I think this is a really good deal on the Seagate FireCuda 2 TB 3.5 inch Internal SSHD. Unfortunately it is the larger 3.5" version so not an option for consoles and laptops like the 2.5" version of the same drive but still a great way to upgrade a desktop giving much more capacity than a SSD but comparable performance with data it has cached.

A good middle ground between HDD and SSD.

Simply add the warehouse version to basket, at £82.60 and go to checkout and it should have the 20% off making it £66.08 (before any delivery charges).

Listed as Used - Very Good, missing manual.

I still haven't forgiven Seagate for the 3x3TB drives I had to replace just out of warranty

can be used for xbox one and ps4 just need placed in a caddy as they support external drives

I had a 4TB Black from Amazon warehouse arrive today, paid £129.55. Came rattling around in the box, opened the hdd box and in there was a tatty 4TB red. They are a joke.

Careful ! you'll get banned from this site for saying anything bad about Amazon warehouse. Their 2nd hand junk is regarded as better than new throughout this forum.

Ive always been lucky with there warehouse deals so far i saved alot building my pc some off the items seemed brand new and you always get 30 days to return if not happy but yeah if i recieved the wrong irem i would be annoyed too

EDIT: I got it now!..

Not voting but I've been unlucky with warehouse deals - a monitor with a bad pixel that started blurring, a router which never worked. But sure, what could go wrong with a used Seagate hard drive

must be mad buying used hard drive... you have to think why it was returned in the first place. most likely someone has just returned their old junk for a new replacement. Same thing happens with the graphics cards. Unless its "like new - factory sealed" I would stay clear.

Yes, good point forgot to mention that, just wanted to make it clear they won't work as Internals due to the size. Not sure how much of the SSHD caching benefit is maintained using them as an external? But as both Xbox One and PS4 have USB3 it wouldn't be bad I would think...

"like new - factory sealed"

Spot on there mate.........always applied these rules to me women

Each to their own, but I think people are far too fast to judge and instantly dismiss some types of used component like hard drive without good reason. Yes, that could happen in a worst case but could just as likely be a return for any other innocent reason like they found it cheaper elsewhere so returned the Amazon one etc.

No real danger in any event as Amazon will refund anything faulty and no data loss so long as your backed up....

I agree its worth a punt for most items, but to me hard disk is to risky... I'd rather pay the extra for piece of mind and not have to worry about data loss/corruption, but yes each to their own

I think you have to plug into the mains as well as USB?

Ordered.
Ideal for my photo collection. Especially my lightroom catalogue. Better than the old WD green for access speeds I currently use.

Oh and it will back up to an external 3TB USB 3.0 Seagate drive and also to a 8TB Netgear NAS.

gutted the 2tb versions seem to be oos.

Good deal

Not sure why it would be too risky. Obviously as a system drive yes, but as a Steam drive does it really matter?

What warranty does their used stuff carry? Is it manufacturer 1 year? Or Amazon 1 year?

So what happened next? Did you test it? Or did you return it?

I work for a company who uses amazon to sell products and they have a policy that if you have more than a certain amount of returned items in a month you are banned from selling that item with them for a set period of time i think this helps with stopping sellers selling crap. I think these are decent hard drives they only came out last year and have a 5 year warranty from new.

It will work the same even as an external, in fact it will probably work better as it wouldn't be caching system data, they do have limited use though for gaming as it only has 8GB of flash memory, so for in game loads your see improvements after a couple of loads.

I have a 2.5" in my Pro, probably wouldn't have bought Seagate though if it wasn't for the 5 year warranty, although their larger capacity drives are more reliable these days.

Edited by: "4Real2016" 5th May

Do these ones have 5yr warranty? Or is that new purchases only?

None applicable here though as it's low stock anyway.

Seems like my good luck with warehouse deals just ran out i received the hdd just in a bag in a small box i then connected it to my pc the first thing i noticed was how load it was then it asked me for a password for it wtf and with no pw i am unable to boot bios or Windows so i cant even try and format it. if i connect it after windows has booted it wont detect the drive. I dont know if to laugh or cry. I cant belive this drive was even tested before being posted. So unless anyone knows what the password is it will be going back
