Not in CA Frown

On the fence about this. SMR drive and a lot of bad reviews. I generally don't believe in 'seagate is crap' mentality since in my experience they not any less reliable, but these are newer tech.

I currently use 2 4tb drives connected to my Xbox one to watch movies and TV shows. I can't find any info on the maximum drive size the Xbox can read. Does anyone know if it will read 2 of these?

I have a few of these for data backup. they are 1 to 2 years old. no problem so far. like pas45, I don't let them on all the time. power off right after use. I guess that's how the drive is supposed to be used?

This is how I use my backup drives too, but I want to take these out of the case and use in my PC as media server so they'll stay on most of the time.

Yes, that's what I did with all of mine.


Every 3.5in external drive I've seen still uses a normal SATA hdd. It's the 2.5in portable ones that have built in USB controllers now.
