I am finally starting to lose real estate on the internal HDD of the One and am glad that there are current conversations going on regarding external HDD's.
I've used external back up devices before, but have never really understood or cared to know what makes one superior to another, so I am in the process of educating myself.
I'm looking at a Seagate Backup Plus 5tb drive for $159. It has an external power supply and I'm ok with that. What I would like some feed back on is the read/write speed of this thing. From what I have read, this drive seems kind of pokey. Does it fair better or worse than the internal HDD of the Xbox One? I'm unable find any comparative info.
I am looking for storage capacity and price as driving factors of my purchase, but do not want to end up purchasing something that is gimped from the start. I am not willing to pay the price of an SSD at this point in time. The Seagate Backup Plus Fast is a close runner up, but is a little more than I care to spend on an HDD right now.
