2 year warranty sounds good from CEX. Is it no quibble?

blackvelv

Wont you invalidate your warranty if you crack them open? im assuming most HD's have manufacturing info on them. My point is the warranty is too short. I rather go for 2 years and a chance of getting my money back, than 6 months and no chance. They are recertified after all...

I don’t like cartoons.

Tarquin8484

Pity all those people weren't as amazingly wise and clever as you, I suppose. An off-site backup - it's definitely a profound, ingenius and original idea. Give it a rest. Let people do their backups (or not) their way, and you do yours your way. You're not adding any non-obvious information to this thread. You're just gloating about your uber-smart 5TB Hentai multi-backup scheme.

ollie87

Not trying to get the better of anyone, I’ve just known far to many people trust external hard drives for backups and be shocked when they lose all their data.

monks600

Well that’s pretty obvious isn’t it? I merely stated what the definition of a backup was dependent on the scenario. Off site backup would be good practise. This site makes me laugh, everyone jumping down your throat and trying to get one better on people.

Yes you can do that, but it means the machine with your torrent client, and the My Cloud both need to be on. Get Transmission on it and you shut everything else down and it runs on its own, with much less power used.

richrab

Oh, good. Thanks for the heads up.

Waterlogged

Can you not just point your PC, phone, droid box to the hard drive?

ElBuc

Yes, you can side load a version of the Transmission client using SSH, lots more details online.

ElBuc

Yeah the reds at this price are great. When I say two firmwares, I mean that some of the My Clouds won't take the 2.xx firmware, so some versions of the same model will be fully up to date, but will not have the superior 2.xx firmware. I'm not sure why this is (possibly undisclosed hardware differences?) but the functionality is different in a number of respects, the 4.xx will not allow fast transfer of large files via the USB 3.0 port - the copy function (in the backup tab) doesn't exist. This is for the single port model in this post.

For anyone looking at shared drives its very useless for it. however, you can make a shared drive by placing them in a public forder and mapping that by mapping to its i.p address. However it cant be seen externally so a bit useless too. Also the usb port drive cant be used to backup the My Home - meaning if this failed its a endgame for the data. Plus to copy from a usb drive to this it has to be done on the mobile app. Awful device WD stores supports terrible too. im trying to get a refund - paypal are assisting as they ignore you - read the reviews online - i made the mistake of not doing so

ElBuc

Thanks for the info. I may have to get one with high capacity to push it to its limits. It sounds like they have screwed everything down so the less tech users have a simpler experience. I mean 95% of people I know would still have a hard time getting their head around why this would be any use, while at least half of them will be using some kind of remote cloud, and many of them paying regularly for the service. Sometimes simple is better, like for my friends who have all the holiday photos they have ever taken on the one SD card that they bought with the camera, and think that their pics are safe and that it is where they should be stored!

AbuG

It mounts a network drive in Windows by way of the WD Discovery software. So have to login with this first each time before it mounts the network drive. Its not possible in Linux as there is no software for it. There is no mounted network drive in Android except an anonymous unsecure samba share. Can use this for Kodi. The samba share is fast transfer... Everything else is slow. The filesystem on the cloud is kddfs... Never heard of that before. It does backup with Googlecloud , dropbox & one drive copies it all, can't select folders. There is 2 way sync and backup through 3rd party Windows10 apps.

ElBuc

So no mounting of shared volumes even?

AbuG

From Android mobile you can autoback up photo's and videos only. Very slow. Also Manually upload files. Although very slowly. You can push a directory (and files) from Windows10. Slowly. Linux is out of the question. You can't auto-sync a directory from this hardware, like rsync. Which is what you want from a backup function to auto upload new and modified files only. This can be done but is more of a push command from the PC software WD discovery rather than the cloud.

Check on the other Home offer, someone who has one has explained the differences.

bccben

Are there any differences between the two models or is it just storage size?

chocci

Avoid this then as I'm a computer programmer and the off site access using their awful software just does not work. Their forums are full of people with problems accessing their data off site. Great as a standalone home network storage but nothing more.

ElBuc

I haven’t had experience with the ‘Home’ but even the old one will do what you’re after. Are you sure you have it in your basket? If you haven’t already completed the purchase I would be very surprised it is still there. But if it is, grab the 5TB and if it doesn’t meet your needs then all you need to buy is an empty NAS of your choice and pull the 5TB out. A 5TB WD red will cost considerably more anywhere else.

I've always bought Reds for the warranty as much as anything. They've always been decent. I'm giving the 8TBs here a go, Can't get 4 in one go as max purchase is 3. So buying a couple today and a couple Sunday. I always get a bit nervous purchasing drives in multiples as I prefer to buy from different stores to avoid them coming from the same manufacturing batch, However, with the savings here I'm willing to ignore my 'rule'.

dardar

Thanks

tightar5e

It's a WD Blue 6TB Standard drive 5400rpm (no Helium).

dardar

Do you know if the 6tb is helium filled? Does it really matter? Does the helium deplete in time and make the disk useless or am I just being paranoid?

tightar5e

They won't have retail Reds in them, i.e. red, Reds. They'll be white label with black text, WD don't make a 10TB Blue, so it will be helium filled. OK for a home/SMB NAS. In a small setup, whatever the marketing - the different types of drive (Blue, Red, Black, Gold) only really come into play when you have errors on the drive. How the drive deals with errors, the drives with the least vibration/noise are probably selected at production, to become Reds, but there is no proof of that. I don't believe Reds use different spindles/bearings/motors, say from Blues, maybe? It's mostly clever marketing to latch onto the fear of losing your data. Having a good backup/tested recovery process in place, is far more important than the colour of the drive.

I think the onus is upon the Manufacturer to prove that there is\was no fault with the product within the first 6 months of a Warranty, after that the onus falls upon the Buyer to prove that faults which occurred with goods after those 6 months were through no fault of their own, ie dropped or spilt some kind of liquid on it. From what I've read regarding hard drives they seem to last a hell of a lot longer than say Refurbished TV's which develop dead pixels or suffer from Colour bleeding issues. I could be wrong though, I'm just talking about Warranties as a whole, not just based on Hard Drives :)

tamaru

Is this accurate? EDIT: Never mind, it's on the product page. That's disappointing and off-putting.

itsgun4u

Plus 3 years vs 6 months of warranty

RiverDragon8

Subtle difference would be the little label at the back of the case says Recertified in 'name of country', and if you crack open the case it will have Recertified printed on the sticker. Other than those two differences, they're the same as new.

Gav_Shaw

Should be no real major difference, recertified is the new common name over "Refurbished". They claim to give the goods a thorough inspection, as is the case with refurbished goods, but Recertified Goods tend to come with a Full Manufacturers Warranty. So technically there should be no visible difference or performance issues between "Recertified" and "New" goods apart from the Price.
