This thing is so cheap. SeaGate 8TB Barracuda is $187 on Amazon for reference.

Its $30 cheaper, more if you are in a state where newegg does not charge tax.

How about the quality of the drive though? WD has RED drives made for NAS. What does this one have?

This is an SMR drive. ST8000DM004-2CX188 Barracuda (smr), not PRO. If the WD is in fact using a RED drive is much better. SMR drives are good for writing once and reading lots, rewrites are slow. archive drive.

Waiting to find it from a non Ca taxing company.
Perhaps it will go for $120 during BF or Amazon day?

Thanks. I think I'll hold out for an easystore since they frequently go on sale for about $20 more than this deal.

Bought three of these in 2017 (bf/dotd) on Amazon, never cheaper than this.... but who knows, maybe you'll have more luck in 2018? Smilie
