which would you choose? looks like wd 4tb for 90ish and seagate 110$ for 5tb ST5000LM000, hate to make choices and in the past i have hated sg, wish i could find a usb toshiba that i can shuck but seems like most those drives have the usb header soldered on. Ideas / suggestions? i need 2, one for a laptop (that has a 2tb mechanical and 1tb nvme currently) and one for a nuc that only has a 1tb nvme,

/ edit those two drives might actually be to thick for the laptop and only work for the nuc .. ;(

For 2.5", only the Seagates still use a regular SATA drive connected to a SATA-USB adapter. This one 5TB for $90 still does. The smaller sizes use the regular 9mm vs that 5TB which is larger.
