Huge amount of space but a little noisy
29 April 2019
I received this product, came with a US plug as purchased from Amazon WorldWide, but that was OK as I had converters.
This was purchased to replace a failing drive for my Xbox One X. Connected up with the old drive and transferred my data across.
To my surprise this drive is actually quite noisy (sounds more like the older HDD's of yesteryear) as there was continual clicking. After a little research it seems that noise is standard for the 8TB drives, these are running the newer helium internal configuration, which reduces heat, but seems to make them noisier.
This wouldn't be an issue if it was connected to a PC intermittently for backup/storage, but since the device is in my Lounge room and is always on, you notice the noise. I have had to move it behind other things to quieten it.
I would highly recommend this drive for the shear space on it, as long as you don't mind a little clicking noise while in use.
Works perfectly well as external drive for Xbox One, would definitely recommend. Only used 55% of drive so far.
4 Star, would have got 5 if not for the noise.
