WD Elements 6TB External Hard Drive $189 C&C (N/A) (or +$5 Delivery) @ JB HI FI

890

Not sure what drive is in these however, 6TB for $189 seems like a pretty good price.

Delivery is $5 to my address, not sure if it varies.

Update: C&C no longer available

    Bought two of the 4tb versions a while back. First one lasted about 6 months then died so I took the hard drive out and put it in my computer. Plugged the other one in and it lasted a week so I did the same. They work great as internal drives though.

      What type of drive was inside?

        Can't remember but I think they were green WD 7200

      How hard was it to crack open the shell and use the internal hard disk?

        Usually very easy

      This is a bargain, it was only a year / year and a half ago ? that the WD 2tb's (before they were replaced by 3tb/4tb's) and 4tb's were going for similar prices ($189-$229). Shame the deal has come at the wrong time as I don't need more external storage yet (only picked up a few 3tb drives for my ps4/xbox/new laptop backup over the past few months).

    •  

      I have literally had over a dozen of the 4TB WD Elements drives without a failure. Some are being used as long term storage but a couple for media so spin up a lot. Are you letting them get hot? I actually have an external fan blowing on all my drives in summer, but it's been the Seagates that I've had die a lot.

      •  

        Yeah, of the 20 or so externals I've had over the years, 1 was a WD 2.5' HDD from 2000 that I kept hot plugging and the other 3 were Seagates.

    Gosh i should have grabbed one earlier at miranda - they must have had 1 left.

    Order two 4tb from pc byte on the 10% ebay deal - another 6tb for a decent price - almost cheaper than the wds in my NAS !!

    Edit : ordered - then found only 1 here @merrylands jb

    Canned order and did the ozbargain thing of saving $5 on shipping !!!!!

    Got one! Thanks OP!

    Will this work with my 2005 Camry?

      Only if you have a flux capacitor fitted…

  •  

    mmm not bad. - picked up one. hope they last a few years

  •  

    the only problem with this deal is you have to wait a month to get it, as they are doing a pre-order thing to beable to sell at a epic price

    •  

      Not in my case. Ordered yesterday, then got an email confirmation this morning:
      "Your order xxxxxxxxxxxx is prepared and is about to be picked up by our carrier."
