Seagate 8tb game drive with two USB port hub. Branded as for Xbox one however can be used with PC and Mac (don’t think these work with PS4 as they don’t like the hub).

Was £159.99 back in November but hasn’t gone back below £184.99 until now.

Great drives for shucking with a 7200RPM Barracuda Pro inside

Crazy cheap way to shukl it out and get a £200+ 8TB hard drive for £169!

There will be a few buyers bursting to get these

Not 100% but I think this version is the slightly newer seagate drive, the pro is slightly older and was sold first?

Think the 2016 ones were about 165 & these ones are about 190+ MB/s which is a big difference in speed

Is the drive any good to strip out and put in a Nas?

Hmmm... possibly mixed batches then. Either drive is solid, those compute drives are also very high speed 😁

Yes, that’s exactly what I buy them for and have them saved in my wish list each time I fill one
I have a few of these mining Burstcoin, they have been good reliable drives. Transfer rates are fairly low compared to Seagate Externals however brilliant if you have the extra time.

Are you able to make any money with burstcoin given how maxed out it is right now and how daft leccy is in the UK?

Would love some more info about this too. I'm on my pc every single day for say 10-12 hours (core i7 4790 4GHz, nvidia GTX 1070) & have 12TB (6ish TB free)

I'm using the leccy anyway, so if it's worthwhile for only a slightly higher leccy charge, I could be interested


I've just watched


and the setup process looks pretty simple. I just don't understand really what the potential rewards might be?

Ah the good ol’ Seagate reliability post
Backblaze latest stats rate them as good as WD for failure rate. I’m trusting Seagate with 46tb of live and daily backed up of live data with zero issues. I’ve had one 4TB drive fail out of warranty due to a bad sector near the start of the drive that kept causing a pool to fall over but all the data on the drive was still recoverable 👌

Currently you would be probably better of buying 160£ worth of Burstcoin(around 7k) than mining 8burst/day with 8tb drive. Although mining burst has other advantages when compared to ASIC mining. Part of your "principal" is protected because you can always sell your HD if price drops to 0.

Disclaimer, I mine (185 TB) Burst because I believe in it and I do occasionally buy it (when price dips and to hedge against difficulty increase)
Just had another seagate 2tb drive fail this morning in a 2 drive nas and this is the third one to go in it. The previous 2 were replaced under the NAS warranty which was longer than Seagates.
Only ever had Seagate drives, never had a failed one in almost 10yrs. I don’t think WD is any better, if a drive is going to fail..then it’s going to fail.
How does the drive in this compare to the Seagate backup drive which is an archive drive? Would be using as media center so speed not important

I've had a mixture of drives over the last 20+ years. Had 5 seagate drives fail. 1 disk controller fail. Others were mechanical faults. Had two drives from same batch fail within a few months of each other. Compared to 1 Samsung before being bought out. 1 Maxtor again very old day to day desktop drive had a hammering and not surprised stuck head which I managed to free with the old giving it a wack trick got my data off so no foul. Compared to 0 WD drive failures. I always go on personal experience with reliability of things like drives.

These drives are a lot better than the archive drive for that purpose. Archive drives are SMR drives so slower to read/write and if you frequently delete data and then overwrite then you’ll feel the pain.
