Good except for the fact it's from ebuyer. EBUYER BEWARE!

never in about 10 year's have I had a single issue with ebuyer and must have spent over £10k

Don't understand why higher TB hard drives now cost less than the internal counterparts. Wasn't like that years ago.

What drive is in these? Anybody know?

I'd hazard a guess it's a 4 Terabyte one....

I've never had a problem with Ebuyer either. They're one of my favourite places to shop for computer stuff. Cheap, too. What issues have you had with them?

Depends on which drives you mean. If these are generic 'green' drives then like-for-like you'd expect the internal to be cheaper I suppose, given the lack of casing etc involved. However the more specialised drives (red, NAS etc) never seem to make it into these enclosures and are always more expensive due to their nature anyway.

Supply and demand - companies sell a lot more external drives to Joe Public than internal drives, so the price is lower.

I have a couple of these drives plugged into my Xpenology server for backups. The internal array consists of four 3TB drives, most of which were liberated from external USB enclosures.

They're after the make and model...

Just picked up a couple of the 5TB ones - good saving thanks.

Mod & Ed

Thanks for sharing Thebeesknees, you can also buy the Toshiba 5TB Canvio Desktop Hard Drive from them for £104.99 - LINK HERE, if you don't mind, I have edited the title to show this too

I wondered if anyone knew the drive model. Not to worry. I'll see what I can find.

This is a noisy drive.

Good prices for both, hopefully Amazon will match both offers, doubt it though, as they haven't matched any of the other hard drives deals I've informed them of via the seen it cheaper form.

So Amazon have priced matched the 5TB drive, I'm now in two minds about buying one tomorrow... the price is great and I need a new drive, but the reports of noise put me off. I wish they had priced matched the Seagate drive I informed them of.

I had to send a lot of these back for clients in the enclosure they run far too hot this is why the others companies use 5200 drives no need for 7200 in usb enclosurers.

If you are planning to remove it from the enclosure then it's good value other wise stay clear.
