    Seems cheaper to buy the 5tb for 89.99 if you calculate per tb cost.
    18.8/tb for 4tb vs 18/tb for 5tb.

    •  

      Is the 5 TB I for 89.99 USD or AUD ?

      •  

        i think it's a typo. If the 5TB is cheaper outright than 4TB, he wouldn't need to bother calculating per TB cost.

        •  

          5TB from same vendor, if u change the capacity from 4 to 5TB..
          it works out 70 cents and cheaper per TB

          •  

            @squidz: he's saying you can get 5TB for $89.99 which is $34 cheaper than 4TB.

            •  

              @lostn: its in USD. i was viewing the item via amazon.com.
              i make it a point to double check amazon.com prices especially to make sure no markup on amazon.com.au.

              the 5TB black/red version seem to have increased in price. but the 5tb silver is still discounted at USD 89.99 = AUD 131.21
              4tb is USD79.99 for all colours. = AUD 116.63.

              conversion using xe.
              not including shipping. that cost is about USD 8.43 = AUD 12.3 as an example to my address in QLD.

              strangely, the price shipped from amazon US (USD$89.99 + No Import Fees Deposit & $6.49 Shipping to Australia) seems overall cheaper than ordering from amazon.com.au especially if you do not have amazon prime (AUD $148.34 + $9.14 Delivery for silver 5TB)?

                @stalker878: The import fees are added at checkout if you're using Amazon US.

                And if you have AU Prime, you don't pay for shipping US items to AU if they are above a certain dollar amount. Used to be $49 but I think it's temporarily lower now.

    Are these faster in speeds to WD element drives, I'm thinking for movie playback

  •  

    Without Prime it's $135.25 and they're $137 at Office Works. It doesn't seem like it's on sale.

    Oops, that model is now $159 at OW, but I swear mine was $137 when I purchased it.

    Seems there's a normal 4tb version and a backup plus version. They're both the same speed but the back-up version acts is for backing up the whole pc.

    Any experience shucking these? I've found some YouTube videos for the 2tb back up portable but not sure what the 'plus' part means, whether they still use the same non soldered connector and drive?

    Beware of these Seagate drives, I've had two fail on me this year. Never again.

      Specifically the 4TB ones?

      • -2 votes

        2TB from experience. Same model so I'd assume they are just as prone to failures.

          That's a poor assumption to make.

              @restored: Are you assuming that negative Amazon product reviews are somehow indicative or proportionate?

              • -1 vote

                @dm01: I am assuming that my previous experience and negative Amazon product reviews would be most useful in determining the worth of purchasing a product. Is that a problem?

                • +1 vote

                  @restored: Your experience is a) with a different product and b) also not indicative so c) probably not all that useful in determining anything beyond your own experience.

                  •  

                    @dm01: So you're just going to disregard the reviews of actual buyers of the product? Ok mate

                    •  

                      @restored: Again, explain to me how reviews are in any way indicative or representative? You do realise people are an order of magnitude more likely to write a review if they have a negative experience than if something operates as expected?

                      Besides, 74% of people gave this a 5-star rating, 9% 4-star, so it seems the vast majority have no issues at all.

                    @dm01: some googling shows plenty of warnings against seagate

                      @Gerry H: "Some googling" can find warnings against anything you like.

                    •  

                      @Gerry H: Some googling shows plenty of warnings against seagate yes, also shows plenty of warnings against WD, Toshiba, Hitachi, Maxtor, Fujitsu etc. Guess I will just build my own hard drive or back everything up to floppy disc since there is apparently no reliable mechanical hard drives available on this planet

        •  

          I would rather invest in some WD model.
          This is funny, in my country Seagate is the most reliable disk while WD (Western Digital) is a bomb, problems and more problems.
          But here WD it the most reliable disk while Seagate is a bomb hahaha

          I wouldn't buy Seagate with such bad reputation.

    •  

      were they all external? i've had 3 internal ones over the years, 80gb then 500gb then 1tb, never had problems. i hear alot about seagate being unreliable. is WD and toshiba better? wats the best brand? i just bought this https://www.lacie.com/as/en/products/usb-3.0-external-hard-d... because i like shiny metals hope it doesnt have problems…

      •  

        The price you paid for it just because Mac is mentioned, I am pretty sure is more than a great and large disk plus a decent 3.0 USB case.

          lol u need to read my threads if u think im an apple fanboy. i liked the look, unfortunately for me i have gold lust/shiny metal lust. it was bad price per gb but i just hope it doesnt fail.

          •  

            @Gerry H: "if u think im an apple fanboy" hahahahaha you made me laughs lol got ya.
            It is pretty tho but personally I would prefer to find some case with that look haha

            Well, at least their orange model which is protect with some kind of rubber, h0ly m0ly, it has a pretty awesome review.

            "She'll" be right.
