The Seagate & SMR "facts" in this thread are getting out of control.

- SMR does not equal failure-prone. They are just slow if you continually rewrite over them. As archives/backups, or media player drives (write once, read many) they work very well.
- Western Digital is being sued right now because they also use SMR drives, even in their NAS line.
- HDD failure reports show that Seagate drives do, in fact, fail more than WD ones. But the percentage of failure is still very, very small - and on drives that are constantly being used. And if you say that percentage actually matters, then you should be buying HGST or something else, not WD.
- Pretty much all of the Youtube PC enthusiasts use Seagate drives in their storage arrays. Yes, they are sponsored by Seagate! But if they had true issues, those enthusiasts would tell us. (They do it on video cards, CPUs, etc.) And that isn't happening.

$120 for an 8TB drive, with a USB hub built in, is a great deal. And the drive is shuckable, *and* it doesn't need tape on the power connector.

And yes, it's anecdotal, but I have 9 of the Seagate 8TB drives shucked and in my server. (6 are the Backup Plus, 3 are Expansions.) Not in RAID or the like, just JBOD. But some are nearly 3 years old now, and I haven't had a single failure yet.
Nah, this is the typical 8TB sale price.that hasn't changed for around 2-3 years. Calculated on a per TB basis, the best sales price I can recall seeing was WD 14TB for around $200 last X-mas. This deal is only better than usual because Costco has a more liberal return policy than most sellers.

Unfortunately, hard drive manufacturers are effectively holding the line on prices, I think due to the lack of competition in the market. For the longest time, prices of higher storage drives would eventually drop to the $100 level when the manufacturers started producing higher storage drives. Now days, 8 TB for $120 is the normal sale price and they charge more for larger drives.
Then go find a place where you can buy with that kind of price right now and post it, otherwise you're just ignorant.

In for one. My Costco membership expired a long time ago, but I was still able to purchase it for $119 plus tax.

Anyone shuck one of these RECENTLY?

Any idea on the warranty if you do that? Wondering if it's like the "remove this label and your warranty is void" issue that was made illegal, or the WD model that's now started voiding warranties for shucked drives......

someone in reviews said this is NOT compatible to use as a PS4 external game storage...can anyone else confirm or deny ?
I thought ALL external hard drives with a USB 3 port would work ?

Theres only 3 hard drive makers left in the 3.5 inch format....WD, Seagate and Toshiba.
Also the pandemic basically caused everyone to work from home so the prices for computer equipment have gone up.
