Might as well pay a bit more and get a portable one
The 4tb wd my passport is currently 99.99 on Currys, but 10% TopCashback brings it to the same price as this model, without the need for a power supply etc.
Just paid 70 for 2tb... fk u amazon

Why, if you do not need portability?

Because having more cables lying around than necessary isn't a great thing

Not everybody needs/wants portable. Heat added, good price.

I think my 500gb ps4 would love this. I'm sure my ps5 will love it 2 when I get it with 250gb downloads when it comes out lol
I would go for it but I feel a Seagate drive is just waiting to break and lose my stuff. Are these any good?

You will lose stuff if you only keep a single copy. Always have another backup somewhere else. You can't have enough backups.

I can’t comment on Seagate personally, but I know many people who have used with no issue.

I have a desktop HD that backs up my Mac on a daily basis, but I also have a portable HD that I use to back my Mac up that I keep at work (bring home once a week obviously) just in case anything were ever to happen at home. Can never be too careful.
Superb deal
Currys now have this at the same as Amazon so Topcashback makes this just under 81

I've not had any problems with the one I've had for the best part of a year but I'd never only rely on one backup of anything remotely important. Even if a drive had a one in a million failure rate that one person in a million would still lose their data unless they had additional backups.
Picked up one of these just before christmas for £98 so a good saving. This is my second of these drives and my sixth Seagate to store .mkv's and so far no problems. The only thing I would point out is these have 5900 rpm drives inside and not the 7200's that my 4 previous 2TB Expansion drives have. As such the write speeds are a little bit slower Im get around a peak of 160 MB/s from a ssd pc via usb 3.0.

I dont back my drives up because my film collection is not critical, but in my experience from work all brands of drives fail. The likelihood of failure is massively increased if they are external drives from what I have found. I believe this is due to thermal issues killing them prematurely non of these enclosures have fans and they do get hot other extended use. If the drive doesn't spin down when not in use I would recommend disconnecting it. Most modern OS's should put the drive into sleep when not in use but for example my TV doesn't.

In terms of back ups if its important use the 3-2-1 approach its the safest way, you can never had to much reduncy - my job depends on it!.
Noticed whilst looking at this the 6tb backup plus £124.99. Don't need one but tempted decisions decisions. Voted hot thank you.
It does go lower than this. I got mine for £57.49 in Feb of this year in an amazon flash deal. Just felt like rubbing that in i suppose

I've got a 2tb one and had no issues on my Xbox 1
PlayStation only puts download games etc on the external HDD, game saves are kept on the internal drive but you should have cloud back up enabled for saves anyway. Have one of these on my Pro, and a chunky 4TB portable from WD on my Xbox One X and I'm happy with both.

This should work faster than the internal drive on either system

Have Topcashback changed their rate for Currys because I can't find anything near that on their site?
