Like I said, sorry, "chirped", I noticed they've now increased in value since I got mine. Though it's possible someone selling those at £36 would actually take £25 each if you were buying 50 all at once... give it a go?

I agree £20-£25 is the sweet spot for 1TB but I've got too many now so my new aim is £10-£15 (cheeky) before I purchase any more. Found a 2TB a long time ago for £18 and 4TB for £40 not too long ago either so it's possible

new meanings to sticky notes :{ postits certainly seem to be an inefficient way for you maintain your current info - better keep it in the mind palace!

fanpages

No, it has just been said (a few times in the last few weeks at Reddit.com) that I have a collection of Post-it Notes & I get very excited over them. The person repeating those claims does seem to need psychological help though. I don't need a 'database' to reach that conclusion.

this is a trick question right? obviously depends on the things like the size of the notes, your handwriting size and any shorthand notations you are using (cheeky)

I've just posted my first draft of an FAQ to go with WD recertified offers, after seeing the same questions and comments over and over again. https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/faq-megathread-for-western-digital-wd-recertified-drives-and-nas-2928847 Please feel free to comment, correct, add to etc.

ElBuc

Has anyone received confirmation their item is out for delivery yet?

trakker1

I agree for your uses then yes this is not worthy of a purchase, I’ve had servers in the past including the little HP Gen8 which was a great low cost little 4 bay server, but for my needs now with less time to tweak settings I find the EX2 Ultra I bought a bit back good enough for the family photos and videos. I no longer bother with Plex servers and I wouldn’t recommend this for it either. I knew when I posted this deal it wouldn’t get the most heat with there only being a couple in stock at time of posting but hopefully a couple of members that have similar needs to mine have managed to pick up a cheap NAS. Anyway I appreciate the time you have taken to reply and for not throwing the toys out the pram like many do (excited) take care!

jasee

I post deals because they're cheaper. Sometimes I recommend them also. Hard drives: I want bigger and bigger hard drives! As it happens I have three microservers (four disks or more in each), two real servers and a few pcs. All have their uses. Some of my servers sometimes just run as workstations, with or without server software, why not? Nowadays (as I said in a previous post) a two disk NAS isn't much use, I don't think. With the move to 4K and even larger and larger photo files.

Not strictly true, it depends on the power supply you have for your pi, mine runs fine from the pi's USB port but I'm using a 2.5amp power supply. A good power supply for the pi should handle the current draw from a portable external drive

phuqfaze

google unlimited music storage no? just like photos?

aor5000

I can't really. I have about 1.7 tb of music. This is the reason I bought the 2tb. Im sure Google wouldn't support that amount either.

ElBuc

Thanks very much for the feedback, I think I agree with most of it. I'll try to trim them to get to the point a bit quicker. Disc was my bad spelling, disk was in phrases I lifted from elsewhere ;) - I think there's some rule about mentioning eBay here, only certain offers are allowed, so I used my friend's nickname for emphasis... Why is everyone so defensive about eBay? It is generally a wonderful place but there is so many dodgy sellers, and buyers it can be a minefield and there moderation and support sucks big time.

Gage84

I got a 2TB recertified drive a few weeks back from a deal on here. It's going ok, however I think they are slightly loud with the platter head reading/writing or it might just be me.

On a serious note is there any advantage or disadvantage between the so called older model to new one ?

These drives have been returned to WD and they have wiped them clean, 'tested' them and are reselling them cheaper as already used or returned drives. Never had a problem with mine as of yet but you never know...

Yup paid £31.99 for a 2tb recertified a few weeks back.

amour3k

I bought the 4TB version of these same Western Digital portable hard drives for 1p short of £100 NEW!, from Maplin, back near the beginning of March 2018!. And Curry's/PC World were selling the exact same 4TB Western Digital portable hard drive NEW too!, for 1p short of £100 also, in February 2018. So £29.49 for 1TB? - and second hand at that? (too expensive). Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, so it's not a Deal for me, sorry.

