I'd sooner buy this since it contains an SATA drive and is £10 less:

The expansion was £71.99 on Monday so <£90 is the new normal for this capacity.

Had two earlier this year, one died on me for no reason. My two 4TB WD Drives are still going strong two years on.

Missing one character. Fixed, thanks.


What would be the difference between what you and OP and the linked below

Is it 3.5 vs 2.5? I'm thinking of getting one for a home back up media server all that jazz sort of hard drive.
Possibly still ok for those who missed the £72 deal

Yes, a larger 3.5" drive that isn't bus powered so it needs the AC adaptor. The 3.5" drives can be 20-30% bit faster because they use larger platters and greater platter density = greater transfer speeds. Nothing significant and not at all important for serving up media, etc which requires a fraction of their read speeds.

I have around 30*4-5TB Seagate Backup Plus drives and 10*WD 4TB My Passport. None of them have died or developed bad sectors. Previously, the only portable HDDs I've had fail were older WD models but it didn't stop me buying more.

Anecdotes are worthless.
