This matches the lowest price from two weeks ago. Hasn't been lower. Buy if you missed that one.

Edit: 8TB gets much cheaper, so wait for that if that's exactly what you need.

I rather buy it from other retail stores for better return policy. Newegg charges a $10 return fee if you decided not to keep it.

Not if it's 'defective'

That is correct. Defective is free return any place across the board. Retail stores especially do not charge $10 when you return anything back to their stores, Newegg does.

Got this from Amazon, same price a week or so back. I shucked them. I found they were air filled drives, versus the cooler helium filled ones.
I bought two WD 10TB Easy store drives almost a year ago, and they were helium filled, and run something like 10 degrees cooler..

The 14TB ones I just got (Best Buy, WD Easy Store, $190) are helium filled..

And if you decide not to shuck them, they will run hot. Even the helium filled ones run hot when i tested them in the original supplied housing.

The 8TB was $120, which works out to be $15/TB, same as this one per TB. On absolute dollar spent, yea the 8TB was cheaper.

I bought the 10TB reds yesterday for a Qnap NAS and I was wondering if I buy this one and shuck it would it work by adding it to my RAID 5 array. It's the same size drive so imagine it should work.

Yep it will work fine. Just normally stick to same size and speed. Same brand even better.

those were the Seagate Expansions though, different drives - not likely to happen again since they're excluded now from the coupon deals.

Don't use RAID 5 unless it's data you don't mind losing! In 2020, given raid rebuild times, you really want to be using RAID 6, which allows for a second drive failing - which is moderately likely during a rebuild / re-silver, when you add a replacement drive to your degraded RAID-5 array after a drive failure.
