How's this drive (reliability, price, etc.) If I'm looking to get a hard drive but not urgently?

Quote :
If you plan to shuck, I've bought 5 of these over the last few months and all of them contained a drive with model number WD80EZAZ. The R/N was US7SAL080 which matches up with an Ultrastar He10-8 (a fantastic drive btw). However, when tested with smartmontools I can confirm TLER is NOT enabled by default, so I don't know what else is different or altered with this model number. There is very little information available online regarding this model but so far the drives seem very nice, are quiet, and perform excellently in my Synology NAS. Oh BTW, if you plug a SATA power connector that has a 3.3V wire present, the drive will not turn on... you must use an adapter cable that you would have used back in the day to convert the regular 4 pin molex to SATA power. This is well documented on many of these drives but just a heads up.
From another review.

EDIT: NOTE ABOVE REVIEW IS FOR 8TB DRIVE.

Seeking advice from storage experts here: Have been using free google photos for photos back-up. I want to use the data as memories mostly so high-res photos are not necessary. Once a year, I can download the google photos takeout download and store it on an external 1TB HDD.

Wondering if google one is a better choice, or Microsoft office 365 (I can get the discounted EPP family rate for $75 a year or so for the family subscription), or using a local harddrive with Photosync that people were mentioning in a recent thread. TIA!

And Newegg allows for checkout via PayPal, so I was able to use that and my Amex Platinum to get an extra $30 cash back on the transaction. Ended up being 2 for $169.98 - an extremely good deal. Thanks for the post!

Says sale ends today. How does this compare to the 5tb easystore at best buy that's $90 on occasion? Which one is more reliable for long term storage with occasional use to copy in/out?

Some say this is shuckable. So if the power on this fails, I can remove the hard drive and connect to a usb powered adapter?

Shoot. I just bought a WD Easystore 5TB for $99. Arriving today. Should I return and get this? Aside from additional 1TB, is My Book more / less/ as reliable?

This is a desktop drive that requires a power adapter. Its a 3.5" drive inside....the Easystore you got sounds like a 2.5" drive which only needs USB power.

The easystore is smaller in size, might be important if you are carrying this a lot.
Also the easystore does not require an a/c plug just the USB.
