WD White drive. Apart from lacking the 'NAS rated' label and the new sata variant which can prevent (easily solvable with sellotape) spin up via the 3rd power pin, they appear (in my experience) to function in exactly the same way as WD Reds.....(temp, write speed, noise). I used to believe they were different, but over time my view point has altered.

WD120EMAZ White Label. according to google/reddit

This is incorrect. White labels are normally drives that don't meet the spec of Reds for whatever reason, may require the 3.3v trick to be used outside of its enclosure and more.

Check reddit for additional details. (wiki or use the search for white labels)

so I'm learning. What a time to be alive (tbh I didn't buy the 6tb red @£122 because I didn't need it, so twice that, in a single point of failure, I'm good.

If you don't need 6TB, defo don't go for this! I'd always recommend going for two baskets for eggs, and getting as big a basket as you actually need. No point having a half empty drive.

Nice find this might finally bite
Decent but it has been as low as £155 recently from Amazon UK

That is only speculation, not a fact. I'd guess the externals probably get sold in high quantities and have a hard time believing there would be that many drives that didn't make the cut. I think the white label and 3.3v pin issue are both intended to discourage shucking.
If always heard that drives are all the same and are graded based on what tests they are run through. Whites just have basic testing. Reds have more intensive (time consuming) testing. May be totally wrong though.

£166 is the lowest its ever been on Amazon UK to the best of my knowledge. With fee free you are pretty close to that price already - but yes if you can wait then it might be an idea to tide it out and see if amazon would reduce the price again
Not for xbox keeps turning on & off no matter what settings I tried. So I am now running in complete power down mode.

Search for 12tb on here and you will find that it went down to £155 twice within the past month.

Nope, it's definitely been £154.99 on Amazon UK - I've bought 4 at that price. Whenever it's been at that price though it's only stayed in stock for an hour at most, then disappeared for a while.

Ok I stand corrected in that case - I was going by CamelCamel and there I see £165.99 as the cheapest uk.camelcamelcamel.com/pro…B9H but given it didn't last that long maybe the camels never picked up that price. £155 was definitely a cracker of a price then

It was the elements so I guess it was different, but it's the same drive inside with a slightly different enclosure and 1 year extra warranty.

Sorry, I didn't even notice this was for the My Book rather than the Elements, which is what I bought at £154.99. In that case £165.99 may well have been the cheapest this model has been. Since I've been shucking them, I don't really pay that much attention to the enclosure!

Still a good price as it's under the magical £15/TB - I ordered the Elements originally at £179.99, but returned once the £154.99 price came along. Guess I'm just spoiled by managing to get under £13/TB!
Hot. Non Recertified 6TB drives go for a similar per TB price
The most problematic drive of all the drives I have ever owned when connected to USB3 port of various machines. One drive crashed and was replaced. Replacement takes forever moving content between folders on same drive ! So, best avoided.
