Whatever your warranty, if the disk fails, your data is gone - the data is normally more worthwhile than the physical disk and hard disks aren't infallible.

No proof that a disk that's new or refurb is better. And frankly, your original comment is facetious and unnecessary, if you want to vote cold then fine, but don't try and paint it as if you speak for the entire community because you really don't.

Heat! Also if you pick the 4TB one it is cheaper than the 3TB option by about a quid.

Of course: they are always cheaper when there is no stock...

There was some in stock for me when I replied.
What makes ultra, ultra? Is it the cloud software?
Great price thanks OP.

Just keep in mind these don't arrive in retail packaging as per the picture. Packaging is fine, just plain brown boxes. It's the drive that matters afterall.

Heat added ;-)

Hi it's ultra as it's not a Blue Passport.

You won't need a visa if you take it into Europe in a couple of years time.
Just got one. Thanks for posting
Can these be used on. PlayStation 3 and 4 or do they need formatted??

Just a USB connection. I've never bought a console specific drive and never had issues.
Rather annoyed that the plex discount code did nothing
Can this be connected to the PS4 for extra storage? If so is it simple to do?

Just plug it in and set it up through the settings on the PS4. Had a 1TB working that way for over a year and not a single problem.

It'll only be usable on the PS4 though unless you reformat it for PC use.
No stock
Every time a second hand drive "offer" is posted, I'll dutifully vote it down.

Anyone who buys a refurbished hard drive either really knows what they are doing (in which case they won't rely on votes) or doesn't have a clue in which case the more warnings the better.

The clue is in the fact that WD isn't prepared to offer a decent warranty.
I’m just looking for a cheap drive for the Xbox one. Can’t seem to add anything to the basket??
"Notify when available"
Will this work as a hard drive for an LG TV?

Yes, out of stock again. Unfortunately for me
The word is 'lose'. Not 'loose'. They mean very different things.

How do so many people not know this?

Can I use it on both PS4 and PS3???
I will pay full price as I don't like the colour wild berry.

The PS3 didn't support external storage the last time I used one. I doubt that has changed.
Sold Out, But I just posted a few more from the site....

By all means, voice your warnings. But I disagree - I have ordered three drives from the WD Refurb store and all three are still going strong. Granted, I trust them less than a "new" drive so they are not my "primary" drives with my important data on them, but for what I use them for (drives for my Xbox One, PS4 and NAS), they are working fine - and at a fraction of the cost.

All drives are susceptible to failure at any time, and yes the warranty here is a little stingy... but thats the gamble you take - new drive, better warranty, costs more, or refurb, no warranty but much cheaper price. Its up to the individual.

If they offered the same warranty as new drives why would anyone buy a new one?

Cant be any worse than buying a new HD from Seagate.
Died just after warranty expired along with all my precious memories! Ive had a Mybook from western digital for about 15 years now and still going strong. I would buy a recertified drive from WD no problem, especially for use as a games console drive. Bargain!

Well that was kind of my point, your data is the most precious part and hard disks are going to fail at any time, a new (as you noted) or refurb isn't any more or less likely to fail so why not take the saving - the warranty doesn't protect against data loss...
NO stock.

A one year warranty, rather than a pathetic six months, would not in any way, shape or form undermine the warranty offered with new products (many of which have two or three year warranty cover).

The warranty is a statement of WD's willingness to stand behind its product.

Buying a second hand drive when the biggest cause of failure for consumer hard drives is mechanical rather than electronic failure, is at best a questionable "deal".
