Transcend don't make hard drives, so its most likely a Seagate spinner inside them, but they have also had WD Blues inside. Basically its whatever Transcend could source cheaply, so there no way to know what hard drive iit is internally in advance.

It's still an OK discount, I would personally change the price and unexpire the deal.

MrAdamAnderson

I dunno. £33.14 is still decent for these. I was about to buy at £38 thinking that was good.

foxhounder

£33.14 now... :/

Gone up to £30.66 now. Added it to my basket to check. Good price but views aren't the best if you're using it as a TV external drive.

userunkowen

I wouldn't as the read and write speed are terrible.

Universal_Fighter

I currently live in Mars. I can't get it!

Neverwoncomps

Can you use this on PS4 as an external?

https://chiacalculator.com/ This might help you answer that question I'm currently on ~14TiB of plots which has taken me about 3 weeks to get done I first started. In that time, the total netspace is roughly 8 times larger than it was, so it's doubling every week... I was lucky enough to get a block about a week ago when I had 9TiB and my time-to-win was 2 months I'm planning to pool my future plots from now on, I think, and I'll just run the original 150 plots as a single farmer to see if I get lucky again

Great price 🔥

Hi, can i connect it to an NVR that is just powered using 2amps adapter. I managed to run an ssd off its USB port directly. But then another one did not work.

mani5001

The growth is super quick, I’m on 10Tb and my estimated time to win is 3 months solo, last week it was on 6 weeks estimated. Too many people are joining the network so you would need to constantly keep expanding storage and reinvesting to keep up. Pools aren’t officially launching for another 2 days so can’t speak for that yet.

Really depends on your hardware compatibility. Do you have space to fit 20 drives, etc

Decent offer for the red version of this. Yes - not the price it once was, and will probably not go down back to that price. Credit to @idontflycathay for finding the black ver… Read more

I ordered this on monday, they delivered on tuesday, when i started to use it my files dissapeared twice so i reformatted, started loading files again to back up 2 tb Seagate expansion my son had dropped on the floor by carrying it by the cable, came back about forty minutes later to check on progress, and this hard drive sounded like a bag of coins. I lost 400gb of files which i have spent a few hours today recovering. ( I have the seagate recovery software which was offer some months ago) The luck of the draw perhaps, as i have a 4tb version which is working fine. It is probably down to the courier throwing it around and not handling with care. i will return it and reorder. But to all you guys buying and keeping this in storage test them now or soon, and why keep storage in storage thats all wrong. The only saving grace as this was shaking itself to pieces, i watched Manchester united getting a beating.

Ordered 2 and put in a mirrored storage pool, working great serving media.

Who needs 5tb portable storage.

tvaustin

Would this be any good for storing and playing ps4 games on a ps5

FireOnAWire

Yes (annoyed)

That was the one I was about to try next, thanks. I'd definitely be happy with 48c the ones I tried before were hitting 80-85c under sustained writes.

I have this Sabrent enclosure, which seems to stand up to plotting Chia non-stop with a 1TB NVME SSD without overheating. Don't get me wrong, it gets toasty warm (48°C on my thermal cam) but quite happily hits speeds of 1000MB/s on crystaldiskmark And overall, including the 1TB SSD, only cost me £110, so a small saving with the added flexibility of being able to easily move the drive into other devices or reuse the enclosure https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sabrent-Type-C-Tool-Free-Enclosure-EC-SNVE/dp/B08RVC6F9Y/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sabrent+nvme+enclosure&qid=1620722855&sprefix=sabrent+nvme&sr=8-3

Whoops, didn't notice it was NVMe. I'm back in my box now if one of you wouldn't mind closing the lid for me - thank you!

sheffield788

That's why I have not tried from the start. If a brand is decent and established in making such devices, I'm sure 90%+ of the time they will do a better job than me. I know there are exceptions, but I rather wait for a sale and buy the ready made product. OK with normal HD, but with ultra fast SSD, I don't think I will save much if I make it myself and I will probably fail anyway.

James123

It's annoying, I tried a few cheap M.2 NVMe enclosures (SSK, Orico, UGreen) with a couple of different M.2 drives (2TB WD SN750, Sabrent Rocket 2TB) and they've all overheated and/or disconnected while doing 1TB+ transfers over USB 3 Gen 2 speeds. If I was buying something now it would be a complete one like this because presumably WD has actually ensured their enclosure is fit for purpose.
