Or try this link for WD 4tb £86.99 (although my Seagate vibrates less than my WD drive)

I hear Passport is slightly better, (Preinstalled Software and its smaller) probably best to spend £3 more

I disagree with this drive ( WD) as been a better Deal.............My personal opinion Only.
This hard drive can be taken out (SATA interface) or disassembled for more options eg: PS4, internal etc.. and you will be able to save the data if or when is eventually dies without too much of a problem....The WD will be a lot more problematic trying to harvest your personal data.
Each to their own if you are looking for a 4TB storage portable....this is the one to get for the reasons I have stated and it is a far more reliable make. Again just my opinion.
Both are good deals regardless of which way you decided to go. I will vote hot for both deals .

Interestingly, the Passport is actually the chunkiest in terms of thickness, albeit there’s not much in it:

Seagate Expansion: 117 x 80 x 20.9 mm (L x W x D)
WD Elements: 110 x 82 x 21 mm
WD Passport: 110 x 81.5 x 21.5 mm

In terms of which one to go for, guess that depends on what you’re doing. The software on Passport is useful if you’re doing backups on a PC, but worthless if you’re buying the drive for an Xbox or PS4 as it will get wiped anyway.

The Seagate has a proper SATA connection inside, so it’s the only one where you could extract the drive and fit to an enclosure if you ever had a problem with the connector.

Are you sure about the connector? I know the 2tb has a sata connector inside because I opened it and use the drive in a laptop. But I haven't opened my 4tb drive because it wouldn't fit in a laptop (too thick).

100% SATA interface...Just the actual drive is slightly thicker 15:mm approx compared to the standard thickness of the 2TB version.
Will fit in the 1st gen PS4 no problem, but slim and pro would need to open them (voiding any warranty) up and mod the cages.
Same may also apply for some laptops, You may squeeze it in some or need to mod others.
The other recent deals posted for the 4TB WD alternatives will have no such luxury's and once they die,Then you will have a monumental task to extract any personal data if it is important.
There has been a lot of portable hard drive deals lately and I suspect prices may drop a bit more ? as manufactures must be getting ride of older stock, ready for the new breeds.

Anyone know how long the warranty is on these?
edit: nvm, reading amazon reviews > 2 yrs.
Edited by: "trogggy" 29th Mar
These are sniffing around in stock in quite a few postcode areas in maplins for £83
edit:.
They have now bumped the price up to over 90 odd...No wonder the company is going into liquidation ,
They also have the Samsung T5 USB3.1 SSD 250GB = £100.13p Cheapest I have seen that drive for a while and it is quality.

edit:
T5 still available thou for £100.39p That is still a decent price for this and quite a few dotted about in postcode areas.
Worth a look as they may just be close to you for pickup if you deciding to get this Hard drive.

Thanks very much for this info, kevan. I will open mine after the warranty is up (I've got Seagate recovery warranty). Perhaps it will fit my Latitude 5540.
