[Newegg] Seagate Exos Enterprise Capacity 3.5'' HDD 10TB (Helium) 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache Hyperscale 512e Internal Hard D

Original advertised price = $599.99
379.99 with coupon: CEMCPVPW23

I'm not a computer geek, just needed extra storage, not sure if this drive compares to other data center grade drives.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but there are sales for 10TB Western Digital external drives for $140-$160USD right now if you don't need enterprise grade (or whatever makes this drive better)

Well it depends on the drives in the externals. Some may need the Enterprise grade for whatever reason, but this is also 7200rpm and most of the time externals are 5400rpm.

Honestly I've used WD and Seagate back and forth for years. Never really had drives die on me. Although I have a number of the 3TB Seagate drives that were shown to defective and some do have stuck heads. Something that could be fixed with perhaps minimal data loss issues, but right now I haven't taken the time to open up a drive myself to see how that goes to at the very least try and get the header unstuck and transfer that data onto another drive.

Only ever had one drive die on me and I that was a Maxtor drive back in 2003.
