Thanks for your deal. I've added the price and merchant to your title for you

Only £56 at Dabs inc delivery.

I've just bought WD 2TB Green from Amazon Warehouse Deals for £52.11 delivered, supposed to be used but this is Immaculate with a Manufacturing date of 12 June 2014.

Only one left.

Tempting but anecdotal evidence of high failure rate all over google.

Probably best to spend a bit more for piece of mind.

There's anecdotal evidence of high failure rates for just about every hard drive model and manufacturer out there. For every user on HUKD who's happy with a new hard drive, there'll be at another user who's had one go wrong and unhappy.

There's charts and tables around the web I've seen over the years that say Seagate has the worst failure rate in general, other users will swear by the brand.

Forget the high failure rate of the HDD, what about the high failure rate of ebuyer customer service?

to be honest that's quite fair for a company to do. Surely they would rather help the customer find out the problem than just accept back goods that aren't faulty, saves them money

Anybody who has actually used Ebuyer customer services can tell you how pants they actually are.

I'm not one to get on the bandwagon but they have been abysmal whenever I've had to return stuff, constantly advising to contact the manufacturer.

Well without an official count of returns from a retailer we may never know but the amount of DOA reviews I've read on neweeg and the like are not exactly reassuring.

Also the figures are available in the past Seagate has been consistently behind WD and Hitachi on reliability, so the people that swear by them are obviously soft in the head :P

And if you go and look at Revoo on Ebuyer, this Toshiba drive outscores or is a similar score to many Blue, Black, Red and Green Western Digital drives. In short you can find good and bad for any drive everywhere.

From my own experience, I know of about 7 or 8 Toshiba drives in use over the last 18 months, not one has had a problem so far. Could be blind luck, who knows, but for me at least, they are certainly no worse than any other brand of drive.
