smr technology. Pass.

smr is best for drives that don't get written too very much. Lots of reads and for backup storage, and smr is fine. Otherwise it can be slow and works very hard at killing itself.
Lmfao. I think you mean shuckable.
I bought two of these 5TB to try out. Ran the default CrystalDiskMark test on one. Got up to 130MBs Read, 124MB/s write. Hooked it up to my PS4 and tried a few games. Seems to work fine and about as fast as my internal Firecuda SSHD 2TB. It does get fairly warm though.. But if you plan to transfer a lot of large games to it, you will be waiting a long time. I found a 2GB game could take only a few minutes. But something that is 30GB will take 25min or more. So transferring 2-3 terrabytes to this drive could take all day. I wish I had my PS5 to try it. But think I'll get a regular SSD instead for it. These mechanical drives are definitely not fast enough anymore for large files sizes.

Does anyone know if there will be a 5TB deal for $79.99 or less?

Good deal. I use to be a seagate fan but quality control is bad. Western digital is a good solid brand.

uh...did you not bother to look at the product specs? Stick Out Tongue
Specs don't list what drive is inside. Is it SMR?

I think it supports external drives but doesn't play ps5 games from them. You need to move games to the internal storage to play them.

On another note. Solid deal. Regularly goes on sale for this price. I got it at this price in August. Great drive for PS4.

So from your analysis, it play PS4 games from the drive, correct? Wander if it play PS4 games if the drive is connect to PS5. If not, might have to spend $10 more to buy WD Black version. Any difference between easystore and black?
