This just kills me. Red PLUS... what WD really means is OG Red. These are the same as Red's have always been. They're not equivalent to Red Pro's. Heaven help us shmucks trying to buy what we intend to, with product line naming constantly changing.

agreed. Should have named the SMR Reds as Red lite or something like that lol

Also these prices seem to align with the other retailers currently and they had them cheaper on Thursday...

that's why you preclear first, 95% of the time any defects gets caught then. Plus, NAS should always have at least more than one parity drive in case it fails

Your question has been answered below. There's always risk involved in shucking; It comes down to your own cost benefit analysis. Benefit is obvious: quite a lot cheaper drives (some mentioned these drives are inferior i.e. failed some sort of tests to be sold as "internal" drive, although I don't see any diff as a general user). Cost is the risk of voiding the warranty which can be mitigated, not eliminated, by the preclear. Some may consider the risk somewhat too high, others feel acceptable, given the fail rate and especially the savings.. so really personal judgement.

Canada Computers had them on sale all weekend until midnight Monday.
2TB was $75, that was the one I was looking at but did not buy. Their prices were pretty low, now back up another $20.
