Which drives are inside of these? I need 4 good NAS drives

Edit:
These are Archive drives (not good for nas)

The WD 8TB Easystores go on sale for $120-160 every once in a while and have 256MB Cache WD Reds inside (they could be a white label red with a 3.3v disable if you're interested in shucking). If you get old stock they have 128MB cache reds. Probably one of the better 8TB deals you can get nowadays. I'd personally avoid this Seagate deal if buying for myself.

Toshiba best bang per buck if u wanf cheapest performance and great reliability - i use 3tb to 8tb desktop and nas models in most of my / my clients many nas and bays and i dont think ive replaced one yet in 4-5+ years. I have one that has a few smart errors but still running strong in a raid 10

Hgst a few bucks more but solid as well - i think a waste of an extra $20 and up per drive vs toshiba but if u prefer hgst still good pricing for the performance/reliability

The new seagates are built like tanks, dont the clueless deal watchers who google old stale forum threads more than actually utilize hard drives fool u

the newer models 'cudas, ironwolf, and skyhawk are impressively designed and solidly built and perform very well in 8tb and 10tb so far for me in nas and nvr applications

I have bought 7 of these, and 6 were archive. The other was a barracuda, so you never know you could get lucky. The archive drives have been excellent, though they are not recommended for RAID.

I have this and it has been pretty reliable so far - for cold storage As hard drives go though, YMMV

SMR (archive) drives usually have really fast read time though if you are not changing the content frequently.

Is this drive good to use as storage? Is it pretty easy to remove it from the enclosure?

"Shucking" the drive from these are pretty easy; I did that with the WD from BB for two WD Reds inside. It's just an enclosure with their own controller board inside. More than likely you'll destroy the case/enclosure in the process.

Exactly. Typing this as the Seagate 1TB in my desktop gave up the fight today and only throws I/O errors. Friends don't let friends buy Seagate.

Don't do it! I got the hub version of this and it's a POS drive. It randomly slows down and occasionally disconnects. I wish I spent the extra $ for a WD.

Seagate warranties might as well be written on toilet paper for all the good they're worth, too.
