What would be the best bet to do so?

Be prepared for the PWDIS issue if you do and the loss of warranty as well.
Pwdis?
One of the 3TB HDD in my NAS failed last week so I ordered and shucked a 6TB WD My Book (it had a white label drive in it).
I'll need another 6TB drive to make use of the full capacity. Was going to wait till black Friday but this seems like a good deal. £6 cheaper than the WD My Book so I think I might as well buy it.
Thanks, I've been very low on storage n waiting for deals on Black Friday but this current deal is the cheapest this HDD has been as on this years Prime day the same hdd cost £105. The hdd inside the enclosure should be the WD60EZAZ or at least it was when I purchased one in June this year.

8,10,12TB drives definitely contain white label drives and will do for some time yet. 6TB I expect will be hit and miss as they do make 6TB blue drives now and will be switching/ed over to using them. You can remove any drive however. Blue is not bad, and white is not NAS rated, although apart from a different sata implementation appears to be identical to red drives which are Nas rated.

you can just use a molex to sata adapter in a pc or insulate the 3rd pin from data connector ( use kapton tape) if a nas does not see it

Type it into google and you can learn all about it there. Some of these external HDDs have the feature which no volts on pin 3, normal PC power supplies have power on pin 3 and the drive will be disabled if this is the case.

It was £83.99 on 15th April so it is not the cheapest it has ever been.

I should have said it's been the cheapest that I'd seen it for Direct from Amazon, NEWay, I stand corrected.

also the 8 second head parking isn't great for a desktop or NAS, but can be disbabled with wdidle3.exe

It was sold directly from Amazon when it was £83.99.
Just received this 6TB WD Elements and put the HDD in my NAS. It was a white label but a different white label to the 6TB My Book I shucked last week:-

Left one is the WD My Book, right is the WD Elements. Anyone know the difference between the EDAZ and EMAZ ?
Worth putting "Western Digital" in the heading rather than "WD"

(I didn't find this deal initially, only after searching "6Tb")
