thanks, and now WD 4TB for £68.99 or Seagate 6TB Backup Plus for £77.99 ? :)))
5tb was £2 more a couple of days ago, and 6tb was a couple of pounds more than that.

I'm guessing cyber Monday may bring prices somewhat back to that ballpark

WD or Seagate prices?

This is the cheapest I have seen the 4tb WD. The 6tb WD was £85.99 briefly the other day, but is out of stock at Amazon now so there won't be any deal on those.

I wouldn't touch Seagate with a barge pole.

Many say the same about WD Oh well, enjoy your 4GB for the price of 6

I couldn't care less what others say. But my own experiences with Seagate are horrific failure rates so the 6 instead of 4 is a massive false economy

"From your experience" lol. Amusing that you're making expensive risk / reward decisions based upon a ridiculous sample size

Heard various professional builders avoiding WD for far better reasons. But I don't have data for the year so I'll decide you're both moot and go with my risk reward assessment based on previous failure rate data (consumer market) that suggest there's not much difference either way. It's like paying a premium for a taxi to go 10ft because you're afraid to cross the road due to overestimating stats

I'm glad you feel safe with WD. I certainly wouldn't be, data redundancy all the way! That said if I got 50% more archived for the money with WD (such as with this Seagate deal) I'd certainly go for the WD. Double backups
