You can get the Seagate 8tb hub with 2x usb 3 ports for £155-£160, so maybe if this was down around that price but I'd pass at this price point.
I'd take this over a Seagate every time.

The Seagate uses SMR though (Shingled Magnetic Recording) so you'll get slow/inconsistent write performance as it fills up and you start replacing data.

This won't matter for everyone as it depends on your use case, but ignoring manufacturer bias, the WD is a better drive and may be worth the extra for some people.
What drive is in these?

In addition to the fact that the Seagate is an SMR drive, this WD drive comes with a 3 year warranty versus 2 year with the Seagate. Well worth the extra £20.
