These drives can be shucked. They will have either a WD80EFZX or WD80EMAZ. Both drives are WD Reds and have the same specs.

There are some Reds from China that appear to only have 128MB Cache vs the 256MB Thailand drives. An easy way to tell which is to look at the label on the bottom of the box it will say either "Product of Thailand or Product of China"

The 128MB and the 256MB cache drives perform the same.

To verify the drive inside without opening run CrystalDiskInfo:

These have previously always been reds as far as I know. However, recently there have been reports of people getting white label drives in these....

Does anyone know if you can return opened hard drives to Best Buy? If I buy one, check it and it is a white, can I return it to Best Buy?

Damn just paid 95 for a 4tb. This would have been a little better but oh well. Some USB drives are coming with white and green drives.

They were selling like hotcakes so they increased the price. Supply and demand.

Any Hard Drive can not be returned at Best Buy once opened. That's from my personal experience about 2 years ago.
