While it’s good to see external drives pitched not just for general purpose storage, it would have been nice to specifically say why their product stands out as a storage extension for gamers. Keeping in mind that Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB was tested on an older test system (and the fact that it’s a 4TB drive), it has more sequential transfer speeds.
But Seagate’s 4TB drive costs Rs. 20,000 IN even now, which is more than twice the price than the WD My Passport X. A 2TB, in general, is a lot of space. It’s going take time for people to consider an external solid state as a feasible option like a SanDisk Extreme 500 240GB (which is not yet sold in any Indian online retail sites) or even considering to get a USB 3.0 casing with an SSD of their choice. It goes without saying that at the price of more limited storage, you should get much better load times. If a gamer is loading the game from an external drive and records his game on the same drive, he will need a much quicker drive to keep up. It would be nice if this was more like a hybrid drive internally, with both the read and write caching enabled.
- Good Value
- Large Space
- 3-Year Warranty
- Could have been a lot quicker as it would have been more useful for those who load and record game from the same external drive
