the X300 have been around for a while, should be MD04ACA500's - plenty of threads for the X300 and 5TB Canvios to search by

On the 8tb, people are probably just buying and shucking the WD ones from Best Buy while that's on sale.

I think this is exactly right. As was also stated, this was an FP deal not long ago. But I think people are just buying the externals for $50 less and gutting them.

This is a great deal if you actually need several of these drives in a professional application. I'm in the market for almost a dozen for archival storage of work files, so this is a much better deal for me than the externals.

Am very happy with the Toshiba X300 I bought when it was on sale probably a year ago at this price. It's fast, works great, no complaints.

I've also been happy with the 8TB Reds that have been on sale at Best Buy. The Toshiba's are 7200 rpm, and the WD Reds are 5400, so depending on how you are using using the drive you may or may not want to pay a little more for the Toshiba drive which will be faster.

While both the Toshiba's are good drives, and a good price, it is difficult to pay an extra $100 for an 8TB drive when you can buy and shuck the Best Buy Black Friday external deal and get a WD Red drive.

It's nice to see hard drives coming down in price again, I'm sure these bargain priced Reds is part of the reason for all these sales. I have a hard time believing the prices are going to get substantially lower any time soon, unless all of a sudden they start discounting the 10TB or figure out how to make even higher capacity drives cheaper.
