just an fyi - limit 60 per customer. HAHA! also a chance that while being WD 18 DC HC550 these may be OEM drives. There's another thread about that happening with this seller (Macsales / OWC) and the potential for warranty challenges.

The WD Reds (/Plus/Pro) got some (STH) critique lately.
Link? I'd like to read up on this.

I have one of these and while it is a grey market import from another region, WD warranty checker stated it had the full warranty and otherwise it seems owc would be backing them since mac people would tear them apart otherwise.

I bought tens of these (SAS version WUH721818AL5204) a month ago for 330 USD per piece without VAT (EU) and 5y warranty. They are now 358 USD per piece.

My estimate is that the price will grow a little bit more.
