Did I do something wrong in posting this or is everyone just disappointed in the deal? I know there have been some less expensive drives recently, but I haven't noticed any HGST mobile drives this large for this price or better. Just curious about all the thumbs down.

not a bad deal i guess people just don't realize that HGST is the premium brand in regards to hard drives and their looking for sheer capacity over reliability. If I was going to build a desktop this would be my brand of choice for a storage drive

Ah, thanks. I thought maybe I missed a post in the search I did and was getting down voted for a repost or that I missed some important details or something.

I dont know about calling them premium, but they are good drives. Western Digital owns hitachi drives as Seagate owns Samsungs drives. Toshiba bought out fugitsu. The only brand I stay away from is seagate/samsung.

I know how you feel with the Seagate comment. I did buy one of their backup plus slim 2tb recently, though. Pretty nice drive and fast. But, with Seagate, I am always worried about reliability. Some people have no issues, but personally, I have. The drive inside of the backup plus slim is supposed to be a really good mobile drive, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I have several HGST drives but WD was my drive of choice for the longest time. Never had an issue with any of my HGST but, I had a 500gb black label drive die in less than a year. Drives die, just the nature of the beast. As for brand, to each their own.

I have a pre-seagate samsung drive that I just filled and it is still going.. I don't deal with mechanical drives anymore as part of a computer.. i just use my tablets ssd and empty it onto an external when it is full
sadly there still isn't any good options for cheap backup medium.. i'd kill for a DVD-RAM that held 1TB per side

I heard that pre-seagate samsung drives were pretty good. Never had one though. I'm waiting for that cheap backup option as well. Not sure I trust it to an optical disc (there is always a few rotten eggs in the bunch), but I think the price of mechanical drives are inflated right now. For some reason, I feel like the 4 and 5 tb drives should be around the price of this drive right now. What do I know though.

well DVD-RAM was an archival disc with a life of 30 years that worked via a disc in a cartridge it was only hampered by the low capacity the only mechanical drives I own are externals that I rarely turn on

HGST is owned by WD but they still operate as a separate company.
They do make the most reliable hard drives: https://www.backblaze.com/blog/wp...by-mfg.jpg

The 1TB models were great for the PS4. I assume the 2TB models would fit also.

why can't I find like a 1T for less than $40... all of these bigger models, but I don't need it that big and price! Maybe even a 500Gb would work.

It will fit the question is will the ps4 pick up the hd. If this hd is self powered then I'd say yes. I use the 1tb for my Xbox one. They are reliable and have incredible speeds that make load times and installation so much faster
