Would it be possible to plug this into a router and make it network-able or is that not possible? Currently have a laptop so ideally don't want to be plugged into that. Would love to stream, access files on the harddrive whilist in the house


Splitting files over two different drives is not a bad thing and certainly not a mistake.


It can't be done. As I've said previously, when you plug the hard drive into either console, the console formats the whole drive


You should be able to partition the hard rive into 2 and use one for each system. Google will show you how to do it if your unsure


Hmm wondering if the £8 extra for data recovery is worth it... Probably not

Yes I did a bit of digging around and it seems the PS4 does not support this model because it is a hub, and since a previous update the PS4 does not support any HDD that is a hub. The Xbox One however supports it just fine.


Sounds like he’s saying that this model includes a build USB hub that isn’t compatible with the PS4, and you can only use an external HDD model without a built in USB hub.


See if you can get your head round this https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/5w7yk8/450_beta_psa_you_cannot_use_an_external_hard/


Doesn't work as storage on the ps4

How quiet are these drives?


Voted hot. Is the USB board soldered to the drive, and how hard are these cases to crack open? Cheers.


Glad I didn't bother with recertified yesterday, think getting a new drive is worth the extra £10.

Sneaky buggers. Did it on incognito : )


It's still available.. one per customer it seems. Use a different browser and account. May work.


Just tried that but doesn't work? Has it ended? (I have just ordered ano one previously as it only gave you the 5 off one drive, so I thought I'd do two separate orders but the second order isn't applying the discount?)


Top deal, just what I needed. Thanks!


Has someone used this generation of drives under Linux? The instructions I found are contradictory and outdated. Thanks.

Yodelised. Think I'll use that next time I'm totally fked. XD


I often wonder if the MOD, before deploying new hardware, to assess if the hardware e.g. a tank, is ready for deployment, get yodel to transport it somewhere. If it still works after that they are good to go...


I'd say, is it YODEL and HERMES proof?


My question is the same as above. No good having such a tough case if you’ll have to replace the hard drive every week (looking at you... SEAGATE!)


Never mind the casing, what make is the hard drive?

What review sites are we all using to point out their poor behaviour?


Had to email them and got no reply, however by mentioning the order ref nr, the funds returned in to my account!


Maybe one of you kind bas***** can send a link for the kind reviews


Finally got my ticket actioned. Got the same kind of response as other people. Not honouring the price, and because I'm not a business user with an account manager no one contacted me about it. Will be leaving appropriate reviews where possible.


My order was cancelled too no email, so I phoned their 0844 number to ask about it, no explination but it did cost me £5 .

Just like regular Seagate drives then. (annoyed)


Be aware that people have torn the Backup Plus drives apart, and found they have Seagate Archive brand drives inside. They're much slower than traditional drives, and are designed to archive data while theoretically keeping it safer for longer than other drives. They aren't meant to write and read data all the time. If you need something to jam all your photos and videos on this'll do nicely. If you try to use it as a game drive or for a NAS, it's gonna be very slow and get very hot and probably conk out in a year or two.

Don't think you can. It's 15mm and most laptops don't support that.

Brought it as my XO only had 1tb drive. Pain in back side deciding on deleting games. So arrived quickly and came with loads of plug adaptors. Format for my XO was quick and iv transferred XO games into that, 1tb for the 360 games and XO internal for my top 5 games...as that's all it holds till more updates or DLC so soon to be top 4. Have gamepass so I'm sure to be using my 200mb connection to fill it up quick. I know the limitations of the drive and dont care what it is as its holding my games and not a PC backup drive. Piece


That's why you have an offline/off site source. If your house burnt down having a backup pm another hard drive wouldn't have helped either. Horrible thing to happen & very sympathetic. Happened to me but I'd uploaded all of them to Flickr & Onedrive too. Can't be too careful with such things, equally never backup a hard drive using another hard drive from same manufacturer, batch & bought at the same time as you've found out they may fail together as they were subject to same enviromental factors between factory & you.


I've got a 10TB PMR drive it's a helium HGST 7200RPM model

For anyone after one for PS4 (or at all now since this has expired), Amazon have one without the USB hub for £120 right now. That will work fine on PS4.


How do you order this? Unavailable for collection...


THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH THE PS4. After getting it last week plugging it in and giving Sony a call I had to take it back for a refund and still waiting for the money. I paid online as I had a voucher and used PayPal. I got the Seagate 6tb hard drive in Amazon's black Friday deal for 89.99 that works with the ps4. Look for one without built in USB hubs! If the USB hub that causes the problem.


It doesn't work with the PS4. Apparently the PS4 requires USB storage to be connected directly, not via a hub. (These drives contain an internal USB hub.)
