I purchased 24 drives from this company right before chia took off. The drives had 30k hours, but all passed a stress test and still running today. Looks like they have really stocked up with prices ~$10/tb.

14TB - $144 (34 available)
WD 14TB SAS3 3.5" HDD - HUH721414AL5200

12TB - $125 (26 available)
[removed - smr drive]

10tb - $95
WD/HGST 10TB SAS3 3.5" HDD HC510 - HUH721010AL5200

8TB - $64
HGST 8TB SAS3 3.5" HDD - HUH728080AL4200

6TB - $42
HGST 6TB SAS3 3.5" HDD Ultrastar 7K6000 - HUS726060AL4210

Note when you buy a hard drive new you're also paying for 2-5 years warranty in case the drive dies, with ebay if it dies you're out of luck after 30 days. Gamble accordingly.
And it also depends on the seller. A few years ago I had a 120GB SAS 3.5" drive fail at the 6 month mark. Just to see if the seller might help, I sent them a message and they sent me a replacement drive. This was back when they were $25/ea, so it wasn't as cheap as it is now. Just shows there's some good guys out there for sure.

Busted. I registered in 2020 and waited patiently, just waiting for the right opportunity to spam these hard drives in the deals section. :rolleyes:
I didn't say that. But generally in forums where a person has only one post and it's only in the FS section, it's caveat emptor.

Same or better price, ebay WD Ultrastar DC HC520 12TB 0F30141 7.2K RPM SATA III 3.5" HDD HUH721212ALN600 | eBay ST14000NM0007 14TB SEAGATE HM SMR V7 SATA III 3.5" 256MB 6Gb/s 7.2k HARD DRIVE | eBay etc, and better buyer protection...

Almost got me. These are SATA drives not SAS like the Op posted.
You need to be careful with that Seagate SMR drive as well.

I have done business with these guys before. They are near my house and I picked up the drives and avoided shipping. I have posted on this before. They are legit. I am a happy customer. The drives I got from them years ago are still working.
