Wasn't it cheaper than this before? I'm sure it was £54?!?!
This is a very good price for a 4tb drive.

Black is 54 - which is now conveniently OOS.

It comes in and out of stock all the time. I would hang fire and sign up to be notified when it comes in stock.

Good luck with that. You'll have more chance of being notified in time if you just look at the product page once a week. They don't notify quickly enough.
got a blue one, thanks alot op!

No point, you have to check it yourself. I've signed up and never received an email ever. HUKD notifications is better than relying on WD to send you an email.
What does the recertified mean? "Tested and determined to meet WD’s stringent quality standards. Six month limited warranty." Are they returns or were faulty and fixed?


Strange, I get notifications all the time. I bought it a few times and then cancelled because they were just impulse buys

Thanks. Does that mean these could potentially have higher failure rates?

yes …yes https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/4tb-my-passport-ultra-recertified-5699-western-digital-2817455 a long time ago but there were only a few in stock


Was in stock yesterday, but unless you're getting push notifications from your email stock alert you'll likely miss it.

Probably better to save yourself the hassle and just get one now if you're in need.

No, its never a new drive that has been returned unopened. Its generally a faulty or repaired drive as recertified drives has different labels on them as shown here:

Excellent price. I fitted a WD recertified 2.5 hdd to my cousins laptop more than 4 years ago and iit gets heavy usage and is still going strong.
I wonder if WD could re-verify my Passport Ultra - the one that died just as I was about to copy over all of the data onto a new computer. The have a propitiatory fitting and security features so it can't be removed from the case and put into a new caddy. It will cost approx £400 to have my data recovered - if it is recoverable. From the reviews on the web, the problem that I have is common. I will not buy WD again.
Oos
oos
DAMN IT missed it AGAIN
Grabbed one in blue. What are the chances of it getting delivered in time for Christmas?

If it's been returned unopened it can be re-sold as new.

The reason I do a full back up including OS ...the full lot ...every week to an external harddrive....coincidently a 4TB WD recertified one.

I had an internal HD (a seagate) fail once and had to reinstall everything which is a pain...OS/drivers/updates etc and lost some stuff.

I back up to the external HD which is then unplugged so not spinning all the time like an internal one...only used for backups so only gets little use.

I have never had a WD drive fail ..and only that 1 seagate so I dont think there is much difference in reliabilty but will prob stick to WD ...flip of a coin really make wise

I can't - I am still looking for a reliable brand but until then, I am backing up key data to the cloud.

Thanks, I was mistaken thought they're not allowed to resell as new as I figured even if unopened they would open and test it.
