About $10 cheaper than any other retailer. There were some good deals during prime day but outside of that, it seems like a good deal.

Free shipping
Taxed only in CA

Got these in the email since I buy a lot of drives from them.

5-year warranty, is that new? Don't remember that from before.

I have one in my PS4 Pro. So far so good, from what I read a pure SSD wouldn't really be any faster (bottleneck is the SATA interface in the PS4 Pro).

Not new actually. I bought this drive a couple of years ago or so, and I just looked up the warranty on Seagate and its good until 2022. As much as Seagate has a bad rap, these drives are solid and you cannot beat that warranty at this price. I use this drive on my PC for my Steam library. Games load almost as fast as anything on my SSD.

Interesting option. I have been looking for a larger capacity 24/7 2.5 inch drive to run my surveillance (cameras) computer along with a current 4TB 3.5 WD purple. WD only sells 3.5 purples/surveillance (years back they did have 2.5) and similarly seagate. Any ideas how well this drive is for 24/7 writes or similarly for NAS? Anyone have experience or alternate 2.5 inch drive suggestions. The portable seagate 4 or 5Tb drives that can be shucked are terrible in my experience.

My current computer running the cameras has only space for one 3.5 and two 2.5 drives so this will help me retain the existing 4TB 3.5. My other option was to pony up for a bigger 3.5 purple but then this 4tb would be wasted.

Thanks

I don't think these are meant to be run 24/7. As far as 2.5" surveillance drives, WD has 2.5" Red drives made for NAS. Don't know if that will work for you.

Thanks for the quick reply. Ok, thats too bad. Was hoping since they tout the hybrid ssd features

The WD red 2.5s max out at 1TB, so less useful. I was hoping a minimum of 2TB or preferably 4TB 2.5 drive. I could always throw a SSD i guess but at the cost of $200 for a 2TB, i may as well replace the current purple 3.5 4tb with an 8TB at more or less that price. Oh well..

FYI this is at Newegg for $65 right now.

Was $60 with promo code yesterday, but that sold out pretty quickly.

I have a seagate in my HP Desktop (2009 model) and still going strong. I've used it everyday for 10+ years.
I did just add a SSD as the main drive, it's way faster now.

Just got one from Newegg, and this things makes a constant humming noise. It runs pretty hot - I can feel the heat from the palm rest, and there is really no r/w going. The seek time is also not great.

Maybe I have a bad drive, but I'm just really disappointed - it's going back.
