Got one of these two days ago -- electronics guy told me he had put out a bunch of them the day before and people had been buying them, but there was one left that I got. Good as add-on external drive for XBox or PS4.

According to online info these can be "shucked" (opening the case to get a SATA drive inside). Most are now integrated with the USB controller and don't let you do that. however, be aware that this is a THICK drive (many platters to get 4TB) so too thick to put inside a game system or laptop. I read that people were using these for compact server bulk storage.

They can be shucked -- I have one in my Plex server, and it's doing great. It's a 15mm drive (laptop drives are usually in the 7-9mm range), so it does do well for bulk storage, especially in the case of storage that doesn't change a whole lot (like TV / Movie storage, which is how it's being used in my situation).

The stores around me that have this in stock have it at $109. Can you return and rebuy this at a store that has it for $54?
Most likely but depends on the employee you are dealing with.

Just picked one up. There is a newer packaging (109.99) that looks really similiar besides the font being bigger on the clearance ones. My store had trouble ringing it up in electronics and at the front so they had to input the DPCI.

Found at the clearance end cap as well

Funny you all day that Seagate sucks. Have have installed over 2000 drives in the last 3 years most of the failed drives have been Western digital not Seagate

If you examine the numbers all drives have outliers that are abive their aversge fail rate. Mind you you have to think about the numbers involved. 1000+ is a good sample size. Under 100 is not. No accounting for how many drives from the same lot. No accounting for how hard the drive was used. Also their failure percentage seems to be based on days in use before failure, so the failure percentage is not obvious or confirmable from that table. Based on their stats only buy certain HGST drives for sub 1% failure rates.
