Picked up 8 of these this past week for $180 each. Time to go back with my receipt to get my $160 back!

The newer EZAZ drives made this year have slightly different looking labels. caught me by surprise.

I mean the comparable WD red drive is only 3y so 1/2 price for 1y less of warranty? Yes please
Oh yeah, the value is there. These are much cheaper than the 10TB ironwolf series that I was looking at, and the ironwolf only has a 3yr too.

I usually get 5yr warranty drives, but finding them cheap in larger sizes is rare since demand is high.

That might be optimistic, the lowest seen on both have been 129.99 and 159.99 respectively. Especially since the 10tb only released last year ~ fingers crossed hoping though.

I could see that happening...if they have any left. :D

We've been using enterprise 2TBs for years now, buying them on the cheap at price/gb similar to this deal, but these are stupid cheap and allow us to have some single drive consolidated backups.

I think these will drop by $10 and consumer 2TB ssds will hit near $100.
