WD My Cloud 4TB (recertified) £94.30 @ WD

12
Found 8th Apr 2015
Use the code: WDSTORECPN to get £10 off

These pop up every so often, and with the £10 off code this is a good price. For me its worth a punt as more often than not these are just customer returns or opened boxes.

The cheapest I can find the 4TB is £145, so you saving £50 going recertified.

For me, I'll be storing photos and videos on it so convenient access in my local network - but everything will also be stored in Dropbox, Drive etc

Just don't store everything in one place!

Just in case it's useful for anyone, the code is for £10 off a £100 spend (I think). so it's not limited to the "cloud" drives.

I've got this drive and like it but the first sync with my iTunes took 5 days

Bargain - bought one of these at Christmas, really good

Also if there's anybody with student/education emails then if you make an account with western digital you can get a decent discount on the non-recertified drives (it seems to vary with different products), though it looks like the code then doesn't apply.

I've noticed this as well.

I'm tempted by the My Cloud EX2 6TB mirrored version with the educational discount... it's funny how small things stop you.. If the £10 discount had applied I would buy straight away. As I don't need this product just yet then I'm just holding off (for a future price fall?!) when I do need it.

Yes, just as a good discount code will often persuade me to buy something I didn't know I needed, knowing that there's a voucher which doesn't work can stop me in my tracks!

good deal.

Messed around with my own nas for a while with nas4free, but hit a roadblock on a couple of things so opted for this out of the box solution - great price for the unit; thanks for posting...

Purchased thanks!
This will go perfectly with my new CCTV system, Heat added!
Code worked too.

Mine arrived yesterday - in basic brown cardboard boxes. No instructions but came with power cable and ethernet cable.

Great condition with sticky peel of plastic on the side.

Very easy to set up - I used FTP to queue and transfer over 500GB of data. You need to create another user in order to be able to FTP (and also enable FTP in the settings).

I was getting wifi write speeds of 10-11MB/s so I was happy enough with that.

Streaming worked well from Kodi. The WD android app seems to work well too.

Lets hope it lasts! But all data backed up elsewhere...

This from WD is miss leading, its not 'cloud' storage per say where you can upload to the cloud, but rather its personal drive storage that is just made available online...not sure personally why you would want to publicize your files to the internet...but anywayyy.

Depends how you define 'cloud'. It acts as a cloud in that I can access it anywhere in the world from any device. I can upload to it from anywhere in the world (as long as I have an internet connection). So in that sense it works exactly like dropbox. Except its in my house, not in some server somewhere...
