HOT!

Brought one at £159 the other week. Been waiting to see if this dropped in Amazon Prime Day!

Happy Days!
Which drives are in these now?
Better than the £160 I paid last month for two drives. Grabbed another one now. Thanks a lot OP.
wow brilliant price, but 6tb for £87.49 was a better deal
I hear that the 10tb makes noise and heat too much, is that case ?
3 ordered 6 weeks ago. Add this to the collection

White label helium drives, they are equivalent to red drives.
Will be shucking this on arrival and sticking in my big rig taking me up to 105TB for now. Should keep me ticking over for a bit as I’ll then have around 19 TB spare

Is the warranty invalid once you've done this?

Yes once you open the drive warranty will be invalid.
Perhaps a silly question, but are these any easier to shuck than the 8TB My Book drives that were on offer a few weeks ago?

Other than the obvious 2TB capacity difference, are there any benefits for the 10TB vs 8TB?

6TB being cheaper is only good if you have unlimited space to keep adding drives, otherwise it’s only cheaper till it needs replacing. I’ll take a slightly more expensive 10TB (per TB) over a cheaper 6TB

In fact as mine ended up being 141.99. Mine was actually cheaper

Even if it hadn’t been been that price were only talking an extra 42p per TB. Not worth sweating over that IMHO

Of course. I’m guessing if you managed to get it out perfectly you MAY be able to put it back if you happen to have a problem with it

Good thing with Amazon is that generally there return process is faultless and without issue (at least in my experience)

Is there any difference to a larger drive?

If you don’t need that much space this is a big expense. Personally with a large server setup, this is a great way of pushing up my maximum storage array

Has little plastic tabs that can snap off if you are a bit rough

You can reuse the enclosure too, just need to cut a trace on the PCB.

just be patient then you wont break anything.

Movies mainly with tv shows too.

All ripped originally from DVD but has been replaced overtime with Blu-ray rips and now some UHDs. All uncompressed because I can

Ah. Maybe I can’t see it because I’ve bought one. Apols - panic over
powerbrick15/07/2019 16:41

Which drives are in these now?


White. Which is quite different from Red. Whites lack several features the Reds offer.

On this forum it's been reported they idle differently and don't power down to sleep in the same way as the reds. Not something I would notice.

Also whites have an issue with the third power pin (due to running a newer sata specification) which may prevent the drive spinning up and being read unless the pin is bypassed with tape or a usb caddy which isn't a problem for the reds. Oh and whites run much hotter - this I can attest to.

The white drives do get hotter than reds, I use out of the case and with a 120mm fan on them. Not a problem then. Can't say I've noticed a difference with noise......fan is fairly quiet too.

What a crazy world we live in where it's cheaper to buy a whole product and take out the hard drive than just buy the hard drive.

I don't think the warranty is as good on the My Books though?

Interesting to see that one video I watched said that in his country. USA or Canada I think, allows his drives to have a reduced, but valid warranty even when removing the drive from the case.

Not sure how and pretty sure that doesn’t apply in the U.K.

Yeah I meant even if you keep the disk in the enclosure I don't think the warranty is as long as a red?
