Good price for this 4TB. Still can't be sure what the internal HDD spec is though.. I bought a WD 4TB "MyBook" and got a 7200rpm. I read somewhere that WD stated the following,We can only guarantee drive capacity. We cannot guarantee a particular internal hard drive model, data interface, rotational speed, or cache size in the external hard drive enclosure.

Seagate_Surfer

An external USB drive is a good place to start for backing up your data. 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.

From description "Install the free Seagate Mobile Backup app on an iOS or Android mobile device to back up all of the pictures and videos fromthe device to your external drive or the cloud." How does backup for mobile work. Does it work like personal cloud? Don't think this connects to a router.

Izu

I'm not sure for this specific model, but certain drives use SMR for their surfaces, which decreases sustained read/write quite significantly, so that's another factor on top of the 5400RPM these drives operate at. That said if it was a huge problem or if you were needing something necessitating high performance you'd probably be using an SSD in the first place, so it's somewhat irrelevant to most people.

philjstephenson

Errrr, without wanting to challenge this ^, its absolute rubbish! This is a slower 5400 drive but is perfectly OK for use as an extra day to day drive, its perfectly OK to rip this drive out and use it in a desktop/laptop for daily all the time use, to say its just for once a day backup is rubbish, there are still many drives around at this price point that are 5400 drives and they work fine, hell some manufacturers still use these high volume low speed drives in new kit....Its a Seagate drive, its 5400 it have a 2 year warranty and its just like all the other drives out there, this isnt a fragile little flower to be mollycoddled!

FinderOfDeals

Lots of people seem to be getting confused over the price for this drive. It's cheap for a reason. (Granted it's a good price for this kind drive) The clue is in the name. It's for backups. This means it's slow, and won't handle lots of activity, like what's needed for game play / video editing. It's really meant for once in a while usage. Say, backing up your work at the end of the day. I wouldn't bother sticking it on a PS4 / XBOX One.

Balfington

I have a laptop with a one SATA and Nvme drive because its slots demand it. Can I tell the difference? Um, nope. If it was possible I absolutely would not have bothered with Nvme.

diktiomenos

Yes, there are. eg: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Transcend-TS-CM80S-Solid-State-Enclosure/dp/B01N4EUXCU What you need to know is the type of the drive and the physical length. The M2 format comes in 2 electrical types, SATA and NVMe. They aren't compatible to each other and M2 ports don't necessarily support both (even though physically, the port is nearly identical). In terms of the length, the M2 drives come in different sizes eg. 2242, 2260 or 2280. The last 2 numbers is the length (in mm). If your case fits 2280 (the largest one) then it can fit the smaller ones too, but there are some shorter cases that fit only 2242.

Bobbystein

(lol) Why compare an NVME drive to a SATA drive? Are you on something? Can I have some?

Nope. Rang support after the online chat. They cannot understand why it isn't connecting. The sim is one of those that selects the nearest network, (multi network) but I've tried it literally dozens of times and it just keeps coming back with "connection error...". Even drove 2 miles to test it just in case it was a blackspot in my area. They have escalated the case, they think it "may" possibly be faulty unit. The reader itself is quite nice. The screen is "touch" for when you enter your email and pw. You cn change how you connect, via settings, either GSM or Bluetooth. Tomorrow I'm going to take it out and use it via BT. Hopefully SumUp will call me to let me know what will happen. All in all, it is a piece of kit released, IMHO, too soon and hasn't been tested fully. I'll post more updates as and when on the 3G thread HERE

My 3TB failed after 7 months when my son nudged it and it dropped from vertical standing position to its side- that was literally it! I know as I was watching it happen:) I have been really gutted to find it does not work after such minor incident... it’s almost like there is no protection for HDD inside- no rubber mounts or anything like that which explains why drive is so loud at times:/ So yeah, if you are prepared to store it’s somewhere very safe where there is no chance any one will have a chance to even touch it then go go it:) I am sure it will last into 2 years and more:) Ordered replacement and got original partially refunded by eBuyer which was huge disappointment on its own. I paid £75 for 3TB - got refunded £63 on the basis its more than 6 months old or other gibberish...not happy even though I could have buy 3TB again for £65 of eBuyer as need two of those for 2 different xboxes... I think I won’t be buying from them anymore as their return policy is a joke! My money will go somewhere else even though it’s a good price and decent drive (disregarding small accident!).

This seems a good price,I'm on a budget and would like a laptop for my son,as mentioned before it might be worth waiting for Black Friday,what do you think folks?So can the RAM be upgraded on this? Just out of interest could anyone advise an external HDD for this at a decent price?

Dave_Rigg

So easy to upgrade RAM with any consumer grade laptop. You just need the right case tool to pry the case open and a bit of gentle force. Provided that this is a Full HD 15.6" it's a great price. I rate the AMD APUs. I bought something similarly priced about 6/7 years ago with an A8 APU (quad core 1.8GHz with HD56xxx graphics or something) and it lasted me that long until the CPU became noticeably slow as I began to use it for more complex tasks. It was a Dell Inspiron 15R, highly recommend. If I had some extra cash floating around I would definitely buy this as a daily driver.

jaydeeuk1

Might as well wait till BF. Pretty sure an i5 based laptop with full hd and ssd will make an appearance for £349. They're like death and taxes.

Alfresco

Read the question I was replying to. This cpu has its place and is fine for the use in question. You're not going to experience throttling using office and watching media. The RAM however might cause problems. It was a simple question and simple answer. The avarage person doesn't want to buy a laptop and upgrade the ram out of the box.

sam_of_london

Still is better than being soldered. Many laptops/Chromebooks these days , come with soldered ram as well to stop them from being upgraded.

As I said though, it's not the drives themselves, it's the electronics Lacie use in their kit, mostly things like power supplies. Ironically the two worst failures I've had with their stuff have been with NAS boxes. The first had two mirrored drives where the PSU failed and took both drives with it. Luckily it was just backups of CD's for installing software from, so whilst a pain, not the end of the world. The second was again two drives but as one logical drive for use with a Mac doing video editing. Again, looks like the PSU failed and both drives were fried. Luckily it was just working storage and no important data was lost, but Lacie took a long time, under warranty, to apparently try to repair before replacing the unit and drives. Speaking to other people in the industry, it seems it's a fairly common issues with many people pointing at them using cheap, off the shelf components and PSU designs rather than their own. Weird considering they make a big thing out of the outer design.

bingowings85

Quoted For Truth. Buy cheap buy twice after the drive fails and takes your data with it. Get a NAS with RAID 1 (minimum) and stop messing about.

jplewis76

Thanks for the heads up. It's that kind of info that I look for on a lot of these deal posts when it comes to computing stuff. Cheap yogurts and biscuits, not so much

Huawei_or_my_way

Same product on Amazon has reviews where the drive has failed quickly which supports the comment from Begize. Might be worth it if you pull the drive out BUT cannot confirm exact drive in case. I suspect it will be whatever drive seagate has 'excess stock' of at the time the Lacie kit is made !!! Probably vote cold because too many unknowns.

Begize

Posted this before on Lacie threads but bears repeating. I work in the IT profession and have had the misfortune to deal with Lacie kit a few times. Their electronics (not the discs themselves) are very cheaply made and have a tendency to fail causing corruptions and disc failures. They are very much form over substance. I would avoid them personally so cold from me.
