Hard to justify 200 dollars for two 4tb reds when you can get a 10tb white label shucked from the easystore which is equivalent to a red for $160

Edit: They're sold out right now, but they often go on sale for 160 at least a few times a year.
The drives can be shucked and placed in a normal 3.5 hard drive bay. WD elements/easystore 8tb drives which are also white labels go on sale for 130 quite often as well.

Same old story. See: "why would anyone pay $1600 for MacBook Pro / Dell Precision when an Acer with a bigger hard drive and better GPU is $900."

A product can be on sale and be a good deal without being the cheapest product in its category.

4TB is in a strange place right now. Not small enough to be wiped out by cheap SSD's, and not big enough to be worth buying when 10TB is available for less.

Yes, there is the warranty issue. If you are running a small application server that needs exactly 4TB, that makes sense. But if you are running a NAS, it does not, at less than half the capacity for more cost.

In any case, it's just in a wierd size range that's about to get overtaken, either by flash or by capacity. Like sitting near the event horizon of a blackhole. It's a nice drive, but so were raptors, and where are they now?

This should be a good deal much better than previous Seagate deal at the same price and size.
To the person who marked it Thumbs Down, would you care to explain Why? I like to know.

If I had to guess, it's likely a thumbs down purely on price and not price plus mean time between failures taken into consideration.

> Mean time between failures
I thought the Reds were supposed to be pretty good on that?

Agree but for someone looking to get the warranty this is what you go with.

Same for the 8 TB easystore. Which usually go on sale every other month it seems like.

It isn't equivalent. Different warranties for one. I'm not sure if the error recover is the same between the white and the red.

I'm a big fan of the whites. But I know the increased risk I'm taking by using them.
