That to do with your boot device settings in bios? Maybe you can tell bios which drive to boot from?

Although I used a 20% code I get through work offers so while it should work like the rest I cannot confirm

Yeah, messed about in the bios this afternoon but with no joy. It’s no deal breaker tho as I only needed for back up. Thanks.
Have the older version for few years; bit noisy but very reliable; can vouch for this
I expect this is SMR, and this is bad news if you shuck it for a NAS.
Argh! Bought the WD 2TB MyPassport posted on here earlier. If I hadn't I'd deffo have gone for this one.

Thanks for sharing buddy. Missed this last week when posted. I picked up two for £102.00 with code. . cracking price for 6tb of storage. Heat from me.
Careful if you plan to shuck and install the drive into a NAS. This could be an SMR drive which in basic terms is just really bad for RAID 5, 6, etc.

The 8tb and above drives are CMR. WD RED 2, 4 and 6tb are SMR. Not sure about this one but I'm guessing SMR.
SIGN UP TO NEWSLETTER 10% off emailed to you in less than 5 mins making it £53.99

or topcashback has a 11.2% cashback but they are currently having tracking issues with Western Digital.

Take a risk on Topcashback and code (nothing to loose you may get it for £47.94 ) or just code!

You guys must be lucky, I've been waiting over a week for mine. UPS say it's lost by WD don't believe them.
I've just ordered this with a teacher discount for a total of £50.99. Seems like a very good price. Thanks S_Green!
if you have a "perks at work" account or similar you can get an additional 20% making this £47.99 and 8TB £124.79

Here's a list of SMR drives from WD

blog.westerndigital.com/wp-…pdf

No 3TB Blue on this list. The 6TB I got a while ago was the "EZRZ", so no SMR too. Be aware of the aggressive head parking of 8 seconds though. Your " Load_Cycle_Count" will increase very fast unless you prevent it with "ioping" for instance.

I'm avoiding the problem by buying 12TBs for now.
Assume this is ok to expand memory for a PS4, (apologies if that's been answered on another thread somewhere)?!

Nothing wrong with being extra safe, right?

Are the 3TB safe? Thanks

Good to hear, enjoy your storage responsibly
Does this work with the PS4
Can it be used as an add-on for Xbox One? I won't have to keep uninstalling games then.

any deals for the more portable ones?

although it needs powered so isnt ideal for ps4. A self powering version is less annoying.
Awesome deal ... thanks
