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.
My wife thought I was crazy for buying three until showed her this...haha

I wonder why they keep dropping the price on these. It's not like they were not selling at $180...

Well. The 12TBs are out soon and they might want to get them all out before sales of 10TB?

Edit: Atleast the HGST 12TB are out soon. WD Reds i dont really know.
Another edit: Perhaps the HGST has been out for a while already..

Upgrading from my 6TB drives, so very little out of pocket fortunately.

Also exchanged a few unopened ones with Best Buy to get the 256MB cache models. Fortunately you can tell which is which by the label on the bottom.

What the label on the bottom need to say for 256 cache model?
from SD, "Check the bottom box when you get the drive - if the model # is LGBJRCK, thats the 128MB cache version, there's a newer 256MB cache version with model #MGBJRCK"

Hi.

Would it be possible for someone to pick-up some of them and forward them to Europe or maybe someone is heading to EU in next month or two? 8tb are literally half of EU prices :(

Thanks.
