Pros:
Longer warranty (5 years vs 3 years).
Tuned specifically for NAS use

Cons:
Smaller than 10TB
Likely higher cost per TB than you paid for the 10TB

You don't void your warranty if you shuck them with WD at least. If you are in the market for this much space, then go get the 10tbs. In 3 years, you will be replacing all you 8tbs with 16 or more for the same price we are paying now. Remember, 3 years ago 8tbs drive just hit the consumer market now look where we are.

If you're very serious about getting the best value, you're probably better off shucking the 8tb or 10tb drives. That's why people do it.

If you don't feel comfortable voiding warranties and taping up a pin on your hard drives, these are for you.

Also if you're setting up a raid 5, for example, you might rather have a few large drives than just one - that way if one fails you can still recover your data.

Not all PSUs require the tape mod. My shucked ones didn't using a cheap Thermaltake PSU. I'd also argue anyone that can open a PC and install a HDD could do the tape mod.

Ive read that warranty is not void ok bare drives. However, if you keep the enclosures you'll be just fine just in case.

This is such a good price. Too bad I bought two pairs of the 10TB externals from the last BH sale.

I have two of these reds. Been running rock solid for 2 years. Monthly reports are spotless. They've never come down this much or I would've bought them a couple of weeks ago.

If you want 7200rpm and only 1 drive, Newegg is offering Seagate (with a promo code) for the same $139.99 each.

https://slickdeals.net/f/13153186-seagate-ironwolf-6tb-nas-hard-drive-7200rpm-140-ac-newegg?src=frontpage

I've had one of these running for over a year, and my only complaint is I wish it were bigger. I know people hate on Seagate, but (knock on wood) no issues.

For these NAS drives, what kind of NAS are you putting them in, and what software are you running on it?
