You cant due to hardware encryption. Here is a list of "unsuckable" WD externals.

Here's a list of the current WD External drives that feature Hard Ware Encryption which cannot be turned off and it is on by default:
WD My Book
WD My Book Duo
WD My Passport Ultra (all versions)
WD My Book for Mac
WD My Book Studio
WD My Passport for Mac
WD My Passport Studio
WD My Passport Air
Here's a list of the drives that do not have hardware encryption on them:
WD Elements Desktop
WD Elements Portable
WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo
WD My Book Pro
WD My Passport Pro
WD My Passport Wireless
Swapping drives between enclosures shouldn't work as the encryption is different on each drive."

BH jumped right on this and matched. They had dropped the price on this a couple days ago too but that was only for a day. It's back down to $80; no tax except NY/NJ. Again, they say they're waiting for more inventory, but I don't recall ever having to wait as long as they estimate it will take when ordering out of stock items. The inventory turnover at that operation must be astonishing.

What's the different between the "desktop" and "portable" versions? Just the size?

Is there any reason to choose the desktop hard drives over the portable ones aside from their cheaper prices?

If you don't require the portability, it's a good way to save money. These desktop ones are somewhat larger and require and AC power source.

You can't pull the HDD out of these anymore can you? Could use a cheap 4tb drive but I don't need an external one.

B&H also doesn't charge tax outside NY, so another ~$7 saved.
