Ive had 5 of these in a NAS for the past 3 years running 24/7 with 0 issues. I'm amazed the price has not budged in those 3 years, though.

The 4TB HGST 5400 coolspin drives have gone as low as $90 I believe. I'm using those in a NAS for file storage and I don't even notice the slower speed since all I do is stream.

I was more concerned about a 24/7 duty cycle wearing out a desktop power saving drive. I got burned years ago on WD greens.

Dang. Just bought that Toshiba X300. I think this is more reliable and I was looking at this particular drive yesterday too. It just had to go on sale after my Toshiba purchase. But I could get another drive!!!

price was over $200 3 years ago, the best deal you could get up until maybe a year ago was $165, and the normal price at that time was $185. so the price has gone down over $60, or about 1/3rd.

Need 2 of the 4TB or 6TB for my PC as the existing 2TBs are full. Would these work for non NAS or only good for NAS? Thanks.

Work for either type of setup. I cannot recommend the 4TBs over the 6TBs enough. They're very different drives and the 4TBs have a well-proven track record. The 6TBs have noise issues and a frightening fail rate. These things are often connected (mechanical inefficiency).

I have 10 of these 4TBs and will soon have 12. No problems at all with any of them and they all run 24/7, I've had two of mine for a year and eight of them for multiple years.

Thanks a lot (repped). So I can start with 2 of them for now and when I pick up Qnap 451+ I can stick them there and add two more. That should be good for a while.

BTW - The WD 6TB Red drives are $200 at Fry's with the code.

Since it looks like you know what you're talking about, do you think prices will go down for Black Friday? If so would the price difference be even worth it?
