** ie rarely used drive.

I've always wanted to know where the graph comes from.
Is this powered by USB?

Yep.
Not bad a deal. Don’t think it quite beats the £52 I paid for the recertified WD yellow thing I got a few weeks ago though 🤪
Can this be removed from the caddy and replace the drive inside a PS4?
Or is it the Seagate Backup Slim I need to get.
Thanks

It is hybrid PMR and SMR technology. These are probably the same people who yank the power out of their PCs to turn them off, the firmware doesn't like this. These drives also heat up a lot, keep them well ventilated.

Heat added but I shall refrain from purchasing just in case they have these or the 5tb on the prime day offers for a decent price.

(will just be my luck there won't be)

Good shout, just cancelled my order.
There's usually great deals on storage. I've still got a couple of those 8TB £120 drives from last year waiting to be used
I think they also had 4TB (3.5") for £50 so it's certainly possible.
had mine for 4 months and it died, losing 3TB of data.AVOID!
Never trust your data on a Seagate HDD, every single Seagate hard drive I've had in the past has died.

Nope, what link are you using? I get to checkout and it still says £85.00, address and payment details already auto fill in.
EDIT - Nevermind, see you're ordering it used, no wonder. A bonkers move BTW.

Nope, you're confusing me with sonicsez95. I didn't buy a used one. But to be fair, I've just tried going through checkout today and it's no longer applying the discount so something has changed since I posted yesterday
Would it be advised to not get a used hard driver of this size then ? I want 1 for my ps4 as my 1tb is full.
Useful tips on creating a backup plan.

Basically you want:

3 copies of any data you don't want to lose
2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example)
1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster.

Sorry to hear it, I learnt the hard way not to trust data on Seagate hard drives.
