Wow, PS4 upgrade?
Do we presume these will be compatible with the ps5? Got a 2 TB for my PS4 pro and that’s clearly not enough, wouldn’t mind an upgrade. Heat regardless though.

PS5 will only use SSDs for PS5 games (can’t remember if solid state or NVMe), so this wouldn’t work.

The Xbox Series X can still use HDDs for backwards compatibility, so maybe Sony will do the same.

Won't fit inside, this is 15mm high, as are all mechanical drives 3tb+
gone
still on:)

says depth 11.7mm which sounds like a 1 or 2tb to me but who knows. Seagate say the barracuda is 15.5mm and techradar say the drive in the 5tb external is a five platter 12.5mm one.

Great - been looking for 4TB's for my Xbox One - Now I can actually install more than 5 games! Heat.
Heat and ordered. I was looking at paying around £55 for 2TB so this is much better value. Like someone else managed to get it for around £65 thanks to work vouchers

Thanks. I think the £65 happened due to the gift card which they had left previously.
I bought this drive when it was previously discounted, it has good performance and works well with a Pi 4, no additional power needed for the drive.

Ah...well either way. Great deal for me. I'll use this for my One S until my Series X arrives

Haha true. I did order it last night lol
Does this work as an extension drive for the PS4?
More Seagate trash, don't store anything you care about on this

Thanks
PLEASE DON'T BUY SEAGATE. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. I had a drive fail on me after 2 years, 3tb of data. It's got a 35% failure rate. A quick check of YouTube shows that they still have the same issues. Anyone, and I mean anyone, who puts their trust in Seagate do not deserve to have any device. I have never, in over 15 years now of buying hard drives, had a drive fail other than Seagate. You've been warned.

I accidentally bought 2 backup drives 2 years ago. One is a PS4 external (it shuts off intermittently). Another on my pc is a secondary backup (2 backups). Again, sometimes that goes days without recognising.

seagate st3000dm001 . Worth a good read.

I think this is wrong on the listing. I bought a '4tb slim' backup plus from their eBay site that had same dimensions as shown here but turned out to be just the backup plus which is not slim. In fact after checking Seagate only make the slim version up to 2TB.

I Agree with him on this!
+1 to failure rate of Seagate drives. Mine has stopped working after a 2 years. All priceless memories lost. Same with WDs anyway. I had some cheap Korean iOmega for past 10 years and no issues. I'm really hesitant when it comes to HDDs. Might be good for games as you can always re-download and keep the saves in cloud but for pictures/videos you wanna backup, not the best option.

Any brand in particular you’d recommend?

I'd take a look at failure rates, I'd see who big companies use (Apple, Sony) - although sadly, Microsoft seem to be using Seagate for the next Xbox.

+ more over, I'd make sure you have atleast 1 full backup. Online storage is good too - you want remote storage incase of a local fire etc.

I have genuinely had NO issues with ANY other manufacturer, so I would just avoid Seagate entirely. I've used WD, Hitachi, Sandisk, Crucial, Samsung.

I dont think there will be any problem with the new xbox drives as they aren't mechanical.

I've contacted Seagate as they surely should be offering some kind of free repair / recovery service.

Why is that even worse? Fail rates of solid drives are very low with any manufacturer. The worst mechanical seagates were barracudas..

Just when an SSD fails that's generally it. I wouldn't trust an SSD because when they fail, they fail. Even a "failed" HDD can be saved somewhat - and I guess that's largely true for an SSD - but HDD I find much easier to work with.

Yea you might be right but there is far less chance of them failing.. And all important things will be on the cloud. If it fails, will get a replacement from MS. No biggie for me!

How would you recommend storing pictures etc if you don't trust hard drives?
Edited by: "southyorks" 1st Apr
I may be lucky but I've had 3/4 Seagate drives and I've never had a failure and they're used regularly. Just my two cents.

For those complaining about losing memories, it's a hard way to learn a lesson. I back up to two sources (local and cloud) for most things and for the really precious stuff (photos and vids) it's three (local, cloud and offsite)
