Newegg has 8TB Seagate Expansion USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive (STEB8000100) on sale for $160 - $16 with code BTEPESE38 = $143.99. Shipping is free.

Code is targeted based on comments of not working for some.

Previous post comments note getting Seagate BarraCuda Pro ST8000DM005 [newegg.com] but of course YMMV

Code Expires at 11:59PM PT 2/1/2018 or SOONER based on fund availability. Other drives can use same code, list here

I think the 8tb is best but the portable 5tb at $135 might be good for some looking for the largest capacity in smallest space.

I often look into threads just to see how long it takes for someone to mention that one thing that you just know comes up every time. The thRED did not disappoint.

I updated the description and title. Thanks!

I hope it works for most or at least acts as a psa. Everyone does not pay attention to these emailed % off codes because often the offering with % off is mediocre at best.

I am in for one even though my last seagate 4tb external burned me right outside warranty. I bought three of the wd 8tb drives and the third one that came today was doa. Literally no indication of the drive even clicking or spinning. After that i think its time to give seagate another shot since its a lower price and hopefully an actual good hdd vs the archive drives they used to come with (hoping in one hand and avoiding doing anything else with the other).

DOA is likely handling damage/getting bounced on the way to your house - not a good indicator of long term reliability. That being said there's no good reason that I get heartburn when I think about putting 8tb of data on a single Seagate drive - but I do.

I would agree except the other drives, shipped in the same way, don't have this issue. Outside of open box items (that are pretty much shipped from the store by employees who rarely ship anything) Best buy packages well and ships fine even if tossed around. The mfg packs their items with the idea they will be shipped around as well. These are not eggs we are talking about here.

It should not make a difference really but there are no signs of abuse on the retail packaging or shipping box. I have had externals where the retail box is beat up but they are still kicking years later. Its just a doa. If anyone is going to give seagate crap for doa and dead right outside warranty than wd should not get a pass imo.

FYI: This only has a 1 year warranty. Way to have faith your product Seagate! Wink 8GB WD at Best Buy for $160 is a better value for me. WD has 2 year warranty, so I picked that one up instead.

If that is your main concern spend the extra $20 for the 3-year extended warranty and then for $164 you get an 8 terabyte hard drive with 4 year warranty. 4$ more than the we for twice the warranty.

Warranties don't help you get your data back, just a replacement drive. Better to put the extra $$ to another drive to backup this drive up.

I had infamous Seagate ST3000DM001 3TB drives, two of them, die on me within a week recently. They were hardly 3-4 years old.

I started reading and found a class-action suit:

Never a Seagate again for me. There is a reason they are $15-20 cheaper than comparable others. I'd rather overpay now to have a better drive.

Over the past ~20 years I realized I had issues mostly with Seagates, as far as 3.5 HDDs are concerned.

Just food for thought.
