Tempting at $17/TB. But I think with production and import/export resuming this summer, we will see some $15/TB HDD deals yet this year and probably this summer.

I would say if you can wait, wait!
Prices have been going down slowly toward $15/tb.

I agree with this, but like others said I think we've seen a shift to more folks working at home so computer hardware has likely been in higher demand, causing prices to remain firm.

Hmm. Can this be shucked? I remember reading that some WD hard drives use a pin or something to prevent that.

Yes. I have two of these in RAID 0 in my workstation. One needed the modification (via molex-to-SATA power adapter - high-quality, to avoid the fire risk), the other didn't. They were outwardly identical white labels.

I've wondered whether these drives end up in the externals because that pin fails QC in the factory. It would explain why the issue occurs so randomly.

When shucking one of these and using internally vs externally, how much of a speed difference are we talking here?

Because when i hear the words adapter and fire risk i say nope right away

In March, 12TB for $175 from B&H Photo. $14.58/TB
No tax if you pay with their Payboo card. Otherwise my tax would be $12.

Dang, I just last night accidently discovered that I still had an un-used 8TB drive.
