If you do not have a backup of that drive and you care at all about what is on it, make getting a backup of it your first priority right this minute.

Sarcastic. He's alluding that Seagates aren't trustworthy. That's incorrect.

As for video editor and up coming new games i think 2TB still a little too small of space to have. Most games now a day around 50GB and 4k videos will chew up that 2TB easily. Curently looking for 4TB.
Click on OP's link then click on 4TB. It'll cost you $94.99. These have to be green drives (not 7200 rpm) given that the 4TB drive comes with 256MB cache.

2tb has the benefit of not requiring any special formatting considerations.
so i would only get a bigger drive full of 2tb partitions
IF the cost per gb was lower - which in this case may be difficult to find
unless you were lucky enough to get a 8tb drive under $150 - recently.

Anybody have one of these? I see mixed reviews and I've only ever owned WD mechanical drives. My almost 10 year old WD Black is making really weird noises and will probably fail and I just need something to keep files on don't care too much about speed.

Which laptop will fit a 3.5" drive?
Probably none. 3.5" mechanical drives are for desktops. 2.5" or less is for laptops (you could use these in a desktop, but it's usually more expensive per TB).

You should do something fast, because your drive may fail to boot at any time now if it's dying.

As for this drive, I don't have one, but remember - it's from Seagate and It's cheap (it's also getting inexpensive). I'll repeat - it's cheap..... Buy in duplicates or triplicates so you can back up your backups... but first, ask yourself, "Do I feel lucky"?

I put my trust in Seagate to store my girlfriend's hip hop music and old picture albums of her ex. Seagate is so reliable I told her, that she doesn't even need a backup
