Cracking find op, can't go wrong with wd drives
So tempted by this, but find them a little annoying the way they spin down all the time and take a while to spin up again...
Damnit, bought one of these for £98 a couple weeks ago.

If anyone's wondering, these are white label drives inside, at least mine was a WD60EMAZ.
Good price... got too many external. Good for this time around

There's a setting in Windows Power settings to keep it from powering down.
I'm really wanting to internalise my hard discs, but the externals just seem so much cheaper these days! Why is this?

But these mechanical drives are so last decade...
I recon the SSDs will become par by 2020 end. You can already get a 1/2 tb for circa 70/80...so give it another year. Remember when the higher HDs were first launched...back then you would need circa 300/400 for a mere 100gb

SSD's will always cost more than mechanical and as such no SSD's won’t ever replace mechanical. File sizes will keep increasing so space will keep being important so we will keep having SSD's that are smaller and used when we need speed and mechanical will be where we need raw space

I disagree. Remote (cloud) storage will become cheaper and replace the need for mass market sale of HDDs within the next 5 years. SSD will be used for local storage/boot device only. Yes, there will always be a market for HDDs but supply (low) and demand (low) will likely lead to increased prices. Also, speed is now a commodity so SSD will be the drive of choice and will become far more affordable as production is scaled.
It was £97 last week

Hot purchased from amazon currys had no stock near me.
As always I would recommend paying a bit more for the portable drives. If you've never seen one they are shockingly small and don't require a power supply
Has any one schucked one of these? What's inside? Are they all white label WD drives or is it the luck of the draw? Thanks
