Nope, thats why you need to be careful, keep the case, and be able to put it back in.

Some report helium reds inside, others say greens. Hit or miss I guess. This is only $20 below amazon price.

Waiting for something in the 170 range for 8tb, 130 for 6tb, 90 for 5tb.

5tb -110 regularly
6tb - 160 semi-regularly
8tb- 220 regularly for wd, seagate hits 200 fairly frequently

Is the warranty still valid on WD drives if you take them out of the case?

I bought some Toshiba 6TB's for $175 not that long ago, $45 more for another 2 TB? Hmmm.

Toshiba is not as good as WD. You will get Seagate cheaper than Toshiba

By my rankings, it goes like this : WD is at the top, Toshiba is better than average, and Seagate is a dumpster fire.

Edit - I will say that I do use Seagate 2.5" USB drives... because they really are Samsung.

Those Seagate numbers are nuts. HGST is a rock star next to Seagate.

According to the 2016 numbers (second link), Toshiba has almost half the failure rate as WD, but with a smaller sample size. Maybe newer, less worn out drives??

WD is still better than Seagate though

Accordingly to the Q1 2016 numbers, Seagate reliability is significantly better than that of WD
