Junkiest is a bit strong, some people prefer to get the same brand, twice the storage and none of the paint job for £10+ less. However, some people do want the punkiest version of everything... And that'll sure as hell cost you.

I have a Seagate portable. they are to fragile. Probably be okay if it was fitted in a slot the internal drives. Mine rarely moves and it still somehow failed. Do not own wd but heard good things about them which will be my next purchase, if this was WD I'd buy it. Edit: I actually do own wd but they are all internal drives.

Cut a little bit of regular selotape over the third pin. No longer annoying. Alternatively use a USB3 docking station. I don't recommend using a molex-sata cable. I've had a drive fail due to the power being intermittent through one of those cheap things.

That video is from 2018 and is talking about the PWDIS feature added to SATA v3.3 in 2016. Shouldn't be a problem with a supply made since then. https://www.tomshardware.com/uk/news/hdd-sata-power-disable-feature,36146.html If you are worried your power supply is older than 2016 then you could buy the MyBook Elements 8TB which doesn't have a EZ model code and thus does not have PWDIS but there are air and helium versions that makes it a tricky decision. MyBook 8 TB WD80EZAZ-11TDBA0 helium My Book Elements 8 TB WD80EMAZ-00M9AA0 air filled runs hot My Book Elements 8 TB WD80EMAZ-00WJTA0 helium filled, runs cool but has extremely loud seek It's possible the EZ drive also has SED (hardware encryption) which if it does will be very beneficial in the future once it becomes the norm for everyone to be encrypting all their hard drives.

Gotta agree ..3.5 drives and portability do not mix. Unless you are using some sort of padded or tuffened case. I bought and then dropped a 3.5 drive (when installing) quickest £90 I ever spent/wasted. 2.5 spinning drives are generally tougher, as they are assumed to go into laptops and be swung about a bit.

joshbaboo

I actually bought this enclosure a couple of weeks ago, and have been very happy with it so far. My 3.5 inch drive no longer fit into my new build, so rather than get rid of a perfectly good wd black drive, figured I would get some extra mileage out of it, while I save up for a couple of 2tb m.2. Some pros and cons below: Pros: 1. This enclosure does block some of annoying hdd sounds, especially compared to standard external drive docks. 2. Usb-c was a nice inclusion since most motherboards now have a usb-c port on the back as standard, and mine wasn't doing anything. Does mean that it's something that I can plug directly into my laptop should I ever need to. 3. Usb 3.1 is "relatively" fast. 4. Looks nice for what it is, it's no Lacie drive enclosure, but it's inoffensive to the eyes. Cons: 1. It's big, it's is not something I would call portable, and I wouldn't recommend using a mechanical drive as a portable drive anyway. 2. I would also not recommend keeping on your desk, as it is quite audible from even from 4 ft away. Surprising how much cases manage to dampen drive sounds. 3. The drive will occasionally fall asleep if it's not been in use for a little while. Could be a windows power management setting I need to toggle somewhere, not looked yet. So what I would use this for and what I wouldn't - I wouldn't recommend using this a game drive or having applications installed on it, it's just not all that fast. As a storage drive, for documents, pictures, movies, other "legally" downloaded content etc. it's ideal. Also Ugreen is a quite a reputable manufacturer of stuff, their cables tend to be built to a good spec and aren't expensive.

dkj255

It seems to be a wierd fit: USB-C is mostly found on laptops and phones, but I don't imagine many people wanting something this bulky on one of those? As an external drive for a desktop it makes more sense, but unless you already have a spare drive ready to go in it - or need some ridiculously large capacity - you'd find it far cheaper (with a longer warranty to boot) just buying a 2.5" external drive off-the-shelf than buying this and then a drive to fit it.

Robdaraff

Yeah 2.5 are backward compatible with every 3.5 interface I've come across... But that extra wall wart would annoy me. :/

Akira_Cat

This supports both 2.5 and 3.5.

For that price you will only get no-name drives or fakes drives on e-bay :) its a very good price for for 1tb for a brand I at least have heard of. Information on Intenso: http://computeruniverse.discount/computeruniverse-product-reviews/review-intenso-top-ssd-256gb-381244

Brutes

Which other similar SATA2.5" did you find at this price? if you don't mind telling me please. :)

fiqqer

This is just a cheap generic Sata drive, almost the same as any other dramless drive. its nothing special even for the price. The only thing high speed about it is if you compare it to an HDD. Listed cheaper elsewhere even when you add delivery tekshop247

plewis00

I still don't understand the issue, this won't saturate the USB 3.0 bus anyway let alone Thunderbolt 3 so either interface will give the same results - there is no benefit in Thunderbolt unless it's a particularly quick drive, like an SSD, which this isn't.

My use case, would be using such drive as an external game files storage, where a thunderbolt 3 interface would enable fast loading time for games. Just my experience, should you want to use the drive to store photos and media, this is more than sufficient

Can anybody comment on the longevity of these? I was looking at it for a time machine backup of my iMac, maybe get a couple for backup of the backup. Then look at a Synology or QNAP NAS.

dopeman

@Robdaraff ah yeah sorry. Missed that

Robdaraff

Yeah, I said in my original comment that this will beat an ssd on price.

dopeman

@Robdaraff apart from the fact they're extremely expensive at this capacity. HDDs will always be cheaper because they're easier to manufacture

Robdaraff

I can't help thinking that you'd be better off with an ssd nowadays. Not really for the speed or size, and this will certainly beat it on price, but for that solid state shockproof reliability. Itll be lighter too, generally a good thing. Hdds dont like being dropped when spinning...

malhal

Yes it can, inside is a 2 TB Samsung SpinPoint M9T probably the best 2.5" drive ever made. Don't go bigger, its a Seagate disk that's terribly slow and too thick to go in the PS4. But you might prefer to use a SSD instead though for much faster load times, 512GB would do for about 6 games.

LordMetro

I have the default WD firmware spin down settings on Ubuntu on my nuc - I believe it's 15 mins. Just have two drives connected, latest WD 5tb and older 2016 WD 4tb. The older one is much more quieter. This newer model is much noisier. Oh and don't forget these WD drives are SMR shingled as well. The strange thing is when it's in use - the spinning is much quieter on the newer drive. It's probably been bashed around in the Amazon depot but there isn't any drive errors showing yet for the past year on it. I just take it that these run louder probably due to more platters. Now that you mention it, I'll probably just make a script to unmount these at night and remount during the day. :)

Seagate ones are better and not soldered to board like western digital drives so if in any doubt don't buy as it will more likely soldered

I wouldn't say £21 for the extra 1TB is good value by any stretch. I'd stick at £75 for the 4TB which IS good value IMHO.

The 4TB model goes between £67-£75 on sale This is a pretty good price
