You can never have too much storage
Something funny going on??? The 8TB was £139.99 about a month ago and that was a good price. Are dealers trying to offload stock before.......

Of course it would. Why wouldn't it?
For the 8tb My Book is it likely to be a wd red inside and is it easy enough to get out? Why does the bare drive have to be double the cost
8TB OOS

Ah yes, my bad. I looked through the regular link for the 4TB and changed storage to 8TB.
Purchased, ty. Gonna use as a backup drive.

The 8tb drives are so loud, they thud every few seconds. Apparantly normal behavior... i sent 2 back and kept one, all made the thud.
Theyre also not reds.
Price for the 8s went back up. Annoyingly the 12s were 179 last night and was about to pull the trigger! now they are 200. Still not a bad price at all

I’m glad you said I thought mine was faulty
Sounds like a Tumble dryer
Used to work on £25/tb, prices plummeting for high cap drives. Might have to amend it
Most likely will be white label blues or even greens I got 4tb from my book, drive almost dead after year of usage
This seller has a limit of 3 per customer.
...and these things take ages to spin up. When linked up to a smart TV as a digital recorder, by the time this thing is ready to start writing data and handshaked with the TV, the TV's turned round and says "you've had your chance, you ain't having this recording" and cancels the scheduled event.

You turn up later and think, right, excellent, I can watch 7 back to back episodes of Columbo - only to find none have happened.
Cure is to turn off HDD energy/eco saving function if your TV has it.
But, a small portable 1 or 2 TB drive doesn't exhibit this problem and that gets all its power from the OOSBEE connection and is quick enough to spin up to speed and carry out its task on eco mode.
This mammoth WD has its own PSU and is still caught asleep at the wheel.

Anyway, learnt the hard way - don't expect this thing to impress with its speed.

I have two prchase about a month ago, almost totally silent: NOT in a raid array fortunately and yes they are white
Just noticed that the WD My Passport 4tb has almost twice the data transfer speed. I want storage for my PS4 Pro, so am I correct in thinking this will almost literally double the load up times for games? If so, I think I'll spend the extra £15 for the Passport version.

Mine also spins down with a weird noise (hard to describe).
Hmm, is it time to buy 3x 4TB for my PC, X1X and PS4? Seems like a decent price and I've been thinking about external storage for a while now
what drive is inside the WD 8TB My book £123.99 delivered
Great price for the 8TB disk, ordered - thanks OP

Just shucked an 8TB My Book ordered yesterday; WD80EZAZ as expected.
that's good to know... have three arriving in the morning :-) Just waiting to see if more come up as I wanted 5 of them. Any good guides to opening the enclosures without damaging them (just incase I need to do a warranty return)?
My first computer had a 10mb HD with a dot matrix printer.

Still the same price [Image]

The My Book is the model above Elements. It comes with some extra backup software and encrypts data on the drive (not that useful). The actual drive inside is the same in both models.

You must have been very careful. They are quite easy to open, but the tabs have little telltales which are designed to break. The tabs still work but if these parts break they know you have been inside.

HD! Kids today don't know they are born.

Before the pound really tanks? Probably. I'm converting all my GBP into material goods, hell even Venezuelan bolívars and Zimbabwean dollars. #BarterEconomy #Stockpile
