[Memory Express] RED 10TB NAS Desktop Hard Drive, SATA III w/ 256MB Cache - $279.99

I believe that this is the lowest price it has ever been. I checked on Amazon using *************** and the lowest reported price was $306

Appreciate the post.

We now have a 6, 8, and 10TB thread. We should maybe pair them up?

I have about 60 TB across 10 drives currently, and i've been rocking a home server for over 10 years now.
I really don't get why people overpay for NAS quality drives.

I have the odd failure, sure. But I always run redundant raids, and when I pay half the price per TB I always come out ahead.
Maybe if you "really did" use these drives 24/7 that would be an issue. My drives are sleeping 22-24 hours a day.

Guess if you have the money why not, but you need to back up anyway, so what's the big deal about reliability?
$20-$25 per TB, thats my cut off.

I'm not trolling the deal, clearly some people like these, but I just don't get it.

if you're going to type all that anyway, you might as well suggest some alternative deals while you're here

No you dont need to use a NAS for this. they are just designed to handle vibrations from other drives beside.

I get it if all drives are constantly getting reads/writes, but for home users regular drives in a nas situation are usually fine.

Have 160tb, some are nas specific drives, most are not. Never needed the benefits of a nas drive, just sometimes the price made sense

Unless you want to shuck the drive, the 10TB WD RED is currently the cheapest 10TB drive I'm seeing at Memory Express. $279 for a good quality 10TB drive is a good deal no matter if it's a NAS drive or not.

I'm using one right now as an internal hard drive for storage.
