WOW!!, what next?, an 8TB Portable Hard Drive?, hehehehe. It's portable, it's from a decent brand, a very decent capacity, and a decent price for what you get too ... What's not to like about it?, lol. :-) If I didn't have 2 4TB Portable Hard Drive's I haven't even touched yet + a third 4TB Portable Hard Drive I've only just gone half way through with, etc, I'd be all over this one. :-) I hope that this Deal last's for the few Day's or so? (while I digest my 'options', etc ... ) Good Deal anyway.

It is always a good idea to have a good back up plan in place. This can save you so much time and headaches. The conventional wisdom by tech experts on backups is known as the 3-2-1 method. Basically you want: 3 copies of any data you don't want to lose 2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example) 1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster.

Step 1: purchase from store Step 2: return to store for a refund and wait for them to refund to your payment card Step 3: when they ask you for the item, say no, give them an incredulous look and storm out with a strong air of arrogance Step 4: enjoy your free hard drive Step 5: if someone knocks at your door, don't answer. It's probably the police

And in all probability its likely to be one of its archive drives which are slower than you think. Nevertheless for storage of files that don't matter if they are lost its cheap for 8tb. Dont use it to store things you will miss when the drive fails. Price wise its a good deal. But as its Seagate I cant vote hot.

That's good to know cheers mate. Amazon couldn't sort so I'll need to get hold of Seagate. Thanks.

I got a code on a card in mine

thewrecker7477

That would be your xbox settings. Have you got it set to turn off the external storage when the console powers off? I don't get why you have to unplug and plug back in :/

Felicitous

I'm having a problem with mine, anytime the console is turned off the device disconnects an has to be unplugged and replugged each time I turn the console on, which is frustrating as I was not expecting plug and play to be the step for literally every session I have to use it, it also means I have to keep the console on all the time while downloading. does anyone know of a fix to this?

Just to note - I've also had hard drives stolen from these Xbox drives through Amazon twice to me - and a third time someone looked in another package. The seal appeared intact and in the second box's case the amazon outside wrapping looked good (the first box I 'knew' something was wrong with it but I just couldn't put my finger on it at the time (it had cellophane over the amazon wrapping). You obviously cannot tell the contents of the box until you open it, and I'm not particularly happy opening my stuff in front of strangers. Buying from Argos now - they didn't seem to care much frankly. Lots of words whilst saying nothing.

RowanDDR

Thanks, that's useful to know. No cellophane on either of the dud ones I received. 3rd one coming later today... UPDATE: At last.. I seem to have received a legit item today! It is shrinkwrapped.. and the hard drive seems heavy - I can see through the ventilation grill that it is not an empty shell this time.. now to plug in and test to see if its a real 8TB hard drive.....

grumpyone

All Seagate retail boxes are factory cellophane wrapped with the silver security sticker underneath - if anyone receives a Seagate product with the cellophane wrapping missing or even not completely intact - then that is a bad sign !

thewrecker7477

Can't believe that another has no drive inside. What in the world are Amazon up to :/ (mad)

RowanDDR

The replacement drive is exactly the same!!! Light as a feather, and suspicious marks indicating that it has been opened... Amazon have now refunded me and told me to wait 48 hours before re-ordering the product... think I'll look elsewhere, this is getting redic.

A disc that fails after six uses is a valid reason for voting cold. I am fully aware about moving parts so back up in triplicate. They could improve packaging as its all a bit on the rigid side if dropped.

Hey guys if you want to stop a HDD fail best is not to move it while it is on. Because the drive inside HDD is spinning, and can break the laser head. If you think you want to jog and use a drive then get SSD which has no moving parts.

