The feature set is different. With the Easystores, you can turn off the LEDs and change the sleep timer using official software. You can't with the Elements. And I may be wrong, but the Elements *seem* slightly quieter. The newer Easystores are known for their loud THUNK noises. (I have 14TB models of both)

The features are slightly different, but the main difference is easystore is only sold at WD direct or best buy, elements are sold at other retailers.

Yes, most likely it is a white label WD120EMFZ drive similar to a helium-filled CMR WD Red +.

The one thing you never buy used are hard drives. GPUs are fine though

Hold. It's not yet time to buy apes
Ask yourself, do you really need the space right now? If not, wait it out, prices are coming back to earth.

They're going to make more. These will sit in warehouses. Prices will reset and come down. Don't FOMO.
hard drives finallly coming down iin price cause that chia crap is dying, so i'll pass on newegg and wait for someone else to get the 12 or 14TB down around 200 again.

I've been looking almost daily for a few months and this is a really good price, especially new and at a relatively large capacity. The codes stack for multiple units, too (that is, buy 2 get $100 off, for $400 before tax).

good drives, I've bought like 4 in the past 5 years (slightly cheaper prices, but they spiked last year) and they are all still running 24x7 in my media array. Easy to shuck out and put into whatever sort of enclosure you want.

price is not too bad, given that spike for prices during the first year of the pandemic. Bought one for about $160 before the prices went through the roof, but that's been a rare find even back then.

Looks like the prices are creeping down slowly. May see some better deals during Black Friday (week / month) sales, but that's not a guarantee.

If you need a larger sized drive, this may be a good investment. Solid quality, longevity and reliability of WD are evident in this drive.

don't forget to keep automatic backups off your arrays or else your NAS provider's flawed software will get you ransomwared. I luckily only lost Hawaii vacation pictures recently (thanks a QNAP), which I'll hold onto for 20 years until I have a desktop that can force crack the compression password (also when I'll probably actually care about them).
