This is a USB powered portable drive. I picked one up yesterday. It's about the same size as the WD my passport.

Another confirmation here that the 4TB drive is the portable version. The item specifics list it as "Portable External HDD" but then again, they also state it's red whereas the one I just picked up is black (which I'm very happy with) Great deal.

Voting cold due to misleading description from seller.

Considering how clearly the OP described this deal, in the context of a community rating deals, that is an unhelpful thing to do. The sellers poor description is not relevant. Next time please do us all a favour and just don't vote.

You meant Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Desktop Drive. Well, worth trying your luck but they also offer portable 4TB drive for £99, so..

Nope. It's a 4tb usb powered portable drive. No external power supply required. Change the dropdown on the link to 4tb...

It is misleading but the pic clearly shows a passport sized drive when you select the 4tb and I picked up a passport sized drive. Plus the description states usb powered.
Anyone know can i use this on a ps4?

As an external drive yes. As an internal replacement (removing it from the enclosure) no, as it's too tall.
Pics definitely doesn't match description

Defo looks like desktop and not a portable drive. Voting cold due to misleading description from seller.

Set-up is straightforward: simply connect a single USB cable and you are ready to go. The drive is powered from the USB cable, so there is no need for an external power supply."

This does not match the photos so would not trust this at all.

There are pics of both types of drive. I believe the 2tb to be a desktop drive.
Whether portable or wall powered, the price is still brilliant

Thanks, heat added!
I’ve just picked up 2 of these and can also confirm that they are the usb powered ones in Black

No, not really.
This is pretty much average price for 4TB 3.5".
For portable it would be pretty good, but hard to say what you'll get as description is completely missleading

33279331-YNHnU.jpg
will try it, hope it'll also be the 2.5" version.
otherwise no big deal, will return immediately for refund.

and yes, description is incorrect along with photos, but that's how you get best misprices, therefore best deals.
Argos are easy for returns, so nothing to lose really.

Is this any good for an Xbox one s? Looking for more storage.

Is this any good for an Xbox one s? Looking for more storage.


Perfect
Hmm "portable", maybe. If you care about the data on the drive I wouldn't move it too much. Seen many many seagate portable drives die over the years along with the users data.
Better for some storage that sits by the tv/desktop and very rarely moves IMO.
Likely slow as Christmas too.
Note: still voted hot as this is a good price for this amount of storage. Just gotta keep in mind you can't treat it like a huge pen stick.

Yes, good deal if 2.5; will confirm after collection today.

This is the drive I received: SEAGATE Expansion Portable Hard Drive - 4 TB, Black ( 2.5" ) 1TEAPF-500
There is an USB 3.0 (Blue) cable included.
There is no additional power connection; just USB.

Strange as the 2.5 is a brand new for 2018 model, only just listed in the Argos store, widely in stock, and discounted to boot!

argos.co.uk/pro…180

Could be an eBay listing error or overstock I guess...?
If it's this one (not sure.. Amazon say the portable 2.5 is 2018 model)


Then the drive is likely : ST4000LM016

Pretty bad reviews lot's of failures, but might be a different model. Perhaps a buyer can fill us in?
