Excellent timing. Whilst WFH i was looking at sorting out my NAS of 4TB. So now i can transfer the data out of the two disks in the NAS to this, and buy some new drives. Thanks OP!
Shukable red hdd?

Almost certainly a white label drive - 8TB+ drives have been for a while now.
Tricky as I've read somewhere that 8+'s are rebranded reds
AFAIK the books have user replaceable disks in them, no shucking worrys
Oh for the days when the 14TB was £180ish....... Heat added anyway

Only the mybook duos are designed to be user replaceable. The mybooks are quite tricky to do without breaking the lugs on the case. The elements are much easier to do, though you have to be careful
Yes these ones is quite easy to break the case while opening. Nothing compared to a duo

8s have been whites for a long time (I have 8+ of them, shucked from MyBooks/Elements). Whites are believed to be rebranded Reds, some Helium-filled, others not. There are many threads on Reddit /r/datahoarder discussing these drives.

Seconded. The Elements cases are almost trivial to open without breaking anything, MyBooks not so much. There are videos on YouTube showing the process but it's still pretty tricky to open a MyBook without snapping off the little plastic lugs (and I say that as someone who's shucked 6+ of them).
WD 12TB Elements was briefly £159.99 from Amazon yesterday but then it jumped up to £199.99 before I had a chance to post the deal.

No. Seagate Backup Plus 6TB was £77.07 (£12.85/TB) a couple of days ago. Also, WD 12TB Elements was briefly £159.99 (£13.33/TB) yesterday.

So, worth keeping an eye out as deals can be had but you’ve gotta be quick!

White drives are for most practical purposes the same as red drives, but there are subtle differences such as their sata variation. Plenty of online guides about the differences if that's important to people. 8TB+ are defo white drives. Blue drives in smaller capacity units. Red drives are only to be found in a duo (2 drive) unit.

Hardly. £15/tb and below was available last month, and has been the standard promo price for about a year now - even only the 14TB versions which went to this price almost immediately.

I remember beans being 3p a tin in the late 1990s. You'll never see 1/2p tins of beans again ever.
These are alsmost always around £200. They only went up a bit since february.These have droppd down to £165 fairly recently.

It’s this price on the WD website. May as well get it there and know it’s legit. Also if you know a student or old person you can get 15% off.
Just bought 2 of the 12tb both are 120EMAZ white labelled.
Manufactured Thailand 28th dec 2019.
