    The 8TB MyBooks have the same 3 year warranty and are going for 125 with a free flash drive on Amazon

    If this holds true for the 8tb red vs 8tb white:https://www.servethehome.com/wd-wd100emaz-easystore-10tb-external-backup-drive-review/4/

    Then for $25 dollars more you get (i) no required mods (voltage) (ii) slightly better performance (iii) cooler drivers (iv) better resale value (v) no guessing games on what drive you actually get (if you order overseas) and (v) not having to keep a bunch of enclosures to return your failed drive during warranty.

    On mobile so formatting looks weird.

    MyBooks supposedly have EZAZs which are relabelled He10s.

    You can return the bare drive for RMA.

    The $25 saved goes into the fund for upgrades after the warranty expires.

    Amazon ships free international on the MyBook vs forwarder/overpriced shipping on NewEgg.

    I ordered some for science.
