    Will this work with the ps4?

    • +4

      Yes can be removed from case for internal use. Or external backup/media drive.


      Contains Samsung Seagate Momentus SpinPoint ST2000LM003 2TB 2.5" 5400rpm SATA Notebook Hard Drive 9.5MM.

      It doesn't look like it but I recommend putting the Seagate 2.5" SSHD for the PS4. I placed one in yesterday and there is a noticeable difference in loading speeds. Not to mention the extra storage for games :)

    • +5

      Yes they definitely work in a PS4.
      Thanks OP for this great deal.

      • +1

        Agreed. They are easy to open too so the process is really simple.

    • It's the one I used for my ps4.

  • +1

    Dammit! Why did I get sucked in to that $104 catch of the day WD 2tb? Would have much preferred this! ^_^

    • +1

      Why? Have you received $30 bonus for it?

      • Yes, I received the $30 catch of the day store credit, which must be used to spend on more stuff at COTD.

        The drive here is better, $10 cheaper - and slimmer!

  • +1

    Possibility of officeworks price beat?

    • +1

      Good luck, OW does not sell in White colour. But no harm to try and keep us informed.

    • +3

      Just tried price beating at OW five dock and they said no. it has to be the same colour and they don't sell white.

    • +1

      Yes manage to get one at office works Taylor's Lakes today even though no white. Got the metal color. Manager was nice about it.

  • +2

    Great find g12345567

  • +1

    Can the drive be removed to work in a laptop?
    Is it 7200 or 5400?

    I need to upgrade my SATA drive to 2TB so went to MSY's website & am surprised they don't sell any!

    • +1

      it should be 5400 and standard SATA port with 7mm drive. Anyone confirmed?

      • +1

        g12345567 (above) says it's 9.5mm

      • +1


        Does anybody know if there are there any 7200 2TB 2.5" drives?

        • +2

          HGST AKA IBM or Hitachi. I only buy Seagate or HGST as using standard SATA.

      • +1

        I haven't seen any 2TB 2.5" drive with 7mm in thickness.

    • +1

      7200rpm drives are limited to 1TB.

      Edit: Oops on further googling it seems you can get 2TB 7200rpm drives however they aren't cheap.

      • +1

        I had trouble finding some (not even eBay have any!)

        Finally found one:


  • +1

    Is this good as a regular fast portable drive? I'm a tad confused by all the 'backup' software stuff it seems to include.

    • +2

      Just reformat it

    • +1

      Should be. Usually a quick format does the trick for getting rid of all the bloatware.

      • +1

        Seagate changed logo, so it is cheap for old stock.

  • +1

    Typical, I bought the same one yesterday from Dick's for $147!!

    • +9

      Buy this, then return it unopened next week with yesterdays receipt.

      • +3

        Isn't that dishonest??

        *Just ordered it! Hope they take it back.

        • +2

          Not DS as they have no change of mind refund policy!!!

        • +2


          Shit. I just ordered two! Better cancel them and just accept that I'm an unlucky swine.

        • +2


          (d) What should I do if I have changed my mind and want to return a product?

          Please choose carefully as Dick Smith does not normally accept return of products where you have simply changed your mind.

          It says "not normally" but I have returned stuff before unopened and with receipt without a problem.

        • @whitey:

          Thanks for the advice but I am not going to bother - too much hassle. They did cancel my order for two drives though, which I was pleased about initially but now I'm thinking that you can never have too many!!

        • +2

          @gasman70: No, you can't. ;)

        • +2

          Certainly not at this price :)

    • +1

      You didn't even use a coupon code?!

      • +2

        I hate to say it but no, I didn't! Some Ozbargainer I am!

        At least I managed to cancel the two I just ordered!!

  • +1

    What's difference between Seagate Backup Plus 2TB Portable Hard Drive and Backup Plus Slim Portable 2.5" 2TB ?

  • +1

    Can't c c right?

    • +2

      Yep, you sure can C+C, as long as the store near you has stock.
      It says online only, but add to your cart then select C+C.

      • +1

        Thanks. Got tricked. Now to find stock

  • +1

    Thanks OP, good find!
    Damn price is so good cannot help myself!! Got the 5tb from OW and WD from COTD now this and I still have another 2tb portable brand new I have not even open yet….buy now think later, keeping up OZB moto :)
    I also have the same from TGG I paid $130ish a while back and is superb super compact compared with the rest of my portable incl toshiba and WD elements, highly recommended.

    • +1

      I thought I had it bad with my addiction. You sir, are worthy of your user name.

      • LOL….how observant, I will eventually use all of them….at some point in time :)

  • Thanks OP.

  • Does this use usb3?

    • Yes, of course :) .
      Will work with USB2 also, only slower.
      Haha, just checked DS website and under specs it says "USB Interface —- No"
      Must be wireless lol.

      • Cool thanks. Brought. Thx OP

      • Yeah Dick smith's specs on their site are not exactly the gold standard for accuracy. The Tomtom go from yesterday has "no" beside turn by turn guidance….. and that's just one of many, many examples.

  • +2

    Absolute bargain, I managed to pick one up with a $10 mates rates voucher. Thanks OP!

    This is the info sheet if anyone needs it (from Seagate's website) -



    • Thanks. Interesting that the info sheet says 3yr warranty, yet DS says 1yr.

      • +1

        I can confirm that they are 3 year warranty.

    • Thanks, my mates rates that expired 15/06/2015 is still applying as well.

  • +2

    Thanks g12345567, a proper bargain.

  • +2

    Would you guys say this is a good price to buy one? Please help! I am not too familiar with pricing on these products. Thanks

    • +4

      Great price and a great drive - very small and very fast. Proper bargain.

      • +1

        @gasman70, thanks for the advice. Picked up one :)
        And thanks OP!

