These have bad reviews? Any reviews on here?

I started using Toshiba drives after they (The brand in general) got favourable lifespan reviews from a Backblaze disk summary a few years back.

I would say they are a little noisier than others I've tried (e.g. WD reds) - but since I'm very frugal and they're much cheaper than WD Red 8Tb (£170 here v £215-245) I was happy with this. Maybe consider looking up noise reviews if your intended use is media centre.

£148 for WD Black which I'd say is a better drive:

Crikey - didn't realise they put WD-blacks in enclosures!
Interesting.

Actually - can't find the 8Tb NOT in an enclosure - lone WD black disks seem to only go up to 6Tb, odd.
Voted hot. I have two of these running on my NAS since prime day 2019. Not in need anytime soone otherwise would have bought two more at this price.

Not really, the HGST drives in these cases (known for 12tb WD Black) are server drives also which spin at 7200 revs. So as well as being fast they are also reliable.
You can buy the Synology DS916+ 4 Bay Desktop NAS Enclosure with 2GB RAM for 300 quid plus 5 quid ish DHL postage from Germany. It’s marketplace seller but money is safe and delivery assured by Amazon. Look for item ASIN: B01EMSGNCY

Please comment if you ordered and had any experience, good or otherwise.

Woo interesting.
Do you know what model of HGST drives they are to cross check my QNAP nas compatability list?

Mind you - already have 5xToshiba N300 in it so additional speed wouldn't make any difference, just the price

In the 12tb version it had the HGST Ultrastar DC HC520

I'm not sure what is in the 8tb version. I dont think it is the above as those have a 5 year warranty this only has 3. There cant be many options for a 7200 rpm drive at worst it will be the WD Black it is their premium 7200 rpm drive. Its not going to be the WD red as that is 5400 rpm.

Thanks For the reply. Update : sorry to say this seller is fraud and to my order replied saying cancel the original payment to Amazon and send money by bank transfer to his account in Spain!! Reported as fraud to Amazon and refund in process. Guess there is good reason hukd don't allow marketplace deals and that's why I posted the comments to spread the word.
