[Canada Computers] WD RED 8TB (WD80EFAX) - $299

If you are in need for bigger TB, it is not a bad deal to me. It seems to have bigger cache but also use more power it seems. If you own a NAS, be sure to check the hdd compatibility. Older nas like DS213+ does not support it probably of the power requirement.

Does the obsession about colour of WD drive still have merit? I understood the original logic but I am wondering if the company has since moved on to the relative flaws of the other colors

BestBuy USA has WD Easystores 8TB and 10TB that you can shuck for $140/$180 USD but more work to pickup/proxy ship/import. They are white label Red drives with shorter warranty.

I would not use any WD drive in a NAS unless it was a red.

Won't this void the warranty once you remove it from the case?

Grey area. Some people reported RMA success either putting it back into the enclosure or a few have RMA'd the bare drive (probably Red labels only).
