Well that didn't last too long...
eBay is out of stock.
Amazon is 5-8 weeks.
Newegg has it but $6 more (for shipping)

Also I was excited for a second because I thought it was going to be 3.5" not 2.5" but this works too.

It was pretty hot.
Unless my eyesight is going and it is 3.5", the 2.5" were $20 more than this roughly.

I have this, its actually not bad, probably 12mm or something so not that much bigger than a normal 2.5" drive.

I use it for xbox so haven't opened it up to see if it has been Frankensteined inside! :lol:

Ironically the "Slim" 4TB is about twice as thick as the non-slim 4TB :lol:

Basically the "Slim" is last year's model and twice as thick as the OP which is this year's model called the "Expansion" model

Regardless of the model variants, thickness and naming conventions... there doesn't seem to be any 3T or 4TB 2.5" mechanical drives from major manufacturers that are coming in at @ 9.5mm or less - correct?

Are we at that stage of platter tech yet? That's a development that would interest me...

Not that I've seen in retail.
Someone may have announced something but I haven't seen anything that I can hold in my hand yet.

Nice price, got one from the Dell sale a while back. Too bad they don't sell a silicone case for it like the slim version though.

FYI too thick for the PS4.

Anyone know what drive is inside this? Is it reliable?

I'm a bit skeptical about Seagate due to their reliability issues
