Seagate Gaming FireCuda 2TB Gaming Hard Drive Review

Seagate Gaming recently refreshed and released their new FireCuda Hard Drives and FireCuda Gaming Hub! The Gaming Hard Drive is what I have in the office at the moment, which comes in 1TB, 2TB and 5TB variants. However, if you wanted to super-size that, the Gaming Hub offers 8TB and 16TB variants! Games now take up a hilarious amount of space. I have a MicroSD card with literally thousands of classic games on it for the Raspberry Pi 4. However, a single install of the latest Call of Duty takes up the same amount of space! Throw in games like Flight Simulator 2020 and its updates since its release, Final Fantasy XV, Hitman 2, Destiny 2, to name but a few. These games are all 150-250GB each. Throw in huge libraries of Xbox or PlayStation games or a load of movies and music, too… where the hell do you put it all?

FireCuda 2TB Gaming Hard Drive

Chances are you have a fast SSD as either your main boot drive or your main gaming drive. Chances are it’s not 2TB or larger, as SSDs can get expensive pretty quickly if you want large capacities as well as the latest speeds and features. Furthermore, we don’t all have ultra-fast fibre broadband either, so downloading 200GB+ can be quite daunting to many. The benefit of an external drive, such as the FireCuda 2TB Gaming Hard Drive (STKL2000400) I’m reviewing right now, means you can put all your less critical installs on that drive and load them from there. Alternatively, you can back up your games to the drive to make room on your faster SSD, saving you from downloading them entirely every time you want to re-install them. Either way, there’s a lot of options to play around with.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
