Previously discounted to £66.97, now it's even cheaper.

I used my £10 off a £50 spend on one of these this year and last year, last year's one is in my nas and it's used daily and still going strong. Incase anyone wondered, I'd rate these drives very highly, it seems that sometimes cheap doesn't always mean poor quality.
If I ever see a drive being sold under the magical £20 per terabyte price point I always buy one.

Yeah I'm always on the lookout for the same. These Toshiba one's have always been solid for me (moreso than WD actually), although I'm sure some of it is luck of the draw.
Heated extremely good price for 3TB, are storage prices becoming reasonable again or one off sale price, probably latter but nice to see hard drives occasionally return to the low prices of yore....
These any good in a NAS?

These are not designed to work in NAS environment so theoretically you should not use them as such. But if you are willing to take a risk you can of course give it a go.
I just ordered it yesterday and got it this afternoon at 66.97

Contact Amazon and see if they'll refund the difference.
I think the price at Novatech has dropped by a couple of quid as well since I bought two last week, though Novatech are still a couple of quid more than Amazon. I ordered a WD Red from Amazon which was DOA and badly packaged. In the end I paid the extra couple of quid and got them from Novatech, came in proper padded boxes and work fine.

May be a bad luck with the DOA from Amazon as far as the WD Red goes, but there seems to be plenty of complaints about the way the are shipped in the one star reviews.
Would this be any good for my Ps4?
Maybe with a bit of dremmel work on it.Its a 3.5 drive so would need a caddy

What so you mean?
Just my one is a bit loud? Haven't used 3.5" drives in the past few years so have no idea how loud they are.

Your ps4 has a 2.5" drive in it and as this is for a 3.5" it wouldn't fit so wouldn't work as an internal drive for the ps4.
How is this sort of drive in terms of loudness?
Is this load?

It's true its not really meant for a nas, nas drives tend to be designed to be run 24/7 and constantly be written to and they also have much longer warrantys hence why they cost more, it's a risk using one of these for sure but at the end of the day there's no guarantee that a proper nas drive won't fail just as easily.

Like that guy above me said, it's pretty much luck.
I got mine during Amazon discount last month, combined with the gift card £5 bonus. I paid £51.97 for this item.
It's quite. The packaging just okay, but it was strange because only one side got a foam padding.
The item is sealed in the anti static bag.
Why Worry about the packaging? In the end of the day it’s not the packaging that you’re putting inside your computer LOL

So it would be okay to just slap a postage label on and send it then?

I remember, I read the comment in HUKD in the past about how bad is hard drive packaging if you order from Amazon.

The other thing we didn't know is how the delivery man handling the item. There is no "handle with care" label at all.

If the item is well packaged with proper padding, it will minimise the damage during the transit with bad handling.

I am sure that you can upgrade the Ps4 to a 9.5 drive. 969526661-1517914373.jpg

The 5400rpm version is £4 more expensive. I'm guessing it is a bit quieter for those interested in a quiet media centre

Just say you'll be sending them back as you've found a cheaper price (which I believe is one of the reasons Amazon list for sending an item back). Although you'd prefer they refund the difference to save the chew on. It's a couple of quid difference so I don't see what the issue would be.

Yeah but that's extra messing around for you, time is precious. Also, what if there's damage that doesn't manifest itself straight away, maybe it takes weeks and you've already filled the HD with data.

Some will be sent out already faulty, sure. If the packaging has no shock absorption, it increases the risk of damage due to the way packages are handled in warehouses and during transit. Force + No Shock Absorption = Potential damage to sensitive equipment.
