Good deal op
All Seagate Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2019
Isn't this price just the going rate now for 4TB drives?
tl dr: The Backup Plus and Expansion are more or less the same, with the Backup Plus smaller dimensions, more warranty but a heftier price tag. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-seagate-expansion-and-Seagate-Backup-Plus-external-hard-drive
Does anyone know what’s the difference between this drive and the expansion model? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-Expansion-Portable-PlayStation-STEA4000400/dp/B017KE8OG0/
Very nice. Thanks
4tb! My goodness.
Cheaper elsewhere and according to the Camels it's been as low as £90 in the past, so this is £23 dearer than the lowest price and as such it's cold for me.
Probably a My Book, it will need a seperate PSU
Do you need an extra external power cable to run that?
Got a wd 10tb for 160 on amazon worth waiting
It’s currently £109.99 at Amazon and is often ~£105 (see at Keepa.com).
Thank you. Not sure who changed the pic to the 4TB one (confused) (flirt) , I had uploaded the 6TB pic when i posted the deal this morning, pic of which I had also saved on my phone so have uploaded the same pic again
Despite the pic showing 4tb, it is for the 6
expired now :/
Already posted buddy, I was gonna post it couple days ago too but saw the following post and was like leave it. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/seagate-8tb-xbox-game-drive-hub-12998-seagate-8tb-back-up-plus-desktop-hard-drive-12998-6-tb-8998-free-delivery-at-amazon-3233633
I would prefer the 4tb drive to be internal as the primary drive. And the 2tb drive, that i have now, & (which is practically full), would be my secondary drive for saves and captures. I have 176gb of free space, & every day i am told by my ps4 system notifications, that i have no space, & i have to delete more games to accommodate just an update etc.. This is why i need to upgrade to a bigger internal hdd. Sure i could use it as an external, but my preference would be to use it as an internal drive. Hence my question😁
£82.99, from a product the very same people were formally selling for only £81! (before they initially reduced it that is). And all within a window of only 4 Day's? = cheeky ... lol.
It's thickness is too thick to fit internally into the innerds of a PS4, or an XBox One, I believe?. But I've heard people commenting in the past that it'd fit in the innerds of a PS4 Pro though?. But I don't own any of the above 3 aforementioned, I'm unable to comment exclusively either way ... I'm curious, what's stopping you simply using it as external only though? (via it's supplied usb cable), or ... It's not even like it'd need it's own external power supply via a dedicated psu, or something, is it?. Or am I missing something in the reasoning behind your initial question?, thanx.
I'll ask again, can someone tell me if this drive fits internally a PS4, or One X please. As the Amazon answers are not helping much. I've had this in my basket for a while now, so it's good that it's back with Amazon😁
Everyone has their thoughts when it comes to HDD's ... Whether for, or against, it's a two-edged sword basically?. That's all I can say, lol.
Read my comment again and please highlight what misinformation I have relayed.
It's just frustrating when such misinformation is put out there for others to swallow up and regurgitate resulting in an endless feedback loop on thread after thread.
Whoa, calm thy titties dear. I think you'll find that was my point.
I shouldn't even bother to respond anymore. That's a lot of data to lose? Are you serious? Would you prefer 6x1TB drives or perhaps spread it over however many million floppy disks? This eggs in one basket vs many is unbelievably flawed. Don't you realise that you're increasing the changes of encountering a drive failure every time you a add another drive into the mix? If your data is important BACK IT UP! Splitting it over several smaller drives is not a sensible alternative. Now the second issue. Seagate reliability. There's absolutely nothing in it when it comes to Seagate vs WD, absolutely nothing. Gone are the days of problematic Seagate drives. Aren't we talking about something that happened 5-6 years ago? Ultimately you'll be absolutely fine with either manufacturer. Just backup your important data as any drive from any manufacturer can fail.
Quite noisy if I have to be honest. I have a 2TB version of this and it emits a rather annoying vibration noise. That said, in the year I've owned this drive it's performed flawlessly despite Seagate's reputation. I guess time will tell. What you must remember though is that 6TB of data is a lot to lose regardless of the brand of drive. As long as you have some sort of redundancy or backup, the decision should be based on whether the price justifies the 2year warranty. Furthermore, make sure you go through Quidco and claim your extra £5 cashback :-)
Wonder who is going to fess up to nabbing it at that loony low price! (lol)
Someone snagged it! Expired (y)
No. Laptops use 2.5" drives as they are smaller not 3.5" drives like the one posted.
This good for my Sony laptop?
Thanks buddy! Admittedly I've been scouring the internet for decent gaming pc deal's for a good week since my old rig blew up - Was bound to find something sooner or later!
It's just anecdotal, but I've had a bunch of cheap 4TB seagates in my NAS for nearly 5 years with heavy use. All fine, guaranteed to fail now I've mentioned of course.
There was a period of time when Seagate's did that apparently, but you might want to keep an eye on Backblase's quarterly hard drive reports. They don't seem to trace the drives individually, just bulk failures though. I tend to buy cheap-ish and can end up with any brand. (Fateful words) I haven't had a drive die in some years now. Keep backups (keep the 321 principle going plus if you haven't tested your back up, you don't have a backup) and keep redundancy (RAID). I bought a couple of 60G SSDs, following a tip here, for a tenner each for my OS and used them in RAID10. The rule for me for SSD/sdcards/eMMC is to buy far bigger than one needs to allow wear levelling.
