I have been looking for one of these for a while. I know a slightly cheaper version has been posted, but that model doesn't have the connectivity of this.

Use a fee-free card to get it at this price. Otherwise works out to around £143 with amazon's own converter. Sold by amazon.com; so will need an adapter to plug into your UK wall socket.

Also it is good to know that you wont be charged any extra import fees as all the customs paperwork is dealt with by Amazon. I have purchased many items from amazon.com and have never had any issue with customs/import fees.

Mastercard currency converter.

Interestingly if you buy via amazon.co.uk and use the Amazon converter, it works out a bit cheaper @ £140.69. For those that don't want to use the Amazon.com website. Link

And since it's a Seagate I would worry
I doubt there will be any warranty with seagate if it goes wrong and it probably will so you will need to return it to America. Im affraid its cold.

Cheaper version what are you talking about this is the cheapest you can pick up a 8tb drive but if you have any sense at all you wont take the drives out as you will have no warranty at all when they fail and its seagate so they will go wrong. To fill up a 8tb and have it fail is a nightmare if you need storage like that get WD Reds not some cheap drives butchered from a caddy.

is it possible to rip the hard drive out and install it into a computer?

read the first line of the OP's post

as for no sense, how do you expect me to fit umpteen drives inside a pc case and make them work without taking them out the caddy?

if a drive fails, who wants to send 8tb of their data to somewhere you don't know, where who knows how many people you don't know can access it?

it's far cheaper to get drives like this that pay for internal drives, especially if you are doubling your data by backing up properly. i've had very few drives fail on me with decades of high volume use. you can buy and do what you want with your drives and i'll do what i want with mine

In the past 15 years, I have had one drive fail on me. That was because I dropped the laptop as it was working. Hard drive failure is something you plan for by backing up your data. Scaring others about it only serves the purpose of driving the mass hysteria. Now I speak of this as a normal consumer with 3 laptops and 1 desktop at home. Of course you will get the professionals talking about drive failures, because they see so many more units and they get used/hammered a lot more in a workplace.

Secondly, I have purchased many things from Amazon.com. None on them including hard drives and micro SD cards; I have had any issue with registering for a UK warranty. A Sandisk SD card that failed was replaced by Sandisk once I showed them the Amazon receipt. Despite it failing because my son put it into his water cup.

You may want to only buy in the UK, that is absolutely fine. But for those who want a cheap HDD sold and shipped by Amazon (not gearbest/aliexpress); then this is a good option. If you can find anything cheaper than this from a decent seller, then let me know and I will happily vote this deal cold myself.

Oh, I know. It was just to counter the usual folk who come on and state "already posted/cold as posted cheaper". This is a decent drive and I haven't seen it at this price before. Hopefully will help someone else as well.
How are Amazon Global at paying customs? Anyone had any problems? This is the only worry I have buying from amazon.com £30 saving would be easily wiped out by problems with vat

The whole point of Amazon Global is that you are paying them to pay the customs. Their guarantee is that if it costs more than they charged, they will NOT charge you any more, but if it costs less, they WILL refund you. Personally never had a refund or heard of anyone who has but their charge always seems a little on the low side of what customs would cost me after the event if I had shipped it myself anyway.
