    Still up. I went with 2x 1.6TB instead. Not crazy high performance numbers but good enough for what I will use it for.

    Got 4 x 800gb. FWIW, the site actually acknowledges a "new price".

    Awesome! I received an email advertising the sale 2 days ago. It is definitely legit. I meant to post it then, but forgot. Lol

    I don't think it's a pricing error. I almost posted this yesterday, and received a second round of end-of-the-year-sale email from them today still listing the same drives at the same prices. I've bought things from them for years.

    My subconscious brain is telling me that this is a good deal, but I cant decide what storage costs anymore.

    ~12 cents a gig for SAS is a ridiculously good deal. It would be a great deal even if it was a consumer sata drive it'd still a good deal. I'm the fact that the pricing scales up to the high-capacity drives is awesome.

    Well I'm in for a few. I think I'm just so jaded by the cost of used enterprise storage that why i dont know what storage costs anymore. I got a 1.2TB intel p3500 a week ago for 150$, I know that was a pretty good deal. NVMe and cheep price per GB. I think because of that I dont know what's good in the SAS or SATA space.

    Could it be that Micron through OWC is dumping inventory or OWC bought the remaining stock of the S630DC series? If I read the model history correctly, first announced in 2015, shipping in quantity in 2016. Micron's website really only shows SATA and NVME for enterprise products now? The enterprise product catalog does not list the S630DC and am having a tough time finding "front page" listings of SAS SSD's on the Micron website.

    For me this actually ticks a lot of boxes for customer deployment vs. purchase for home lab and buying parts of eBay whether for homelab or even customers.

    Warranty - granted only 3 year
    Reasonable PBW lifetime
    Reasonable throughput for mainline general storage and I think even VM's backed by NAS on 10Gbps. 10Gbps may become the bottleneck with medium sized R10 arrays.
    S630DC optimized for mixed read/write performance (Micron product release)
    Price as noted previously: .12 / GB

    If I hadn't overspent so much on birthdays and Christmas I don't even know how many of these I would be buying... Been kicking myself for two days. Lol

    On a side/personal note, super happy this is helping fellow STHers. Lurking on these forums allowed me to self learn and start a career in IT. IMO this is the best community on the internet.
