price update: $499.00-$29.34 coupon = $469.66

Worth it for the 2x8TB Red drives ($230 each). 2 year warranty vs 3 year (if bought as singles). Do NOT use the enclosure for RAID - if hardware fails, data unrecoverable even with another WD enclosure.

Singles currently on sale for $199 each: https://slickdeals.net/f/10315576-wd-easystore-8tb-199

Details:
2-Bay, 16TB Personal Cloud Storage includes 2 x 8TB HDD
User-selectable RAID 0/1 or JBOD lets you configure your drive for more speed (default setting: RAID 0), data protection (drive mirroring: RAID 1) or operate as two independent drives (JBOD)
High-capacity external storage and backup. Ultra-fast, optimized data transfer speeds. Protecting your data with multiple backup options
Complete backup solutions to secure your data from loss - Integrated backup software, Cloud backup with Dropbox, System-level backup

LOL so that doesn't make sense but a 2x8 enclosure for it's internal drives for $469 does? Whatever

Edited to add, when they first went on sale you also got a $10 BB gift card

According to some, since they were $179 once they'll never sell another one. Someone should call Best Buy's CEO and let him know....

It's all over the place, do your own research. For me, I have 6 of them sitting next to me and another 6 coming today. That's my source.

$200 is still very slick, cheapest price around.