ElBuc

Yes, testing is easy and cheap, as is putting on a new casing. Replacing circuit board is fairly straightforward (so long as they have the means to re-marry the card with drive, re encryption.) On the other hand, opening up the drive and replacing damaged heads, discs or other bits in a sterile (dust free etc) environment is way too much trouble. I've heard people say WD drives must be bad due to so many recertified for sale, but in actual fact there are not very many, hence everyone dives when they are in stock. Dear Mods, is there any way a standard FAQ could be attached to all WD rectified offers, the same questions and arguments come up again and again with every offer posted: "that's a lot of data to lose" etc etc.

EndemicAlarm

Yes. The point is that it's transparent and hardware-accelerated by the drive. And you'd have to know their drives are insecure in the first place. Though if your computer is vaguely new it'll have hardware encryption acceleration to run it from that end instead, to make Bitlocker an alternative.

GwanGy

There s really no such thing as a refurbished hard drive .. these would be returns that have been sent back, tested , and found to be perfectly ok. Or otherwise end-of-line stock. Does anybody think that they take drives apart (and sell at £30) ? No profit in that

sam01792

I had a feeling this comment was coming. My understanding is that we are carrying over the current laws from the EU agreement so one can only assume it will still stand...non the less, you would still have a 3 year warranty with WD themselves.

Ian2014

So where does the 2 years under EU consumer law stand after Brexit in 2019?

sam01792

The warranty is with WD themselves so the fact Maplin is closing down doesn’t make a difference luckily. You’d also be covered by EU consumer law on any electrical goods from the original manufacturer for 2 years from proof of purchase I believe.

mercutio98uk

It... should be obvious, but there's a genuine lack of realisation among a decent number of folks that M.2 has more than 1 interface style. Still a good price, but, as said, this is basically no different to a regular 2.5" box sata SSD with sata cable and power connector in speeds, it's just a good bit tidier. Some laptops have a slot for this as a drive option, makes for a very strong choice, M.2 sata SSD and a big, slow mechanical in the drive bay.

fiqqer

The price for an M2 is good so in my case it will allow the 2.5" ssd caddy to be removed and the battery replaced with a larger size. So there are benefits to this over an SSD. So based solely on a price for an M2 this is a good deal. If you dont need the extra battery space then I would prefer a standard 2.5" SSD as it is more versatile, and have considerably longer life than this - ie the black version of this has a claimed enduranceof 80tb. The Crucial MX500 and Samsung Evo have at least double that.

McTabish

Good price. Heat from me. This might sound obvious but also remember that this is SATA SSD and not NVMe. So while it is m.2 form factor, it is no faster than a standard SSD. There is a WD Black NVMe for about £77

decanay

A bit off topic, but does anyone know of any good deals on a 40/42mm M.2? I see all these good deals for M.2's but never on those. I have a slim notebook that only takes those sizes which is frustrating. Good deal btw (highfive)

It's probably worth mentioning that the SSD in this deal (WDS256G1X0C) is due to be replaced by a faster model with higher endurance very soon (Model No.: WDS250G2X0C). - Sequential Read up to (MB/s): 3000 (from 2050) - Sequential Write up to (MB/s): 1600 (from 700) - Random Read up to (IOPS): 220k (from 170k) - Random Write up to (IOPS): 170k (from 130k) - Endurance (TBW) 200TB (from 80TB) Review: The Western Digital WD Black 3D NAND SSD Review: EVO Meets Its Match When you take into account the ~29% performance drop you get with NVMe SSDs and the Spectre/Meltdown patches it makes sense to buy a faster SSD.

ElBuc

I think I'm best off getting a USB 3 enclosure with cheap SSD inside.

FireOnAWire

Unsurprisingly Apple uses a proprietary format PCIe SSD so upgrading is as difficult as it gets. Using off the shelf parts requires no courage which is why Apple chooses to make their own interface standard that nobody else in the world uses. Therefore the only way to upgrade your storage would be to either buy a specific drive designed for macbooks like you linked on the other thread or perhaps buy one that someone has removed from a similar model macbook.

ElBuc

Thanks for the info. Do you know what the specific features I should be looking for are?
