Best it's been for a while, considering you're only paying an extra £5 over the 3TB version.

Should help those NAS enthusiastics looking to expand their storage.

Thanks ordered, these are normally around the £125 so was waiting for it to drop.

This or ironwolf?

The WD Red brand have a much better reputation for NAS reliability. I'm sure the Ironwolf brand would suffice, but a lot of people opt to pay a premium for Red.

Edit: I've just checked and the Ironwolf 4TB is only £4 cheaper. Definitely worth buying the WD Red at this price difference.

Wouldn't buy from them ever again.

For a fucking NAS drive, jesus. The very nature of this drive is meant to be paired.

I've submitted the price to Amazon, hoping they might match it.

good deal! hope amazon match

LOLOL only one drive! Idiots. Would not touch them with a bargepole. If your drive breaks - as they do sometimes - you'll have one hell of a fight on your hands. Go almost literally anywhere else.

Gon

Different price to what i'm getting (127.94), and its product page won't load either?

Yeah all gone

I have 4x of these in my NAS and they're been solid drives, running 24/7 for months. I think I paid nearer the £120 mark for mine so £99 is a great deal in my opinion.

I have a total of six of these in two NAS and one drive died shortly after the three year warranty expired. I managed to replace it by getting a heavily discounted faulty drive from Amazon Warehouse and took it through the WD warranty process. That worked well but was quite a slow process.

You sent in the HDD that had died and was now out of warranty in place of the faulty one purchased from Amazon Warehouse? Do WD not check the serial numbers against purchase/registration date?

For future on anything like this you would have easily got a replacement by telling them (WD or the shop that sold it to you, both are liable under UK Consumer Law) that despite it being technically out of warranty, you would have reasonably expected it to last longer than 4 years.

Did this with a TV that failed 2 months outside of warranty and got a £90 cheque from Tesco to pay towards repair or replacement.

No. The Amazon Warehouse drive was still within warranty. 18 months only. Somebody must have returned it to Amazon and then they sent it out to me. I was quite happy to get it replaced by WD as I had only paid £70 and new ones cost £120 then.

No. That is now how it works with Amazon Warehouse. They just offer you a full refund or a partial refund if you decide to keep the item. That was the option I chose as the drive was still within warranty.

I was referring to the one that died shortly after it's warranty, you would still be able to use consumer law to get that one replaced or repaired or partial money towards a new one. I was not talking about your AMazon Warehouse purchase that occurred after the drive had failed.

Which section of UK Consumer Law would one need to quote to a manufacturer/seller in order to make a claim in a similar situation to yours where a product becomes faulty or dies outside of the manufacturers warranty?

Thanks.

It's all covered under The Consumer Rights Act 2015, there's various examples here -which.co.uk/con…act

The specific section is probably Chapter 2 Section 23, here's a link legislation.gov.uk/ukp…ted
