[Newegg] WD Red 6TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - $180

This seems like a very good price for the 6TB Red HD. It's a Shell Shocker price, so just valid today. $169 + 9.99 shipping.

Damn. I'm looking for twelve 8tb drives. Hoping to get them for around $200 each like they've hit a couple times now.

$30/TB is rather expensive - some of the highest end drives are often available for $20-23/TB which is what you should shoot for in my experience.

This exact drive has been on sale for quite a bit cheaper as well during the typical annual sales.

Yeah, I shucked an 8TB Ultrastar for $180 during Christmas season, and they were on sale again last week for $150 (for 8TB). So this is pretty cold.

These are drives intended for non stop nas use. They’re different from your standard drive and I can speak from experience using NAS units for the last decade, NAS drives are infinitely higher in their reliability and you pay a minor premium for that.

My issue is I so don’t need to waste more money but man is my NAS getting a little cramped... ugh, RFD why you gotta be this way

It's a WD Red, perfectly suitable for a home NAS.

... I know? I was explaining to the other poster why they were more expensive as all they seemed to be doing was saying they’re more expensive than an equivalent drive which, yes, because these are different.

No, the enclosure drives have WD Reds. Last weeks thread for the WD Elements 8TB all had WD Reds in them. Price was $135.
