Picked up 2 for myself. Decent deal.

Look for Staples code for a discount if you can find one?

The amazon deal back on Jan 14 for 5TB for 114.99 was much better. It all comes down to when and how badly you need one. If you can wait, better deals to be had.

Not loud - it’s a portable spinning hard drive amount of noise.

No power supply - powered through usb

The sale price should be the MSRP, but this is a decent price all considered.

Once again, people are saying that this is too expensive, but nobody has provided a current better deal.

FYI, this (or a very similar model) is $75 on amazon.

no time machine, but there was a 5TB portable for $115 ($23/TB) on Amazon about a week ago. amazon-ca-deal-dead-seagate-portable-5t ... f-2518971/

I'd say $25/TB and under is acceptable for these kinda drives.

Like this one @ $125 https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/se ... y/14519587

There are probably better options for larger sizes out there but to OPs point, is there a better deal than this for anyone that wants a smaller drive?

I'd say that a 5TB drive should be cheaper per TB than a 2 TB drive. So $25/TB for 5TB, and $35/TB for 2TB?

I have been watching these for a while since a friend was interested in getting one. $35/TB is good right now. Unless that's the new norm sale price (everything else getting more expensive), when on sale, you can get 2TB for say... $60 historically, so if it must be smaller size, I'd meet in middle and say ~$30/TB is acceptable.

Can these be shucked? Looking for a decent deal on a 2tb 9.5mm HDD for PS4. Any recommendations?

I know that this would be the ideal, but I'm using a MacBook Pro with Boot camp and there is no way to change the internal SSD (512 GB size). I would like to use alternatives, considering that games nowadays have around 100GB each.

After seeing the Walmart drive for $9/TB, this seems bad in comparison.

but for most that was sol and ymmv on top of that.

generally 70 is the the goto price for 2tb 2.5 on any given day with sales spread out among retailers. So 60-80 sales is blahish. Anything in the 50 buck is a decent sale

2.5 4tb is 120 to 99 for sales. Hot deals were 89 or less with coupon PM and great efforts/ymmv style of deal.

According to reddit users, yes it can be shucked, unlike WD 2.5" drives.

However, the internal drive are the thick ones. Extra THICC - 15mm.

This is all unconfirmed by me, things may have changed
