  • Thanks OP.

  • Is USB-C worth the extra $$?

  • Does anyone know of any physical store (cash payment) that will price match this?
    Tried to check Officeworks, but the model on their website is different :(

    Thanks

  • Nice, been waiting for this to drop in price!

    look like it's a proprietary non-standard SATA drive in it

    I will try to avoid something like this in case I need to recover files

    • It's been an issue for years. On the other hand, WD has the smallest failure rates.

        Doesn't help when they do fail though. One of mine did, thankfully it didn't have anything important on it, just some backed up……linux distros. One of my friends lost their photo collection when their HDD failed and it had one of these connectors.

          Yeah, doesn't help at all once they fail.

          But also note that your friend lost their pics mostly because they didn't have a copy.

  • Thanks OP, grabbed one! Even if its not a standard drive inside…..just means I won't put non backed up data onto it…which no one should regardless.

  • Haven't there been 4TB for $100?

    There's Seagate 4TB for around $122 on Amazon

      ok

      • my 4tb seagate at $105 arrived last week after being ordered September 1st so YMMV

  • Using one of this, its pretty good

    Interesting that camelcamelcamel says its the lowest price - was $139.99 during prime day https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/572623

  • Will this work on a PS4? In fact, are there any specific requirements for external HDDs if you want to hook it up to a PS4?

    • +1

      As far as I know, usb 3 drives are good to go with the PS4. I myself have a 2.5*" hdd connected with a usb 3.0 cable for the that hard drive I took out of my old laptop.
