    Your regular reminder that the claimed 7200 RPM speed is false, shuckers typically report 5400 drives in these.

    Why can't we even buy WD RED 10TB for $180 in 3.5" yet :(
    It's insane they're $100 more for 2TB less with less electronics.

    Aren't some users reporting finding shingled drives in some of these? Honestly I think WD feels free to just put whatevs in these enclosures, whereas when it comes to the Reds they have a published spec to uphold.

    Quality? These drives have proven that while they are cheap, they aren't the same thing.

    no, nobody is reporting shingled drives in Best Buy/WD Easy store devices. The large seagate external drives are shingled.

    Got my WD120EMFZ today. Was asking if I can check the drive before leaving to make sure it is not replaced, and was kindly denied.

    "Nobody is reporting" is an interesting claim, as it seems to imply that you're familiar with every report, made by everyone, everywhere.

    Anyway, for whatever it's worth, here's what a Redditor got back when they actually asked WD. Spoiler: they declined to answer: WD response + 12TB easystores + SMR or PMR : DataHoarder

    It hurts so much to read what great deals you have over there. Here in Sweden 10TB costs 400 USD. I've paid 2400 USD instead of 1080 USD (if they cost 180) for 6 x 10 TB.. :(

    And I can't order them cheap from eBay, the shipping and import charges that eBay add makes it as expensive
