You’ll want multiple drives if you’re planning on using raid. If one drive fails you’ll still be ok.

Depends on your goals and data usage. In general though if you're doing NAS you probably have multiple bays and so why not use that to a better potential. If you want some resilience to your system you could do a RAID 1 with two 4TBs or why not two 8TBs? In that case you'd have 4TB and 8TB respectively. If you have a second NAS you could mirror those NASs then you might want to do a RAID 0, so with two 4TBs you'd have about 8 TB, with two 8TBs you'd have about 16TBs.

Don't forget you'll want to backup important data. Build in a resilient, robust system, with some redundancy and backups though. Don't just put all your eggs in one basket and put it all on one NAS either RAID 0 or 1.

Yes. I have two older 8 TB WD Reds (CMRs -- before they switched to the Red Plus designation -- that I shucked from a WD My Book Duo), set up in RAID with an Asus Strix mobo, running flawlessly as a D drive. I use them for less intensive storage -- documents, photographs, backups from C drive programs, etc, with the C drive, an SSD, handling more intensive tasks -- applications, games, etc. Unlike the drives from this deal -- which are excellent -- my older ones are 128 MB cache and 5,400 RPM. It is a tempting upgrade, if only any Best Buy within 250 miles of me had them.

It's Best Buy. Most people probably live within 15 minutes of a Best Buy store. Just buy this. When it arrives, leave it in the box unopened. If a better deal comes along, buy that instead, and return this one to Best Buy. They'll accept the return without any hassle since it's unopened. And the factory seal being intact means they can put it right back on their store shelves so you impose minimal cost to the store as well.

That turns this problem from you saying "damn, I should've waited for a better deal", into Best Buy saying "damn, we should've offered a better sale price."
My guess would be they're trying to say "not for laptops" cause if they just list the size in inches people will still be like: "will this fit in my laptop."

What does "for desktops" mean? I've never seen that before. As opposed to what, servers? Yet it shows "NAS HDD." Well isn't a NAS essentially a server?

There was a deal at Newegg Friday to get these for $132 after using their zip pay in 4 at checkout. Limit 2 though by the time I checked out.
