I mean, they're hard drives, and get moved often; risk of head crash dramatically increase.

FWIW, I shucked 3 4TB Toshibas(3.5" variants), and one 5TB WD. All of them have been running on my PC's reliably for the past 3-4yrs

Good price, bad drive. High failure rate.

I've been doing a lot of searching for a 4TB external hard drive lately. From the research, they all seem to have a high failure rate. I ended up going with the WD MyPassport for $94 on Amazon. This is as good as a deal as I've come across in the past couple weeks.

Does this actually have a single 4tb 2.5" drive in it? Also, is this shuckable, I.e. has a SATA drive in it?

I've had good experiences with Toshiba HD's in the past. They seem reliable for the most part.

I would stay away from Seagate like the plague tho.

Not sure about the 4tb though, but my 1.5TB canvio basic bought in 2013 is still running fine. Pulled the trigger on this yesterday.

I have a 4TB MyPassport paperweight sitting on my desktop collecting dust, probably a dead circuit board that's soldered to the USB connector.

Have you tried shucking the drive to a PC? I believe the PCB after the HDD handles encryption, so data might not be salvagable

I got this exact drive for the same price on prime day. Have been using it for weekly desktop backups, writing around 2.75tb each time. Zero problems.

Just run a disk check when you get it to make sure there are no immediate errors, it's possible the shipper is rough with the package and could cause damage that way. It's a risk you take with any hard drive, regardless of manufacturer.

We're those walmart clearance from back in 2016? I have 5 sitting on a shelf unopened. Was planning to do a home server but I'm lazy. Now I'm wondering if I should just sell them locally and buy 10tb drives on BF.
