Only just received, so an early review. The drive inside is enterprise grade with a high 7200 rpm so can be noisy for some people, but is quite fast. Make sure the drive is connected to a USB 3.0 port, normally marked with the "SS" superspeed logo which offer 10x the bandwidth the USB 2.0 ports. This can make a big difference.Great

This model's HDD is ST5000LM000, same as its previous portable models. So they have almost identical performance, too. Obviously ST5000LM000 is an SMR model with 5 disks and 15+mm height. So the portable drive is a bit heavy and large. SMR drives usually perform worse than PMR drives, so don't rely on them to storage your data. I

I cant comment on the longevity, but I've never had an issue with Seagates in this form factor so I'm not expecting any trouble. Worked out of the box for me, transfer speeds what you would expect for a SATA 3 mechanical drive and I can recommend it for either NTFS of exFAT formats depending on your needs.First 5TB drive I've owned, I'll

Great quality product, lots of room for all my files and then some. The compatibility for Windows and Mac is great addition, no need to reformat for Mac, with USB 3.0 makes everything fast. I have been and still using Seagate for many years, has not disappointed me yet. For a reliable portable drive, please consider this one, very happy

I have most of my data on my laptop but for travelling I carry a backup.These have been great for that purpose.They are not the fastest drive, but for the price and for my use they are 5 stars worth for sure.I own 2 drives of these, one is at my parents house, one I carry with

I wanted a reliable external hard drive with a 5TB capacity. This is what I have with the Seagate One Touch. It's solidly made, and excellent compared to lighter cheaper alternatives.I've been using computers and components since 1892. Seagate is a reliable brand. I know what I'm getting.Well before Amazon existed I've been using Seagate

I have been working with it for 1 week. It is quiet and light.The worst thing was the packaging by Amazon! Terrible! Amazon just put the box of the hard drive inside a normal package which could cause serious damages (if not so far!). No bubble plastic; no shock absorber, and with extra space inside the

Bought these to use for NAS storage. They're larger, so use more RAM obviously - makes read-write speeds a bit slower in a RAID scenario, but that wasn't a concern for me. They get the job done - lots of storage - small form factor - good price.NB: I haven't done this, but one of the reasons I stick with Seagate when getting a USB drive,

When I tested it with Hztest (which use 1k size file), USB 3.0, initially it achieved only 10MBs when writing. Then I rebooted my PC, then it got 126Mbps in writing 134 MBs in writing and 137 MBs in reading.It is faster when tested with larger files with CrystalDiskmark: reading sequential 136 MBs, 0.47MBs random 4k, writing: 128 MB/s

The drives are different. Double-check you know which one you're ordering. Sometimes clicking on a different SIZE means you actually are choosing a different DRIVE. I meant to buy a RAID drive (the one with the card reader), but clicked on a larger one and ended up with a Rugged. The product is fine and I'm using it, but it's such an

Nice looking and rugged feeling hard drive. Using it mainly to store 4K videos to be edited on a MacBook Pro. Despite the number and size of the 4K files - there was no lag in imports and exports to the LaCie. Very happy. The rubber grip makes it easier to handle without fear of dropping

Received the driver bundled with an extra USB-C cable. Great! Except... it doesn't work. I have a 2019 Macbook Pro so I would prefer to use it (the LaCie drive has a proprietary connection on the drive, and then the supplied cable is USB-A). Currently using an adapter on the USB-A cable as the USB-C one has a strange part deep inside the

You might be thinking, why so big?Backing up is a 'gunna' job. It's put into the 'later' basket for another day. Along comes this little beauty. "10TB Backup Plus Desk Hub - Mac & PC". Oodles of storage for all your your files in the one spot, plus a usb hub to add another hard drive, or whatever. Surely not!!Amazon gives value for

Was over $100 cheaper to order via amazon US than any place in Australia so im not disappointed, but as others have mentioned the product box was loose in the packing box, it would have been better for the drive to have a label stuck to the product box and shipped like that.Copying from my old Seagate USB 3 drive (plugged into the hub of

Edit April 2021: These models are now the WD80EDAZ variants, these are air filled and not helium. There are reports of these drives running at 7200rpm and not 5400rpm. They also run about 5c-10c hotter than their helium counterparts. If you don't plan on shucking these, it's ideal to put a fan on the enclosure to keep the drive cool as

Purchased 24-Feb-19. Inside I found the much desired WD100EMAZ-00WJTA0 ‘helium’ drive.Interestingly this drive is noticeably quieter in spin-up/on/read+write states than its 8TB RED cousin (WD80EFZX). Other considerations for those thinking about purchasing one will be the US power plug and unclear warranty coverage. Aus units have a

I got a WD120EMFZ not older WD120EMAZ for the shuckers out there that might care (reported by crystal disk info).I haven't opened this one but the design appears identical to the 8TB units I did shuck, as I'm using it for its intended purpose, as an external USB drive.

I bought this to use to extend the storage space on my PS4. It was easy to setup and use... just plugged it in and formatted it in the PS4 menu and it was ready to go within minutes.
