Not bad at $35 per TB. $65 after CB.

Now lets hope we don't get more flooding again in Thailand, or wherever the majority of the factories are currently located...

CateyeRR 03-01-2013 10:26 PM

Why are most of the hard drive deals as of late externals? I just need bare drives.

That's why you crack the enclosure open and steal the drive. :D

I think they sold their factories recently, but yeah they've made them for some time.

Would jump on this but I HATE rebates, especially from TigerDirect.

Fell the same way about it after dealing with my last MIR for the portable 1 TB drive that was sent by certified mail and they were claiming it never got there....
TD sucks big time!

Not always. I usually check other reviews/teardowns to make sure it's not like some drives which have the USB interface solder'd directly onto the drive. Also I'm not sure about the warranty. :P

mikenmike0001 03-01-2013 11:19 PM

are these portable or do they require a power cord?

the manufactures have started aiming their sales to people who want to backup their files.

first before you do that check the health of the HDD with crystaldiskinfo.

once you break the tape seal on the enclosure that voids the warranty. typically drives inside external enclosures do not have their own warranty as people have found out by checking the serial number of the drive on the manufactures website.

TD are my favorite rebates. They are quickest I've seen. They remind me to send in stuff that I forget. They've let me submit rebates that were outside the time limit. But I've done 100+ rebates through them so maybe that makes a difference.

Possibly. I've had issues with TD. Newegg have been better for me personally.

5700 rpm :(
Avg. Seek time: 14ms while most 7200 rpm drives are <8ms.

average seek time for:
5400rpm drives is ~10ms
7200rpm drives is ~8ms
10,000rpm drives is ~4.5ms
15,000rpm drives is ~3.5ms

That part isn't true for HGST drives, at least in my experience. Every single one I've pulled out of an enclosure from them has had a normal warranty. Other manufacturers are a craps shoot

you wont be able to make a claim on the bare drive warranty though as it is tied to the enclosure warranty and the seal was broken, thus voiding the warranty.

It's always worked for me on 3.5" drives. I cannot recall ever needing a 2.5" drive removed from an enclosure.

I recently got a NAS device with support for two 3 TB drives. Since the sole I/O channel would be gigabit Ethernet, the drives didn't have to be especially fast or have SATA-III support. TD had some WD USB 2.0 externals with 3 TB drives in them for $99 after rebate. Popped open the enclosures and put them aside in case I ever have use for them, put the drives in the NAS box, let it do its thing, and a few hours later my network had a 6 TB media server.

I remember pre-Thai floods, 5400 RPM 2 TB drives were in the $60-$70 price range.

atoneapone 03-02-2013 06:49 AM

If anyone's interested, here you are reviews of all different sized Toshiba Canvio drives:
(the reviews are up and down...so not sure what to make of it...I'll probably keep waiting for a Western Digital external drive deal.)
http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-Can...B008DW96NY

but it still looks like a very nice deal for those that get a perfect drive since you get usb 3.0 capability.

katthibabu 03-02-2013 08:11 AM

Great deal. Thanks OP. In for 2.

bluemonitor 03-02-2013 08:33 AM

I mean, if they have 1.7 average rating on their own site, shouldn't you be worried?

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. The drive inside, at least in the case of HGST drives is identical to any other internal HDD out there and the warranty shows the bare drive model number. I doubt I wouldn't be able to get them to process a claim. I've never tried it though I guess,

i too have hitachi drives removed form hitachi enclosures.

hitachi knows the drives were in enclosures by the serial numbers.

if you try to make a claim on the warranty it will not work it since the drives have been removed from their enclosures, thus voiding the warranty.

also, you wont be able to provide the correct proof of purchase aka receipt showing the drive was purchased as a bare drive.

why are you having so much trouble making sense out of that.

Getting a bit defensive, are we? Calm down... deep breath... whooooo saaaaaa

I haven't RMAed any of my opened drives, granted. If you want to share your experiences and support them with some evidence, go for it. Otherwise, we're both just theorizing :)

Anyways, I don't see why the drives would show a warranty if they're associated with the external enclosures "by the serial numbers". If they show a warranty on the website - they should be honoring their warranty. Feel free to call corporate to discuss your upcoming false advertising lawsuit :) (check your state consumer protection laws first!)

the point now is that you wont be able to show proof of purchasing the drive as a bare drive.

you will find all this out when you try to exercise the bare drive warranty.

Actually the HGST warranty statement (found here [hgst.com]) clearly states:

"A valid proof of purchase may be required to prove eligibility. If you do not have a valid proof of purchase, the limited warranty period will be measured from the date of sale from HGST to the authorized distributor."

So yes, you can file a warranty claim without a proof of purchase - your purchase date will just be backdated to the original shipping date (aka the date that it shows when you check the warranty in the first place).

ACTUALLY, a date of sale for the bare drive serial number wont be on file as it was never sold to an authorized distributor as a bare drive, but the date of sale of the enclosure serial number which is different then the bare drive serial number will be. so you are screwed that way too.

you will find all this out if you ever try to file a claim.

TD are pretty good with their rebates these days, but that aside I wish everyone would put the vendor in the deal title since it makes a big difference based on tax and shipping subscriptions/pickups.
