The code I had to use to get the $109.99 price on the internal drive was ESCELEJ23.

Thanks for the heads up on this deal. I needed an inexpensive internal, that won't get used very much, so this fit the bill.

Thinking about getting the internal for my qnap. I would like to get another 4TB red but damn them for being so expensive. Right now I got a 4tb (red) and 2tb (WD Blue) so total 2tb capacity. Was thinking I will wait till 6TB become the price of 4TB.

If you don't need a drive today or in 2016, then that's fine, but I think that you'll probably be waiting for a good while.

This is a question I haven't really been able to find the answer to yet but why are internal 3.5" drives always more expensive than their external counterparts which would have the additional cost of enclosure, USB chip, power adapter etc? Am I missing some quality difference and/or anything else?

Internal drives are more expensive because included in the price is the cost of the 3-5 year warranty. Same drives put into externals are usually only covered by a 1 year warranty. That additional cost is nothing but warranty. Thats why when looking at used drives or remanufactured I always factor in the warranty period left to know if its really worth it.

I really dont know. Just pop them out, set them up according to Google, and you have a cheaper drive!

Wrong code and wrong price in OP title for internal. $109.99 not $99.99 AC (ESCELEJ23). Sucked in for nothing. Thanks anyway,

Seeing as, generally, the most valuable thing on a HDD is the data, and warranties don't cover any sort of data recovery, have you really gotten much value out of the additional few years?

Yes tons, fast replacements, free upgrades. Data should always be backed up to multiple locations/devices. So there is a never a complete data loss, a lot of people dont understand that concept.

One other thing I wanted to add, why spend $200 on a HD with a 3 year warranty when you can spend a little bit more and get 5 year. That extra two years might mean another savings of $200 cause you might have to buy another one, and it can also mean a free upgrade to a higher capacity drive.

with all the consolidation of HDD mfg they have as much clout as the greedy dram chip makers, perhaps more.. don't expect much less than collusion on prices for a long while
