Looks like they have jacked up all the prices on the cetrified store.




Yes, I am wondering if this is such a deal now at £34.99 for 1TB as I suspect 2TB will be about £50 in the next week.

Seems a good deal for 6TB worth of storage.

I'm sorry I missed this one. These tend to be great value when they're available.

These (atLeest the one with the older style case) have been on here for £106 and even £99 before, so time machines aside, if you are prepared to wait, you can get them a whole lot cheaper. Drives inside are WD Blues.

Got a 4tb one for £64 recently, enclosure contained green drives. Very pleased with them.

Not as good deal as the 4TB per TB in comparison. But 4TB version unfortunately now OOS

You can use it as JBOD (just a bunch of disks), install plex or just use the DLNA function on it and away you go.

It's been stable for me with latest firmware. Obviously if you do swap over make sure you copy your catalog over in hardwired mode (ethernet) as copying 1.4TB of TV and Film via wifi just sucks and it will error out.

For future reference, is this a good NAS? I currently serve my media from my PC but it would be nice to have the media independent of the PC. I'd still keep a backup on the PC or a USB drive, so I don't think I'd need to use RAID mirroring.

Got it the last time it was on.

Running plex fine for single user watching.

Poor choice of words, perhaps I should have said HDDs fail reliably, as in, they will always fail and it's rare that they live beyond 5 years old, especially in 24/7 use.

As for the whole RAID is not a backup thing, sure, it protects against one specific problem which is a HDD failing. It doesn't protect against a drunk you running 'select all, delete' or any number of other problems that a good backup solution does, but the context was a person with just one USB HDD where RAID would be an improvement.

If I were then to do some stuff to make my computer share that USB drive on the network, then my phone could read files on it, as could my laptop and a chromecast, so long as they're all on the network. This device shares its local storage on the network so anything else on the network can access it, hence the name 'network attached storage'. It has an additional benefit in that the two drives can be configured to mirror each other, meaning if one fails the other still has a full copy of all the data stored. Hard drives fail regularly so this is a massive benefit for backups.

Ignore my question, cannot install on basic one plus general reviews say it's crap

Anybody know if their my cloud is any good as a stand alone server for Plex some random review bad for old version, better for higher spec ones but it does not say what firmware it os or such.

Most hard disks end up returned because people aren’t able to correctly diagnose software issues.

It’s not really economical to repair drives at this price point when you consider the cost of parts, labour, transport, replacement packaging etc.

These drives will simply have been screened, tested and erased to be ready for sale. There’ll be a very high yield of “No Fault Found” to make this worthwhile.

Inevitably some of these will fail and due to the previous wear and tear, plus extra transportation, it’s highly likely their failure rate will be higher than a new drive.

Simply a case of appetite for risk and what you can afford. If you’re data is worth spending hundreds of pounds to recover from a failed drive, it’s worth a subscription to a cloud service and the use of an on-site backup drive at the same time for peace of mind.

Bought an EX2100 NAS with 2x 2TB WD Red drives a few weeks ago - all recertified. So far so good...

Apart from the Seagate ST4000 series (inherently faulty drive), western …Apart from the Seagate ST4000 series (inherently faulty drive), western digital drives on general have a higher failure rate than Seagate ones. Expect to have around 5% failure rate (conservative estimate) for this. They will typically have their worst drives in these home, intermittent use devices (They are backup storage devices, not heavy use desktop hard drives and not always on storage). This is pretty bad for a device that shouldn't really be used that often. Still if you are going to use it in a xbox as a games drive then it should be no big deal. You can re-download your software when it fails and the chances are you will replace it when the newer shinier xbox comes out.

oh in regards to advantages to using a external HDD rather than upgrading …oh in regards to advantages to using a external HDD rather than upgrading the internal one is you have more storage for less money ! if you removed your PS4's internal drive you obviously lose this capacity and would have to put it in a external HDD enclosure to use it again. ATM I've got the 500gb internal drive that came with the ps4 and the 1tb external = 1.5TB overall capacity. if i had just installed a larger internal drive this would have worked out more costly and i'm happy with the above capacity.


Sorry, I was unclear (probably wasn't paying attention to your comments, I assumed you were talking about a PC!) I'm not planning on altering a PS4, I'm just thinking of adding a 3TB HDD inside my PC because I have 4 tiny old HDDs inside at the moment, and I'm also planning on getting a 3TB external HDD to back my PC stuff up on.

I'm just trying to work out the best deals to buy for both the 3-4TB internal and 3-4TB external drives. Obviously I want to save money but since they should (hopefully) last a long time, I would favour quality/speed/quietness/something I won't have to RMA!

You may need a Torx T10 screwdriver bit if you wish to remove the rubber mounts, or a pair of pliers will also do the job as they're not screwed in tight.Also, just checked the warranty for the drive itself and it says "Status: In Limited Warranty" until "03/31/2018".

Mine was a wd green drive. Same warranty - 6 months. But I just tried doing a full format (not quick format) and after some hours, when it looked like it was nearly finished, if failed to format with an error. Now I can't quick format it either.

I'm sending this back - the advice on here is correct. DONT BUY RECERTIFIED DRIVES, it's a false economy.
