Re: New Hard Drive

For what its worth I ordered one WD 4TB Red HDD for $159 from Newegg. As I said before I wanted two or three but wasn't crazy about the prices so I opted to only get one. If I see a good deal I'll probably by more.

OK,.....

Just received the new WD 4TB Red HDD from Newegg. Very fast delivery which is fairly typical of them for some items. The box was in good condition too. Unfortunately I have a small concern as to how small the box is. I'm almost afraid to open it because it doesn't look like its ideal packaging for a HDD new or even a refurbished unit being sent back to the manufacturer.

I can post pictures,...

Bare drive packaging has gotten pretty small, particularly from NewEgg. Just big enough for the drive and a layer or two of bubble wrap.

How's that WD Red working out for you? Once I sell my NAS I'm going to pick up 1 or 2 of the Reds for my new server.

Bare metal drives come in boxes I wouldn't put a breadboard in. However, I have never had any issues with them working right out of the box.