2 different hard drives in the same computer doesn't fulfil the 2 different mediums criteria. While 2 different drives could potentially mean one solid state and one magnetic if they're in the same machine they're likely both susceptible to fail with a common cause. Crypto-virus is one that springs to mind. In old days before terabytes of storage in a home environment it used to be easy to suggest people burn backups to DVD and use USB drives. It's trickier now. For example, say someone has bought this as a primary storage drive. They've been shooting a lot of 4k for YouTube and their laptop doesn't have the space for it. How would a backup plan look for this? Buy 2 and hope that the one you use as primary dies first because of all the thrashing as it works and the second (presumably from the same batch) lasts long enough for you to be able to order a replacement for the first and copy everything across? Also, what happens if you plug in the backup drive and it gets infected with the same virus that rendered the first useless without you realising? What's the alternative? Use cloud storage?

For directly recording to this might not be suitable, assuming there's a seagate barracuda non-pro inside, its rated power on hours are 2400 per year whilst seagate's dedicated nas hdd is rated for 8760. For backing up recordings however, if you're doing it in bulk occasionally it will be fine.

I got one one Thursday. I personally think it’s very slow and quite noisy. I changed from a WD Passport 4TB to this and overall the WD is way faster. I have it connected to the XBOX One X.

This is deeply in the "terrifying” territory of local storage. Fill this bad person up with music, videos, photos etc. All very well so far. Then imagine what would happen if the drive failed. I've had that happen to me once before with just (just (fierce) ) a 1tb drive and it was terrible. I even went as far as getting the failed drive controller card cloned, at a cost greater than the price of the drive, and it still didn't work. So the thought of this amount of data getting lost is unthinkable.

I think there is some difference between NAS and other hard drives. See the first article I could find. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/nascompares.com/2017/09/08/what-is-the-difference-between-nas-hard-drives-and-standard-hard-drives-is-it-all-a-big-con/amp/ From my own server I always notice that the standard desktop drives are more noisy and run hotter than than the NAS drives I have in there. Doesn't mean they will definitely die before the NAS drives but it does make it more likely in my opinion.

WD only released its hybrid drives in 2013 so only 5 years ago. But I get your point. The first gen Momentus XT drives did have a few issues and there were several firmware updates for it (which many users didn't do). So many early drives did have problems, but that is to be expected with early adopters. My 8 year old drive still works fine. Performance has moved on somewhat in that time.

Well then that's unfortunate. Although this is a consumer drive. Happy with mine. Won't lose any sleep if the games on it go kapoot. Easy enough to get back. You'll see differently once you learn the hard way.

So no SSD?

BigProfit4u

I already have a Seagate hybrid 1 TB drive with a Windows 8.1 OS on and I was also running an older 1TB SATA3 with another Windows 8.1 partition on which has started to wear out after 5 years use. I am planning on replacing the older one with this new Firecuda which should be quicker and quieter. :p

Izu

The price isn't bad for what it is, but SSHDs are inviting another point of failure into an important storage device for a pretty minor performance bump; a 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD doesn't come to much more than them rolled into one and the pure SSD is going to run a lot quicker. Though if you want to use this in a PS4 or whatever it's probably a decent enough bet.

If you value your data then you need to back up to 2 drives. The easiest to use will be a NAS unit like the WD my book duo which has 2 NAS (server) drives inside and can be configured easily to act as a 2 drive mirrored array to backup automatically - or you can just get two reliable hard drives used by servers solutions providers, like 2 HGST or toshiba drives and keep one to back up your data (if you want cheaper options then use server drives like WD reds, but any server drives would do. They cost more by you gain massively in reliability. The consumer Seagate and WD drives have high failure rates high enough to make them unsafe to use for irreplaceable data like photos. Most of my failed drives have got blown capacitors. That is what you get from cheap home consumer drives - cheap components which will fail and you have no cheap means of getting your data back. Once they go you are stuffed and no amount of trickery will help you.

deepu25

Any good recommendation please...thanks

bbfb123

It comes across as a good all rounder.

No it is not any good. If you want this for backup get something more reliable. This is a home user device with their most basic hard drive inside. Its fine if you don't mind losing whatever you have on it.
