Lazada isn't good enough? 3,350bht .........  https://www.lazada.co.th/products/wd-my-passport-5tb-red-usb-30-hdd-25-wdbpkj0050brd-wesn-internal-harddisk-harddrive-i627326845-s1198182447.htm

Seagate and Western Digital hard drives are made in Thailand   you can buy them from a shop like JIB on Lazada cash on delivery, no fakes arrives in a couple of days  no worries about  customs or gett

Like as mentioned above, Lazada has all kinds of HD. For these sorts of things it often costs more to buy them abroad when you add up shipping plus duty plus tax. The courier often will add some fees

Yes 5 Tb (oops)!
Too many fake products. I've got files I want to keep for a long time, I don't want to risk a drive failing after a few months. Once bitten, twice shy!

I swear by Lazada. A vendor tried to rip me off for a motherboard and Lazada handled it. Slowly, to be sure, but once we ascertained the vendor was trying to do me dirt, I got my refund.

Sure if one buys from some sidewalk stall. I bought mine from good stores in big malls and never had a problem. Still using them.

I do backup on multiple drives though as anything can fail. I have quite a collection of useless computers.

Why buy on line when one can just got to the mall and buy the same thing from the big tech store? Memory fails, but think it's ProBuy or something.

I too have files I want to keep and use, mostly music. But 5TB! That's a lot of media.
