Looking at the names, one is slim.

Seven years since my, less than 2 year old, portable seagate failed, I am yet to build enough confidence/courage to buy another seagate.

I agree. I bought a 2TB slim for my Xbox one and it died within 24 months. I have 4 Western Digital portables going strong with one that is over 10 years old.

Small sample size to be sure, but doesn't inspire confidence with Seagate.

Were you able to recover the games from the drive?

No, but it wasn't a big deal as I typically only buy physical discs. Just took time to reinstall.

The drive started making some audible nosies at first, not clicking but something not normal. It wouldn't be recognized as a drive by my Xbox. Sometimes a hard reset would kick it back into gear.

I took it off the Xbox and tried to reformat and repair it on my pc. That bought me another 6 months before it died outright.

My WD passport 2TB drive is only a few months newer than the Seagate but had never skipped a beat. I need to get another 2 or 4 TB drive since half my library isn't installed anymore, first world problems to be sure.

And it's not like my Xbox is a heavy use item. If I am able to play 4-6 hours a week that a feat.

I shucked that 2tb Seagate expansion and put it in my ps4 about 4 years ago and it's still running strong. If I remember correctly, it was a samsung spinpoint inside.

I'd imagine hard drive reliability from major manufacturers would generally be the same, but with these comments and Louis Rossman's video on seagates, I'm wondering if I should ever buy from them again

Ooh wow, another "slick deal" at the same 2TB/$50-60 price point. Yawn. Waiting for an actual slick deal.

On the other hand, I had a portable 500GB WD Elements drive and a WD My Book 4TB that both failed on me. I heard bad things about Seagate, but I have a few of those with no issues that I have had for a couple of years. I still have some WD drives that are fine as well.

No kidding. It makes a lot more sense to get a 4tb which have regularly been on sale for $70-$80 after tax (which still isn't a great deal, but better than this insanity)
