Actually, if you order the two separately, you will save an additional $15... because they will each qualify for $15 off, assuming the offer can be used multiple times...

Edit/ And it does, just tried it. And the other thing is that you can (Hopefully) use the e-bates link for a 10% discount... so this should add up to a pretty sweet deal altogether.
You're right...I just did it again and it worked.
If you have a vengo account or one of those 5% off coupons, it comes out to $154/drive...which is amazing

Guys, I am trying to understand something.
Back in March 2014 I bought a bunch or ST4000VN000 4TB (NAS) drives from eBay Newegg for $164.99. Back then that price was considered warm.
Two and a half years later, the same price seems to be a hot deal. How come?

Are you sure the drive you bought back in March 2014 was the NAS version? Seagate Enterprise NAS is model ST4000VN0001 and have never gone below $200 according to PCPartPicker.

The Canadian dollar has dropped in value?

I never said I bought the enterprise NAS. Normal NAS HDDs. They (5 in total) have worked 24/7 ever since.

I also thought of this, but 25% drop in our dollar vs. almost 3 years... Three years is a lifetime in tech. We already have 10TB drives. Prices should have come down more, by now.

I am mostly bummed because I am running out of slots to put 4TB drives and would like to have some bigger NAS drives that don't have such outrageous prices.

Fair enough, but as the following link shows, prices have been hovering the same over the 2 year period:

8TBs are currently running $409 at amazon with free prime shipping and at newegg with free premier or $5.99 non-premier shipping.

https://www.amazon.ca/Red-8TB-Hard-Disk ... _g147_i1_r

Not sure whether I should grab some now (going by ccc it's a decent price) or wait for the enevitable boxing day newegg discount code.
Anyone have any intel on boxing day prices? I did some digging and wasn't able to find anything. I think they hold these cards close to their chest so they can try to undercut as little as possible when the time comes.
Please excuse my son, he's artistic.

Really regretting not pulling the trigger on the WD 3TB Red for 129.99 + free shipping (?) over the holidays. Prices have only gone up since then... Hope newegg drops it back down soon. :(
