Not the lowest price we have seen, but it is a pretty good deal.

Definitely a higher cost than the last few times, but sitting right at that $20/TB point

Went in to my local for 8, came out with 8 EFAX, updated community board as all but one of my serials wasn't on the list. Wink picked purposely to help expand the knowledge base. Didn't matter to me if they came EMAZ or EFAX.

Picked up 12 from two local stores. 3 were older reds, 9 whites. Color doesn't matter to me since whites work fine with my SC846 backplane. The white labels are the same drive minus the 3.3v issue. Use this tape [zackreed.me] to disable the reset pin if you have a backplane that does have 3.3 power.

Double checked and they do have TLER enabled. Lots of pure speculation going around and people too lazy to verify. Yes it has TLER just like the reds.

yup. Comparing holiday sales to post-holiday sales often won't match up.

i got mine at $150, but i no longer need it, seem like once in a while, it's for sale, so i was thinking of passing my savings (sell at cost) to fellow SDers, but i guess i will refund it since it fluctuates

Is this suitable for use with a home media server, e.g., connected to a cheap SFF PC?
