I know it's been cheaper in the past, but this is the cheapest I've seen it for a long time.

Fingers crossed Amazon price-match.

6TB for 220 on amazon

I bought some 3TB Reds about 4 years ago. Can't justify buying again 4 years later for more money than I paid then

Holding out for a 4TB Red. :-)

I read somewhere that the 3tb have a higher fail rate might have been in here

I think they're also £99 direct from WD Store. And there's a £10 off £100 coupon code, so add a £4 neoprene pouch for £93 effective..,

managed to get one for £91 from flubit just before Xmas. paid £83 3 years ago for a pair and they're rock solid

I have to say I have 2 of these 24hr running, over 3 yrs in, solid hd. But paid less than £99 for them,need more looking at the 6tb but waiting for the price to fall.....

Why didn't I hoard HDDs when I had the chance

How is this hot. They are often cheaper than this. Is anybody paying attention to people's comments...! . Aaahhhhhhh! Sorry. OP but I cannot agree that this price is hot. Too frequently below this price point.

I'd rather go for the Hitachi 3tb for a tenner more. The backblaze analysis showed them to be I think 5x less likely to fail per year.

I horded bloody Seagate 3tb externals, hardly the most sensible storage choice (though they were ludicrously cheap compared to today's prices).

I don't really need all this storage, video content used to be the bulk of the matter but it's hardly worth archiving as I will never watch it again. Most of my games are on Steam or similar services so I can retrieve the data, which just leaves music. The current subscription services don't fully cater to my requirements but I'm sure they'll continue to expand their offerings and render my collection redundant in years to come.

Second that.

I have a bunch of Reds, 3TBs and 6TBs, and 3TBs are by far the most reliable. If I had more free bays I'd buy 3TBs. The 6TBs have over an 11% failure rate unfortunately.

£75 2yrs 4month ago.What's going on, flood, brexit, value of £?



Probably neither. Consolidation amongst hard drives companies, Seagate bought out Samsung's hard drive business and Western Digital bought out Hitachi. Less competition means they can charge what they want.

Also reduced production, demand greater than supply and such like.

Thanks.

I've been using 3TB WD Reds without any problems. I guess I'll have to upgrade a couple of drives to 6TB soon. I've been putting it off as long as possible...

Just had one fail after less than two years of light use. Warranty apparently only one year using the WD warranty check portal for my model, which I bought believing it had 3 (it said it did at the time) so, whilst it's probably extremely unlucky, certainly ensure the warranty details after purchase
