Don't keep everything on a single hard drive (no matter whether its brand new or a refurb) and you are much less likely to lose everything.

£20 is my baiting point for 1TB but I won't vote either way,

Does anyone know if the Samsung smart TV will let you record on this 1TB? Cos it doesn't let me on my 4TB ones
White is also showing as £28.99 for those interested.

Might be to do with what format your tv needs and the HD formatting accordingly?

Thanks OP bought a red 2TB for £45 inc p&p
Difference between this and old one ?
I ordered the orange drive on Sunday, delivered yesterday. Perfect for a retropie build
Take caution buying WD "recertified" drives. They tend to be a little overzealous about which units are actually fit to re-sell.

Western Digital have even been known to pass off recertified drives as "new".

Hope this doesn't sound rude, if you want to keep any data, make at least a second copy on another drive.
Or, upload all your music to Google!
Fml literally ordered a yellow one an hour ago.

Ohh well, atleast I like yellow lol

And/or the actual 'hardware limitations' of the TV's firmware as a whole too perhaps?.

That too sometimes proves to be the case ...

As I've personally found the case to be when I've tried to play Movie's via a pen drive, and the exact same Movie's via a portable hard drive.

The pen drive (regardless of what 'size' I throw at it) never had any problems. :-)

The portable hard drive on the other hand ...

(So it may prove useful to explore all 'options'?). :-)

Does it gets enough power directly from the Pi USB ports or do you need any additional adapter?

You need a powered usb hub or a externally powered usb hdd (which this isn't)
Have used wd re certified drives in the past - bought two and never had any problems. One with heavy usage (connected to dvr) other for emergency backups with occasional use.
Picked one up for my Xbox One - save some more games on it now!

Thanks OP.
Bought a new WD My passport years ago and ran tests and it had some problem, sent it to WD and got a recertified back and its been going for years and no problems reported yet

Just like how the xbox 360 used to be before they lifted the restriction (32GB i think) so that may explain why pen drives work and not portable HDs as most people probably dont have a pen drive over 32GB. Worth trying a 64GB pen drive as another option to explore to see if it is a GB restriction.
I've just posted my first draft of a FAQ list regarding WD recertified products, to be added to future offers.

It's a great idea - I'm always commenting on these threads telling people that recertified is nothing to be afraid of, that it's a good way to save money, that I've had several recertified WD drives and haven't had a single problem with any of them (although YMMV of course) and that, most importantly, if you care about your data BACK IT UP - never have just a single copy of it on a single drive, and certainly don't think that it's safe just because it's on a new drive or because that drive is under warranty (all warranty will get you is a repaired or replacement drive or your money back, it doesn't guarantee data recovery) so at the end of the day you're better off with two receritified drives than one brand new one because the chances of both of them failing are exponentially high.

As for feedback, I'd say it's a bit lengthy (and that's coming from someone who tends to write extra long posts) so perhaps you could trim it down a bit, although part of the reason it's so long is that you've covered a lot of areas that go beyond WD recertified drives, like file systems and NAS drives, so maybe it could be broken down into more sections or perhaps two separate FAQs - one for hard drives in general, one for WD recertified deals.

Also spelling - you alternate between 'disc' and 'disk'. The convention is that it's disk when referring to hard drives or floppy disks or any kind of computer storage apart from optical media (CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, etc.) where it should be disc. Whichever you prefer, be consistent (but it should be disk in this case ).

And evilBay? Really?
I got a 2TB recertified drive a few weeks back from a deal on here. It's going ok, however I think they are slightly loud with the platter head reading/writing or it might just be me.

Thanks very much for the feedback, I think I agree with most of it. I'll try to trim them to get to the point a bit quicker. Disc was my bad spelling, disk was in phrases I lifted from elsewhere - I think there's some rule about mentioning eBay here, only certain offers are allowed, so I used my friend's nickname for emphasis...

Why is everyone so defensive about eBay? It is generally a wonderful place but there is so many dodgy sellers, and buyers it can be a minefield and there moderation and support sucks big time.

I can't really. I have about 1.7 tb of music.
This is the reason I bought the 2tb.
Im sure Google wouldn't support that amount either.

Not strictly true, it depends on the power supply you have for your pi, mine runs fine from the pi's USB port but I'm using a 2.5amp power supply. A good power supply for the pi should handle the current draw from a portable external drive

Ask yourself: if you lost all of your music on this rectified drive, or a new drive (makes little difference) then would you be prepared to spend £45 to get it all back?

If the answer is yes, then buy another rectified 2TB for £45 (or whatever the price). You could also go find some free cloud storage for extra security, but uploading 1.7TB of files could take quite some time.

Rule of thumb, at the very least always buy double the storage devices for valuable data.

It's not bad that, at all.

I've commented on there anyway. :-)
