Picked up 4 from Kanata this mornig, and they had around 8 left as of 11am. No limit on purchases (they had to check with the manager) as it's not in the BF flyer.

Edit: $129 at Amazon, which is already a good price, and $99 at Amazon US - hot deal!

Edit 2: "Hot Deal" was referencing this CC deal, since it's lower than a USD conversion of the lowest US deal.

Do the different colors still indicate better quality?
Koodo $45 - 4GB +1GB bonus (retention deal). S9 for $360-150 GC
Good toilet paper/paper towel deals

Different usage.

Blue = desktop
Black = performance
Green = low power consumption
Red = NAS

From what I've read whites are Reds that failed Quality Control for some reason ... I could be 100% wrong Google will be your friend . Whites do have an odd Power connection to be aware of

Correct except a few notes...

There is no more Green (well they have a "Green" SSD I think but that's different). Blue used to be standard 7200rpm desktop but later they stopped the Green drives and just rebranded them as Blue due to the bad rap they got. This essentially eliminated the Blue line. Realistically the Blue had little purpose at that point anyway since SSDs had started to take over. Therefore the "high performance" distinction of the Black drives didn't mean anything because though they were a little faster than the Blue, they were still molasses compared to an SSD. Therefore Green turned into Blue and Black just stayed the same. There are still two of the "old" Blue drives available I think, but probably tough to find--the 500GB and the 1TB are available in 7200rpm which was the original Blue. All the other Blues (the newer ones) are 5400rpm and simply the Green drives, by another name.

Red also has two lines, the standard Red which is 5400rpm and the Red Pro which is 7200rpm.

Finally you forgot Purple, for video surveillance (constant video recording/constant write) and Gold (aka/previously known as "Re") which are for datacentres. However I'm pretty sure they are phasing out Gold now in favour of UltraStar branding, a name they took from Hitachi after taking over their HDD business.

I'd buy the IronWolf on principle. It's 7200rpm to the 5400rpm of the WD Red. (All IronWolfs above 4TB, even non-pro, are 7200RPM.)
