This is the lowest price of external 8TB I have seen yet as there's no tax for newegg in my state.

But if you're thinking to buy multiples for any kind of array, beware: this hdd uses SMR, Shingled Magnetic Recording which might not be ideal.

Can you point to a source that states that the ST4000DM005 uses SMR?
