Pretty decent and fair if you ask me and I paid £64 for a WD Green 1TB a few months back,

It now says "click buy" to pre-order now

CCL are expecting a delivery tomorrow and, from my experience, they are excellent with pre-order fulfilments

If you're awaiting the usual Amazon price match, it'll be for the "Frustration Free" packaging version which went oos on the last price match @ £84.73 - and is now showing as "1 to 3 months dispatched" @ £87.49

I also eventually received my last TCB payment ok from CCL

Amazon have now price matched CCL @ £84.73 - AGAIN!! - for the FFP version.

Select the FFP option in the menu
amazon.co.uk/dp/…FPU

There is a "Usually dispatched within 1 to 3 months" tag but if you prefer to order from Amazon with Frustration Free Packaging, they usually deliver sooner.
You could try Flubit re the Amazon price

The extra year's warranty is only worth the price difference (£8 - £10)

So this is a cheaper option - At the same deal value - If you don't think that the drive will fail between exactly 3 and 4 years old
And Amazon are oos anyway

If these drives fail - it'll be in the first year

In 3 years time (which these drives are covered for) they'll probably be replaced by a WD 3tb SSD Red version anyway

Why spend £10 on a "chocolate tea pot" Extended Warranty?

I read it was a good idea to change these every two years in your NAS, so good price.

I got these for £89 a while back and I don't get why these deals get so hot - it's few pence less after a few months.
It may make a difference if you're buying in huge quantities, but I doubt many are buying more than 3.
An ok deal, but not as hot as it is now.

The difference between the prices on WD Reds over the last year has been 10% - max

But that's what HUKD is about - finding the best deal

£84.73 is the cheapest ever price for this drive (discounting Flubit where the 3 year warranty might come under scrutiny) so HUKD members can only vote on current market prices - which have slowly dropped

100+ now available at CCL!

Why say its £10 extra for the extra year warranty it isnt its around £5
Edited by: "copystuff" 31st Jul 2014

Looking around different sites i wonder if these drives are price fixed as there all about the same price

The price is up and down every few hours with Amazon
The FFP 3y warranty version is now £88.20 and the 4y warranty version is £90.84
Both have a "Usually dispatched within 1 to 3 months" tag

CCL currently have stock @ £84.73

It's your choice but If you go through TCB, that's eventually another £2 back from CCL which brings it to a difference of approx. £8 and the prices will probably change again soon

Update: Back down to £84.73 with Amazon again - see what I mean!
