    The other one listed recently, a lot of the comments said it had a US power adapter, is it the same for this one?

    • +1 vote

      Most likely. But can contact Western Digital and request an AU adapter

        For "NESN" models, these have only the North American (US/Canada) ac adapter. Upon receipt of device, register immediately as your will need the serial number. Then contact WD support with the serial number and they will ship to you free of charge, an Australia/New Zealand compatible adapter immediately.
        For "AESN" models, these ship usually with global adapters include AU/NZ. Register with WD support.
        For "EESN" models (UK and Europe) also ship with global ac adapters. Usually, an AU/NZ is also included. If not, register device and contact WD support for the appropriate adapted.

        WD Support has always been good for me. I have always received the proper ac adapters very quickly.

        Cheers

      nvm this is the us model

    •  

      Yep, received the AU adapter from WD about two weeks after emailing them.

    •  

      It came with different plugs which includes EU, US and AUS plug

  •  

    Can I connect this to a micro PC (Dell USFF) and use it like a Nas? I'll be running them off a UPS.

    Would it affect the lifetime of the risk if it is always powered l, even though it might actually be in use all the time?

      This drive will sell power off when there is no activity. The drive will still appear in Windows Explorer, and when you click on it, it will spin back up (give it a few seconds while it does so).

      •  

        I've found my 12tb elements drive pretty annoying in windows with its power management. Freezes file explorer while it starts up.

      •  

        I believe there's a tool you can get that writes a basic text file to the drive every so often to stop it going to sleep, generally hard drives are better left running rather than going through a bunch of start/stop.

    Please be aware that people are starting to use HDD for mining.
    HDD/SSD price has already increased (newly double) a lot in China. If you want to purchase new HDD/SSD, buy it now…

    •  

      What is wrong with people, mining with a HDD hahaha.

    •  

      How are they using HDD for mining?

      • +2 votes

        search for chia..
        Basically using SSD as caching for plots, and then generate some data, these data == lotto draws.
        Then use HDD to store these data. And every a few minutes several data will be selected. The one who got selected will get 1 coin..

          Interesting, thank you.

        Expect what happened to graphics cards to happen the HDD and SSDs:

      Oh great. What a pointless waste of resources the crypto market is

      • +2 votes

        bitcoin and it's derivatives are the problem - they are crap

        the new generation cryptocurrencies are incredibly efficient and don't require wasting electricity or computer resources to support them

    •  

      damn, i hope another of those 4TB for less than $100 deals come up in the next few weeks then, before this crap turns reals and prices go up too much.

        low tb hdd are useless, they take up too much space, it'll be just like 4gb or below gpus

    •  

      lol whats next, people using mice to farm clicks, and we will no longer be able to buy one?

    $243.80 for Prime through Amazon US, have to select from "available sellers". So save a little if you're shucking

  • +2 votes

    Can be had slightly cheaper from the US, but I think the extra ~$8 is worth it for AU stock.

    These will backup the important stuff on my 4 x 8TB drives, most of which has come from a collection of 2TB and 4 TB drives.

    personally, I think it is a good idea to stock one or two, with Chia coin mining, hard disk market in a few months could be similiar to the graphic card situation.

      That line of reasoning is exactly how we ended up with no toilet paper in stores last year.

      • +2 votes

        Given the state of the GPU market, this fear is very real.

  •  

    Are these still good for shucking?

    •  

      yes

  •  

    Hi, can anyone show me how to get the deal , the link above show sold by Amazon USA only, with the expected arrival date close to a month

  •  

    Already gone? Says Amazon US now.

    •  

      The title of the post says Amazon US…. Most of these external drive deals are imports.

      •  

        This one was AU until it sold out:

        Update: The original deal was sold and shipped directly by Amazon AU (not through Amazon US)

        •  

          Oh, the tile has been updated (again?). When I clicked it said 'Amazon US via Amazon AU'.

  • +1 vote

    Its available for $243. I dont know why its marked as sold /expired.

    Also someone need to update the title. Its $15 delivery if you dont have Prime.

    •  

      I'm sure you mean 243

      Not in stock, it's on back order for the next couple of days.

      •  

        its now down to $230.58 + $15.25 (I'm not sure you're including or excluding the shipping there as I saw it at 243 yesterday)

        yes its on back order but its still cheaper.

        found https://diskprices.com/?locale=au to be awesome source of scanning amazon

    The link now shows "In stock on April 22, 2021" and for only $243! so, $24.30/TB. That's a great price
    I've got three of those in my NAS that I shucked. Takes 5min/drive to shuck. The ones I have are Helium filled and very quiet, great for NAS as they run very cool.

  •  

    Can anyone confirm the likely drives to be contained within, for shucking purposes?

    And how these compare to the equivalent 10tb Seagate expansions?

  •  

    Hmm any 12tb and above ?

  •  

    I ordered this..must have been just as they ran out of Aus stock as it wouldn't take it several times til I closed and reopened the app, then it gave me same device same price but us stock. A little wait for delivery.

    Can anyone tell me, can I contact Western Digital before it arrives and ask for the adaptor before I get it or do I have to wait?

    •  

      no, you'll need the serial number to register it.

  •  

    they are $230 now

    from US though

    i just can't pull the trigger getting a hard drive thrown around from carrier to carrier from us to au
