No doubt some will say WD are shite and should never buy Re-certified Drive from the Manufacture but I thought for 39 (with Code and Free Shipping) was good value, also got another 7% plus a 2.50 bonus off that with Quidco, if it tracks.  :y

Wont be using as a Main Bak Up Drive probably 2nd or 3rd just in case scenario or try it on the TV Port for Recordings?. By the way, dont think these are Sata Drives inside but the later dedicated USB Hardware in case your thinking about breaking into the encolosure  :-\

1TBs available for 24 and 3Tb for cant remember now, use Code 5OFFWDUK for 5 off an already Discount Offer Price.  ;)

WD and Seagate I tend to avoid but with all HDDs it is the case they all fail at some point. :-[

Nought from with WD - they had a reliability issue a while back. Or Seagate for that matter.

Re-certified probably needs clarity before I'd rely on it, but as long as its not the only backup....
