Standard Seagate desktop disk inside, not a weird direct USB connection.



Of course theoretically this will give you a drive with no warranty unless you're very good at taking it apart and putting it back together. Realistically you could probably still return it to ebuyer if it fails but don't quote me on that.

A WD Blue 4TB is £92 at amazon with 2yr warranty just for reference.

I have this drive, I paid £100 about 18 months ago, it is quiet and I get about 160 MB/s using USB 3.0.
just exchanged about £90 from topcashback in to amazon vouchers to buy one, then this deal gets posted for a lower price. Decisions decisions
Bear in mind if this fails within the warranty period Ebuyer will make a deduction from any refund as they reckon you've had some use out of it. For this reason I no longer use them.
What is the write speed and cache of the HDD inside?

Is that even legal?
I recommend paying a little more for a 2.5" drive
Would this work for a ps4?

I was considering the 2.5. Apart from being more efficient and taking up less space, why do you recommend it?
Yes, it will work on PS4 and Xbox as an external hard drive to store your games

Important to note that this is mains powered, not USB powered, which is fine if you have a spare socket, but if you don't then you should look at the portable version, which is currently £114.99 but it'll go down to £94.99 or less at some point (it regularly does and I bought mine earlier around Xmas for £94.99).

It is important to note that you shouldn't do this if the drive has ANY data on it. The usb to sata board does sector translation or some other black magic for back wards compatability so it will need formatting and the data WILL NOT be recognised in windows, Linux or OSX until the disk is reformatted.

That sounds so bizarre that it makes me want to do it just to see if it's really true.

Some swine made a new deal thread about my WD blues I noticed

Much much smaller, about 1/8th of the size and is powered over USB. I knew about the latter but had no idea how tiny these things were.
bear in mind that the cloud option will cease to exist sometime in 2018. Which is a pity. but as a stand alone HDD its great. but shame about the cloud option
Will this work as a Plex server?
