I've been keeping my eyes out for a WD Purple hard drive for my Blue Iris setup. Saw this this morning:
Amazon Warehouse is offering a 20% discount on the WD 8TB Purple Drive (4.6 stars) for a net price of $173.74 + tax.
The lowest this used drive has ever been listed according to CCC is $201. New drive is $255 on Amazon. This drive is marked as Used Very Good (item will come repackaged).
The purple drive is a 5400RPM drive specialized for 24/7 surveillance.
Yes, yes, this is a used drive--but Amazon Warehouse is more reliable than most. Check the disk thoroughly upon receipt (with a utililty) and remember to use your Amex to buy it--as most other credit cards will not extend warranty for a used/warehouse item (to my understanding). At this price, it may be worth the risk...
There are only four left.
Here's how my order looked:
$217.17 Eligible for free shipping with Amazon Prime.
+ $xx.xx estimated tax
Used - Very Good
Item will come repackaged.
Item(s) Subtotal: $217.17
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Amazon Warehouse: -$43.43 20% off. Discount taken at checkout.
Total before tax: $173.74
If new, the drive normally carries a 3 year warranty. Amazon customer service wrote back to me and said the warranty for this product via warehouse would be one year.
