I say buy the $90 red and take it out https://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/fp/281284

For those wondering, this drive appears to be a WD Red 5400 rpm. I tried google searching for the item number and it comes up with few results. Similar WD Red 4TB 5400 rpm drives go for about $130-140, which is confirmed via camelcamelcamel. Thus, I would say this is a reasonable slick deal but not necessarily something to go crazy over.

"NAS" "for Desktops" seems contradictory. I guess they didn't want people to think it could only be used for NAS.

Why so many WD slow drives?
I think you misunderstand the concept of a NAS drive

Yes, the picture tells all (assuming it's the right one). It says "Red" on it.

This is a very good price if you don't mind the tax. I got them for $120 from Frys with no tax, but those are hard to get, so I think this is a better price. Newegg sucks for buying HDs most of the time (rare exceptions) but even $120 for a 4TB drive is not a real bargain IMO.

Because a NAS might have 8-24 HDD the power draw and heat add up dramatically.
With the goal being reliability, and data storage nobody wants things to overheat plus you can pretty easily saturate a 1gb/s link with 5400rpm drives in a proper setup.

Are you sure that's possible with that drive? I'm not familiar with WD enclosures, but most external drives have proprietary connections and don't undergo the level of QC that internal drives do.

most externals do not have proprietary drives and if you read the thread you will find the subject beaten to death and concluded that it is a normal sata connector drive inside.

But if you read the thread you may have to cut a jumper on the board to disable the encryption on the drive inside

if you want to use the enclosure and be able to pull the drive if the USB controller fails yes.

My mobo is new. Got three NVMe m.2 slot. Isnt that new enough?

Well, My computer cant see the 4TB hd. I did see it in the BIOS, but not on W10.

I went to MyComputers-Manage-Disk Management and I cant see it. Did it many times.

Any ideas?

If anyone needs a surveillance drive, Newegg has the 4 TB WD40PURX drive on sale for $130. They also have the 6 and 8 TB reds on sale, but not sure if the prices are a slick deal.
