Seems like a great price. Reviews on Amazon seems decent.

Hmmm, even after the savings... it's still $11.20/TB. And 640 (edit: 160) discs just to store each 4TB drive on optical? Never mind the time to burn and restore from 640 (edit: 160) discs. Yeah, low enough price and simplicity is why most just stick to HDs. Never mind that online backups provide more protection than just against a failed HD.

Used to love optical media, but yeah, it's clear why people have moved on, even from 25GB BD. (I even still have hundreds of blank DVD-R that I'll never touch)


EDIT: 160 discs. Did the math in my head earlier, and somehow multiplied by 4 twice.

What happened to the promise of 50GB discs. These are not in line with storage capacities of today.

I believe HD has always been cheaper per MB/GB/TB since long long ago.

Purposes are different. For instance, I would not put an ounce of faith towards achieving stuff in a non-SSD HD even for a short period of time, especially a portable one, while I can on an optical media, burn it and store it in a safe place. Of course if $/TB is all you care then HD all the way of course.

Wouldn't that be 160 discs per 4tb drive?

Yup, I looked at my post, and was about to put a correction... I did the math in my head, and apparently multiplied by 4 twice somehow. Still, 160 is still not as simple as a single HD.

No, HD actually has NEVER EVER been cheaper. Not even now. Cheapest deals on HDs have been those 3TB data center pull refurbs, which are still $14/TB in the most recent deal. Cheapest non-refurbs are the 8TB external WD Reds for $160 @ BB. That's still $20+/TB, almost twice the cost of this BD-R deal.

And I've been using DVD ever since the biggest HDs were 160GB. That's back when HD were at least $2/GB (not TB, GB). DVD-R has never been $4/disc in the time I used them. And back then, it was only 40 DVD-Rs to backup an entire 160GB drive. 15 years ago, it was clearly the cheapest method, and only 40 discs was relatively simple.

I do online backups now. I've found way too many unreadable discs in my archive of optical discs when I did a trial run last year of trying to restore all of my 40TB of burned CD-R and DVD-r from 1999-2015ish. I'm not even sure of how hopeful I am to get some of it ever restored. (Some discs are just coming up plain unreadable. Almost wonder if my current optical drives don't know what media is in them. Going to try and dig out an old burner that actually burned these discs, and see if maybe they are readable.) Even if that works... that's not a simple and easy solution to restoring. It also means that if I want to ever get that data restored... I best better do it sooner rather than later, when a drive that can read that media isn't even around anymore.

Again: online backup. So much easier to just re-download stuff.
