    I would like to add here, that my order is taking a-g-e-s to turn up, if that is a factor for anyone thinking of buying. So I can only assume this is par for the course on WD from Ireland. Its been over 2weeks, and only one half of my order dispatched. Will update when i know more about the actual drives that arrive.

    Anyone got theirs? especially those planning to shuck it
    Avatar
    Yep - just running testing now. It will take DAYS.

    a) took THREE WEEKS for these to turn up at all, and little comms about it. Still waiting on one half of my order pending dispatch.
    b) The 10TB drives contained a WD WHITE LABEL drive. (WD100EMAZ), apparently this is CMR but has mixed workload speeds which are not amazing. I am check more on this, as it was just a post on Reddit and I beleive firmware may have changed.
    c) Appears the drive had 2hrs and 3hrs runtime prior to refurb/during refurb on smart data. No bad blocks or issues so far.

    I need to expand my Plex server. Can I crack this open and find a normal 3.5 sata drive ?
    Avatar
    Yes but that voids all warranty. My failed after 9 months and WD wouldn't replace it.

    1TB works out about £13 ... So about on average 75% cheaper than an ssd .....
    That's waay too pricey for HDD (edited)

    Dont know how youq get there. Disks are rarely lower than £15/tb

    How much would it cost to run this and how does it compare to 10tb online storage costs wise?
    Avatar
    Local storage is always cheaper in the long run… usual buy back is in months not years

    This or the 14tb

    14TB deal is better £/TB

    I wasnt sure what EMEA Recertified but found out its refurbished its kinda putting me off, just lost a external after two years so whos to say this hasnt been heavily used already
    Avatar
    Just as a side note, EMEA is Europe, Middle East & Africa, but yeah… re-certified is effectively refurbished.

    One of the HDDs in my CCTV desktop has just failed so thought I’d get this but it’s out of stock at the mo.

    With cctv you’re much better to buy cctv hard drives, a bit more expensive, but when they last so much longer it’ll work out cheaper
