Seagate has announced a new HD that will add space for over 50+ games to the Xbox One. The new external HD looks to be ideal for those gamers who cannot stand having to delete games from their system.
Not bad for the price. Just get rid of the ugly green and make it black.
They would say flip it over. Or paint it, or stickers.
Or just buy a WD passport and get your choice of color. And the new Ultra goes to 3TB, so even more room.
ugly green??? homage to the OG xD
The OG was predominantly black too... my slim and my one are black so i'm just bein a little selfish
That's awful for the price. 2TB externals have been going for $75 - $80 all the time and have sales for around $60, you're paying an overhead for a green plate with Xbox on it.
Mentioned this in another article.. I paid like $90 CDN for a 2tb drive.. And its a 7200rpm drive.. I've noticed many like to play the usb-powered angle as a benefit when its only ensuring a slower 5400rpm drive.. Such as life tho I guess.. Companies pray on those that don't research their purchases
I like that it works with the 360 as well...seeing as how you can find similar drives for about the same price or less, the only thing off putting would be the color at this point.
I wonder what the rpm is?
itll be 5400 id bet.. its a usb-powered portable drive. so a 2.5" laptop drive @ 5400rpm... better off buying a 7200rpm desktop drive (3.5")
Ewww Seagate, no thanks.
Do not buy Seagate they are known as by far the most unreliable HDD maker out there.
I wouldn't say that. I think they are the smartest out there as they've gotten their failure rate to the T. Most of their warranties are 1-2 years, and it is at that beautiful time zone that their hard drives seem to fail. So, they are the most reliable HDD manufacturer as you know that the drive will likely fail after that warranty period. But honestly what HDD maker hasn't gone downhill since that tsunami a few years back. WD is slightly the better, but even they have higher failure rates than Seagate. HGST and Toshiba drives seem to be the better performers, but least adopted.
I've had a wd 3 tb for about 8 years now. still works like a charm. i can only go with what i know till they do me wrong
I've had a 1TB Seagate that has been abused with reformat and fill ups. And I have a 640GB My Book WD external. They are both fully functional. But they are 5+ years old. I'm talking about what has been released in the past few years. Quality control has gone down.
2 yrs w/ my 5TB. no complaints!!
I am going to hold out with my 500gb +old 320gb 2.5 drive I had lying around until I get the Halo 1tb console. That all should hold me over for a little while
I added a 4TB drive...Thought I would be good for a while. I'll need another by by Spring
Would be easier if I could buy a ext HDD for my ps4 , just for me personally I keep thinking I'll end up breaking ps if I change HDD lol
There's a 2TB WD My Passport for $59 right now. That's almost half the price, but I'm sure you'd have to reformat it to work on the XB1. I've never used that portable drive before so I can't really tell you how well it works for the XB1.
I use a 2TB My Passport and a 6TB My Book drive. Both work without problems on my Xbox One. Also I just pre-ordered my Halo 5 special edition system and this hard drive would look amazing with it: http://wdc.com/en/products/... Even though it's way more expensive than your $59 drive, I want to buy it.
Looks nice! I spoke too soon because that $59 drive is already gone haha. Must have been a mistake or they had limited stock. Btw, I can't wait for that Halo 5 Xbox One!
Cool could use more space , like the color .
I'll stick with my 4 tb My Passport that I got for 99.99. A decent option though, for those who want an upgrade. Just keep an eye on the deals!
I need another 4TB... probably in time for Quantum Break...Sigh....
50 games ? i doubt it. Updates for a lot of games are massive in size these days. I would hate to go all digital, it would cost far too much to play games. Digital prices are too high and i don't fancy buying a bunch of HDD's every few months.
