Starling / monzo / curve / Halifax clarity, those kinds
Shuck-able???
Fine for PS4, Xbox or archiving. I just wouldn't use these hard drives for anything else. Good price if you have a lot of games.

SMR drives are pretty poor. Fine for what I said but best avoided for anything else. They are really archiving drives and you won't find any tech storing important data on them.

Fine for use in a media server

I'll be using this to store customers data while, while I service their computer's, would this be suitable?

I usually shuck these cases, so I've never used one as storage cased. Even there, I think writing would be slow, so I would think they would be slow to write to as they are SMR drives.
The quckest way of getting data of a customers drive is to add one internally via a sata connector of course, but I wouldn't use a SMR drive here of course
Ok thank you for your responses, I'll do a bit more research
Looks like it's gone up now, still a reasonable price I guess for 8TB, but I backed out cos I'm tight.
