some people prefer redundant backups over capacity, which is what these are made for.

One major reason is you void the warranty.

Definitely a good deal on 2 drives. But damn, I don't know if I would trust Seagate for my NAS storage needs.

I felt the same way, but reading the material out there shows it wasn't these drives. These are made and designed for such applications. I've had mine for over a year with uptimes as long as 200 days with zero SMART errors. They run fast and quiet, very nice deal that I wish I could afford right now.

Why buy 2 seagate 4 tb drives when one red 8tb WD drive is frequently on sale for 169 at Best Buy as an external drive that can easily be removed?

Awesome deal for 8TB storage. Not so good for those who are limited in HDD bays though.

Note: it is 5900 rpm. If you are buying 4 for RAID 10 for speed and for redundancy, the speed part might not be much beneficial

I'm thinking about getting a Synology NAS. Do I need NAS hard drives or can regular hard drives work?

You can use regular hard drives but NAS drives are designed for use in a NAS and I believe they are built with the idea of being on for longer periods of time, which is reflected in the longer warranties.

I had two Hitachi drives in my Synology NAS and both worked fine until each failed about 2 or 3 years after I got them. Luckily, they failed independently so I was able to replace the drives one at a time (and not lose data), but I replaced them with WD Reds to be safe.

You definitely need NAS drives. The regular drives can't live as much as the nas versions when running continuously

I suppose but for 60% more money you'd get 100% more space buying 2 WD drives.