Good price, about the same cost per Tb as the 10Tb WD posted yesterday, so around £16/Tb which is about as low as it gets.
Don't you just hate it when you come on HUKD looking for Just Eat codes and end up spending USD$95 on an external USB drive? (embarrassed) I feel like a cheapskate now trying to save £3 on take out (lol)
If you're paying with a Revolut card, it's usually cheaper to let them charge you in USD rather than use Amazon's conversion. At the current exchange rate (time of writing), it'll come to £90.42. If you have the USD$20 credit from the cancelled Western Digital drives a few weeks ago, even better.
Dont need to clear customs I am on holiday in September will bring it back
Going to visit family in September already so will bring it back (y)
Misleading post, if you add in the real delivery cost, import duty and VAT. Plus warranty / guarantee may not be given to UK customers, it is not worth it $90.50+$24.60 = $115.10
Also, there was no any transaction in my credit card account - no payment and no money return has gone through.
Yeah, you must make sure before you purchase an International item, that the card you use for payment is fee free or not
I have used Halifax clarity credit card and there is no fee for non-Sterling transactions.
There is no way of claiming international credit card charges. Should have used fee free card such as Curve
My order has been cancelled as well. At the same time I can see pending transaction of 89p from Amazon Spain in my credit card. Has someone else noted this?
Looked for this before a finished work at 9.30, woke up this morn and its gone ughhh
Sadly expired. :(
How does this compare with the IronWolf NAS drives?
Thats very cheap for 6tb of enterprise quality storage
For anyone curious, this is much, much faster than a WD Red 6TB (or equivalent Seagate 6TB NAS drive) but is significantly louder.
Thanks, just ordered.
No problem (y)
Sold! I will nab one. Thanks.
Yes mate, it'll be fine :)
Does this work with PS4’s? Just ran out of game storage space on mine.
Doenst work. Has it expired?
Can this be shucked?
Portable, 2.5 inch one :)
Is this a laptop size or Desktop size hdd
10 TB was the cracking deal (highfive)
Waiting for my £87 10Tb drive to despatch from the Amazon.com. :D Mains powered USB drives are usually for 3.5" hard discs in the external enclosure, which are usually higher capacity and remove the need for USB power from the host device because often they cannot supply the power needed. Smaller sized hard disks (physical size) used in laptops etc have a smaller capacity limit which maxes out at a premium price, They do not usually need an external power source but are limited in maximum storage size, hence the continued abundance of mains powered USB 3.5" desktop USB drives especially those of larger storage size.
Didn't even think they made mains powered HD anymore!
Serious question what would be the advantage to a mains powered 4tb drive when you could buy a much smaller usb powered 4tb drive for around the same price or even much cheaper as weve seen recently? I hated buying a 8tb mains powered drive recently but couldnt find a portable version in the same capacity for a similar price.
I'll never get tired of people comparing the 2.5 to 3.5 prices or mistaking one for the other etc (shock) (annoyed)
I'm loving this price OP. :-) Go and 'wreck' me some HDD's, huh?, hehehehehehe. :-D
"£90 for 6TB Seagate here, or slightly more for 8." That is a 3.5" HDD, whereas the comment you formally answered upon was for the 2.5" HDD instead, etc?. :-)
Based on 2 year warranty I suspect their cheaper variants rather than say a white label ironwolf. Looking online Seagate's backup drives (5TB) typically have 5400 RPM 128MB cache Barracuda drives in. EDIT: £90 for 6TB Seagate here, or slightly more for 8.
Does anyone know the model of hdd inside this? The 2.5" Seagate 5TB hdd on its own is £159 so this looks like a good deal to upgrade my NVR's storage.
Haha I think the mods put that on, I didn’t. Suffice to say it’s the cheapest portable hard drive I’ve seen for this size.
Surprised this is so hot for 1p discount
Or if you prefer eBay for a penny more: https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Seagate-Expansion-STEA4000400-4TB-USB-3-0-Portable-External-Hard-Drive/25026649300
If you look at the unit price per tb, the 6tb is a better unit price than the 8tb.. 8tb is slightly higher unit price. However, the 10tb had the lowest unit per tb since Nov 2018, but bought too many drives lol
Why is 6tb better? From what I’ve been reading the larger 8 and 10tb drives have red or white disks which are supposed to be far be
do these sill have the crappy archive HDs in them or are do they have real disks now?
Can I run either of these as network storage (possibly by shucking)?
It will probably be law eventually to have all your data in the cloud so people can see all your data.
It's £99.77 now, so time to expire, lol.
I was about to ask the same thing, eg. what's 'special', about the 'special edition'?. There must be something out there differentiating it from the normal Seagate 4TB Expansion portion HDD's out there, right?. Alternatively it could be simply a fancy naming convention thing, so there's literally no difference in anything between the two anyway, etc ...
I recently bought a 2T seagate USB drive, 1 month in and it's making a clicking noise and fully expect it to fail any moment, hopefully not before I back it up.
My old one crashed while playing far cry and it’s just making a clicking sound now. Tempted at £80 but will most likely this time get the 8tb game drive.
Does Amazon special edition refer to it being dropped a few times on the way?
