Cmonnnn Seagate... If WD doesn't have the balls to do 14tb at $200 again, might as well claim the spot lol

FYI: Seagate drives are the hardest to perform data recovery on

I don't think any manufacturer makes SMR over 8TB. IIRC all 10TBs are CMR.

I don't get it. How are these cheaper than a regular 10TB HDD? I'll probably get this. I have Backblaze for backup. Not too concerned if it crashes.

Those went quickly. I tried both codes and they had both expired.

Broadly speaking, there isn't so much a consensus as to why these enclosures are cheaper than their bare drive counterparts, but I've seen some pretty practical explanations that made sense to me. Some of the examples I've heard/considered myself include (but are not limited to, obviously):

1) Manufacturers can use any 10TB drive they want (i.e., lower-grade consumer drives) and nobody will be the wiser; the only way to get some idea is to check the firmware using special software most normal people wouldn't even know about--but even this can't guarantee positive identification since the mfgs are catching on and changing these identifiers.

2) Also, an enclosed/external drive is easier to market than an OEM drive--it's basically an idiotproof plug and play device (unless you have a "older" PSU, in which case shucking these requires a minor power modification in order for your motherboard to recognize them).

3) Finally, anyone who shucks the drive has instantly voided the warranty, which removes ALL responsibility on Seagate's end for what I can only assume is it nontrivial amount of product--the reduction in RMA/warranty claims is basically free money for them.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if these factors significantly increased revenue (at volume) despite manufacturers having to include the USB to SATA controller cards/power supplies in each enclosure.
