    Used it ones worked. Plugged it in a second time started making noise and would not read in any computer any more. Took it in for repairs and was told its broken and can't be fixed. Money wasted

    I use my devices very carefully. but after 6 months of usage this HDD gives error and does not connect to the Windows PC . I am not the only one who is getting this error. I have seen many complains in multiple forums regarding same issue . Avoid Seagate even if it is on sale! you will regret it when you lose all of your data

    Using Decibel X on a phone, it clocks at 68dB / inside a car (another external mechanical drive I have is 32db / quiet whisper).

  • Mechanical Issue After 2 Weeks of Light Use - Photos Unrecoverable

    As a photographer, I am devastated that my Seagate Backup Plus Slim drive suffered from mechanical issues after only 2 weeks of use. I used my brand new drive to store thousands of dollars worth of work on a recent trip. If you want to use this drive for files that hold any sort of value, I would strongly advise NOT to buy this product. The drive was always ejected properly and stored in a cool, dry place. The mechanical issues were unavoidable and caused by a manufacturer's faulty product. *DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOUR DATA HOLDS ANY SORT OF VALUE TO YOU*


  • Best hdd for Ps4
    by

    from Scarborough on February 12, 2017

    Easy to open and works perfect for ps4. Has Seagate mobile HDD 7mm inside 128mb cashe and 5400 rpm, way better and faster loading times then stock ps4 HDD. Placed my stock ps4 HDD 7mm back inside the enclosure. My Ps4 slim reads 1.32tb .


  • Faster then stock ps4 slim HDD

    Excellent choice for upgrading ps4 HDD. I upgraded my ps4 slim 500gb to 1.5 TB. I thought that this portible HDD will have Samsung spinpoint M9T 9.5 size but when I opened this hdd enclosure was surprised to see it has Seagate mobile HDD 1.5TB 7mm 128mb cashe which is faster then the previous gen M9T 32mb cashe. Before installing in ps4 I checked in my PC for read and write speed around 145mb and 4k bench around 4mb. Blows away my hgst 500 GB which has read / write of 100mb. Faster loading times and lower temperature then my stock ps4 hgst 500gb which is also 7mm form. I easily placed my ps4 stock drive in this enclosure due to the metal sheet I removed carefully was designed for 7mm. Also picked it up in boxing day sale. Amazing price, I feel like I upgraded my ps4 slim HDD for no cost. As I am using this as portible HDD USB 3.0 with ps4 stock HDD for storing movies and Xbox one. 11/10.
