I'd be careful about 3 TB as all the ones I've had failed eventually, and I think quicker than they should have. 4 TB is significantly more reliable: https://www.zdnet.com/article/how...tb-drives/

I had a 3TB that died just after it's warranty ran out. There was no warning. It started behaving badly. I started copying it's contents to another HDD. It died before I could get much off it.

From perusing the Amazon product reviews, it appears that this one is soldered which means you can't shuck it. If anyone has other information feel free to correct me Smilie

I'm looking for a good drive for cold storage. I already have a synology set up and running.

Recommended to go external SSD, or a drive that spins, like this ?
In general, if you are looking for long term storage a mechanical drive would be better than a ssd. SSDs lose data over time faster when they don't receive power. However these days certain SSDs should be fine for 5-10 years without power. So it probably won't matter much if your timeline is less than that or if you are planning to constantly backup your data.

Had my third one fail last week. 2 years old, minimal use just sitting on my desk.

I'm done with WD portables

Wouldn't $20 per TB be a regular price?

It's a decent sale price for NEW 2.5" HDD's maybe even plus $10 or $15 on top of the total.

It's a bad price for 3.5" HDD.

This is the best price for terabyte at the moment when planning to spend less than $100.
Wal-Mart had a 2tb drive for $52 this week but it was at select stores and not available near my house.

Yes. You can use it on PC directly with or without reformatting.
