Be careful! The top negative reviewer writes that this is an SMR drive ("Shingled" something...) which is NOT suitable for an active NAS.

What I understand is that the written data affects a lot of other blocks, and the drive has to read and rewrite them again, making it sometimes horribly slow. As in so slow that the NAS thinks the drive is dead, and removes it from the pool.

This is not a problem for a lightly used desktop computer, just not suitable for NAS.

The 10TB is a CMR drive, so you have nothing to worry about here. Reds <=6tb are SMR, which should be avoided.

I am planning on building a new Home Server with unRaid.
Trying to decide If I get this deal or wait for a shackle 10tb or 12tb around $180, knowing that inside will be a White drive.

I have the same thought. I already built the server though. Unraid is awesome. I bought the 10Tb from Best Buy for $200. It's good. I can always use more data though

This (and all WD drives > 6TB) are not SMR drives, if we're to believe WD (although they weren't forthright in the first place). See https://blog.westerndigital.com/w...as-drives/

also this drive at $230 is overpriced by $30. WD bought HGST and now we're all screwed on big disk storage prices.

Agreed, January this same drive was $216. Warm deal at best.

They were just as likely to have dropped by 25%.

Ever since the floods in Thailand, supply and demand has been replaced by price fix and hope the competitor gets busted first 🙃
