Great deal for that size. Cheaper than the external WB 8TB drive deals of the past two months.

$20.74/TB. I'll pass, thanks.
If you read the article you linked, you would see:


"WD Red capacities 2TB-6TB currently employ device-managed shingled magnetic recording (DMSMR) to maximize areal density and capacity. WD Red 8-14TB drives use conventional magnetic recording (CMR)."
I think its just the people that are in the market for NAS drives need more than 2 for redundancy

Great deal, but I'm tired if the fact that every time Newegg has a WD Red deal, it's limit 2. I would guess that many people interested in these would want four or more, especially in this capacity.

Some people just deal with giant file sizes. RAW 8K footage is roughly a terabyte per hour. Raw 4K at a 12:1 compression ratio is still going to be about 3-4 hours per terabyte. Shooting anything episodic like a weekly podcast, church service etc. that you plan to edit in high quality will chew through data like you wouldn't believe.

Yup, I just picked up two external 14tb WD drives to shuck and those were around $16.50/TB (before tax). Even then, a patient person can find them for under $16/TB.

Careful: This is an EFAX model number, which means it's SMR, not CMR. Read more here: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2...-channels/

Yep. I would need 4. Would be nice to see the 7200rpm ones on sale.

These are NAS-level drives and not meant for normal internal/external backups you'd use with your desktop (such as the 14TB Elements or My Book drives). I have a QNAP TS-453Be that I've been looking for a 4th WD80EFAX to add in and this price is around the historical sale price for a WD Red 8TB...repped and bought

Is there a big difference 5400 vs 7200 when used in a 4 bay nas?
