Wow they went quick
None in stock by the looks of it otherwise I would have had one.

can't find it on your link ? thanks
To save some money? Just my first thought.
Ah that makes sense - even to me!! Thanks guys.
It's not a computer, it is only external storage. You would typically purchase this if you needed additional storage for an existing laptop/desktop or to be able to make a backup of your files. Or, to connect to a games console to provide extra storage space. From what you have said, this isn't what you're looking for.
You also need to add a computer has this is only an external harddrive.
Excuse my ignorance here - so I just add monitor, keyboard and windows plus any Microsoft package and I'm good to go? Looking for a PC for daughter to do school work. Thanks (from a technophobe!!)
There is another existing deal for this and everybody tells to avoid any deal at all price with eBuyer......
20+ purchases. Not a single issue to date. Super efficient and reliable. Just read their T&C. It is all in there and they guarantee no extra costs.
I know just wondering what peoples experience of Amazon Global had been like so far, seems too good be true buy cheap and avoid admin fees from couriers
The whole point of Amazon Global is that you are paying them to pay the customs. Their guarantee is that if it costs more than they charged, they will NOT charge you any more, but if it costs less, they WILL refund you. Personally never had a refund or heard of anyone who has but their charge always seems a little on the low side of what customs would cost me after the event if I had shipped it myself anyway.
How are Amazon Global at paying customs? Anyone had any problems? This is the only worry I have buying from amazon.com £30 saving would be easily wiped out by problems with vat
Oh, I know. It was just to counter the usual folk who come on and state "already posted/cold as posted cheaper". This is a decent drive and I haven't seen it at this price before. Hopefully will help someone else as well.
Overview section: "Compatible with Windows®-based PCs with Thunderbolt™ 3 port."
Gotta love how the discount is for students who are supposed to be studying and not playing games. Haha. Hot deal tho!
There's a review here:
Was in curry's earlier, they had one in there, this thing is huge! My desktop is smaller than this thing (gaming rig not mini itx btw) and not such an awkward shape.
Its designed for laptops genius. You turn a work laptop with a powerful cpu but no dedicated gpu into quite a powerful gaming laptop. Obviously you cant put desktop GPUs into a laptop. Although these things are generally very buggy.
Avid porn collectors?
Is this a good deal to buy and replace (sell) the internal drive with something like a used Seagate 10TB IronWolf Pro 3.5 ? Or are there better (read: cheaper, but Xbox One X compatible) USB 3 enclosures ?
Plenty of people. A single 40 min 4K vid can be around 7.5 Gig.
My suggestion is spend £3 more and get the 2.5 inch version. It's about 8 times smaller (!) and doesn't need a separate power supply, it's powered over USB. There really is no need to get a 3.5inch drive unless you're running applications directly from the drive and you normally wouldn't do that from an external drive. It's more than worth an additional £3
This is one of those 'how long is a piece of string' questions.
Did Gearbest get rid of their other warehouses?
ordered one. cheers!
Good item good price. If you're shopping around UASP is what you're after and this is the cheapest I've seen that. I have one here sitting around I paid around £8 but that was from the United Kingdom.
Link to this deal/seller appreciated please
Or more expensive Chinese domestic market phones. They use QR codes to pay rather than NFC.
Be prepared for a very long wait if you order this . Its not even scheduled to be released until the end of this month . Its a new chipset , so more likely to suffer delays than an established chipset phone. Its going to be late May before you see it ( more likely to be June )
Ty ordered. Says only 5 left.
black same price
Cold. £2.50 on eBay.
Make sure you read the exclusion criteria for these: "**NOT compatible with Wester Digital IDE hard drive"
How about using a dock? Amazon
Can anyone recommend a good quality caddy for 3.5" drives? They have my old photos and I would like an easy way to view them on varios devices. Thanks
I had one of these and it fell apart. Badly designed for frequent disk exchanges. Now use a superior and more expensive tool free usb3 model. These are great for us with plenty of large capacity HDDs displaced by newer SSDs. Both for backups and for data such as JPGs, MP3s & MP4s which take space but don"t need full SATA bandwidth.
