Western Digital Education Store - WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Drive $276.00 + Free Shipping

The WD Education Store [wdstudentstore.com] has a promo going on for the WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Drive for $276.00 with free shipping.

Not sure if this is considered a worthy deal, but I haven't seen the 8TB this low anywhere else. The tax brings the final order to about $300 for one. You will need a verified education email address that's registered with the WD store to get to the education store. And note that you need to be logged in with the edu email to see the 276 promo.

I don't believe so, as I don't see any disclaimers indicating a limit.

Decent deal, but I'm holding out hope for this to be at $250 on BF/CM

I would buy quite a few for $250, probably build a new server too.

It's not bad, but when you need 6 of these, the price jumps so high... Frown

WD student store won't let you add more than 5 of any of the NAS drives to your cart.

Tax kills the deal. The Seagate 8TB NAS drive has been 280/each at Newegg on several occasions. So this is worse once you figure you have to pay tax here. Adds up when you are getting 4-5 of these things.

i'll wait for the 8TB external seagate for $169 on BF...although, its probably not a NAS drive.

He's talking about an external drive, not internal drive

Completely different usages between these external and internal. There is a *chance* these external drives are NAS drives which you can open up and rip out.

You open the enclosure, warranty is most likely voided
Warranty itself on the external is not as long as the internal due to faster degradation of the drive due to movement, etc

If you want a guarantee, I'd get the actual internal drive with the 3yr warranty. If you don't care about the guarantee, get the external and rip out the drive