  • +1

    I use this every day - great drive. Fast and never fails.

  • Thanks OP. Was looking to buy a 1TB for around this price!

  • Grabbed one + a couple of eneloop packs and some printer ink - all on special. Thanks Op! :)

    • Which charger do you use?

  • +2

    I've got 2 in last sale for 110/ea, for this price … well … grabbed another one .. Dammit, why I checked ozbargain this morning?

  • +9

    Just a reminder….dicksmith staff now has the ability to match online prices instore. So if you want to pay cash, or are unable to C&C due to a stock count error you can still just ask the staff to match the online price.

    • Thanks, just grabbed one, the guy was happy to price match in store.

      Box says 'slim, metal design', feels plastic to me though. :/

  • +2

    Got 2, one for the PS4 , one for general use.

    Excellent find.


    • I installed one just last week in the PS4 (which cost me $148 from JB), but I'm out of storage for downloads and the second drive will come in useful either down the track, or maybe I'll just install the 2.5"drive in my NAS so I can use that for lower power downloads, instead of having my desktop on 24/7

      I order click and collect at around 3pm this afternoon, had the sms at 4:30 that order was ready, made it into DSE just before closing time. Salesperson was impressed they were so cheap.

  • excellent, would buy if i needed one, i bring shame to my ozbargain brethren.

  • +1

    I would love to put one of these in my PS4, but with all the reports I've seen of chirping after it gets to over 500gb, I don't want to risk it. I'm so torn. D;

    • What happens?

      • +3

        I did not know it until Wheatgrass hinted at it and I followed up with a google search, but apparently this Hard Drive will make periodic chirping/buzzing noises when installed in a PS4! Lots of forums seem to talk about the same issue:

        With this being the only 2TB HDD that fits in a PS4, and with it being so cheap, might still be worth it for a lot of people.

      • +1

        I've seen people mention the drive making a noise, like a beep or "chirp", in their Playstation 4s. I'm not a PC person, but from what I've read some people think the noise happens because the drive switches between different areas to load data, or it isn't getting enough power.

        Either way, I personally don't want to deal with worrying over the possible noises.

        Edit: Ninja'd by Dero. :P

        • +1


        • +1

          the noise can also be from when the drive is trying to save power by parking the heads; because thats the problem with these drives they are in a lose lose situation.

          try save power because people use them in laptops/battery devices and the drive can make funny noises and potentially wear out faster.

          try and max the performance and the thing sucks juice leading people to complain they are no good to use in laptops etc.

        • I actually took the plunge recently, and didn't have any problem at all with mine..

  • Can't resist and bought one. :D

  • thanks OP. bought one

  • Hi guys just wanted to say i got one of these for 128 from jbhifi at the start of the year and put it in my ps4 and works great so if you are intereted buy one and watch videos online on how to do it.

  • Thanks OP! My WD 1tb just broke down and I'm not sure formatting it works.

    Just wondering my C&C order if from bondi store which is 5km away as the nearby stores ran out of stock. Is it possible for DS to send it to the broadway store which is really close to me?

  • -1

    Thanks , but I will stick with WD. Been buying hard drives for more than 20 years. Have never, repeat NEVER EVER had a Western Digital die. I still have WD IDE drives in networked enclosures from 15 yrs ago, still going. Had plenty of Seagates die. Bought Hitachis as well but they tend to be more expensive.

    So thank you, but no thanks. No Seagates for me.

    P.S I do not work for Western Digital.

    • +2

      Plenty of Western Digital portables fail and with the custom controller once anything breaks, even the USB3 port.

      They are cactus. You cannot remove the drive and use it.

      • When you say "custom controller" what are you referring to? Is it a custom interface used in place of SATA?

        • If it's similar to my experience, by default you couldn't simply take the SATA drive off the SATA to USB bridging board and connect to another, non WD solution - my Mac couldn't see it. Others have commented you could use some Linux or Windows way to format the drive, but that wasn't my option. I don't think it would've made any difference had I used the Mac's Disk Utility to format it.

    • correct me if I am wrong here but are these still Samsung SpinPoint drives, not the typical Seagate ones…..unless I am wrong??
      I know Samsung sold to seaagate but I think they still use the Samsung SpinPoint just co-labelled now??

    • +2

      I've been buying hard drives for more than 20 years as well, and have had WD's die. and if you read around, there's no one perfect brand. everyone has problems regardless of brand, you may have just been lucky.

      • +1

        yep exactly - im in the opposite situation to invalid - been buying drives for 20 years too - only ever had WD drives fail but Im not naive enough to think that WD are crap and seagate are the best.

    • I have see many many WD die for nearly 20 years, only WD Black is good. For original Seagate not the LP one, much better than WD

    • I've had WDs fail on me but never a Seagate. Each to their own lol.

    • Your sample size is small. I've never had drives from either brand die on me, and I've bought heaps.

    • -1

      Must have missed the point that they are rebranded samsung drives.

      In any case I never said WD were the best, I just said I have had a very good run with them, even have 15 yr old WDs still going strong. Everyone has ther (psychological) favourites, and it takes a lot, sometimes to shift that. Like a major catastrophe/ data loss.

  • +2

    Now showing Home Delivery only.

    • Actually now it 404's, think it's all over folks.

      edit: actually if you search through DSE website you can still order it ( delivered only) by adding to cart.. dunno if it will process correctly though…??

      • +3

        You can still add it to your cart from the list page of USB drives.

  • Not anymore…..its 404'd

    Had it sitting in cart, all details entered, just waiting on finish work to get credit card from wallet…..

    Buggered it.

    Might have to rethink my policy of not card ready to go..


    • You snooze … ….. !

    • You can still find it, if you go via the DS links like Storage->Seagate and still add it to cart, don't know if they will honour it but worth a try.
