It will be £56.99 for the black once it comes in stock again, which it does regularly.

Yeah, been keeping my eyes on it for a while, hence how I came across this. This is still a good price nonetheless and sometimes it's just worth grabbing one when you can given how quickly they get snapped up...
Hiya , is that comes with any warranty ?
will wait for the black
Hot but i want black one
I got two of the black ones last time. They seem pretty good! I think I prefer the packaging that the recertified drives come in - much easier to open, for a start!
CHEAP!!!

Have you started filling up the drive yet? How is it?

If you got the 4TB one then try and fill it up to 4TB with rubbish to check if everything is in working order.

I believe these drives only fails when you fill it up to their max capacity!

Me too! I'm on this site regular, I go out for a few hours every now and then, and one of these in black turns up and sold out by the time I check

Sounds dubious. Hard disks are not like bottles of water - they are always completely full, be it of ones or zeros. Filling up a disk is a concept that can only happen at the file system level, and when you add new files, you're only changing existing 1s to 0s or vice versa - you've never actually adding any new bits to the drive.

If the drive already has bad sectors, that would show up in the SMART output. If there are as-yet-undiscovered bad sectors, then you're just as likely to encounter them immediately as you would be when the disk is nearly full.

The SMART data came up fine on my drives, and writing and reading random bits across the entire drive was successful. That's good enough for me.

But not good enough to warrant only buying one drive, of course
Does Recertified = refurb?
If so how do people feel about refurb HDD?

So explain why almost every (6/7) of my drives and countless USB sticks fails only when they reach their max capacity?

Not so smarty pants now are you?

(I also want to add that not many people fill up their drives, simply because they don't have enough files/stuff to fill up the drive with, yet they still buy 4TB+ drives) reason why they never experience failure in their drives

Bye now, have a nice day.
