I know this isn't that recent... but TigerDirect has sold this exact same drive for $149.99 with Free Shipping.
THREAD

As such, I'm sure they'll get back to that price range again.

Definitely a pretty good price compared to what other retailers are selling 4 TB externals at right now.

Not many retailers are carrying this Seagate model... and those that are don't have any stock. There must be a production shortage on these high capacity drives.

I noticed something interesting about the model #'s as well.

The Costco Model is: STAC4000600
The TigerDirect Model is: STAC4000100

Newegg says that the TigerDirect model is now discontinued. I'm curious as to why...

This a 2x2 array or a single 4TB drive?

Costco Seagate Barracuda 4TB $180
 
At my local Costco they are selling the 4TB Seagate Backup Plus for $179.99. I bought this, pried it open and put the 4TB drive in my NAS.

For comparsion, Amazon sells the same 4TB drive for $324.

Buying the external drive from Costco saves you $144 from the bare drive price.

U might be right (check the details 1st) But as long as your card is registered it should work.
don't quote me on that.:O

Does removing void the warranty? Is this a 5400/5900 rpm drive or a 7200? If you have a model# on the drive label, that would work!

It should void the warranty, yes. Whether they'll do a warranty exchange on a unit with a broken seal is still up to them. These external drives cannot be warrantied as bare drives for any reason.

Although Costco's return policy [costco.com]might make the mfg warranty irrelevant.

I thought all those orders were cancelled or offered a 3tb drive at $120. I ordered 8 drives in 3 separate orders and they were all cancelled.

What do you have as a NAS? I have been looking into buying one.

It was a price mistake nobody got those drives.

I have a Synology DS1511+ They now have larger models for the 2012 and 2013 model year and I highly recommend them.

I was able to get this deal by connecting my AmEx card with my Facebook account.

Atachi 11-11-2012 09:12 PM

  1. The $149 4TB drives from TigerDirect never shipped
  2. This isn't a spectacular deal if you want to use the drive in a NAS
  3. Hitachi 4TB drives have been hovering around $200 [bhphotovideo.com] each [amazon.com], with no tax for some

Breaking the case usually voids the wty, most HDD mfrs track the serial #s pretty tightly due to counterfeit product and stolen shipments.

i would not trust seagate with my data, all the seagates we get in our store is crazy

In fairness, nobody should trust their data to a single location/drive.

But agree this is a big gamble to put down on a seagate drive. Some people will buy these for their server & then be denied warranty... Will keep holding out for some non-seagate deals...

does anyone knwo of any portable external harddrive deals going on.

It's Costco. According to conditions of your membership, you can return the drive at any time for any reason.

The right answer should be: I would not trust my data to any storage system whose data integrity depends on reliability of any single drive.

gtok 11-14-2012 10:18 PM

I just got 3 of these.
Pretty nice so far.

Very fast with usb 3.0 controller. moving 2.75TB of data from another usb 3.0 drive says it will take 6 hours.
NOTE: this drive has a built in dock. Seagate allows you to remove the usb3.0 connector on the dock and replace it with their firewire or thunderbolt dock instead so you can upgrade this drive to firewire or thunderbolt OR use the dock to attach another bare drive in a pinch. Thats a nice bonus.

Overall I am surprised this isn't getting more thumbs. Probably because searching for '4tb' does not bring up this thread. OP posted '4 tb' instead. Hehe.

compusascam 11-14-2012 10:24 PM

it isn't getting more thumbs because we don't have that much porn. :shake:

segate didn't help either.

How so? Are hard drives / externals not included within the 90 day return policy?

I don't see them specifically excluded from the blanket "complete satisfaction" policy. The 90 day stuff is tv's, laptops and various other electronics that are specifically mentioned. You could probably argue to just have them replace the HD a year from now- as long as you don't frequently abuse their policy, they are usually pretty good to deal with.
