They contain WD AV-25 drives which have a larger cache & are designed for better reliability. Whether you actually need that to make successful recordings from a TV is another matter. I use a crappy 128GB usb stick & never have a problem. AV25 Specs pdf


Yes, they are the same, labelled so the less enlightened can buy being confident it will work with their TV .


Does anyone know if there is any difference between these & the "My Passport TV-AV" ? Are the AV-TV drives designed differently or is this just marketing waffle on their behalf ? Thanks


I got a similar code via email, the code came with this in the smallprint:- This offer is not valid on the WD Employee Store, WD Education Store, WD Partner Stores, WD Recertified or Outlet Products. Shipping and sales tax excluded. There are so many exceptions I think the SITEWIDE bit in the "15% OFF SITEWIDE*"headline is completely misleading.


Where did you generate a code from?

Amazing deal, bought mine about a year ago for about £85 and thought that was a good deal! Can’t go wrong with WD wouldn’t buy anything else

Toshiba Canvio Ready 2TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive - £42 instore @ Asda
LocalLocalFound 9th JunFound 9th Jun
Bought This Today Instore at Asda for 42.00 cheapest about i think ideal for ps4

How much were the 500gb?


Looks like this is a drive with the connector soldered to the drive. Fine for game data or leaving on a desk etc, but not a serious portable external drive, as I'd be wary about trusting important data/backups etc to a device that is one yanked USB cable away from being a paperweight.


Great deal. Picked one up from the Teesside branch. They had some 500Gb, 1TB and a couple of 2TB ones left. Cheers OP!


I don't know where they're either, recently my Asda moved things around, I looked at where the USBs and Printer papers are but I didn't see any Blank CDs or Harddrives..


next too the computer stuff like blank cd's etc


Oooo I have PlexPass and didn't know about this... will check email!


Been waiting for these to come back in stock and bloody missed it.


weird this is soooo hot, i got a 4tb yellow last week for £51.99......they also gave me a 20% code off next purchase


My Book is 3.5" and needs a mains power input.


Do you know what Recertified means? If your answer is "yes", then you answered your own question.

Canon Speedlight 430 EX III-RT External Flash £269 -  potentially £149 with price match & Canon cash back (read description) @ John Lewis or buy directly @ HPreston £149 (with Canon Cashback)

Has anyone who ordered from HPreston had their order dispatched yet? Mine is still processing, despite ordering 4 days ago.


JL not match it.....In order to apply a price reduction on a purchase, the criteria in our pricing policy must be met. I regret that after review the request you have submitted does not match all or parts of this policy. Although Preston Media have a showroom, they do not clearly display prices in the showroom. Therefore, they are not a comparable retailer under the Never Knowingly Undersold policy.


Just had my price match declined on the basis that Preston Media don't "Have premises on a high street or comparable shopping destination". Apparently they are 'online only' (which they're aren't). Sounds like another case of John Lewis trying to wheedle their way out of abiding by their own policy again... Edit: Good job then that I gave up waiting for JL yesterday and just ordered from Preston themselves Edit 2: I've now had another reply and apparently they are now accepting that Preston Media is not an online only store but now are rejecting it as they do not have "clearly displayed prices" !! So basically someone at JL has trawled the pictures online and seen pictures inside their shop and as they do not have price labels on the shelves they won't price match! I even linked to this post and the person basically said that the price match which @cooldude01 was offered shouldn't actually have been offered in the first place.


Great deal if you can get the price match and cashback


No harm trying again , can always refer to this screenshot :)

He will be happy as this has band 20 as well.


I'm all for going USB-C everything should have it but I'd rather save the £10 buy the other one and pick up a USB-C adaptor to make it USB-C (they're both the same speed at USB 3 Gen 1), if they were the same price then this one all the way.


This should make @sam_of_london happier (in regards to a previous comment on a similar product without USB-C)

Given the design of SATA connectors (keyed, moulded and surface contact wafers i.e. no pins) it's difficult/impossible to see how a socket could be mis-aligned and a 'pin' be bent. I have two of these and a further single-slot device ..... all work flawlessly FWIW. Inateck are a decent brand In my opinion along with Anker & Aukey. USB-C is merely the type of connector.


