Good deal on the 4TB. These drives inside have SATA connectors, so you can use them as bulk storage in high density 2U servers. Make sure you use some fault tolerance and backup, though. Working them hard will increase the chance of failure on them. I've got 7 of them running with one failure in a year.

Why are $60/2TB drives still getting flagged as slick deals??? This has been the threshold "slick deal" price for more than two years.

Seagate 4tb backup plus same price in Costco...plus you probably have 1+year of warranty. Just got it last week when my other 1.5 tb failed after 3 years. Decent price though.

Reviews for 4TB drive from Costco are pretty bad.

That's always been the case with HDDS. All your critical data should be on mutiple drives anyway or a NAS. I had 2 each of WD and Seagate drives failing for no reason so...

I think that is a lot more likely with seagate, I have lots of WD and HGST drives that have been running 3-6 years without failure and have replaced dozens of 1-2 year old seagate drives. Not to mention all the out of box failures on seagate. In my experience seagate just makes terrible drives, and has for as long as I can remember. I've had other drives fail, but it is really rare aside from the old deskstar fiasco. I agree you should always have a backup of anything critical, no matter what drive you use. They all fail eventually. I can say I've never had an HGST drive fail though, and have around 80 running 24/7.

Agree with you somewhat....seagate has greater failure rates particularly looking at reviews around online.

$20/TB (on med-high performance drives, mind you) is the going rate for a good deal nowadays. Hard pass.

I got on of the 2tb's as a christmas gift, It seems to work fine, and im not one of those seagate haters.. but I will say the cable it came with was
1. shorter than usual
2. cheap/thin feeling
3. had a dent in the connector that I had to straighten out to plug it in.

The enclosure is nice looking but has no rubber feet which means it's just slick plastic on the bottom.. not cool.. gonna add some sticky feet or maybe hot glue to keep it from sliding around.. does not appear to go into auto spindown when idle for a time so keep that in mind as well.

What about the 2tb drives? also sata? I have one but don't wanna open it up and void the warranty.

Had got the 2TB a while back to gut out and install in my PS4. Works well.
