Are seagates reliable these days? 5tb is great if there's good quality.

  If you're going to use the drive heavily, do yourself a favor and pull it out of the case and put it in something with better ventilation.  These things fail because people try to push a pant-load of data onto the drive all at once, and the case has no fan or anything else to try to keep the drive cool.

I'll probably pick up several and throw them in a NAS with plenty of airflow.

I plan to use it for my Xbox One so even if it fails, I can just re-download the game. No biggie.

Well shoot... I was just about to purchase as a place to store all my backup data, but not after reading the Newegg reviews.

  Would be very wary in storing 5tbs of data on seagate drives.
