Hi. I’m looking for a 5TB or 6TB 2.5" drive. The only one I can find for sale anywhere is the Seagate ST5000LM000. But I see a 5-TB MyPassport WDBPKJ0050BBK for sale for significantly less than the price of the Seagate drive (the bare drive).
- Can I buy a 5TB bare 2.5" drive from WD? What drive is used in the MyPassport?
- Is it possible to remove the drive from the MyPassport and reformat and use it as a bare drive? I don’t care about the warranty. What I need to know is if the connectors are standard SATA.
A big thanks in advance.
