Last week last week..... Get the time machine out!
Heat from me

Not actually the all-time lowest price, as the 5TB ones were £114.99 last week. Still a good price, though!

Great price. Also got one for £115 last week and have been impressed with the speed of writing backup data to it. Well over 100mb/sec continuous writing.

However, might be worth pointing out that these are SMR drives (google it if interested) and are better for archiving data which will not regularly change...which is perfect for what I need. But if you use this for ever changing files then you might find it (write speeds)slows down significantly as it starts overwriting old data...

Great product. But not the lowest price ever: I got this for £114.99 last week from Amazon.

5 TB is only worth 5 TB if you can back it up. To loose that much data makes me feel faint.

Great find

Will this work with a Xbox one x?

Seems like a great price for a portable, i.e. no power adapter needed. There was a 4TB drive for more the other day

Terrific prices. Had got the 2TB version of this for £57 last week and am impressed with the build quality and read-write performance thus far. Seeing these prices, I wished I had waited for this deal instead as could actually use the extra space in the next 12-18 months. Alas, am sure another great deal will pop up in that time

Of course

I'm really tempted to get this & strip it it out for use in my PS4 Pro, but I can't find much online about SMR drives in consoles. During gameplay, the HDD is mainly used for read activity, right? I can't think of many games that write on the fly, aside from autosaving.

Only advice I'd give is that if this is for PS4 or Xbox One/X games then you'll only need 1 as games can be re-downloaded from your account if the drive fails. Any other kind of data you probably need 2, one to write to and one to back up to.

4TB Red was £92.99 yesterday:

hotukdeals.com/dea…344

£95.99 is still decent though

Any good deal for 3.5 inch hard drives for PC?

Can this be used for external PS4 use, I’ve already got a 2tb and can’t be doing with the hassle of swapping over again lol

Does anyone know if this will actually fit in a PS4 pro bay? When I put a 2TB in there it seemed to have a bit of extra space

I bought the 4TB version and it just arrived and is plugged into the USB port on my PS4 (not Pro) and is seen as extended storage, capacity 3.68TB (4.04x10^12). Given the thickness of the case I doubt if the drive it contains will fit internally.

You say that like it's a joke but actually the "last week" comments above deterred me from taking advantage of this deal. I really like the thought of buying everything at it's "lowest price" and if I know something has been cheaper before, I rarely purchase! So unlike yourself, I really appreciate those comments

These as reliable as WD?

I am looking to get the 1TB. Is £48.99 a decent price or i can get them cheaper elsewhere?

Are your backups all on 1.44MB floppy disks then?

Should be fine, it's only external ones with USB Hub facilities that PS4 doesn't like.

Are these 9.5mm or 12mm internally?

No they are not, i own several Segate and Western Digital drives,
And every single Seagate drive i own are at 80% health after just one year of use, all Western Digital drives,
i have shows 100% health after 4 years of use in my NAS.

Seagate used to be great back in the days, but not nowadays, at least for me.
I wont be buying any more Seagate drives, thats for sure.
