does it go to sleep on idle? my shucked WD drives goto sleep if no data is read/write after X minutes.
WD has a utility that can disable that. Not sure if the utility works after you shuck it.

Quote from amoroso7 :
Is this hard drive works with PS5 ?
Yes, via USB. Just keep in mind it will NOT run as fast as your internal drive… not even close. But I believe the PS5 prioritizes PS4 games onto the external drive so that your PS5 games get the benefit of speed.

Not a bad price. $90 seems to be the pricepoint for these 5tb portable drives. The WD has been this price a few times over the last year. That being said, I'd hold out for the WD as the seagate drives are pretty universally known to be trash.

ditto that. Blackblaze [backblaze.com] stats could back that statement as well. keep in mind that Blackblaze uses Seagate higher end drives, and they are still trash.

Random but I went through all of my old drives this weekend to again back up the content on them. Two of them, both Seagate drives, actually worked perfectly even though the last time I used them was 2013. I was surprised and happy cause there was content on them I thought I had lost.

How is it not a requirement at this point for manufacturers to note whether a drive is SMR or CMR? Even if not on the box, it should be noted in the spec sheets.

Anyhow, not trying to crap on the post. This is a good deal. Just venting about HDD manufacturers shadiness on the subject.

are costco members the only ones who can buy this?
Yes. You have to log in to even view it. If you go to the store, they check your membership at the door.

If this is the USBC model, I bought this one on Amazon while ago for video storage and games and stuff. It's great, very fast for a hard drive but know that since it is a hard drive you won't get the full speed of USBC, I can't give numbers but the noise level is fine and it will only get slightly warm If You Really work It. At the regular price I was happy with it.

I had hooked mine to my PS4. When I got a PS5, all I had to do was switch it over and it installed all my games and all my info moved over.

I have the WD 5TB game drive. I believe it's not shuckable. Then that's an advantage for this drive.
