Same price at Costco. Staples ships these with zero padding in the box, so buy in store if your can. And don't use ship to store cause they'll ship it in an empty box via FedEx to the store.
I wouldn't, these are SMR or "shingled."
No true...just order a 4tb desktop hard drive and it had bubble wrap.

I like the price, but I worry about drives this large being USB-powered. Can anyone calm my fears?

Was going to get the WD drive at $100 but I stopped when it went to $110. Grabbed this for $90 instead not bad.

These drives are also 2.5" by 15mm. They don't exactly fit in a standard NAS tray. If your RAID is mostly for storage they work ok as long as the controller is patient.

Ordered this exact 5TB portable external drive a month or so back, with store pickup option. Picked up at the store, it was shipped FedEx to the store and had NOTHING protecting the retail box inside. Needless to say I returned it immediately. Maybe you'll get someone with braincells at the fulfillment warehouse who actually knows to package things right.... But hey, it's your data.

As mentioned above, they are 15mm tall monsters. I don't know of any 3TB+ 2.5" drives that aren't above 12mm. So these are both shingled and multi-platter, for those that it may concern. I use these with various Raspberry Pi projects like a simple single drive NAS, etc. I do shuck the enclosures for better ones when I can, the top of these is metal, but the bottom and 3 sides are plastic. Though finding inexpensive enclosures for 15mm drives is hard.

I have 2 of the 2TB drives and they cannot be connected at the same time. I've tried diff settings, drivers, even bought a new power supply and case...my external WD drives work great! maybe it's something else, but i will be avoiding the USB style from now on...