Sounds like the traffic is light on the A14, pop there quick and get me one at the same time. :)
Nearest store with any stock is 51.7 miles away, and will be ready for collection in 30 minutes
Good price. Voted hot. Thanks for sharing (highfive)
No, checked with them over the phone and will not do it. Wanted something else from their website, but in my local store, so asked for delivery at my local shop, they did not do it.
Do Maplin do free delivery to your local store?
I have collected the parcel from the mother in law and I can also confirm receipt of the 8tb drive. Great deal, thanks op.
Mine was delivered today so yeah, some of us are getting them.
Just to add it was actually delivered by Hermes.
Ordered last Thursday night, had delivery confirmation and mother in law confirms package arrived today but away until Saturday so can't confirm 100%, but it looks like some people got lucky.
#metoo with several devices failing within a year no mind a longer warranty period. Legal or not it's a rip off. Don't use Ebuyer any more after 10+ years of being a custmoer.
Used to shop with these all the time but amazon seems to be pretty good with customer service, even currys were good when i had to take back a Razor mouse and a Logitech steering wheel over 6 months old they just replaced no questions asked. Worth paying a bit extra for decent service . consumer rights
Reported my D.O.A. Lacie external drive on Monday for a R.M.A,, not heard a thing yet. Total Gangsters, NEVER again.
They can be okay when it comes to (the now few and far between) daily deals with free delivery, flash drives and the like but yeah, I would never spend over a tenner with them – anything high value its Amazon or similar even if I have to pay substantially more. Don’t just take my word for it, google “ebuyer proportionate refund” and see some of the horror stories. There’s a recent example on the MSE forum from last September (second search result down) funny enough for a Toshiba Hard Drive and it basically sums up the whole Ebuyer RMA after six month experience (Sorry for not linking the thread, not sure if I can link other forums here)
Thanks for the insight. Personally, I have only ever brought small (less than £30) items from ebuyer and not had any problems, but after learning of this, I will not be using them again EVER! I'd rather pay a little more for added piece of mind. AMAZON for pretty much everything here!
= a general purpose 6TB drive. That makes the deal a lot more interesting :)
ST6000DM003 is what I got out of my one of these a couple of months ago.
I have a mains powered Seagate 500GB hdd that I have had for 12 years although admittedly it's probably only had 5 years use in that time.
Both the ST2000DM001 and ST3000DM001 have very high failure rates. You seem to have gotten a pretty decent batch of the 3TBs, it seems - people even started class action lawsuits over the very high failure rates. (Also to the above, Seagate = Maxtor, they've been the same thing since around the 7200.11 days.)
Seagate come out poorly on Backblaze, don't they? I just wonder how well that translates to domestic use though, with less power on hours, more thermal cycling and usually less vibration ... We have 60+ drives (yeah, sad!), of which 8 of Seagate's 3TB ST3000DM001 are all fine but both 2TB Barracudas were replaced early. I monitor Smart using several tools and move ones with CRC or pending sectors to backups after running surface tests.
Oh it’s now corrected, ordered one. Yippee (highfive)
Still £59.99 when in basket.
Click & Collect from a local Ryman store, FREE
One penny short to get free delivery (annoyed)
A used hard drive from a shop that won't exist in a few months. No thanks.
Poor drive. Not very gentle!
Inside there are 2x2TB in Raid 0
Exactly... I'd taken WD Outlet over this (I know that's not a trendy thing to say and just waiting for the 'you're an idiot for buying refurb hard disk' crew to arrive). I think a new drive and also 2.5" portable is only £10 more (if that)?
Looks like only that the My Passport support hardware encryption AES-256 bits in case you want to protect your hard drive. I swapped from the My Passport to the Elements to same 3 quids as I don't need to protect the data.
