      The deal I linked to was a price error. Some orders were fulfilled, some were canceled.

    •  

      yup the 4tb it was $1 more, but only some people who was lucky enough to have it delivered, most order got cancelled with $30 GC.

    3TB ones are still $99 at OfficeWorks. Unless you must have a WD right now, I would get a 3TB one or wait for better deal.

    I'd avoid the WD brand portable hard drives. They solder the USB connector directly to the drive so if something goes wrong with the USB connector or the circuit board for it you have no way to recover the data.

    Other brands use a small connector inside the case to convert sata to USB so if something goes wrong you can open the case and pull out the drive then connect it to your PC using sata directly or put it into an empty 2.5" usb enclosure to keep using it as a portable drive.

      Thanks for that info, is seagate same solder as WD?

      It's not true on data recovery. You just need a donor board that's also the same portable drive (OR, if you somehow know the equivalent SATA drive, a donor board from that SATA drive is okay too). Even if you have a donor board, you still need to transplant the BIOS.

      I had a portable Seagate HDD failed recently. While I was able to try a different SATA to USB3 adapter to verify it was a board issue, I still needed a donor board and had to do the BIOS swap. When a board died on a SATA drive, you still cannot do anything. The key advantage of a normal SATA drive + a converter board is that you could use it on a PC/laptop using SATA (or if you had an old laptop/PC with eSATA but only USB 2.0, you could use an enclosure supporting eSATA for faster speed). Or, you will plug and un-plug the USB a lot and could snap part of the board (so better to snap the converter board than the HDD board I suppose). Two of my mates had HDD failures recently, both were hard drive head faults, those really need pros to do data recovery.
