Quick search on SD shows this is the lowest price for the 16TB model. With that said, the 14TB model is a better $/TB when its on sale.

Pretty decent if you don't want to wait a few months. ends up $16.25 a TB before tax. I've had a good experience with my last wd easystore 8tb, so I think I'm going to get one here. better than the $280 newegg deal for the wd 16tb elements.

Yeah, I'm not really in a hurry but I need one that is 10TB or higher and has the lowest $/TB. Do the 14TB's go sale frequently?

Since you're not in a hurry. If you wait till black Friday you can get a 18 tb for $280. That's $15.55 a TB.

On black Friday the 14 tb goes at $190. Other than that the usuall lowest price is $220-230.

This is the lowest price for an external 16tb so far. So I would say this is a good deal especially since the storage is at the high end of what's available, it's this and then the 18tb next.

People will complain about the $/tb, but if you need 16tb this would be a lot more convenient than having to hook up and power 2x 8tb drives.

Imagine having a full 16TB mechanical HDD and it fails, all data lost. These giant old school drives for dirt cheap are tempting, but if you value any of the data you need to store, either use cloud storage or a SSD.
You should never have 1 copy of anything important. You either use this as the second copy, or shuck it and put it into a RAID array to provide redundancy. Even with redundancy you still want a full second copy of important data elsewhere.

I would think most people buying these drives, at least on SD, to schuck em and throw them in a NAS and not use them as a single storage drive.

Also when the SSD fails, and it can just like anything else, you still lose your data. Cloud storage comes with its own issues of bandwidth, cost, and the potential security issue or simply company going tits up and all you stuff is gone.

Basically, what I'm saying is... Buy a NAS.

Fine as long as the price on the 12TB comes down. Need to start replacing my 8TB's soon.

I shucked 4 8TBs for my NAS a couple of years ago, and already I can theoretically double it. Jeepers. :-D
