Found 3rd Nov
I'm looking for a hard drive for my pc since I'm running out of space. I know it's a NAS drive but does anyone know if this would be good for every day use? Mainly gaming.
It seems like a good deal, Ebuyer also have the same price if you don't want to buy from Amazon. Link below;

Amazingly bad reviews on Amazon!

Using a Seagate for a NAS drive or data backup is like using a skunk to do your spring cleaning.

I use the WD equivalent (reds) for gaming drives. Though this is largely for quietness. They're not exactly high performance - I have a bunch of them in RAID to compensate for that and SSD's for games that take some loading.

If noise isn't a concern, you'd be much better off with a 7200RPM drive for gaming.

No issues here, been running four Seagate ST200DM001s for the last four years with no issues in Synology NAS

Just checking the run time on one of them

Thanks, yeah for me I want it for the games storage since they're huge these days. I have GTA V running from an SSD but all the other games are from standard HDD's.

That looks like a useful program, which one is it?

Thanks.
