Reviews say its mains powered. Good deal if you don't mind having to plug it in the wall when you use it.

Need to amend your description OP as it's not a portable drive (i.e. not USB powered).

As mentioned by #2, it isn't a portable drive - please amend that part of the description as it's misleading

Of course it's portable. It's a full size drive in a caddy. If your too lazy to unplug it from the wall and take it with you then that's up to you.

In hard disk terms portable means USB powered. This is a desktop drive requiring its own power supply.

Would this be any good for a xbox one?

Correct me if I'm wrong but Seagate have the highest failure rate of most HDD's. Why would you opt for them?

That's exactly what I thought, I paid £59.99 for a 2TB Western Digital for that exact reason.

Think it depends really. If the info you're referring to is coming from Backblaze. The way they use their drives probably wouldn't correlate to the average home user (ie, drives that spin down when not in use are no good in their environment but at home it'll be ok)

Plus, there's the price - For not much more (£64.99 I think) you can get the portable/USB powered model which will work in PS4/Xbone, giving you 2TB in that and a 500GB external USB3.0 drive

Just had a WD fail on me after 3 years so not sure how good they are either.

On a ratio of 1/7 HDD fail in various brands of laptop, I replace 5 WD drives for every Seagate.
I myself would prefer Seagate.

I owned a seagate desktop hard drive a few years ago and it was by far the worst I have ever had. I would never go back to seagate an rather spend little more for western digital. My seagate was very slow and made noises like it was struggling to read. Can't comment on this model just my past experience with seagate

Ironically, my most failed drives have all been Western Digital...I think it's pot luck at the end of the day really

Sounds like we've had similar experiences...

Good price.

I agree, obviously there are billions of HDs in the world and only a tiny tiny fraction have been through my hands but I would say only ancedotally that seagate ones have been amongst the most reliable I have used.

I think the answer is: a significant percentage of all HDs fail, ensure you're backed up because you never know if it's going to be you, and it's a lot more liklely than winning the lottery.

Just tried to buy, it doesn't work.
