Seagate Backup Plus Hub 6TB External Hard Drive - Black (STEL6000100) SMR drive, Retail is $159.99 and some Target stores have them for $79.98. Normally I have terrible luck with Target clearance, but was able to find on Brickseek a store within a few miles had them in stock at that price. Was amazed and found two on the shelf, and now Brickseek accurately shows they are out of stock.

Worth a shot if there is a Target close to you with them in stock, my experience is when they say "Limited" there is either one on the shelf, or there is one returned one in the back room which may or may not be on the shelf.

So if you are willing to head to Target and be disappointed, here is the Brickseek link.

And once again this is a YMMV, so sorry if they are more expensive (many were in my area) or they are out of stock.

Yes, it will be a SMR drive inside. Not worth it with the current value in shucking 8-10tb WD Easystore externals.

Agreed. As someone who actually got lucky, and picked one up last night, I'll be returning it, now that I know what's in it. In never ceases to amaze me how retail companies find new and surprising ways to cut corners on their consumer products. Just because it's an "archiving" product, doesn't mean I want my initial, or any, big data load to take forever to copy to the drive. As soon as storage companies put their drives in a shiny case, they stick in the lowest-end product they can shill, and charge a retail price.

Just finished completely rebuilding my 12 year old comp. Put in a 512g m.2 for the main storage. I'm looking for an internal HDD for storage of photos/videos in addition to the m.2.

Would this be worth shucking or should I wait for a deal on a pmr drive? I'm admittedly not well versed on the difference between the two (how much difference does it *really* make?)

I bought a 4tb one from Target yesterday for $58. The other targets around me had them for $84. There was another one available for $58 (at the Shaw location for any lurking Fresnans) but the plastic shrink wrap was torn off, and it was probably a return, so I left that one on the shelf.

I just returned from checking the 2 local Targets that have these drives in stock.

The in store price is $159.99.

Seems like the brickseek was accurate for Omaha fyi. Just picked up a 6tb,they also had a couple 4tb for $60 at the location I stopped at, too.

Have fun. Target B&M deals are simply not worth my time. Determine the value of your time before you chase a store that says it has stock.

Edit: Staples 4TB deal on the Seagate Backup Hub was decent for $70, so if you can find $60 that's not a bad idea.

How much space do you need for this storage? Is it backed up elsewhere as well?

SMR is fine for write once/read many scenarios. I know the 8tb drives have about 20gb of cache space for inbound writes, after that performance will drop down a ton.

Yeah, YMMV. Brickseek said my local had plenty in stock for $79. I happened to be there anyway, and there was one for $111.98 on discount (happens to be the price listed at other stores) and two at full price. I checked Amazon and regular price is $99 on there.

Seems like a great deal if you can get it.
