True. However at that price it’s obvious you’re not going to get the original manufacturer warranty. Plus how many times have you had hard drives fail in the firsts 2 years, let alone 6 months...
Thanks for posting 😁

Peace of mind? I've got two recertified drives from May 2015 and Feb' 2016 that are still (touch wood) going strong. One for data backup and the other for the Xbox.
Ordered thanks

But recertified drives have actually been checked by a human, whereas new drives are taken straight off the production line

If you happen to have a plex pass its an extra 20% off too.
I wish to purchase one of these as an external HDD for my Xbox One, would a "My Passport" coloured drive be any better than this one?
Anyone pulled one apart to see if there's a standard sata connector and drive?

I thought ps4 only works with fat32. Surely this drive is ntfs

PS4 now has Plug and play. So just plug any external drive in to USB port and PS4 is going to format it as external storage and its own file system. Got one of these but 4TB plugged in.

Not this one, but most branded USB 3.0 tend to be integrated to the drive's circuit board, to save on costs.
Update: youtube seems to show this as integrated:

Remember folks, USB 3.0 integrated drives are an absolute pain to retrieve any potential data if they fail (impossible without a matching donor drive), have a proper backup elsewhere.

just got one there. must've been temp.
Be careful if you buy one of these. I bought a refurb WD Disk 2 years ago and it stopped working so I sent it back and they said it was out of warranty and thus I would have to pay for the repair, and they wouldn't guarantee my data. They did offer me 30% discount if I bought another device from them, but not refurb.

I didn't use it! Their customer service is not good. Their product is unreliable.
I picked up the 3tb my book for £58. I want to for music files as I've bought a new aurelic streamer and Cyrus Dac. I am able to play all my music through this and use iPad to control it. I'll also create perfect rips of my CDs and play them through the set up. I've already tested it and the rips sound identical to the CDs.
The hard drive is ideal. I'll change it to fat32 as that's better than ntfs for music streaming.
Great deal

Change the Hz encode to FLAC rips and then listen via the mini & cyrus pureness!

Been using a recertified drive as a Plex server drive (as I have plenty of backups) and it’s been going strong 2 years 24/7
