Solid Deal! These are the real 5yr warranty enterprise drives--nice! $21.39/TB for those calculating. :)

Check prices at ShuckStop
Why? They don’t list real enterprise drives or offer full five year warranties. For that matter, they don’t even list Seagate drives...

The OP listed the real deal, a drive that a professional might put into a production system if his job and reputation were on the line.

JGC this is full enterprise drive 7200rpm not de-rated 5400-5900rpm shuck I buy those too. This one you get the five year warranty. Shucks voided warranty generally. Or you have to buy square-trade to re-warranty. For drive density this is the best price I’ve seen in the 18Tb.

Darn, if only this was SAS 12Gbps....
Since most sas controllers will take sata drives and this drive is basically the sas model in sata clothing, I wouldn't hesitate (unless there's a technical reason of course).
