If you shuck a white label disk and it doesn't work with your power supply, here's a video guide on how to fix it [youtu.be].

Note: you can cover the all of the first three pins, but it's the third pin that delivers the signal to turn it off.

Here's another guide [youtu.be] on how to shuck it in the first place.

or HGST . you can look up the model # with CrystalDisk and google it.

either way, it doesn't matter what you get except if you get a white label and are installing these on an older desktop, it could require the electrical tape on the pin trick.

people only prefer getting reds now b/c of ignorance or desire for resale. a while back though, the white label ones sometimes meant you were getting 128 cache and people wanted 256 (china reds also were coming with 128, then when it switched to thailand production once plant ramped up you got 256). almost all people buying these won't notice a difference in their use cases

personally i would prefer HGST actually. as far as resale. if i was selling these on facebook or CL with the statement they came from WD Easy Store, whoever inquires likely knows all about them.

Instructions for shucking (removing) the drives from the cases


see attached PDF

i always recommend to save the case and all components should you need to RMA it later. someone on reddit reported just mailing in the bare drive and they successfully got an RMA replacement. IMO i don't like to roll the dice. save everything and re-assemble before RMA'ing. if you are buying many of these, the outside cases can nestle in one another in alternating orientations and stacked. the inner case/bracket can only be stacked obviously. save the plugs, the screws, the sata board, and the plastic light thingy. put them in zip lock bags etc
