Same price at Argos too - argos.co.uk/pro…672?cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59158|cid:200223050|agid:12488287010|tid:pla-270296571058|crid:66128552210|nw:g|rnd:11009528684690085175|dvc:c|adp:1o2&gclid=CLjhi7yWy9ACFRAz0wodacsL-Q

Good deal for a portable

Amazon have price matched too (though temporarily out of stock).

Nice. I had no idea they had made these up to 4gig now. Wonder if they'll fit into a ps4

Does anyone know or has had experience of how good the "Seagate recovery service" is?

Really need a new glut of storage space but am not keen on anything that doesnt have some sort of redundancy\recovery ability.

heat added btw

Would this be ok for an Xbox one or am I completely "barking up the wrong tree"?

Waiting for 5 TB to hit this price.

have been tracking the price of this 99.99 is the usual price on Amazon from quite a while, though it keeps on fluctuating.
But the 2TB @44.95 was a very good deal on Argos, so dropped the plan of getting this one and had bought two of those.

It is no longer £45 at Argos now it is up to £65. I was looking for one but was just a Black Friday offer that went OOS almost instantly.

From what I can see online, the 4TB drives are too big for the PS4. 2TB is probably your best option.

If 4gig impresses you, wait till you see the 10TB IronWolf. 2,500 times the capacity.

if you only have a 500mb xbox one, you will need one of these based on the amount of storage games need incl DLC add ons....good price!

Right = 2 x 2tb ST2000LM003 9mm shucked from Expansion Portable (PMR)

​Not sure what I'm looking at, what "shucked" means or (SMR) but you seem to know what you're talking about haha! Will this fit inside a PS4 if I crack it open?

nope its 15mm high
ps4 is 9mm
the 2tb expansion drive will fit

Not going to vote either way but I bought the 2TB version from amazing 5 weeks ago and already died. The disk failed. Luckly, they gave me a refund but also 6 weeks ago my Seagate NAS died. I just dont seem to have much luck with Seagate

the 2tb's come with samsung made drives (Samsung M9T)
yes i know seagate own them but the Samsung Division Made the drives

I have had 7 2TB M9T's my oldest one is 2013 and they are all fine
you got unlucky most prob badly handled at some point

​Hope it doesn't happen to any of my drives, i have had a 1tb portable toshiba that has lasted a good few years (between 2-3 years) and it is still going strong, i also have this hard drive (got it for the same price a few months ago) and it's been sound as a pound up to now, but I have heard Seagate hard drives just die on lots of people, you'd think in 2016-2017 they would be more reliable

I got a couple of the 2tb M9T ones a couple of years ago and removed them from their caddies and they are still going strong.

I have a 2gb drive reserved at Argos Crayford if anyone wants it. £44.99

The only guarantee on this is that it's guaranteed to fail.

Depends how many games you have.
I've just filled my extra 1TB drive, and that's with 77 games installed.
Just picked up the 2TB one that was down to £44.99 though, so I should be good to go for a while yet.
I'd say 4TB is a bit excessive.

Real pity that this doesn't fit in a PS4 .. was actually looking for a 4tb drive to stick in there - anyone know of other 4tb drives that work?

They use Samsung Drives? Oddly enough I have a Samsung M3 and had that for about a year with zero fault. Im sure I just had a bad one. Tbh, the Seagate hadn't been great since the first day I had it. Always seemed slower than what it should be when transferring on Usb 3.

Yeah I have just had bad experiences with Seagate in general over the years. Oddly this drive didnt seem that great when I first bought it and with it dying, kind of makes sense. Amazon's customer support was superb so I got a replacement
