    Ordered 2 when they were $290. And ordered another 2 now. Was just about to post the deal from my CCC alert.

  •  

    Can anyone confirm is these run ok hooked up to a computer for extended periods - ie to seed torrents off? This is really an internal drive housed in an external USB container right?

  •  

    Damn, gone up to $290 now

    Bloody hell! Just signed up for a prime account, go to purchase and its gone up $60…

    •  

      I don't want to get your hopes up but if it's an item stocked but amazon themselves, maybe try contact the customer support and ask if they can do anything for you for that.

    Thank God it was the 10tb drive

    Disappeared for me while I enabled cashrewards,bummer

    Super easy to Shuck, don't watch the YouTube videos with credit cards trying to separate, or pry it open.
    Hold one hand on top, grab around the front and just pull, it'll slide right open.

      Thanks for the tip!

      that would likely break the internal tabs

      better to get a proper prying tool

      • +1 vote

        I dunno I've had 4 of these in the past, the last time I broke one was trying to pry it. I can check the last two enclosures but they came out pretty easy with a quick slide. It seems they go in on like rails and then the tabs click at the end, so sliding them apart just releases those clips.

        No breaks at all with this method, even put it back together and in the box in case there's any issues in the future.

      Great tip! Just did this on one from the previous deal that I hadn't shucked yet. Watched a bunch of videos, with credit cards pry tools.

      This way was so simple and easy. If you have another person, just get one person to put one hand on top and one on the bottom of the mesh, then get the other person to slide the case off.

      Easy to do with one person too, just do it slowly. No breakages. Bend the internal plastic bracket off and the rubber stops will drop out. Undo the two screws that hold the usb bracket one and you're done.

    The 8tb is still quite cheap, however, they have the 12tb model listed now.

    However the price for an extra 2tb is crazy.

  •  

    Hesitated while in my cart - already got three of these in my NAS. Should have pulled the trigger!

  •  

    I already have one of these. What's the best way to convert to a nas. I don't have a usb router.

    • +1 vote

      Best way? Easiest way? Or cheapest way?

      I have one attached to a raspberry pi running plex. While definitely not the best, it does the job I want (zero redundancy, simple file serving with no transcoding). Depends on what your needs, wants, and budget are.

      •  

        Hey mate,
        How's Plex performance on RPi? Was it good? Any delay in streaming? Especially contents requiring transcoding?
        Been thinking to do this setup.
        What OS you run it on?
        Any online instruction to set this up?

        •  

          I don't do any transcoding on it. Simple file sharing with Plex database. I wouldn't think it would fare well with transcoding.

          I have it set up connected to "gigabit" ethernet ("gigabit", because I have a RPI3B+ which maxes out at something like 300Mbit). Videos load up as soon as the hard drive spins up (instantly if I'm just going to the next episode, a few seconds if it is a 4K rip and the hdd was asleep).

          I am using Raspbian and followed this guide: https://medium.com/@nem25/plex-media-server-on-raspberry-pi-...

    back to $290 for me

  •  

    Are Elements encrypted?

  •  

    Would of bought but I don't have much data, already have a RAID, a few other drives new I need to use and between cloud… don't really need it. But insane deal!

  •  

    god damn it. missed it.

    Back to $290. And magically back in stock.

      That's a different listing, the $290 listing is from Amazon US, this was from Amazon AU direct.

    OP whats CCC?

  •  

    Looks like it's up for grabs again.

    Edit: sorry, won't let me add even though I can see it.

    Must have been from earlier and just got excited that I could see it.

    •  

      I see it through original link, but add to cart results in empty cart =(
      Searching 10tb just shows usual 290$

      •  

        Yeah. For a moment it was still $233 or whatever from other sellers but it didn't work when I clicked through. I probably mistook an old tab from a new one. Easy when you have thousands open like me :P.

  •  

    Crap. Been waiting for these to drop again. You say amzn.au was seller? not the typical US?
    CCC = camel camel camel?

    Still waiting for my 8tb. Fastway courier lost it.

      Lol fastway no surprise.

      Fastway lost several of my Amazon packages, couple of my HDDs as well. Luckily Amazon sent me new ones - including express shipping (using Fedex)
      I am surprised Amazon is still using them.
      Worst delivery company I know. Been to their depot too…. WOW… I believe many companies were better organized 2 centuries ago :-O

    • +2 votes

      Fastway lost my 10TB and Amazon refunded when I asked them to look into it. The drive turned up a week or so later and Amazon said I could keep the money and the drive.

      •  

        I'm lucky my local depot isn't totally awful - but stuff often gets sent to the wrong place and never makes it to the local depot so yeah.

        They're about the only mob arguably as bad as Auspost parcel contractors

    Not as cheap as this deal but just got two from Officeworks PB Amazon ($290) down to $275. Would of love to get them to PB $231. Damn ! Missed it

    •  

      Missed out on so many deals lately I just couldn't wait any longer so did the same thing at Officeworks. I rode the fake feeling of a bargain since they were priced at $448 each!

  •  

    Sonos these come with Aus plugs? Most of the comments say it comes with a US ONE?

    • +1 vote

      Can get AU adapters via support or use adapter

      Doesn't matter if you shuck them

    •  

      The Amzn au are around $290, same as office works with .aus adapter. If you email WD they will send you an au ac adapter.

      Yes this USA WD 10TB drive comes with a US wall adaptor.
      So you have two choices:-
      1. Contact WD support and they will post you an AU wall adaptor free of charge (I did this, arrived in less than 10 days);
      OR
      2. Use a AU wall adaptor from a smaller WD drive providing specs are the same. I've also done this and it works fine.

      The 10 TB adaptor specs (supplied by WD) are:-
      WD/AC adaptor Model #WB-18R12FN
      100-240V
      50-60HZ
      0.6A Max
      Output 12v 1.5A
