    Whichever drive you buy you will be able to configure the RGB LED lighting with Seagate's Toolkit software or other software that works and syncs with Razer Chroma lighting.
    Oh, goody. Does it, by any chance, default to "off"?

    Okay, I'm being snippy (again) and no. I'm no doubt not the intended buyer. I get that.

    Type-C port on the front, but Micro-B on the back? Are they really that cheap?

    USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps) Micro-B interface.
    Oh they must have got a special deal to lower the cost of making the drive. Why use a horrible connector when USB-C is so simple even my mum can use it without getting it wrong? What a horrible end user experience.

    Not worth the hassle, Seagtae are a joke.

    Terrible reliability (that's a genuine understatement, they'll fail garuanteed)

    If you want to claim on the warranty, they'll deny they've received it, despite providing proof they have received it.

    All based on first hand evidence of myself and close friends and family. Never mind the huge amount of dissatisfied users posting online.

    The 2tb gaming hard drive is £293 on EBuyer, which is a loooong way from the quoted $110 MSRP. What a rip off.

    I don't trust seagate as a consumer brand.

    Ouch. I've just purchased my 4th WD BLUE 4TB SSD which cost £359 (£299 excl.VAT).

    I still don't know what a "gaming hard drive" is. Did anyone ever find an answer?

    Seems to be the same as any other "gaming" device. Add lights / a colour scheme / the word "gaming", then charge more than double.

    That easy the FireCuda Gaming Hard Drive are most SMR in 2.5" now as 3.5" it could be either way
    https://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-drives/cmr-smr-list/
    One year warranty piss off seagate it should be min of two years warranty with retail product plus free three years access to Rescue Data Recovery services.
    Hopelee the 3.5" model with 8TB and 16TB are IronWolf CMR drive
