Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not the Xbox-branded Seagate 2TB external hard drive is worth purchasing for use with the Xbox One.
Nope, not when you can get a Western Digital 2tb for $89.
you can get one for $79 at Amazon/Newegg
Nope is right. When you can get 2TB drives from multiple brands for cheaper. Be it Seagate, Western Digital, or what have with my Toshiba. I had a Western Digital MyBook 1 TB back when those shortly first came out. Only for it to crap out just a month out of Warranty. Have had a 500GB Toshiba that my sister got me for Christmas 2 years ago and it still works. So I went with a 2 TB Toshiba. All for data back up not for Xbox or gaming though.
Or a 5tb for $130
I got a Seagate 2TB HDD, exactly the same only without the Xbox branding for £70 so I'd go for that instead.
or when this story was already posted last week? I got my 3GB external for $105 on sale at Gamestop...any officially licensed product has always been historically more expensive.
I got a wd 4tb for around 130 so I dont think this is worth it. They should have priced it at 79.99
There are other cheaper options out there so of course not.
Maybe if it was at least black to match the Xbox, never mind every other HD in the world is black and cheaper.
I got a WD 4TB for $120 on sale so you tell me if it's worth it. Depends on how many games you plan to buy I guess.
The drive on a price per storage amount it is not worth it. If you want an external drive and it doesn't have to be portable you can go up to 3.5inch, desktop sized hard drive with external enclosure and 4tb for $100-$120. That is hard drive, enclosure, and power supply.
the only way this is worth it is if you are in the market for a "green" external drive.
Seagate makes the crappiest drives ever. Even back in the early 90's people knew to avoid the seagates. People would always come to me or my dad to fix their computers, or switch out components and almost everybody that had a Seagate had problems.
Thanks guys just got it on Amazon I'm hoping it works as advertised. I searched for a barebone internal one but it was more expensive than the cased one. Caught me off guard.
