Ordered all the drives…
Now I can’t eat…

Eat the drives.

Mazzy pinged me the deal… I can’t eat either now

Just a minor heads up - the 4TB portable is not shuckable. WD solders on a USB connector on to those 2.5" drives, so there’s no built in SATA.

Yeah, that’s unfortunate - it’s 2.5" anyway.

But it’s still a great deal, love using them for portable media servers.

so do we post here for order updates?

You should.

2 cancellations, both 16TB
2 remaining orders, 3x8TB and 3x10TB, 0 shipped

Did you get a cancellation email for the 16TB? Do you mind sharing it if so?

3 of these:

Hello, We’re writing to let you know we have canceled your order xxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx because it violates Amazon.com’s quantity limit restrictions on select promotional and popular products. Amazon.com has quantity limit restriction on select products to allow the promotional and popular products to be available to all Amazon.com customers. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact an Account Specialist by writing to qla@amazon.com We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best regards, Account Specialist Amazon.com

I just got an update saying that my shipping would be arriving sooner than originally stated. I ordered 3 of the 10 in 2 different orders.


any of the 8 or 4s cancelled so far?

To me that’s not an actual cancellation email - just a max quantity cancellation.

16GB? Are you sure you didn’t order a flash drive? :wink:
