    £20/TB how is that a good deal?

    These are drives optimized for running 24/7 with better MTBF/AFR numbers than the shucked WD you propose. You might not care about your data; I for one don't copy anything I even slightly care about to a spinner drive unless it's in a mirror.

    Very good price. Trouble is I need to buy two for my NAS. Don't think the wife will let me spend £320 on drives.

    Start with 1, and replicate what’s important to OneDrive for £5.99 a month.

    Bought 3 of these back in January for my Asustor for £181 each so this is a great price.
    Wouldn't trust the Barclays interest free over 3 months though, got declined with a perfect credit score in the past so only go with Amazon 0% payments when offered which they are offering over 5 months in this case. (edited)

    Can this be used in a normal PC or is just for NAS drives
    Avatar
    Sure can, but you can get the same capacity drive for less usually if you buy the desktop model.

    Are these good for CCTV nvrs?
    Avatar
    CCTV drives are tweaked for continuous writes. This will work, but might not last as long.

    Just ordered a 4tb version with Amazon £5 off currently on selected accounts works out 72.99

    I am going to install it in my desktop in addition to 1tb ssd wich is. Now full. Can I still use the NAS feature in that scenario? How do I connect it to the network?

    The drive itself is not a self-contained NAS device (if thats what you're thinking) - its a normal bare-bones HDD which has got some additional features to protect it from rotational vibration which can occur when installed in a multi-drive NAS system which are typically running (potentially heavy-duty operations) 24/7.

    That is a hot price and the fact you can spread the cost over three months interest free is brilliant

    Great Price , I've been waiting for this to come down .. was looking at the 4TB drive (£87.99) and 3X Raid 5 ... but now might go for a 8TB (£159.99) 3x raid ... bit more money but cheaper £/TB ... One question .. does any one know how noisy the 8tb drives are .. I heard the larget they get the louder they get ? .. thanks

    I have my nas in the kitchen cupboard, 3 x 8tb and you hear them rumble quite often even when doing nothing.

    I've got these for my NAS, can't say I have a lot to compare to but I find them incredibly loud compared to drives that have sat in my PC before - clunking away which you can hear from other rooms.

    Thanks OP. Use these extensively in my UNRAID server, guess it’s time to add another

    For context I recently bought one of these secondhand from CEX for £125, so the added £35 for brand new makes them a bargain.
