Hey guys, I almost posted this a week ago when the price was $250 but now the price is even lower!
This is an Enterprise class 6TB hard drive that hits a particular sweet spot for those that are warranty conscious.
Newegg is offering this drive for $269 plus a 15% mobile discount until 10/16. With free shipping that totals $229 each!

For those that absolutely must have a warranty, this is a fantastic deal.
$229 / 6T / 5Y = $7.63/T/year which is the lowest that I've ever seen.

The drives are available through the Newegg mobile app only.
Seagate 6TB Enterprise Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 128MB 3.5" ST6000NM0024-Newegg.com
Seagate ST6000NM0024. Shipped and sold by Newegg, not a third-party reseller.

Any thoughts or feedback on this one?

I have a few thoughts.
  • These are good drives and that price is very good.
  • They are not helium drives which the larger capacities offer.
  • Power wise these are going to be higher with 7200 rpm spin speed.
  • That higher spin speed also means we would expect higher performance and faster rebuild times.

But Patrick, these compared to the WD Datacenter 6TB we saw a while back at Amazon for the same price, would they be a better choice? These are marked as "enterprise desktop" drives.
