Was looking for my PC and console HDD update and found this amazing offer, with this game price for HDD going down to ~50 gbp. Only 1 game per customer, offer ends at 31 of december. Best and fast HDD to improve your PC and console storage, not sure keys will be valid for PC or for consoles also.

Key is for PC (Uplay), you'll get £25-30 on ebay for it if not wanted.

Would this drive be any good as a 'Steam library' type drive..?

i think this hdd is designed for gaming, plus you have long warranty on it (5 years)

Was about to buy one but the amount of 1 star reviews has put me off. Seems rather hit and miss.

how i told before, this drive has 5 years warranty, i am not telling that any hdd can have fault, but for my life i never got any issues with hdd or ssd, plus if you use this one for games not a big deal if you will loose your games, you can download them again

Very true. Still tempted.

They have a high failure rate. Check online in forums. Bought 3 and all failed. Got replaced no problem but a major inconvenience for a PS4 user.
The speed difference is not enough to warrant the failure rate. I'd go with a standard HDD instead.

The failure rate is no higher than other drives. The reviews for every drive out there have people complaining about failures. It's just the effect of people being more likely to post a review when something goes wrong.

You get one star reviews for all hard drives, hard drives have a fail rate across all manufactures, even different models from the same manufacture have different fail rates. Most fail quickly or are DOA.

I've had one of these in my Pro for over a year without a problem.

For anyone needing to know, this drive runs at 5400 RPM, and not 7200RPM like the older Seagate SSHD's.

If you need to upgrade the storage in your game console then this is great, plus you get some reduced load/boot times. Not massive differences, but still pretty nice.

I have one of the older Seagate SSHDs (Momentus XT 750GB 7200RPM) in my PS4 and I load into online matches in CoD/GTA V/FIFA quicker than most in the lobby.

While true about the speed difference I tend to think people put too much emphasis on it these says. With optimizations over the years aswell as in this case the small platter size compared to a full size HDD, the RPM of a drive isn't the measure of performance it once was. I've seen modern 5400RPM drives perform much better than old 7200RPM drives. The quality of the drive also matters. I took the original HDD out of a PS3 which is also a 5400RPM drive and its performance is truely abysmal when compared to a modern, high quality 5400RPM drive.

This deal is for both 2.5" and 3.5" the latter is 7200RPM.

Don't get all "steamed " up about this , but unless you use this drive as your boot drive, or you use one program repeatedly , you wont really benefit from the 8gb of ssd cache. It needs up to three boots to learn you loading patterns and if they change it starts again. It may still be a fine upgrade anyway as its a more modern optimized disc and if you sell on the ACO, then why not?

It actually will help for games after you've played it a few times. It only caches the most used files not the entirety of a commonly used program. So you can be regularly playing a few games and see a benefit. Is it the same as an SSD, no, but its a significant improvement over a purely mechanical drive.

this is the one my friend wants this one but he didnt wanna pay this kinda money sadly

Unfortunately I've never seen them go any lower than this price range. As mentioned above though he could buy this one now and sell the code for Assassins Creed.

I bought one last week to put in my PS4. I wasn't planning on that upgrade yet but this drive with that new a game included is actually one hell of a bargain.

I can see how the extra hassle would put someone off. However PC parts in general seem to be going up in price not down.
