Yes but here's the thing, you buy it with a 2 year warranty for £190.99(has been cheaper) is it worth throwing away the 2 year warranty for a price difference of £33.57?

It all depends on personal preferences. I do buy stuff from Amazon US or other Amazon websites never had any issues. After all if someone is buying this drive for Sucking it you will loose warranty doesn't matter from wherever you bought from.

It's a shame you missed the 10tb WD my books the other day for £153 they are on order and I'm still waiting but we will definitely be getting them soon and they have reds inside. These have the cheaper less dependable blues inside and if your storing 10tbs of data on it you want it to be dependable. You would be much better off getting the 6tb my book for £101 it's cheaper than the elements 6tb model if that's big enough for your needs and it's from Amazon UK so no warranty issues. Also the my books come with a 3 year warranty where as the elements models only have 2 years warranty it's a no brainer really.

This person talks nonsense again and again when it comes to WD drives. I have shucked both a 6TB and a 8TB My Book in the last 6 months for a new build. The 6TB housed a WD Blue and the 8TB housed a white label 'red'. If polly69 had bothered to watch the video above or done some googling they would know, categorically, that this 10TB Elements drive is a white label 'red', yet they claim it's a WD Blue in their statement above. Stop misleading people polly69!!

There are countless threads on this very site which are for the 6tb My Book, almost all of them contain people saying they got a blue inside, this info can be found using that handy search tool at the top of the page.

Also, using google (which is free, don't worry) you can find numerous people all saying the 6TB and below now come with a blue, this whole "4TB and 6TB externals definitely have red drives" time is over, that was only because WD didn't have the actual capacity to make cheap 4TB and 6TB drives so they took a loss and shoved reds in the cases, however, now they do have that capacity.

Even the 8TB and 10TB, while the chances of red or equivalent Hitachi drive are much much higher, unless it specifically states it comes with a red (like the my cloud ex2 and the my book duo) it's no guarantee you will get the real red helium drive either because you could end up with an air model just as likely as you are to end up with a helium drive.

Complete waffle. Blues are not made in 10tb. This will have a white label Red drive inside.

What's the difference between this and this?



The MyBook that you linked to has a newer case design, lacks an activity LED indicator, runs slightly hotter due to ventilation design, and has hardware encryption. It's also a bit harder to shuck. Everything else is pretty much equal, including the probability of drives inside.

The encryption can be a curse or blessing depending on your needs. It's provided by a separate SATA to USB board inside, and if that goes, the data on the drive can be difficult, to impossible, to recover. But if you are just getting the drive for backup or to shuck, it should not be a problem which of the models you get.

No, the £195.99 is a promo price which cannot be stacked with the discounts you mentioned.

Those discounts will only apply to the regular price of £219.99.

This has been discussed before on previous WD threads.

How can you just state things that are blatantly false? Most if not all 10tb WD drives in either elements or My Book format contain white label helium drives. My books are a bit more difficult to shuck due to their case design. I shucked 2 10tb WD elements earlier this month and both were white label drives. I am not even aware of 10tb being available in the blue range unless you have a reliable source to refute that?

You are correct about the warranty difference, although the moment you shuck the drive; that is the end of your warranty.
