If they had a normal warranty, people who pay the normal price would rightfully question why they don't get a longer warranty for paying a lot more.

That's a good point
Cold second hand
I’ve bought a few of these now and I’ve not had any issues.

I also have purchased about half a dozen of these portable drives from Western Digitla from 2-4 Gigabytes. I use them for transferring files so they are not permanently connected. But they are all working fine. I can't understand why Western Digital has so many of these drives. Are they really reconditioned? Why does Western Digital (only) have so many of them?
They seem the only manufacturer to do this in such regular quantity.
Can we not just get a WD mega thread, seems a deal on these every day now.
Ps got 2TB the other week for my xbox one x, and so far so good. £35.99 delivered.
Although beware UPS deliver these very badly ie late and lie.
2tb are available most of the time so not hot for me. 4tb are like gold dust though. Cold from me.

But so many rectified HDDs. Says your new one will go kapoot soon
+ Sheeping cost!!!


what the speed please???
I have 12TB of recertified drives. No issue at all just make sure you have a good backup plan
A refurbished drive intended for backups with only a 6 months warranty is pointless.
Says notify whan available..
Same again, "back in stock", these were never out of stock
I believe these are dedicated USB only type Control Board, if so then dont buy if your planing on ripping the Drive out and use as a normal Sata replacement ie, in a Laptop etc.
As mentioned above why is this deal still up it's a repost and should have been deleted by the OP and if not taken down by the Mods, at this rate members are going to stop bothering posting deals I thought this would change after the editor reposted the eBay deal earlier.

Would these work with a Raspberry Pi 3b?
Could do with adding extra space to Plex and would be great to not need a separate power supply.

Thanks for sharing, someone has used it and not posted though.
I don't suppose anyone here could PM me a code if they have one to spare? I've been registered for well over a year and haven't received any emails from Western Digital and I've also checked my spam folder. Only need to purchase one drive! I would be forever grateful! I posted yesterday but no joy...
Would love a code, if someone has one spare?
Orange 2TB still in stock and most of the 1TB

Potentially, typically you would plug it into the TV and the TV would say the drive needs to be formatted in a specific format to work with the TV. Go ahead and allow the TV to do this and then it should work for there. All depends on the make and model of the TV and general spec. I've seen some cheaper TVs that only allow this functionality with a standard USB stick. My advice would be to google the specs of your specific model TV and that will give you a definitive answer.
would these be suitable for a PS4?

Thanks, I had a look at the specs and it seemed to indicate it would work. I've took a shot and ordered one - I can always make use of another hard drive elsewhere anyway. Cheers for the help

A brand new drive isn't immune to failure, either. If you have important data then you should have a backup of your backup, just incase

A warranty may not help you if the drive fails, whether it's 1 month or 1 year old.

A new drive isn't immune to failure but statistically, it will last longer that a recertified drive - WD have provided 3 year v 6 months warranty for good reason and as a result of their analyses, RMA data etc.
Are these the kind where the drive's USB controller is soldered directly onto the drive?
I hate those ones at work - controller goes pop, you're jiggered.
At least the ones that are standard SATA can (sometimes) be salvaged.

Interesting. May I ask you to link the source of statistics you mentioned? And where did you establish that the reason for shorter warranty on reconditioned drives is due to the reasons you mentioned?
