So you’re not voting this hot because it’s £0.39p per TB over your rule of thumb.

What a stupid rule. Voted hot

Thanks - this looks like the lowest ever price per camelcamelcamel. Went for a couple to pop into my home server.

I've had problems with Seagate before, less problems with Western Digital. I've had a 4 TB drive Seagate drive fail me before and lost lots of data so just bear that in mind. Go with who you trust.
Great price here whether Seagate or other brand either way.

My 1tb Seagate drive is still working fine after 5 years. I use it as a storage drive on my PC.
Would prefer the firecuda as it has a small SSD on it. Wish they would make the firecuda with 16GB or even 32GB nand so you can store the operating system there.

Yes, but it's a 2.5" drive, so you can fit four of them in a tiny NAS...

*Update* Bah, they won't fit, the synology will only take 12.5mm thick drives, these are 15mm.

Oh no, not the ds416slim. It's shocking how synology think they can get away with flogging such woefully underpowered tat.
You can get 15mm drives to work but it's a Velcro job and not worth the hassle IMHO.

They have now hiked the price up to £81.63.

Naughty.
