After searching previous threads about this drive, it still doesn't seem clear if all of the non-SMR drives have been sold. It sounds like a combination of SMR and non-SMR drives are being sold.

question about warranty: for those of you guys who remove the hard drive from the enclosure, do you void the warranty and absorb the loss in the event of hard drive failure? Is there a strategy to obtain warranty on the hard drives that are removed from the enclosure?

If you're thinking about shucking the drive, you'd honestly be better off spending a bit more and getting the 8TB Easystore drive from Best Buy when it's on sale for $160-180. That one has a WD Red NAS drive in it which normally costs way more. The enclosure is super easy to get opened once you see how it holds together. You could then just put the drive back in the enclosure if you have any trouble and need to rely on the warranty. I actually have like 8-10 of these enclosures around from when I was filling up NAS bays left and right.

It's good price, not a great product.

Hi, I am late and missed the deal. When will the 8tb wd external hard drives be back on sale? I see the price is currently $199 but they were $159 yesterday.

I don't know for sure when it will be up next, but it's been on sale just about every other week. You'll see it hit front page when it does.

Agreed. Of all the drives I've shucked, this one gave me the most trouble. There wasn't a way to cleanly remove the drive:

And ultimately I ended up with an SMR drive Frown

I'd set a Deal Alert for it if you really want it - I often miss deals because they sometimes take so long to hit the front page that they're OoS/expired almost the moment they finally do.

Will this work for the Xbox one as an external drive?

I was looking at getting this. What's not great about it? Do you have a better recommendation?

Is a NAS better than a hub? Why?

Is that easy store drive good for surveillance recording? If don't do you have any recommendations?
