So what drives could these be? I'm sure there can't be a consumer version of the 14TB and yet these aren't going to be the datacenter version for sure. Binned 14TBs?

I’ll let you know on Thursday.

I’m assuming they’ll be white labeled versions of the WD140EFFX.

I currently have:
  • 28x 3TB drives
  • 4x 8TB drives
  • 4x 10TB drives
  • 4x 12TB drives
  • 4x 14TB drives (From this thread)
I need to sell the 3TB drives, but maybe I’ll keep them around and do a on-site backup? Ugh, I have a problem, lol.

I would since 28x3=84TB and even your 4x14 purchase is only 56TB.

One of the things we've always done when we upgrade drives is to just keep the old drives as cold backup snapshots. The data is worth more than the drive in our case so it makes sense, plus we don't have a lot of drives in our storage.

Sale was Saturday only—expired today, Sunday.

Probably for the best; I'm still badblocking the 12 TB disks I got from Black Friday.

Good news is the 10TB is still on sale for $160 /yay
I'm gonna be in trouble if the 8TB go on sale for $120 again though.