What's the difference between this and the £3 cheaper WD? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0713WPGLL/ref=psdcmw_430544031_t1_B01LQQH86A
Good deal. Paid a ton a few months ago. Heat.
Mines just full of .mkv for my Plex to stream to the Ps4, I remember when I thought 20gb was big lol
Good price. I have 2 of these connected to my XB1X as some of the enhanced games are seriously LARGE, and they are ideal. Heat added :)
Unbelievable. Ordered Friday and the drive was delivered today at 3pm, I`m not even on Prime (shock)
The question is, does the warranty include data recovery? If not, then what's the point of a warranty if you lose your data?
I'll bite at this price.
I think this has 3yr warranty while the elements has 2year (I think, you can recheck if you like)
Wouldn't all the software you get with the passport be useless though for the xbox.
Thanks very much for this info, kevan. I will open mine after the warranty is up (I've got Seagate recovery warranty). Perhaps it will fit my Latitude 5540.
These are sniffing around in stock in quite a few postcode areas in maplins for £83 edit:. They have now bumped the price up to over 90 odd...No wonder the company is going into liquidation , They also have the Samsung T5 USB3.1 SSD 250GB = £100.13p Cheapest I have seen that drive for a while and it is quality. edit: T5 still available thou for £100.39p That is still a decent price for this and quite a few dotted about in postcode areas. Worth a look as they may just be close to you for pickup if you deciding to get this Hard drive. Best Regards,
Anyone know how long the warranty is on these? edit: nvm, reading amazon reviews > 2 yrs.
100% SATA interface...Just the actual drive is slightly thicker 15:mm approx compared to the standard thickness of the 2TB version. Will fit in the 1st gen PS4 no problem, but slim and pro would need to open them (voiding any warranty) up and mod the cages. Same may also apply for some laptops, You may squeeze it in some or need to mod others. The other recent deals posted for the 4TB WD alternatives will have no such luxury's and once they die,Then you will have a monumental task to extract any personal data if it is important. There has been a lot of portable hard drive deals lately and I suspect prices may drop a bit more ? as manufactures must be getting ride of older stock, ready for the new breeds. Best Regards,
Are you sure about the connector? I know the 2tb has a sata connector inside because I opened it and use the drive in a laptop. But I haven't opened my 4tb drive because it wouldn't fit in a laptop (too thick).
The website has now upped all the prices :-( ;(
I've still got HDDs from 20 years ago that still work. Doesn't mean that they're particularly reliable. It just means that they haven't been stressed to the point of failure. All HDDs fail - WD ones aren't any different. The WD in my Y50-70 failed within 1 year. Buy a reconditioned drive, and the average failure rate will be sooner than a non reconditioned drive, so over a period of X year, you'll be buying more replacement (reconditioned) drives.
I've got an original elements 1tb drive. It's so old it's got the rubber cushions and usb a the printer connector. Its the one with the green drive in that can be ripped out and another drive put in before WD wised up. These wear stats are meaningless for me as I've never had a wd drive fail. If your mirroring your data anyway why does it matter you've got recert drives. If you don't mind the copy feckery then you can save good money.
Fair enough. Good to know, thanks. Out of interest, in your personal experience - how many reconditioned drives have you had that failed you within say, roughly 3 years? Statistically of course, one would expect people purchasing these drives to be posting on these threads reporting that their reconditioned drive failed within x months or y years. These drives seem to come up fairly frequently here and get a decent amount of heat. I just searched "reconditioned" and of the threads that went back some 11 years, I found just one comment about 2 years ago from someone who had an issue with small amount of lost storage space after a year. There's a fair few comments warning that these are damaged/will fail /won't last long etc but the scores of people saying their reconditioned drive failed them are oddly absent. Maybe I missed something.. (skeptical) I'll be taking the plunge and purchasing, fingers crossed!
I just bought a 4TB mycloud for £59.60 after using the 20% off code they sent me https://www.wdc.com/en-gb/products/wd-recertified/my-cloud.html#RWDBCTL0040HWT-EESN my 4th rectified Hdd and all are working
