    Dropped to $145 on B&H for a few hours a couple nights ago, but Slickdeals effect killed it fast. Then jumped up to $159.99 with backorder.

    BestBuy - WD - Easystore 10TB with 32GB Flash Drive - $180

    While on this subject, they won't power up on Norco RPC-4224. Once I started buying these newer drives like the WD80EZAZ, I deliberated on Kayton taping pin3 on every drive I bought, but I move drives around frequently and didn't have any tolerance for tape falling off and not noticing...

    FS: Enterprise HGST and Toshiba HDDs/SSDs

    Tekram? Holy hell, what fond memories. He's not kidding about the 20+ years in the industry -- I had a Tekram caching IDE controller in 1995 and thought it was best thing ever. I was happy when Tekram became U.S. distro and support for Areca since those controllers were special. Always liked...

    AMD Ryzen 7 Parts Available for Pre-Order Now!

    Yep. Gotta keep their foot on the gas. I'm torn right now between buying a 7700k this weekend and delidding in hopes of 5+Ghz for maximal singlethreaded performance, or just waiting on Ryzen reviews. I'll probably wait. Also very curious what Intel's response is going to be if Ryzen really...

    Ebay - 1u Dual E5 2660 with 64gb 150$ obo

    Lucky man. I finally got my two units today, no luck on the SSD lottery though- looks like they'd already been removed and a metal 3.5" HDD tray was just left loose inside each unit. I'll probably throw ESXi 6.5 on one of them, and figure out what to do with the other. Still need to figure...

    *SOLD* Toshiba 5TB 3.5" 7200RPM MD04ACA500 x18 (90TB)

    Ehh.. it wouldn't be my first choice because customs forms are a hassle, but if I still have these drives in a week then I might consider it. Nothing personal ;)

    *SOLD* Toshiba 5TB 3.5" 7200RPM MD04ACA500 x18 (90TB)

    Not sure how they compare to X300 as I don't have experience with those, but these are HGST internals since the fab that produced these were acquired by Toshiba in the WD buyout. I've never had a failure or even a single reallocated sector with these - granted, the quantity 50 I've owned and...

    Sorry for delay, edited original post. These were shucked from external cases so assume no warranty.

    Hitachi Ultrastar 3 TB for $70

    That's great, but doesn't excuse them tricking unsuspecting people with counterfeit SMART.

    Hitachi Ultrastar 3 TB for $70

    Problem is, their 1 year "warranty" is rolling the dice on them not suddenly packing up and disappearing in the middle of the night. They seem nervously and overly responsive to squeaky wheels and complaints, because their operation hinges on keeping the ruse going without negative-feedback...
