Any good deals on HDD ?

On my last few GB on my stock of HDD, missed few deals lately but struggling to find any reasonably priced ones. I need this purely for storage so the criteria is cheapest £/TB. Thanks Read More

Yeah, you need a few more details like drive size 2.5" or 3.5" and what are you using the drive for, NAS drive or Gaming ?

As indicated I need this for bulk storage so the only criteria is that it is the cheapest in terms of £/TB. Clearly 3.5" will be cheaper than the 2.5" portable ones and also happy to go for the recertified ones.

Both drives are re-certs but you get what you pay for to be fair and it depends on how important the data is.

Rate wise it is not that great to go for re-certified as in the £20/TB range you should be getting new drives of higher capacity.

Because I could not find any recent deals, I asked a question. If you do not have anything to post, why even respond to my question.

I said when you can buy new drives at around £20/TB these pulled 2TB drives which have been used for at least 3 years would not be a sensible buy. I would go for recertified drives which are better than these second hand drives and also reviews of Aria warranty are not that great.

Re-cert drives are pulled drives that are checked. What did you think re-cert meant ?

Only manufacturers can re-certify drives whereas pulled drives are merely second hand drives (used for almost its entire lifespan) which are data wiped. WD recertified are much more reliable compared to these Aria ones - and that too if it had been at reasonable prices I would have gone for it. With delivery charge added, it is not worth going for.
