Re: Hard Drive Deals

said by creed3020:

That NewEgg shell shocker for the WD RED 3TB is quite good. That is $10 less than NCIX's sale price but I continue to wait for actual Black Friday deals. I'm hoping for some deeper cuts into these inflated HDD prices. Pre-flood pricing can't come back soon enough as my HTPC and NAS both need an upgrade.

Sucks though that its 3 drive limit, if you want to build a larger NAS.

Yeah I noticed that limit after I put 4 in my shopping cart and then went WTF!

My friend is ready to pull the trigger on a Synology 4-bay and we wanted to load it up with 4 of these for a 9TB RAID5 array. It was going to serve a media/application hub for his new house, as well as remote backups for a few other locations.

The waiting game continues...

+1 btw for a 4TB drive. The 4TB WD RE is just too expensive and I really like the RE drives. I currently only use RE drives in my NAS but the need for greater capacity is outgrowing the need for performance/absolute reliability.
