To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this for my son’s PS4 and it worked !! My brother did all the installation and set up. So about the thickness I don’t know because it was my brother who opened it . But my son is back playing with his friends online :)
Bon disque dur. Ajouté en complément dans un ordinateur pour stockage. Pas de soucis pour le moment. Bruit très correct, le prix également lors de mon achat. Les performances semblent bonne aussi. Je recommande ce produit.
In light of the non-reporting of SMR drives from hard drive makers, its becoming more and more apparent as to why they were not more transparent about the technology. It's because SMR or Shingled Magnetic Recording sucks. It is buggy, slow, and causes a lot of read/write errors where Windows was constantly running check/repair disk. I only expect this kind of hard drive behavior from an old and tired hard drive, not a new one out of the box. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this hard drive, or any of the latest SMR hard drives that Seagate, Western Digital, or Toshiba are currently releasing. Do some research, and buy certified non SMR or buy from older tech inventory. No matter what they say or what you hear, no matter what your intended plan of use is, save yourself the frustration and don't buy this or any other SMR hard drive. As for this particular hard drive, I've nothing but buyer's remorse for it. I cannot return it, because I've had it too long, and I really can't trust it. I was using it as a clone drive to support multiple computers, and it sucked at doing that job. So I put in a laptop to be a system drive, it sucked at doing that too. Windows installation takes a long time to complete, sometimes driver installs would take a time to install, and then writing anything at all just takes a long time. Reading isn't bad, but then some document files get corrupt or Checkdisk goes ape and wants to repair the drive. I had a very large spreadsheet that Excel reported was corrupt and needed repairs. When Excel finally opened the dang file, several "sheets" were missing from the spreadsheet altogether. So now this drive is unreliable, easily corruptible, and untrustworthy. Researching about SMR technology led me to the conclusion that SMR tech just isn't a good idea.
