Very tempting. Does anyone know if the SATA connector board is soldered onto the hard drive? If it isn't, I would take the hard drive out and use it internally in my desktop.

About 15% 1-star rating. Lot of space to lose data

I'm sure everybody knows this by now, but: This drive is shingled (SMR).

I've never heard of a 3.5" external that doesn't have a standard desktop drive inside, it's the portables that have USB integrated into the controller board (and thus do not have a SATA connector).

Same price at Staples, for people with rewards or discount gift cards to burn.

Seagate drives get way too hot. Seagate has the highest failure rates.
