:
Not only do WD drives have better reliability, they are simply better drives. I believe Seagate puts archive drives in their enclosures. These are drives specifically made for infrequent usage and are going to be slow and have a lower MTBF. WD's >8TB externals have the white label drives, which are some sort of rebadged red or ultrastar. Even though we don't know exactly what they are, it can be confidently stated that they are rebadged enterprise drives, in other words drives that were designed to be accessed constantly and be used in an environment where reliability is paramount.

As a hard drive snob, I wouldn't buy a Seagate product at any price. As an educated consumer, I definitely wouldn't pay Western Digital money for a significantly inferior Seagate product. The WD drives go on sale all the time. I just ordered an 8tb today directly from WD for $107 (w/ plex discount, normal price $135). It's a no brainier, do not buy the Seagate drives.
Link/process for $107 8tb WD?

You have to be a plex pass subscriber for that price. If you are:

Drive for $134.99: https://shop.westerndigital.com/p...80HBK-NESN

Plex pass 20% off (use the EU code): https://www.plex.tv/plex-pass/perks/

Brings the price down to $107. Shipping is free, but there may or may not be tax.

Q: Did you have any trouble applying your Plex discount?

I just bought Plex a few days ago. I didn't even know it included such discounts (so I thank you for that info!).

But I'm trying to buy this 10TB ext [westerndigital.com] (which should go down to $144 with the 20% Plex code), and WD.com is telling me the just-granted code is "is not valid" for this purchase.
Since you are the only one I've seen here so far with any experience buying at WD.com with a Plex code, could you guess at why that is? I didn't' see anything in the fine print to prevent this ... and it apparently worked for you.

I'm just reaching out anywhere for help now b/c I need a 10TB soon and I'd love to get this price.

Probably should wait, these prices are equivalent to WD ext.drives and WD have a better track record in reliability.

https://www.plex.tv/
Subscribe to Plex for Live TV, DVR, streaming features, etc.
As a Plex subscriber, Plex currently offers discount codes to WD.com.

Except for the fact that WD.com seems to be intentionally blocking codes for BF weekend (jerks!) so you can't get any further discounts beyond what WD is offering straight-up.


Now if someone could please direct me to info about the exact Amazon Prime card a lot of folks here seem to be getting great discounts from, I would greatly appreciate that!

And yet, somehow, I've still been able to do it. So, there's that.
​Shuckers shop for non-sucky drives where shucking is likely to be "shucksessful."
