My Book 4TB (Recertified) for £74.99 (£19/TB) from Western Digital

Found 8th May 2016
At less than £19 per TB, a great deal. I bought a new one (5TB) and removed HDD for internal (PC) use.

If you intend to use the HDD in a PC then note these usually come with WD greens so make sure you use utility to change when heads are parked otherwise they will wear out quickly.

Recertified means customer returns or repairs returned to a new like condition and comes with 6 months warranty.

Other deals include:
5TB WD Desktop Elements for £94.99 (£19/TB)
6TB My Book for £129.99 (£21/TB)
3TB My Book for £54.99 (£19/TB)

Excellent price.
I bought a WD 250 Gig drive in the noughties for about 50 quid. Full of old porn now, time for an upgrade:p

Is that the sound of the drives dying, or the sound of you clicking deal, add to cart, checkout?
The 3TB is better value with the £10 off coupon if you buy 2.(backup of each other)
Its a horrible expensive time consuming sound, the sooner SSD`s become old tech the happier I will be.
But crystal clear is a long way off yet.
Can recommend WD re-certified (A 3TB WD mycloud for £67.99 a few weeks ago and seemed like new to me....)

I suppose if you need mass storage of stuff thats not important then its good

A friend used to buy cheap hard drives, and some work ok but some eventually failed.

You get a 20% coupon by email after a purchase and its valid for 30 days. So if buying 2 drives buy 1 then use the coupon for the second. With this coupon its often the same price or cheaper to buy new drives rather than from the outlet. E.g. the My Book Elements 5TB is £95 either way.

Was just about to make a similar comment to @zebrum about the 20% coupon. Very handy.
Got a 4TB My Cloud NAS for £95 which is a steal I think. Also very quiet.
Anyone know if they use WD Red's in the My Clouds? I haven't tried taking the casing off yet.
I have another 2 bay NAS which needs an extra drive so figured I might get another of the refurbs and strip it if it has a Red in it.

Safe in the knowledge they guarantee the product for 6 months.... Quick, take my money and my precious files.
bought some a while ago, drives report fine still. housings were useless though, the interface went literally bang on one. lots if refurbs about because their data to USB interface seems to be a poor design.

I never got one after purchasing some hard drives so i guess it's not guaranteed.
I got 3x of these during the last sale to pluck the drives for a NAS (after running WDIDLE!). The drives had various dates of manufacture, from memory two were from Feb 2016, one was Dec 2015, the label was a recertified one though, but the drive looked very fresh and untouched. They were fairly easy to remove, the inner piece needs to be levered out at the top and bottom of the book's 'spine', then the inner piece slides out. Be careful because the drive is only held in by rubber bumpers.

He did.
In fact he made two. :-)
you'd have to be pretty brave buying WD, especially recertified! cold, its not a great price either

Same here - unit was brand new, although in a brown box. Assumed to be surplus replacement stock for warranty claims. Would certainly buy again.

In my experience WD drives are much more reliable than Seagate ...never had a WD fail but had 3 or 4 Seagates fail

Check the SMART status and you'll see how many hours the disk has been running for. They are def getting rid of the old returned Green drives. Buy a new one and you get the rebranded Blue new drives.

Oops just checking my emails and I got the code 8 days after the order. If you want exact dates and times just let me know. Maybe you didn't want to wait that long anyway?

Edited by: "malhal" 9th May 2016
Got the deal last month for the 3tb version, best bang for buck including code £43.99 delivered, purchased two, no problems at all with both drives, spin time on both units was less than a hour. Also for the recertified haters, I have had a recertified Buffalo NAS for over 5 years from a deal on here, been running 24/7 and still no problems with it. The speeds I get copying files from ssd to usb3 is approx 125mbps, constant.

well sure, seagates are the worst by far, but there other brands - hitachi/toshiba are better (and for now they haven't let wdc take over manufacturing)

thanks for checking. i got a couple of 6tb drives at £130 so could have saved £26 potentially but the last time i got a couple they sold out pretty quick so they may not be there in 8 days. it was march 2015 when i last got a pair and i never got a code then so it's maybe only sometimes they do it. roughtly when did you get a code, weeks or months or just days ago? no need to check for exact date. it was maybe an offer just at that time. the reason i got 2 is i'm moving from 4tb as i'm running out of space and one drive is the backup so having one without a same size backup makes things a bit akward. cheers anyways

doh - ta
Bought 4TB drive from this deal last month, the drive was disconnecting intermittently. Unrecoverable bad sectors + Not passing Extended SMART test in WD's own Lifeguard software. Got full refund. Not saying drive you'll buy will be the same, but what if ?
Banned
Be forewarned people i ordered a re certified drive TWO WEEKS ago and they still haven't even shipped it I've even contacted them twice after being told it could take a week, seems the people who are running WD's store don't care much. Thought it was worth mentioning as two weeks and its not even been shipped is ridiculous.
