Go on... somebody must want to 'break the barrier' and sell these at £39.99.
Ebuyer or Amazon, I dare you!
#3
Fingers crossed the 2.5" drives drop to a similar price in a couple of years
#4
Plus delivery charge! - Should really put this in the title.

Got to add a few pounds for delivery as well, unless your total order is over £50 from Ebuyer.

Makes this one a better deal:

Same drive, same price (but no delivery charge) from Amazon.

Cheaper at Amazon! Cold.

mumbojumbo
I bought this for £53 last week. :(
This is the Caviar Green drive and has a variable spin speed between 5,400 and 7,200rpm.

That's not actually the case. Caviar Green drives spin at 5,400rpm all the time - this has been confirmed by acoustic analysis of the drive's motor noise.

so why do they claim this?

WD has never claimed Green series drives could vary their rotation speeds, if memory serves what they said was that not all models in the Green family would necessarily spin at the same speed (ie, some might be 5,400rpm, others 5,900, etc - although in practice they all seem to be 5,400). But some people misinterpreted that and the myth about Greens having variable spin speeds was born (not helped by some vendors making the same mistake and posting false specs for the drives).
#9
Who cares, its a nice quiet little drive and its fast enough so do it really matter?!?!?!? LOL
#10
How may people have suffered the "load cycle count" issue with these drives?
Given they are storage drives and not OS drives, I am suprised it is not more commonly come across, apart from a couple of NAS forums.

I wish I had known before a bought 2x2Tb!
