Same price as FP deal from couple weeks ago . Good price for those who missed on the Frys promo (although works out roughly same for me because of tax and I needed multiple drives)

NAS drives are designed for constant around the clock use because they meant to be used in RAID with other drives and be accessed by many users. they are better quality than what most desktop drives are. they have much higher write tolerance, some degree of vibration tolerance and suppression. as well as high performance reading heads. additionally, they are set to only attempt error recovery for only 7 seconds, this prevents the RAID controller from thinking the drive completely died and booting it out of the RAID. WD calls that TLER

Yep, this particular one seems to have a reputation of being loud. So, depending on where the desktop will live, it could be a noisy situation.

Newegg charges me sales tax as I am in California.
Any of you in California, Indiana, New Jersey and Tennessee try this deal.

https://eshop.macsales.com/item/HGST/0S04007/
It is the same price, and sales tax is on these states.
Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, or Texas

Sorry New Jersey folks.

I tried checking out twice last night, when I get to payment page it says discount does not apply. It shows up with the discount before checkout. Only thing I can think of is that the registered email on Newegg is different than PayPal.

What kind of advice is this?

Not only is this 100% incorrect, but you should log off the internet after making a post like this and never post again.

Yes they are fine, you don't have to use these NAS drives in RAIDs.

They have longer MTBF and are usually tweaked to perform better in harsher environments.

If you have data that is important, I would recommend at least a RAID 1 with 2x NAS drives. But of course this isn't 100% a good backup solution, but better than nothing.
