2tb is on the small side. 4tb is still ok. but the 6tb is much more expensive
it's fast, and quiet. it uses a single high density platter, so it spins up from sleep very quickly. it is a great supplement drive in your system for your steam library, or backup of your primary drive. great price / capacity.
Good drive, bad price
