Plus £5.50 shipping
There doesn’t seem to be away to avoid postage charge (I have prime) and the currency conversion rates are not that good to give £148
Used this for 10mins and already had an airflow error in SMART. Avoid Seagate IMO.

Airflow is basically the operating temperature of the device. If you want to check the SMART values for your own drive, then I'd recommend HDTunePro or HD Sentinel. Keep an eye on 'Reallocated Sector Count' or 'Uncorrectable Error Count', as these normally indicate a failing drive.

Back the drive up and then run a full surface scan.
I managed to get the data back from a 3TB Barracuda using EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.




Barracuda inside this deal?

Not quite the prime day 119.99 deal. Very good though.
£161 with postage but still makes it £20 cheaper than amazon uk.
I am looking for a backup drive. My experience over the years is that every manufacturer has it's problems. Many times I've sworn off WD only to have a Seagate fail or vice versa. One of the big data centers did a study and found that Hitachi had a slight superiority to other drives. But I think one of the other manufacturers bought out Hitachi after that.

Then you have problems with the housing. Western Digital encrypt the damn drive. If the housing breaks, even the drive is good, your data is gone!
