Great if anyone manages to get the 4tb. Note it is not sold as a NAS drive, it is sold as a surveillance camera drive.
not much of a deal is it, £1 off!
I’d be adding some heat if you could find a seller that allows you to buy more than 3 of them for £70 each.

Many customer reviews mention 2TB, none mentions the 4TB. I'd say that's just a mistype in the title, not worth the risk.
I've switched over to shucking 8tb drives rather than buying oem's recently...much cheaper. Easy to get the drive out but can be a bit fiddly if you need to cover the 3rd pin on the power connector, but its worth the saving!

Yes, but they are designed to be installed into a NAS enclosure and on 24 hours a day. There are cheaper alternatives if you just want a normal hard drive

Any particular ones you recommend that are solid? I was thinking as they are on 24hrs a day they’re pretty much indestructible...sorry for the noob questions

Any particular brand of drive that you would recommend for this - do you find NAS drives inside or normal drives? Thanks

I bought two WD Elements drives. Inside were white drives which are apparently "unbranded" reds which I believe have one year less warranty.

They were easy to shuck following a guide on YouTube. However they might not be recognised by your motherboard so you might need some sort of electrical tape that doesn't react to heat or coldness, to cover the third pin on the power connector.
It's not hard, it's just a bit fiddly if you have sausage fingers like me!. I used a cheap roll of kapton tape

Reds are pretty much just for storage.
In a desktop I'd personally recommend a WD Black drive. They are much faster than Reds so good for installing as well as storage

Must be a mistype, the 4TB has the title for the 2TB amazon.co.uk/Sea…8UI

I gave it a go but checked to confirm with them first. The person I spoke to said it should be 4TB as that's what it says in the description but if it's any different to give them a call. Anyway, a 2TB has arrived and they said I can either return it for a refund or keep it and only pay £46. I've decided to do the latter.

Can't fault Amazon customer service

How did you trigger the partial refund? Also, it's a surveillance hard drive, isn't that a bit pants?

They gave me an £11 gift card. No problems with the drive at all, it’s super quick and virtually silent.
