Not bad at all for the 2TB Model, there's also the 3TB My Bookat £52.99 HERE. Both are free delivery. Had my eye on the pricing at WD over the last few days, as they've have some really good price. Lot's of the bigger capacity HDDs went pretty quickly, but just seen that these have both dropped.

Word of warning: the official website of WD is not tun by WD buy a dodgy company based in Dublin who refuse to provide an RMA or refund when their drives are DOA.

Usb only. Most routers have a usb 3.0 so you can access storage. Asus are particularly good, and can be used like a Nas in this configuration.

Yes. Use it with an Asus router. Add net work drive on each pc.

Why not. 2tb is mine thanks

This or the elements version?

Thanks OP, ordered the 2TB for my Xbox One S

These any good with CCTV?

No mention of warranty with trhe 2tb one?

3TB showed OOS for me over 1hr ago.. Got the 2TB one though. Thanks

Both are OOS.

Just ordered the My Book 3TB £52.99. I’ve been looking for a great deal like this for a while, cheers!

As much as it's a great deal I just want to mention my experience, I've had one of the 1tb recertified ones and it disconnects on its own all the time and the streaming speed seems to be very hit and miss compared to my qnap that has replaced it. Personally I wouldn't touch them again but you might have more luck than me

What does "recertified" actually mean when it comes to hard drives? Is it a unit that was originally returned as faulty and then been given a refurb?

Got mine last time and it came from Holland.

Nope not at all, the constant read write will kill the drive off. There are special media drives for dvrs.

All out of stock now, has anyone else found alternatives yet?

I suggested that the other day and got into a massive debate, but I would agree with you entirely. There are ‘AV-grade’ disks designed explicitly for CCTV-type applications, not these

Only £61.99 for the 4TB one. Pity it's not in stock. Cracking deal if you got one, though.

Mine's on it's way from Holland ... Which is nice.

My 3TB version just arrived. If you just want to use it as a backup drive dont install any of the WD software.
What I did was format it to ntfs in windows as it is a much better file system allowing for very large file sizes like my 40gb macrium reflect backup files of my PC. Also just disable the WD SES device in device manager - you wont get any lights working on the drive - but you know when it's working so it's not necessary.

So far I am v happy with it - am getting 90MB/second write times - just copied 50GB of data to it in 10 minutes but my mobo is quite old maybe yours is faster.

Pretty much the same here with my 2TB. It's gonna just be non essential external storage. Formatted to NTFS and about to do some file speed tests on the Mac.

100 - 160 MBps ( average around 130MBps ) ... I'm happy with that.

All good so far ;-)

One more thing in Windows - open device manager - hard disks - select MYBook - policies and change the selection to BETTER PERFORMANCE !!!!!!!!!

My 3tb just arrived also. 31mbs

My 3tb just arrived also. 31mbs



In WIndows (albeit on a USB 2.0 laptop) it eventually drops to 25MBps - the same as my exisiting MyBook external drive.

This is regardless of the policy applied in device manager.

Like I said though, on a USB 3.0 MBP with NTFS enabled it literally flies so I can't really blame the drive.
