This cannot be powered by USB, it requires AC power.

Decent price per TB at $16.67, haven't seen too many drives below $20/TB recently.

A quick google search about shucking this one says these tend to be WD Blues inside probably with white labels. So not the best for a NAS or RAID array. Keep this in mind if you want to shuck these.
I recommend these for storing videos. I haven't had any issues with these. I have multiple WD Elements with different capacities though. I only use Western Digital because I had too many failures in the past with Seagate.
No downside. Just make sure that this is not the only backup. HDD may fail at some point. Worse if ransomware locks up your files which happened to me

What makes these drives less than ideal for a RAID array? I have just started to consider an UNRAID setup and don't know what to look for.

Can anyone please tell me whether this drive is good to save movies and other large video files?
Is the reliability good enough? I read somewhere that the larger the drive the higher chances it has of failing.

This would be used as a drive with my desktop computer/laptop to stream media locally or over the network to other devices.

Also are 2.5" drives more reliable than 3.5" drive? Thanks in advance.

I'm running unraid. Get the best quality hard drives you can for your parity drive and whatever you can get for your data drives. Remember that your 1 or 2 parity drives need to be equal or higher capacity than the largest data drive.

I'm using some old stuff that was given to me by an IT friend. Mostly WD Reds, some seagates, since they are older, i opted for dual parity.

Are these "shuckable"?

Never mind it looks like it was already mentioned.
