I can't wait for these to come in line with the sale price of the 8TB drives. This part of the market has become so stagnate.

Do these 10TB require those special enclosures or can they go into the regular enclosures?

Your NAS should tell you the max disk size

Do Deskstar's still go by the nickname "Deathstar" like they did about 10 years ago or are they more reliable?

From what I researched HGST has had the most reliable mechanical HDDs for the past decade.

Should be okay imo

edit:
Just my personal experience, but I have one 3TB in my desktop for the past 4 years and two of these 10TB in my NAS.

10 terabytes is a lot of space that I would never even come close to filling. I rather buy a much smaller hdd and store the rest on a cloud server.
I'd never want to drive a tractor trailer as a daily commute vehicle. So, I'll buy something smaller and rent a truck if I need to move. Stupid response, isn't it?

I don't understand the lack of logic to your response. What does a tractor-trailer have to with a hard drive?

I'm not OP, but given this is a NAS drive, it isn't really meant to be used as a standard drive. The people buying NAS drives are usually storing a large amount of data and data that is typically online 24/7. 10TB is not a substantial amount of data in these scenarios. I personally buy NAS drives because I host media for my family and some friends. I could definitely make use for a raid of these if I was in the market for new drives. Another example is I've installed some NAS boxes for companies that aren't really large enough that need a SAN. Depending on the type of business business they might need far more than 10TB of data, so you would raid several of these together.

I have to assume his statement was grammatically incorrect because it doesn't make much sense. However, I think he is equating someone buying a NAS drive to someone needing a large vehicle frequently. If you don't need a large vehicle, then you are better off renting one when you do?

I have been rolling with (6)Western Digital 3TB Red's in RAID 5 for the past 5 years and haven't been disappointed, happy to find something stable after all the Seagate failures I had before that.

Always happy to look at other options as long as reliability is there.
