WD Elements External Desktop Hard Drive 6TB $158.23 + Delivery ($0 with Prime/ $39 Spend) @ Amazon AU

220

Flash deal, going pretty quick.

Shuckable drives. Needs a pin mod with kapton tape to run in a pc (if a white drive). Can also run a sata to molex connector to bypass the pin that blocks the white drives on a normal sata connection in a pc.

3camels hasn't updated the price yet btw. Anyway, it's $5 off all time low.

10 TB deal from a few days ago. Lots of details in there about the shucking/mods required/etc,

    Was keen for the 8 or 10tb, but this is interesting

    Should really learn about hard drives and what you need to do when shucking them if your going to state info about modding the drive. All depends on your Power Supply.
    Most newer Power Supplies are ok with the 3.3v on the WD drives. As they usually have four pin SATA connections (some PSUs come with 4 and 5 pin SATA connections for you to choose). If it does have 5pins then it recognises the 3.3v and won't allow the computer to read it. Basically 4pins good 5pins bad.

      As linked to in OP, all the information a person needs is already in the 10TB thread,
      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/500453

      You even supplied some of the information in the thread.

        Yeah which should have been listed instead of having people browse through the entire comment section to find it and giving info that can be untrue

          Fair enough.

          But, I actually never knew that some newer PSU's came with 4 pin sata instead or 5 pin connections prior to reading your comment 20 mins ago.

          I only knew kapton tape was needed for white drives, or to use a molex to sata.

          No one is perfect in knowledge of everything, ok. :/
