£103 that was on May 08, 2018
This 4TB has been £113 on Amazon since last December, it's a saving on that price.
I bought 4 @ £95.99 a few weeks back from Amazon. Different listing but same model.

So I got 2 Bay nas and its hosting my surveillance and media files. 1 drive is populatated with a 4tb iron wolf but was considering if I should mix and match with this hard drive? I'm not looking to increase my capacity as such but should I put it on mirror raid 0 (back up)?

Ultimately the only thing I want backing up is my digital photos but can I use the USB port off that to sync to an external hard drive connected up?

That £95.99 was for the WDBMMA0040HNC Series drive, this is the updated WD40EFRX series drive.

How confusing is this
Beware of amazon. I ordered one of these last year, came in a brown book style package with bubble wrap round it. Didn’t even spin up...

This drive is a component package and not a retail package. Therefore it will be in brown box with a bubble wrap in static bag.
Yep, exactly what i ordered and received in a static bag, with one layer of bubble wrap, in one of those boxes they use to ship box sets or books (so, yep, same thing). To package a drive properly you want a lot more bubble wrap or some space/air bags to absorb shocks for when the courier drop kicks into the van.
componenet box means it is oem so you only get (1) year warranty with Amazon. The retail version with full warranty is £130.

Just to make things clear the drive that comes in a retail box is WDBMMA0040HNC. That drive was on sale about 3 weeks ago for £95 and is currently £129. The drive listed above is the component boxed (or brown box if you prefer) which is why it is cheaper. The component boxed drives appear to be more prone to failure for some reason.

Where you got this information from? Any sources or experiences?

I did a bit of research before buying 2 of the 4tb retail boxed drives for my nas at the end of august. During this research a number of people complained about D.O.A and poor lifespan of the component boxed drives.
Also when I bought the retail boxed drives from Amazon i had the option of having them placed into another box so that whoever delivered them would not know what they where. A second box is likely to cause less damage with rough handling too.
One would expect these drives to comfortably be capable of <2 years

I have been after two of the drives and also so the £95 price which was listed for a few weeks but was put off by the first comment that said no warranty. Did you get warranty?

They will not have a real warranty. They will be 1 year warranty with Amazon only, not Western Digital. There is an option to purchase additional warranty with Amazon for another £10. There is a reason why these drives are cheaper.

I value my data more than a small saving.

There is no reference to a warranty in the description. There is an answer in the questions part.

Buyer beware as they say - even if sold by Amazon.

So the lesson here is to buy retail boxed, yes/no?
I've got 4 of these 4TB WD Red in my NAS and after just shy of 3.9 yrs continuous use 2 of them are showing a few SMART errors and I'm going to replace with the same and swap all 4 out. They run pretty quiet and have lasted well hard drive SMART stats 6TB seem pricey still.
I registered my 4TB retail boxed drives with Western Digital and have 3 years warranty. Hopefully the price will drop again on Black Friday because I need two more to fully populate my NAS.

As per my screenshot you will see my NAS reports them as WD40EFRX.

Not got around to registering for warranty yet. I'll report back if successful

The 3 year warranty is with WD, just like the amazon purchase (proof purchase just required). The WD Red has the 3 year warranty and the WD Red Pro have 5 years warranty. It us now cheaper on Amazon than eBuyer and no delivery fee.

where is the warranty information? I cant see any reference to it on amazon, nor your post. In the questions and answers it says only 1 year warranty with amazon.

see comment: I just received two drives that were listed as OEM when i tried to register. WD support have stated they will not offer a warranty for them

Also the supplier is not Amazon, its some company based in Spain. Good luck with any warranty claim.
Edited by: "fiqqer" 3rd Oct
In case anybody is looking at this, I bought a WD red 4tb from the Spanish company(Mercado Actual) through Amazon for £102.78 last week. When i checked the warranty status on WD's website, it had an expiry of Jan 2022.

However, it gave me the option to register the product. All I had to do was enter the date of purchase (no proof required) and state that I bought it from an online retailer (again no questions about from whom) and the expiration of the warranty is now set at 3 years from the date I purchased ie October 2022.

Should also add that the unit came woefully underpackaged (in stark contrast to every other Amazon purchase I've made) in one layer of bubble wrap and a brown cardboard envelope. Luckily it seems to be operating just fine so far.

I'm now running eight of these WD red drives 24/7, some of them for six years without any failures so far.
