I would love to replace my four 4TB ones with four of these, but I can't justify it right now.

These were $330 at newegg a month ago. Best price for amazon and it’s ok, but can be a bit better.

how long do these typically last in a NAS that is only occasionally accessed ? 5, 10 years?

I bought WD RED 10TB for $329 in December.

There's no comparison to a Seagate. WD is far better than Seagate.

As an IT pro, my experience is that WD are unequivocally better than Seagate with respect to the only metric I care about in an HDD -- reliability. I've replaced more Seagate platter drives from desktops, laptops, servers, and NASes than any other brand by a factor of at least 10. HGST are/were even better, especially historically... though they're owned by WD now, they still come in toward the top of most reliability rankings. Things have been changing of late, so it's not as cut and dried as it once was, it's true. A bit less anecdotally, check out Backblaze's HDD reliability charts; Seagates rarely have the lowest Annual Failure Rate.

Just my experience/opinion :)

I had WD Reds for the longest time in my NAS, got Ironwolves for the same price last time and they have been excellent if not noisier.

Not a huge fan of the WD Red SMR shenanigans either so would probably lean ST if I had to purchase today. That is a personal consumer choice rather than a technological one.
I have a pretty high level of hate for Seagate, from the high failure rate of certain drive models making my life difficult, but im not blinded by it that I won't admit they made a great product with the 10TB barracuda pro which u can get from shucking their 10TB external.

This current WD dilemma is forcing me to do one thing for own personal setup that i've been holding back for a while now and that's to convert everything to SSD and slowly get rid of my HDD as they die. (of course if im forced to get a Hard drive, i won't mind getting the SG 10TB if it is the best bang for buck)

Just voting with my wallet, need to punish WD for the SMR BS, and I still got grudge against SG for making my life miserable those years back.

I love this thread. But yeah not a deal compared to SGs 10tb. Will probably pick up another 2 when they go sub 200 again.

Last time I ordered a hard drive in Feb 2020, Amazon sent it in a static bag inside a bubble mailer envelope. No other protection! Hard drive worked, but not sure I’d order a hard drive from Amazon again.

i bought 2 wd red 4tb in July 2017 for $ 173 each, i think it came in a pretty small box but with the sponge packaging.

but i just saw a report on CBC news this week where amazon warehouse packer was tossing packed boxes a foot into the air on to a conveyor belt, so dunno if much better.

I would stay away from buying hard drives from Amazon. Absolutely no protection provided for shipping. Mine came a static bag and just a few air bubbles tossed into the box.
Nothing protecting it from drops.
