Nice find. Gonna swap out a few of my servers HDDs with these.
Very good price, took the 5months payment option too!
Can this be used in any standard windows 10 desktop?

Optimised for server use where they are on for hours at a time. But can be used in a standard desktop yes.

Can this be used in any standard windows 10 desktop?


Definitely yes. But it's optimised for San/Nas use.

For desktop you can get away with cheaper drives.

Use a SSD for a boot drive and a HD as a steam library /media drive.
Can this be used for cctv or is it better to stick with purple for that

Can this be used for cctv or is it better to stick with purple for that


You could .. but it's better to stick to purple as it's designed for continuous writes and lower to none error recovery which is fine for CCTV DVR usage.

Reds are for Nas/San /data center type usage .
Continuous usage, mainly reads, large buffer, high quality parts, long warranty, and red plus will even do a staggered boot spin to reduce startup power usage and will modulate Thier spin to reduce vibrations in a cabinet.
I bought one of these at £160 last year at black Friday and it has been at £180-200 ever since. Great buy!
Now all we need is for the 10 TB disks to be discounted. Still a great find.
Great find. Order placed.
Cheers
Lets face it its Amazon and thier fraud with that in mind. Are these grey imports, can you register the warranty, what is the warranty because with amazon you will get just 3 months.lots of grey or fake drives sold on Amazon!

just checked and first comments I come to are no warrant, no 3 yrs, cant be registered! Amazon needs sorting out bt trading standards when it comes to electronics especially pc components. Going to see if another provider will price match.

That was from 2016. If you look deeper, there were cases where the OEM versions were sourced from abroad but not the retail versions. One such quote
'
WD support suggested that Amazon sourced their OEM drives from different countries and that about 50% of them would register as OEM and only have 12 month’s warranty. Amazon identifies that the drives only come with a 12-month warranty so if you register one and it only gives you a 12 -month warranty you have no grounds to complain.

So in summary spending the extra £14.00 for the retail version gives you the peace of mind of knowing that you definitely have a three-year warranty.,

Ideal, so all that nonsense with them has been sorted? I may try a 6tb then, regarding reliability we all know thats pot luck these days!
If you want reliability, go with tosh HDDs.

Hoping so, I'm going to register straight away and if they dont show 3 year warranty, im sending back. Loads reviews say 3 years so I'm hoping its either old or 3rd party sellers who were selling the greys. These days Amazon reviews are best ignored, its impossible to see through the noise. It's even worse with multiple products grouped together. As for reliability, nothing has ever been as good for me as my pre Seagate samsung 204s. They are all still running long after I've binned newer drives from pretty much everyone else

How does this work? Is it an Amazon credit card?
Great deal, heat from me!
What the process for checking and registering for the 3 year warranty?
shonkygeeza02/12/2019 09:56

I think it's account specific, but it's just a payment plan with themselves, no credit card, nor credit check. Definitely no interest either

Same as I went 3tb in the end.
What's the process for registering warranty on these?
Did anyone else manage to nab the 8TB for £160.99 last night? There was only 2 left when I bought.
Just wondering how many there was, as it went super quick compared to the other sizes.

That's why I'm getting mine sent to my local pickup! Can't trust these drivers!
I used to be tempted by this but personally I'd sack these off and shuck drive's instead. Picked up a 12tb the other day for £160. Can't see me ever going back to the over priced internal reds.

And you have it on in a NAS or server 24/7?

Sure do, ran a full test on it and the drive stats match one of my existing reds. Speeds the same, drive head parking is off etc. Only thing is the drive code for the 12tb shows nothing in searches as it appears to be a new model. But looks fine to me so far.
