Trustable brand, only 450 GB usable though.

Cheap platter for excess storage. I’ve got an NAS, too, so this is really just for overflow storage. It's a hard drive. It works.

Works as expected, never gave me any problems. Seems to be running fine, without any clicks or signs of failure.

I was kinda surprised when I saw the old PC came with two of these, I have NO idea how old they are and for that, will be getting an SSD and maybe a new 1TB HDD next year. But these work good, havent had any problems.
