Model: WDBCKA0080HBK-NEBB = White (non-Red) drives.

If any of you did get a WD Red drive, update this Wiki.

For more info on the 3.3v issue which can easily be overcome check out WD/HGST documentation here: https://www.hgst.com/sites/defaul...Pin-TB.pdf

---------

Good news to NAS owners, specifically Synology owners. I successfully put this drive in a Synology DS218play. The 3.3v issue is not a problem. Hurray.

Drive inside is a WHITE LABEL DRIVE WD80EZZX. The same 8TB drives found on MyBooks

Just received 2 of my 3 drives. They seem to be coming from BestBuy warehouses all across the country. There's a big "Holiday Offer" in yellow on the box, of the two that arrived the serials begin with different letters, as one starts with 7JK and the other starts with 7SH.

Upon shucking one, it is indeed a different drive (WD80EMAZ) with a white label, as opposed to the previous "WD Easystore 8TB" version (WD80EFAX).

​Here are some photos for reference, including a side-by-side with a "Red" drive from the previous deal.

I repeat, I only shucked 1 of the 2 that arrived. The Red is NOT from the second one

I thought it might be an early alert, but no, it's actually in the cart!

One minor caveat though - Only available for shipping. You're not going to run down to Best Buy tomorrow at 10 and pick one up.

Oh. :-{ Heads up! This item is limited to 1 per customer.

While I do hope it has a red drive in it I figure worst case I'll just use it for what it is. All my others have had reds so if I have to use this as an external drive so be it. Thanks.

Crap, this is the new Easystore model number. The old one with lost of history is currently at $199.

I don't know if anyone has info about what's in this one, but I may be willing to make the plunge and shuck one.
