At £70 this was expensive, but reduced to £45 it's a decent deal

1TB Native USB Hard Drive
1 microSD™ card with SD card adapter
1 Power Adapter and USB cable
1 USB WD PiDrive Cable
1 Install Guide

The WD PiDrive Cable is the real star of the kit. By eliminating the need for a USB hub, the cable footprint is reduced. Fewer wires, less mess!

Every drive ships with a blank microSD™ card and adapter. That means you can use the microSD™ to safely test another operating system with the WD PiDrive without losing programs or files on your current microSD™ card.
It looks cool. Like, really cool. A favorite feature of our testers is that you can actually see how everything works and the drive is visually synced with the Raspberry Pi board.

(sad panda face) Have you considered giving it as a present/donate it to someone who might use it?

i can only guess thats marketing talk for it looks similar visually, in this case being unboxed and unfinished.
I can plug my external 1Tb HDD (in a case!) into my Pi. One extra power cable isn't a problem.

At £70 this wasn't going to sell.
Nice thought but the Native USB Hard Drive would be hard to upgrade nor to repurpose elsewhere.

It's just a normal USB3 hard drive... only the USB splitter cable is unuiqe to this kit
(many drives are USB native now)
