These are SMR, though.

The 8TB and up are server hardware, with the server firmware disabled (so no fancy nas codes etc that noone outside of enterprise can even use).
Thanks, great info. I've been thinking of setting up a NAS for a while and I may have to do that. Any recommendations on a simple 2 drive NAS enclosure? Repped!

Sorry im an UNRAID man. So i just get any core2duo or up with 2 free bays, and it will be several times more powerful than a synology.

You could buy a 2012-2014 hp/dell/lenovo workstation for $100 and it would stll idle at 50 watts. And you would have like 32 gigs of ecc ram and 8 cores with 16 threads.

Or, you could be a simply plug it in and it works man. I had my Synology on line in 10 min. It runs less than 10% CPU and RAM most of the time. I'd rather spend my time on other projects.

I had a spare pc. I was up in 10 minutes too Smilie Boot usb, select drives, hit make array, then just make some shares.

Now if you want to fiddle around with dockers and plugins, well its a hobby.

Nice, so I'll make sure to shuck those +8TB. Are those server hardware meaning they are CMR?

No it means its got the higher grade spindle etc. The whole SMR thing with the reds can be avoided by just going segate with the ironwolfs and barracuda pros that are in the shuckers.

Honestly WD is really dropping the ball with server stuff lately, and i was a red for life guy. Every build got a 3tb red or HGST for like the last 10 years.

This isnt even a good price and pack of 4? Limit 1 per customer?
Yes, if you're in a rush it's fine. Otherwise this is the usual price but you're required to buy four.

I've moved away from buying red drives. First there's the SMR fiasco. And then when you consider you can buy externals for so much cheaper $/TB and shuck them, I'm now buying those and using drive monitoring software to monitor the health of my drives.
The SMR fiasco was absurd, but WD came around (far too late) and broke out the CMR drives as this Red Plus line. They're now properly differentiating SMR from CMR, and these explicitly listed in the documentation as being CMR drives. I still wouldn't blame anyone for being skeptical of WD.

How does it work, what about software like what synology or qnap has?

I'm a newbie to this, can I ask what monitoring software you use and is it friendly for beginners? Thanks

These have been about 90-100 each for a while.
I was buying these used for $100/ea in 2014. HDD prices are almost stagnant.
