Use code WDSTORECPN to get it for £339 :). Now to justify it to the better half...

What do they mean by recertified?

Nice looking piece of kit this.

Use code 3wotma2bd for more money off £70 worth !!!

Tested and determined to meet WD’s stringent quality standards. Six month limited warranty.

I assume this won't transcode Plex?

Stringent quality standards and yet they only warranty it for 6 months...

Thanks for the info, presumed as much. I almost exclusively watch at home on an LG app which seems to leave the transcoding to my PC, presumably the client doesn't have enough grunt.

I used to smack talk these WD deals because I had a string of failed drives and data loss, however it seems they are working hard to improve.

Correct.

If you don't want to use your PC and want a cheap set up, get a small form factor device with a decent cpu and attach a DAS to it.

Something like a mac mini with a DAS would have low power draw and be powerful enough to transcode (its the cpu that does all the work for plex).

What drives does it come with? 4x4TB in RAID5 or something?

​4х3tb red drives

Choose RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 or select from spanning and JBOD modes
So RAID 0 striped gives you all 12 TB (One big disk across all 4 or JBOD)
RAID 1 gives you 6TB (same data duplicated across 2 volumes)
RAID 5 gives you 9TB (you loose 1 disk to parity)
RAID 10 Gives you 6TB but a bit faster (mirroring and striping)

This seems good value for a NAS drive of that capacity.

All gone by the looks of it

AND NO STOCK NOW!!

Nice wish I seen it sooner need more TB
Edited by: "Dizy" 24th Jan

Would've liked one of these. Are all the drives OEM inside?

I'm a videographer and always running out of space. I ordered one.

8TB still available

I ordered this when I received the email at around 7.30am, just didn't get the time to post the deal up on here. How simple is it to have additional 3tb red drives and swap them over when you need more storage space?

Those are new drives though and not recertified/used.
The rates are still worrying. I try to stick to HGST ultras if at all possible even though I haven't seen any deals on them for a while now.

Pottery tutorials...:p

I just received mine today. the drives don't have a red label, they have black and white recertified labels on them that state '3TB Recertified SATA / 64MB CACHE - WD30EFRX - NASware 3.0'. What drives are these?

They are red drives. just different label because they been recertified. so people can't sell them on as new.
