    I started a full time workload on them at about 3k hours to stop the constant load cycles.. they have not gone up for 4000 hours now since I have workload on them

    the first 3000 hours they were plex data drives and had smb attachments from my plex server and they still racked up 20000 cycles..

    SD is showing the 4TB again for $90 however need to be Best Buy elite.
    As reports are showing up that these are now coming with Blues in then, but not all. No word on a way to tell in advance.

    Do BB chain accept returns of these (bought for 1.5mo ago) and still new in box?
    I'd like to get it cheaper with current pricing!

    You can do multiple orders online (so 4 total for me). I actually cancelled my orders when I got to the store and had them put it all on one transaction. Didn't mention anything about quantity limits or give me a hard time.
