Tempted but i've got a few hard drives already
This worth it you think? Keep running out of space on ps4.
My get to match the one X.
Great deal - new is £120 currently (after a quick search) & rarely goes for lower it appears:

Bargain price for this
Can this be dismantled and put inside a laptop?
Ordered thanks the 2tb is £38 but you need to spend over £50 to get free delivery
THE FIRST OF THE BI-WEEKLY WD REFURBS back already? Time flies so fast.

Yep you can guarantee it on every wd refurb deal. Well to add some balance before the moaners descend onto this, I have owned several WD refurbs and not had problems with any and IMHO a brand new drive has just as much chance of failing so there!

The worst are the people who never even owned these drives and they come on here ranting and raving and talking about them.
It's probably more sensible to think about the use of the drive .. if you need it for storage of important stuff then it's crazy to cheap out on refurb drives .. if you are using it for an Xbox PS then it's fine IMHO

Not 100% sure but unlikely. Similar WD drives have the USB3 connector physically soldered to the drive board, rather than having some removable SATA to USB3 adaptor that would otherwise make the drive compatabile with standard SATA connecions. Can't immediately find any teardown / disassembly refs for the My Passport X model(s).

was just going to say that ha
Had lots of WD refurbished drives and never had one fail on me. You would be hard pushed to find another 2.5 3tb drive anywhere for cheaper.
Have been looking for one for a decent price. Cheers! +1!

I am rather disappointed not to see them.

They must all be busy be swigging that Lidl prosecco.

Out of Stock now.
Well I bought one a few months ago. Looked like new & passed every test I threw at it. Nothing to say it won't break next week but the same could be said about any drive. Not sure I'd ever return a failed drive - even if it had a 3 year guarantee.

Any thoughts on the 4TB desktop refurbs? I need a 4TB to strip and use as an internal media drive and I'd like a 4TB portable to act as a mirrored backup (using a scheduled robocopy or similar)?
can you stick this inside ps4 or its external only?
Out of stock, only tells you after registering and trying to submit order!!
Bought 2 x 2tb which are still in stock with the free delivery. Thanks op.

HUKD is pretty toxic re feedback HDD refurbs, but I can summarise my own experience as very positive. I ran tests on my 'new' 4GB WD refurb when it arrived recently, passed with flying colours. I have another 2GB refurb that's been running fine since 2012.

Don't store anything on it before dismantling, however, as you won't be able to recover that data (thanks to encryption on the bit of hardware in the enclosure, which you will unplug when you strip it).

Any free delivery codes going for the 2tb?

No they not, not always. And your comments is rather sweepingly generalised and inaccurate. I have refurbs that still going after several years. Basic common sense applied when it comes to important data when you use any drive applied and you'll be fine. (Keep backups of backups)

Point totally missed!! Go back and look at the post and you will see it was in jest and response to post about those who slate these drives.

People always say this on recertified drive threads. In my experience there's nothing wrong with them. In fact, I've had hard drives brand new from Amazon fail before these. It's simply luck, but many people on HUKD have never had an issue with failure of recertified drives.

You chat absolute fraff, I have a 3TB WD recertified drive running my Xbox one games for about 2 years and never had any issues. Great price to those that could grab one!
Out of stock, 2TB is available at £37.99.
Expired.
Damn, annoyed I missed out on this!

Plus postage which is a killer
Do you realise how much data one can fit in 3TB? Why voluntarily "choosing" to put an extra risk in the possibility of a failure?

This is just like using a condom with sellotape, I wouldn't risk it but some people seem to be penny wise pound foolish.

Good luck, with the recovery process and the pregnancy for that matter
Out of stock now
I deal with all brands of refurbished drives, some years and years old.

I find that WD is by far the most reliable. While seagate and fujitsu the least.

Really does depend what you plan on storing on it, A new drive from any retailer could fail anytime and putting home videos and pictures is probably a bit of a risk if it's your only backup. Big drives are fine for PS4/Xbox as anything can be downloaded again if the drive does fail. These have probably had more tests done on them than brand new ones.

For those of us who know about these things.
1. Keep copies of data in multiple places. Hard drive, cloud etc.
2. Wear multiple condoms when indulging in some nooky.
