shipped and sold by Amazon. Much cheaper than usual and only $5 more expensive than the cheapest it's been in recent memory

I hate tax as much as the next guy, but I'm getting kind of annoyed with all the comments on every deal about how tax kills the deal.....you should be paying tax on any purchase, unless of course you live in the few places without sales tax, so it shouldn't be a factor in the "deal". It's only a matter of time before the government steps in and requires it on online sales everywhere anyway, may as well get used to it. Just my humble opinion.

5400rpm is definitely better for NAS due to lower heat. This drive can read/write faster than a gigabit network will allow anyway. You will have zero issues playing video, that's what most people are using them for.

yes but you'll need to tape the insides together. I just use glue though

$50 more for an extra year of warranty (3 year vs 2 year). I just don't think it's worth it.

It's an internal hard drive. No shucking required.

Pretty sure it's a joke. As these are(were now) the drives inside the easystore enclosures everyone was always shucking

The whites that are in them run the same firmware as the reds, or at least mine does. No one really knows outside of WD but it seems the whites are reds with the 3.3 volt pin.

price looks good.
don't have to shuck the drive and don't have to worry about void the warranty.

I don't think it's a joke. To my knowledge the whites are called that from of the generic white label placed on them because they are inside an enclosure. They aren't branded as a drive specific to a task like WD's other drives. Red for NAS, purple for surveillance, black for performance, etc.

Or I'm wrong and don't get the joke either.

Note that this model is the 5400rpm version. Get the Red Pro for 7200rpm.
