Great price given the current drive shortage. The internal HDD is usually an IronWolf Pro or an EXOS. Limited to two per person. I hope this helps. (It was orginally in stock o… Read more

It's imagine both of those would be louder than a circular saw going that speed!

fuzed

yep, exos drive and 7200rpm - very good drive!

gutted missed this :(

Not if they are 8TB or more - none of those physically spin at 5400 RPM: https://blocksandfiles.com/2020/09/04/what-madness-is-this-wd-5400-rpm-8tb-drives-sound-like-faster-7200-rpm-spinners/

But the WD white labels usually are 5400rpm. Thats just my concern as they sit on my desk in my server.

In resolution an Xbox One X may be better but it is bottlenecked by a slower processor and hard drive. We're already seeing games that will not run on Xbox One consoles (only Series X|S) like Flight Simulator. So now I'm thinking about getting a Series S just to be able to play newer games. I do wish it had a disc drive, though.

Xcloud gaming is coming to Series consoles. You can then play most games without you xtra local storage. I’m using a few 2.5” drives for non S/X games at the moment.

ST3123

Literally any can BUT it won't run next gen games from it directly if that's what you mean. The functionality is blocked for any usb storage, even if you attach an external SSD. Personally, I think it sucks, I'd rather have the opportunity to install and run from usb storage even at the expense of load times, still at least the Xbox consoles aren't quite as restricted as ps5 in that regard...

zizouG

silly question time, is there any usb hard drive that can be added to the series s for expansion?

VivianDooshley

TLDR: So it's decided then, Series S for the kids and cash strapped poorly sighted people, Series X for 400fps obsessed dads or gamers who still stay with their parents. Majority agree this expansion card is nice tech, but needs to be £100/£150 before they bite. All in favour say aye.

Nice find, ordered (y)

Can these drives be opened up to use internally for a pc?

Could be a reason these larger capacity 2.5" drives fail all the time

ordered one of these as my old 2tb i used for 4 years now keeps stopping if moved abit (highfive)

malhal

Too thick for laptops and you should be looking for a SSD anyways. AO is using the image of the 2TB but look at the pic on 4TB box, it's around 50% thicker!

Chuggee

I would assume it is a 15mm internal drive, so going to be very difficult to use in most laptops.

trs_rst

I have 2TB version of the same. Outer casing is made of poor plastic. My Hard drive head got stuck (didnt drop anywhere) and currently struggling to recover the files. So would be careful with this model.

simonp99

Does it look like you could get the drive out? I know it's normally a demolition job but would be a good laptop upgrade

I use a WD Black 8TB on my PS5 so I don't see why this shouldn't work.

Gerald_Rex

I use a similar one (WD Black D10) on my PS5 and it works flawlessly. It also has a hub so i see no reason why this one won't work. Remember that both XBox and PlayStation didn't invent their USB interface so a external drive should act identical for both. Maybe you picked up a faulty one?

GenuWhine

Can the drive be removed and used in a PC?

nekoangel

I'm on the plex sonarr/radarr train but sometimes it's annoying and breaks lol Being on sonarr/plex has been amazing tbh. I wasn't even aware you could mount online storage as drives hahah. I do find drive a bit unintuitive but that's probabky my fault lol. So I'm looking at this drive in black as its in stock or there is a seagate with no USB slots but I think a faster internal 117 on amazon I think. I like the idea of the USB pass through. I think I'll pull the trigger soon. I'm tempted to plug it into my router though so it's always online.

I guess i am yes, i have a couple of these drives that i store hard to find TV shows on (im a big fan of the classic TV shows) so i do like to store "offline" copies of things, i also use a metadata cleaner so actor images and things like that show in PLEX/EMBY so having an offline section really helps with the speed of that but i also use sonarr/radarr that do the same thing (those are a whole other story but check them out they are brilliant). Mounting the cloud drive (google in my case) is pretty much the normal way to do this, if im sending data to google i just use their google drive uploader its fine for me. PS the black edition is a great drive!

yup...thats my experience too...cheapest option...5900rpm

mehdi.tlili

I always get Barracuda inside when I buy a seagate 8 Tb external

tubbyasstoo

I very much doubt someone really got an iron wolf inside one of these xbox externals in my experience they are ALL the slow SMR drives...they are fine for bulk storage, and single threaded access...but if you try to do more than one thing at a time on them, performance goes through the floor they are fine for £120...I've shucked two of them recently, got another two, and once they have been tested properly, will also be shucking these

mini76

Yep, grinding and ticking from mine too. Even on a piece of card don't help that.

mini76

Agree very noisy.
