[Mike's Computer Shop] Seagate Backup Plus Slim STHN1000400 1TB Hard Drive - External - Portable $66.99

Not a bad deal for a 1TB hard drive. I have a couple of these and they work well for family photos and such.

Let Amazon know of a cheaper price. I'm going to. Don't want to pay shipping.

This was the regular price for a 2TB drive before the "floods" excuse over ten years ago.

I didn't post anything this time, however if you are asking about one I mentioned (5TB/$99 from Best buy recently) it is the same, shingled as the OP one. There is only a huge difference in $/TB [saying this is ice cold price]

As for shingled [or SMR] drives: not to go in any great details [you can find a lot online info] it is a way data is magnetically written on the drive, partially overlapping. Translated: as drive is getting full and new files are added, existing files must be also moved and written _again_ to make room for new files... Horrific process specially on small drives. Practically, these would be drives one can use for archiving [write once/read many times - like your movie or music library] and not everyday write/read tasks...

Don't really know how much writing on the drive xbox is doing while you play, but it's worth checking out before you buy [but this one is to $$$ anyway...]
