Get Bunnings to knock off 10%

Good on you doweyy! Stacked this with my Amex offer. You truly are doing God's work.

For those shucking, here is a great comparison between the 10TB white drives found inside these WD Externals and a proper Red Drive....

If there is a "Bargain of the Year" award, the fact that they are shipping these and it wasn't a price error must mean this one would be...

I have these in my NAS but my NAS isn’t on 24/7. These function “close” to the reds but not exactly the same. You have to make the...

Don’t know why but from other threads I’ve read it’s not been an issue for others with Synology NAS and wasn’t a problem for mine...

3v pin thing is not an issue for Synology NAS.
19/05/2019 - 19:52
It’s a basic extended test of the hard drive. Good to do to make sure you don’t have a dud.
19/05/2019 - 19:51
I’ve shucked these easily. Using in my NAS. Ones I got were helium drives. Test thoroughly before shucking though. I used WD Diagnostics...

$21.95. Takes the shine off a bit.
16/05/2019 - 18:43
They also do the Air for about $630. Next day delivery.
16/05/2019 - 12:06
They generally don't stock them in store. I ordered from the online store. Call 1300 OFFICE.
29/04/2019 - 09:24
I got Officeworks to price match which knocked another 5% off.
28/04/2019 - 09:12
We are able to select motion areas on our battery model
28/04/2019 - 08:19
Also confirmed that mine are the EZAZ models. These are the helium based drives which are considered the better ones so a good buy. Testing...

Use WD Data LifeGuard Diagnostics. Run a full test prior to shucking.
23/04/2019 - 22:00
Test them thoroughly before shucking. Full test takes about 16 hours.
23/04/2019 - 20:37
The logic is that they stay cooler so are preferred. I have two in my NAS and are going fine. No difference between how they perform and...
23/04/2019 - 18:14
They "do" in fact contain helium drives. I purchased two the last time and confirmed this using DriveDx on my Mac. They are easily...

I do a full scan using WD Diagnostics Software. Takes 16 hours on a 10TB drive. Long but worth doing.
16/04/2019 - 08:49
For those seeing the price go up to $450 odd, make sure you choose "3 New from $228". There you'll see Amazon US and the $228 price is...

I personally wouldn’t be without iCloud. Everything is backed up and I don’t even have to think about it. Depends how important the...

Good spot. Each movie works out $6 each.
17/03/2019 - 09:54
Not shucked yet but one of mine is a WD100EMAZ-00WJTA0. Previous Reddit posts have this as a 256MB Cache - Helium - Made in Thailand. I can...
14/03/2019 - 18:05
Had a charge go through overnight for mine. Should be shipping soon!
06/03/2019 - 09:54
My NAS is generally turned on for a few hours at a time though. Never 24/7. I reckon air would probably be pretty safe for that kind of...
28/02/2019 - 21:39
Is it generally thought not to put an air version into a NAS?
28/02/2019 - 20:56
Also allowing you to buy whatever quantity you want too.
27/02/2019 - 22:14
Sorry. My bad. Part way through we started talking about buying it from Amazon. Apologies.
