Does anyone use these drives?
They are available in 10TB, 12TB, 14TB, 16TB, and 20TB, and all at low prices (compared to new drives).
They are “renewed”, but are sold by Amazon. So it is probably safe to buy and try, and return if there are problems.
But I do not want to waste my time, if folks have tried them and have had higher than normal bad experiences, or if the drives are loud (I do not want loud drives).
They are probably other brands, with a Water Panther label slapped on by Amazon.
Anyone using Water Panther drives?
Only a 90 day warranty, bit of a gamble.
I dont own any, but its stated under " guarantee by amazon" down the psge.
Last time I did a deep dive on youtube for this, the offbrand drives are absolutely refurbished (there are only a handful of companies still making new drives) and these were probably meant for the Indian market. Scam might be too strong of a word but the consensus was ‘avoid.’
And ‘WP’ is intentional, very similar to ‘WD.’ Run, don’t walk away.
Has anyone found a good deal on 20TB HDD outside the USA ?
It my case, I am based in the UK.
