TMI!
+ £7 delivery...
If these were new, then it would be a pretty average deal. Refurbished makes it stone cold unfortunately. My opinion only obviously.
Not good customer service at all, had one and lost all data, within a month, poor buy new not recertified!!!!!
I've got unopen toshiba 3tb and when asked 65 for it I thought it was too much! These are 2tb and refurbs and 57? I 'm not too conviced..
WD seem to have lost the plot with re-certified drives recently.

They have become too close to new retail pricing to be the value they once were.

I was interested in the 1TB, so for me no deal, as with delivery is £42-£45. Forr £40+ I can get a new one. Perhaps a good deal for those who want 2TB and above.

Yeah you're right no bargain on the 1TB and not too sure on the 2TB either....

the last 1tb drive I bought cost £25 new, so this is a terrible deal. for the record it was this drive I got for £25.

and for a 2tb drive, its still terrible. I cant believe that this has actually managed to generate some heat.

Completely agree. Did not find a new 1TB for £25 but found several new ones for £35-40. Decent brands. For me, this price is a normal price, but not for a refurbished one.
So these drives have already failed once?

4TB's come up new on Eu amazon sites for 99 euros now and then. JFYI
The 'part worn tyres' of the computer world.
Ah...recertified, the new phrase for 2nd hand Not something I'd consider for a HDD tbh. Prices are OK, but not for me.
How many of these drives are being sent back to need recertifying? They're always listed on here.

Do people not worry that they might be buying something with a high failure rate?

I know people argue that these drives are mostly unused and simply a case of being unwanted purchases, but that can't be the majority. There must be a lot of data loss and angry people getting their money back.
That is heliish quick for refurbished units to come on the market. Didn't WD refresh their entire range only a matter of months ago? Which poses questions. If these are new refreshed units which have gone faulty already, the isn't that a damning indication of how poor they are? Or, if they are old drives repackaged, then the fact they had enough them dangling around to go the expense of retrofitting them into the new style cases is pretty damning as well
The 4TB blacks which were £47.99 are now £54.99

They must have a high fail rate.
Does the 2tb drive fit internally in a PS4 Pro?
Referb hdd drives is about as exciting an offer as cheap flights on a plane with dodgy engines... you just wouldn’t take the risk

Nope, these drives are soldered inside where the sata connection is.

Thanks for this info. Can you recommend another drive that would be suitable? Preferably portable caddy as I would reuse it with a spare drive.

This if you can open up the caddy without damaging...

However I'd just get this for PS4 (for internal)

Has ANYONE purchased these recertified drives that can give an unbiased opinion of if these are worth it or not?
I'm interested in the 4tb's and just stick non-essential media on it, but surely there must be some HUKDers who've bought this and can vouch for them...
