BH Photo Video [bhphotovideo.com] has 4TB WD Red SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS Hard Drive (WDBAVV0040HNC-WRSN) on sale for $89.99. Shipping is free.

Good for those who do not want to spend $150+ on 6TB or larger size NAS drives. CMR technology and is being renamed "WD Red Plus" to distinguish it from the current "WD Red" product, which uses SMR technology.

Similar price at Newegg [newegg.com].

This is also $5 cheaper than the previous FP deal of $94.99.

That's not the same drive. Generally SMR < CMR for the purpose you're buying this drive.

These drives are optimized for NAS use but can I throw these into an regular enclosure and use for storage? Or are there better/cheaper alternatives (blues)?

4TB drive in almost 2021? OK. And here I am practically throwing away my old 6TB drives on local listings.

Quote from blunt_eastwood :
Thanks for the detailed response. It's very helpful. I use a 256 GB SSD for Windows and a few applications, and I have a 1 TB HDD that I save games on.

I want more space to save more games and also some gameplay that I want to record to use as video, so I wanted to get another HDD for that.

Would this [newegg.com]be a good choice in your opinion give what you've said about speeds? It's 5900 RPM.

This [amazon.com] page shows the full specs.
My friend you need to use an SSD for video games, not an HDD

SSD is cheaper than HDD and provides significant faster loading times

Use HDD for storage is ok but at this point in time there is no reason to put on HDD

Yea pretty tragic they still make these.

They should be $60 at this point, as the lowest tier drive.

Not really. As far as price more or less, a 1TB SSD = 4TB HDD. Not all people are the same as far as games. Sure SSD for serious gamers, maybe even NVME in R0. Some people don't play high end games & I'm sure that guy who's using a 1TB HDD for games doesn't.

You can use these like any other drive but they will be slow. These drives are meant for nas and raid units for archiving data or used in file servers like the qnap or synology. They can achieve better io and performance in those applications when grouped with several drives.... Well actually the network speed would be the bottleneck.

The characteristics of these drives are low rotation speed, low cost per gigabyte which equates to low power consumption, heat generation and ultimately, reliability and long life. These old-style spinning hard-drives still have some usefulness. 5400-5900 rpm drives have replace 7200 rpm drives at capacities greater than 4tb probably for reliability and cost reasons.

If you want best performance in a desktop setting, go with an ssd. Ssds work great as desktop drives because read performance is better. Ssds have a finite write performance life span though so they are not best suited for heavy file writing.

I can't recommend any HDD these days except in special cases.

They're orders of magnitude slower than SSDs for random read-writes, and they break much sooner than anything than the lowest tier of SSDs.

Thanks for the explanation. I would be using these drives for mid/long-term storage like a NAS but in an regular enclosure connected via USB (don't have a NAS setup).
