Western Digital has 14TB WD Element External USB 3.0 Hard Drive (WDBWLG0140HBK-NESN) on sale for $199.99. Shipping is free.

Was trying to find a drive to put into a NAS and I found that WD still has the price that many places went OOS.

Features:
  • Compatible with Mac and PC
  • 2-Year Warranty

Worse, it cancels out even the cyber monday discounts. So the drives end up being 90% of $750 lol.

No difference. However, it may be easier to deal with B&M store, if there is an issue. Also return period is mid Jan for BB. Not sure about WD

It's been about 1-2 years since I picked up these drives.... Two questions:

1) Are they still shuck-able and able to be used in NAS (Synology)?

2) Are the controllers usable with non WD drives? I know that later controllers (8TB, 10TB) won't work with non-WD drives and you need to cut some wires (or something to make them work).... Earlier (4, 6, maybe 8 TB) didn't have that problem. How about now? Do the controller work as "USB" drives using non WD drives?

You can walk into Best Buy and buy a Best Buy exclusive Easystore, that won't get beat up in shipping via UPS, FedEX, or the USPS.

Why you disagree? I said the same… they are shuckable and able to be used in NAS.
