If they are confident in their "recertified" rejects, why only 6 MONTH warranty and not the standard 3 YEARS?
4/6 of the price - 1/6 of the warranty?

I have no idea why anyone buys a hard drive that has most likely been returned because its faulty and then has a 6 month warranty compared to 2 or 3 year warranty for potentially 40 quid more.

The extra for postage convinced me to go for the 4Tb one. :)

I got the 6tb certificated mycloud (I posted the deal a couple of months ago) - I've had absolutely no issues connecting to mycloud, but others have and returned them

I wouldn't store any data on this rubbish. They would not last even 6 months. Even if you got receipt nothing will help if you lose your data....

I doubt that very much because you can log into your WD account with your email address and password (I forgot my password and had to reset it via email). Once in your account click on My Order History and there should be your order history. Your telling porkies again.

You'll also notice they don't do internal recertified drives.

There is a reason for that. External drives on average are subjected to a lighter workload. They are hoping that you only use it now and then, so by the time you discover it's riddled with bad sectors the warranty has expired.

If you buy one of these - and I advise against it - make sure to stress test it while it is under warranty. Zero-fill it multiple times to test all the platter surfaces. Don't just buy it and put a few GB on it here and there because if it's defective you might not find out until too late.

The tin foil hats are out boys.

Shame about the warranty but if it was 2-3 years then why would you ever buy a new drive?

Also if you lose data cause a drive dies then that is your own fault. You should be backing up - always.

Try reading it again, you should see your question was somewhat misguided.

Grabbed myself a My Passport Ultra 2TB Red (Recertified) from a deal on this site, this was April 2015. Never had a problem. Also, a friend sold me used WD passport back in Uni in 2010. It's still going strong.

Funny note, he sold me his WD for £50 because my £130 LaCie "rugged" I had bought for Uni projects had crapped out on me multiple times (and lost precious files... weep).

hmmmm?

Looks like the 2TB ones are out of stock :(

So these drives were faulty ones, faulty soon after they were purchased. they were returned. The company decides to resell these proven faulty drives and someone buys them for a for a few pounds less than a brand new one? What makes people behave like this?

The worst most unreliable drives go into these units with very high failure rates, this is before they are returned as faulty and recertified.

Does anyone know what speed the My Book Hard drives are? I plan to get a Scorpio when it launches, and from the sounds of it, with the 4K textures I might need a faster Hard drive than the typical 5200rpm found in portable hard drives. Though maybe I should wait till E3 and see what's confirmed.

yes and people also add heat to the deal lol even when there is ridiculous £20 delivery charge for a returned, beat up faulty drive.
it's sometimes crazy how people vote here

What reasons did they provide for refusal - surely if there is a 6 month limited warranty that should be provided ? You can use chargeback if you used a Credit Card for the transaction.

I added the detail to my post buddy. I replied with never again and that stands, 30 days is worthless to me. Clearly the device is not up to being a backup device if it has a lifespan of 30 days
