I have some used 2 TB HGST drives that have been running 24/7 for about a year and a half or so, when I received them they all had over 44,000 hours each but have been running great.

So i'm looking for larger drives at least 3 Tb each and am wondering what the current "deal" is.

What's the usecase?

I'd probably just shuck a pile of 10TB EasyStores for $160/ea. No warranty, but you won't have warranty on used 2TB-4TB enterprise HGST anyway.

Had a great deal up a few weeks back with 6TB SAS3 HGST for $50 (to give you a price point)

Upgrading my Proxmox server, need at least 4 drives reasonably priced since my budget is kind of tight.

Currently running three 2td drives in ZFS Raidzero.

It's a testbox with zero important data so raid zero works fine for me.

I have a pile of 4 TB HGST SAS HDD's that are my "go to" cheap enterprise drives. I also like WD's Re/Re4/Gold series very much, and you can find these in 4 TB at great prices too.
