To be fair, they were red label at one point (2017?), but everyone in 2018 has gotten white labels. But people somehow think they must be still red. I assume people think that because they can write a script which re-enables tler which is a raid/Nas feature. And don't forget you have to add tape to deal with the 3.3v power disable issue for those internal drives.Sojoph wrote: ↑ Is it confirmed that it's a WD Red?
Only reason I ask is 'cause I keep hearing and reading stories about folks shucking the external, only to do some digging and feeling that it's not an actual WD Red drive (especially when comparing specs).
Some folks think it's a different WD series (maybe Purple?), or at worst, a WD Red that just barely didn't meet the QA standards to sell as internal drives, so they're tossed into shells to sell as externals.

Why would you prefer shucking? Extra waste, as I assume you're just tossing out the case, questionable warranty, questionable make/model that you will receive.