Feedback re misaligned pins etc isn't inspiring confidence, despite the great price. Anyone got any recommendations for one that's more reliable than this? Want USB3 and/or USB-C for optimum speed, but it's also likely to be used with older systems that might only have usb2). Thanks all!


I had one of these the sata port in one bay was not lined up properly and as I inserted the drive it buckled two of the pins on the drive. One snapped off and another was badly damaged. I had to solder wires directly to the control board to get the data off the drive. Quit the opposite result from the backup I was creating...


Have a 3tb and a 1tb currently sat in this enclosure, plugged into the usb port on my TV, takes a while for the TV to compile what's on them but it works. Got about 10 old HDDs ranging from 250gb to 4tb and this is very handy as I struggle to remember what's on them at times. Haven't tried it on my Xbox yet tho.


That's not the same item though is it? It's a completely different make, at a completely different price two and a half times the price! Now please tell me what use a SATA interface has at anything above 640MB/s when the maximum theoretical throughput is 600MB/s, I mean if you like to waste money then that's fine by me but stop spreading poor information, again it helps no one.

The Ethernet port is for plugging into a wall, at a hotel room for instance, so you only pay for one internet service but you can connect multiple devices. That, or it’s an emergency router. The transfer feature does actually work well. SD card and USB stick/Hard Drive connected, go into the app and select what you want to move on the SD card and where you want to move it to. It’s as simple as that.


If you like fiddling, you can do the same (albeit DIY'd) with a Pi ZeroW. I had a play recently for something similar (wireless hotspot to transfer photos from phone to a HDD) and to stream from HDD to the phone using custom web pages etc. Allbeit is a very DIY project and nowhere near as 'nice' looking (the Pi laggy-banded round a 2.5 HDD and power bank lol), it is pretty cool to play around with.


I just got mine and I'm already disappointed. I thought I would be able to hook it up to a device that doesn't have wifi via an ethernet cable and then give that device an internet connection via the FileHub wifi. Turns out the ethernet port can only connect to a router. I've no idea why I would ever use it that way because my router has wifi (obviously) and plugging this into it would consume a valuable port. The one use case I can benefit from with this is being able to backup photos while on holiday, assuming SD card to USB transfer works as I expect. For that it's probably worth having but I was hoping to get more out of it.


I’ve been trying to connect it to my fire stick (apparently you can do it). But I have no idea how so I’ve just given up. Luckily I’ll use it as expandable storage for my phone and tablet.


It’s basic and doesn’t include certain functions. You’re best connecting to it directly in the WiFi section of your phone etc. Then going to your browser and typing in the address bar. You can connect from there and have access to a few more features.

Sorry to hear, but on the plus side though, you eventually came up trump's still? (no U.S. Presidential reference intended, hehehe). So you're now good to go. :-) Ps. Personally speaking, I haven't heard of Disk Drill before ... I'm going to have to research me some of that too I think?, lol. Thanx for that head's up also. :-)


I've managed to get 'Disk Drill' to access the drive (Foolishly HFS+ formatted originally so limited to Mac). Allows you to mount the faulty drive and from there could copy over all files to a new drive. Cost £62 which I didn't want to spend, but at least I've got everything back. Found a 10% discount code online for it (HLP-WNNCR)


Yes yes, I forgot about that File Scavenger data recovery software ... lol. Another useful (and free), data recovery software, is this one also, called PC Inspector File Recovery. Both are worth a looking into I reckon?. :-)


Driver issue so operating at USB 2.0, or you had it set as a Quick removal device instead of Performance with write caching. If the drive spins up you should try File Scavenger. Just for future reference, you should run Crystal Disk Info in Resident Mode, then it will alert you if one of your drives starts to have issues which normally means its about to fail, you can run Crystal Disk Info at startup.

Hi, also noticed you can enable Wireless availability times under Advanced, Advanced Setup, Wireless Settings. So if you only have mobile devices...


Hi, If you check under the options Advanced / Block Services it looks like you can add rules to block a range of ports and then under Schedule set the times you need to block access.


not really as they have not taken any money off you, it would not be of any benefit to tgem.
