Few weeks ago this wouldn't be of much interest but lately this is one of the better prices per TB. 'Shuckable' to my knowledge.

14TB was $199.99 just 2 weeks ago and 12TB was $189.99 before that.
My 4x 14TB were till in backordered.
I prefer WD myself. Seagates during the 00s were so bad that it took over a decade of back blaze reports before I'd even consider another one.

That being said, don't you think it's a bit much to just jump to calling someone a liar and a shill because they have a different experience than you, with your 2 whole data points? Just checked the 8tb model on Costco and hit has thousands of reviews with a 4.4 average. Are they all lying shills too?
I wasn't aware that line had issues.

In fact I have never had any issues with mine. I have 19 (just checked) of the "Backup Plus Hub" (mostly from Costco, all 8tb) and 12 (3x 5tb and the rest are 8tb (STDT8000100)) of the older "Backup Plus" line (had lots of holes in both sides and bottom but no hub on front) and haven't had any of them crap out on me. Granted, I don't use and abuse them, I fill them with stuff and then plug them in to access said data as needed. But a lot are, at minimum 4 years old, and are used regularly, I'm not 100% sure, but I'd have to guess my oldest ones are ~6 years old.

Yes... I have that much Data. also have a few external WD's from 8tb to 14tb.

Honestly, I have had more trouble with the WD line, as I actually lost one of the 8tb's I had (it was an older one). I did lose a 8tb internal that was seagate, but it was 4.5 years old, and I had another internal WD black 5tb that died at 5 years 1 month old.... had replaced it with a Seagate Exos that's about 2 years old now, no problems there.

I would buy it except it is seagate and rather just deal with WD based on number of failure rates at Costco on their seagate line.

By the way, yes you have to buy two in case one fails you have a 2nd backup.

Always have a backup of the backup.

If you're going to go this route, add the additional layer of not buying them in bulk at the same time, by spreading out your purchases of the drives across different retailers, you can avoid bad batches or 'mishap' shipping taking down your NAS (looking at poorly packaged amazon harddrives).
