Good find
Thanks missed the other drives recently. Managed to get 2 of these.
Really reliable, good price
is the 3 year warranty correct? isn't it usually 1 for recert?

WD themselves state it is 3 years, so yes.
Isn't the new 2tb ..around 5 gbp more

Not this model.
does anyone know if you can take the drive out the case and use it in laptop or is the usb3 connector soldered to the hard drive
Great price. Paid £70 for a 2tb 2.5” drive just the other day. Ordered. Thanks OP

Thought the same thing until I read op description and you have to create a new account. I did that and it took £5 off.

@marcus_black might know.
Is this faster than the usual My Pasport drives? I often have to wait for the drive to catch up whilst flipping through some 'Raw' photos.
Does this work with ps4?
OOS?
It’s a big gamble buying any portable hard drive, let alone a damaged-repaired one!
Anyone know what rpm it is?
How does this compare with the elements 2TB for £35 posted other day ?

There's some truth to that, but 'recertification' is different from 'refurbished' - refurbs can be any old drive that's been wiped and sold on, whereas these will have gone through factory re-testing and validation.

It's difficult to repair a damaged hard drive and wouldn't be cost effective for a manufacturer (ie time consuming, costly, and needs clean rooms, etc) - you would only do it for data recovery, and as a last resort. These drives most likely came from a product with another issue - damaged USB port or casing (ie a cheap, fast fix), packing damage or just opened customer returns they can't sell as new without checking first.

They're probably fine - I personally wouldn't use it for anything 'mission critical' like a main backup in case the recertification is to a lower tolerance than original factory spec (I'm probably overly paranoid about it anyway!) , but just to store a few console games for convenience I can redownload anyway, I wouldn't worry too much.

Well all previous 2.5" WD portable HDD have not been able to do this with. Highly likely that the same applies to this. I'd put money on it. So the answers no sorry IMO.

Why would that be the case?! What aspect is a gamble, let alone a big one? Going on what you've said without explanation (though I doubt you can actually provide a reasonable explanation, cos I'll tell you now - there ain't one) then any purchase of anything is a gamble. Most unfounded comment I've come across in a while.

They contain moving parts, that can fail. Having had three hard drives fail in the past 10 years, two being WD, I speak from experience. Buying one thats had a fault and repaired is asking for trouble, common sense mate.

2 of mine failed!!
Worst part, after trying to make a copy of it for back up!!

You can still buy and store something ,which is very important incase of failure.
I have four recertified WD drives, and have had no issues for several years. All of them looked new. Many people believe that recertified drives are probably even more reliable than new ones, since they have been tested twice (factory and when recertified).

That’s true for the iPhone but tbf when it comes to laptops no company has tried to push usb c as much as apple has... so it’s a bit harsh to blame the lack of adoption on them.
