Thanks for posting this. This enabled me to have Best Buy price match, which allowed me to use the rewards cash I had accumulated. Got the drive for $65. Thanks, OP!

The new crypto is called Chia [chia.net]. It's not fully released yet, they are in their early farming phase. I believe they open to transactions on May 3rd (a few days).

Time will tell if it catches on, but this drive has a low TBW (360 TBW I believe for this one) and wouldn't be ideal for Chia unless you wanted to be buying drives somewhat often. Right now, it seems most are buying used enterprise drives with very large TBW's.

Again, only time will tell how much Chia affects the consumer market, but so far it hasn't had much effect in the USA (if any at all). That effect could be different in other areas.

What's happening, the price drops the more word gets out about the FW bug? Meanwhile the price of the WD one goes up!

Chia is hammering the large SATA drive market right now. These are the drives you need to store your plots on for the long haul.
