Need 10tb deal for my NAS because 12TB would lead to unused space (due to RAID).

Really sucks that 12 is such a better deal, would love to see the 10TB come down from its $160 sale price point (that has been off and on for years).

I'm in the same boat, I have 2x 10TB in my 5 bay NAS right now because I figured I could always expand when i need it only to see that it's not so easy to find deals on 10TB as time goes on.

Drive matching is among the reasons I'm hesitant to setup a RAID NAS.

Something more along the lines of UnRAID appeals to me since you can mix and match drives, and not have to waste older drives as you expand.

EDIT: Purchased the 12TB from Amazon. Only $10 more than the 10TB after the 5% off Amazon card discount.

...now, what drive is actually inside?

You could use 12tb drives In your raid now even if it's wasted space at the moment. If you eventually replace all your drives with 12tb or larger then you could increase your raid capacity Smilie

Drive matching isn't a must.

I have some NAS that are a mix of drive brands and sizes and everything's happy

Sure, but you lose whatever capacity is over the smallest sized drive. Then there's the performance hit from having mismatched performance drives.

With UnRAID and the like, your lost capacity is limited to the largest drive, which is the parity drive.

I don't think I'll go either route, but instead just put everything on a single disk and periodically clone it with another drive I keep offsite.

If you're concerned about drive matching, look into unRAID! Its the easiest solution that allows you to mix and match drives of any size as long as the largest one is your parity drive. And you can easily add new drives to the array which is really a god send. It's what I use and I love it because I purchase one drive at a time when they go on sale and add them to it as I get them, keeps me from dropping a big chunk at once. The only downside is that it costs money itself but the amount of hassle it has saved me has made it more than worth it.

And If you're curious which drive is inside, the product code for the two I have is:
WDC_WD120EMAZ-11BLFA0

And the product code for the 12TB EasyStore's from best buy is:
WDC_WD120EMFZ-11A6JA0

From everything I've read they're basically a white label WD Red, with the same specs. As long as you get over 6TB that is, the smaller ones can sometimes be SMR drives.

If you've considered it, I highly recommend checking out unRAID. I've been using it for about 6 months and man is it a godsend. It's simplified my storage situation so much and allowed me to expand as I go which is fantastic.

Since nobody's asked:

Is this drive "shuckable"?
