Seagate Expansion Desktop Hard Drive 4TB $99 ($74 Latitude Pay When You Spend $100) + Delivery @ JB Hi-Fi

700

Hey guys, saw that JB Hi-Fi is giving out $25 when you spend over $100 with Latitude Pay.

If you are planning to buy something else this seems like a good deal as it breaks down to $18.50 per TB of storage.

In this instance, I got the drive and this vacuum attachment thing for $1.00.

    Nice. I've been waiting for the portable 4tb version to drop back to sub $100 for a while but this one might do the trick at this price. Thanks

      Yes they can, have shucked multiples of these drives in the past

      Most definitely. They are much harder to take apart cleanly than WD and it's virtually impossible not to break most of the tabs holding it in place. So if warranty return is a real concern then I suggest taking your time pulling apart or opting for a WD instead. I've shucked 2 of these Seagate drives so far and will be in the process after this message of doing 14 more of the same!

      They can, but mine died in my NAS after like 4 months.

      •  

        That is unlucky, I have 4TiB WD's and Seagate's in a Netgear 204, probably over 8 years and 24x7.
        Need to disable power-down\spin-down if you intend running anything 24x7 like in a NAS, or just were unlucky.

        Yep had one of these die after 1.5 years only as well, very disappointing.

        Can always get JB to price match (not price beat) officeworks. It’s a ‘goodwill gesture’ though not a policy.

    What model of Hard drive is inside and is it SMR ?

      I've been getting Barracuda Compute ST4000DM004 drives out of these. They are SMR but operate fine for storage use. I'm getting 185MB/s and they don't draw too much power. I would not recommend as a boot drive.

      Get this instead Tech21 Evo Check Case for Samsung Galaxy Note10 (Smokey Black) :-)

    •  

      Or for those of us that live like 30+kms from a JB, shipping the HDD for just $4.99 extra counts towards the $100 latitude pay threshold. and saves all that gas money.

    Where are all the >10TB deals these days?

    •  

      Wishful, most retailers seem to be charging well above RRP with 6-8week wait times for 14tb+

    I know these are desktop drive mainly for storage, which I read sth elsewhere as it is not designed for heavily use as an internal drive.

    What if I store some media files and constantly connecting to my desktop?

    In such case, would it be easily damaged due to the heavy use? Any idea?

      You would need a fair amount of these, good value seeing 16TiB's are no where to be found and nowhere near the old $400 discount price.

        I’d keep my plots on CMR drives instead of these.

        • +5 votes

          Why, once the plotting has completed read speed isn't an issue, initial write will be slower but shouldn't affect your plotting too much overall

    This one need power? Is it better than no power?

    •  

      Plugs into the wall.

  •  

    Would this be good for ps 4?

    •  

      The drive is too big to fit in your PS4 as it's 3.5. If you plug in and use as external storage, I guess, but you'd be better off buying an SSD if you want to run games off it as it'll mean far greater performance. I use one of these.

  •  

    Not a lot of positive reviews for these drives for people who have owned them for longer than a couple of weeks. Seem unreliable.

    Need another 1$ item

      the vacuum attachment thing not on there no more :(

      just search * in the JB search bar and sort low to high price - best bet is a xbox or playstation game if you want to pick up because that will give you more options of stores to available to pickup from - plenty available for $1.
