US$ 125 buys you an 8 TB hard drive.

Buying 8 of those isn't that expensive and would allow you to store all this cp.

u/iszathi · 18 pointsr/buildapcsales

Not really, seagate compute drives are not that good, and external 8tb wd drives (easystore, elements, my book) go for 130usd pretty often, and come with white label drives inside that are a lot better.

Right now amazon has elements8tb at 140, https://www.amazon.com/Elements-Desktop-Hard-Drive-WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN/dp/B07D5V2ZXD/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?keywords=elements+8tb&qid=1556298793&s=electronics&sr=1-1-spons&psc=1

My books are $139 on amazon right now and come with a 3 year warranty.

Same but with overnight if you have prime, thanks for the correction.

    Both the 2012 Minis and the 2010 Mini are completely headless. Unfortunately, this means that accessing them via remote desktop gives you a measly 800x600 resolution. I use this handy little gadget on both of them to replicate a 1920x1080 display being connected. So, when I connect via Screen Sharing I get a nice big display.

15% cash back for the MX500 1TB (and other "select' electronics).

A much better "deal" is the WD TB Elements at $125 and 15% cash back (with CC offer already mentioned), but needing a 1TB SSD and a 8TB external (shuckable) are very different circumstances.

Stay FAR away from Seagate drives, they're notorious for high fail rates. You can find better deals on other external drives. You can get a WAY more reliable WD 8TB for five dollars more and if you purchase it via B&H you get a free 16GB flash drive.

u/jmango23 · 6 pointsr/DataHoarder

Here's a like to the 8TB because it's on sale right now: WD 8TB. If you look around you might find a 10TB. If you have some time, someone usually posts deals on these types of drives to the subreddit.

Also Best Buy has a brand that usually goes on sale. Hope that helps!

u/DistinctRutabaga · 6 pointsr/DataHoarder

Is this a genuine question? Because your link looks like an affiliate link (there's a partner code in the URL) plus https://www.amazon.com/Avolusion-HDDGear-6000GB-External-Pre-Formatted/dp/B074Q994C4 Amazon has it cheaper.

I doubt there's any decent drive in there. The same price, or less, can get you 8TB WD or Segates. Like: https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Expansion-Desktop-External-STEB8000100/dp/B01HAPGEIE for $129 & https://www.amazon.com/Elements-Desktop-Hard-Drive-WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN/dp/B07D5V2ZXD for $149 if we go by your link price.

Unless they're running HGST drives or something, which is super unlikely, it's not worth shucking.

u/TheMUGrad · 5 pointsr/DataHoarder

You can also get the same drive at the $139 price @ Amazon. $3.01 more, but you can use free prime shipping.


u/amcfarla · 5 pointsr/DataHoarder

If you have an Amazon Prime Credit Card you can get 15% credit back towards the purchase until the Nov 22nd on the hard drive. https://www.amazon.com/Elements-Desktop-Hard-Drive-WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN/dp/B07D5V2ZXD?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

$150 8TB WD Elements (I bought it like a week ago.)

u/gd2246 · 3 pointsr/DataHoarder

Yes, but I wouldn't buy them at this price. This is what they cost without a sale.

u/chairman-mao-43 · 3 pointsr/DataHoarder

This is even cheaper than the LaCie drive and does not use SMR.
WD 8TB mybook

u/ElectronicsWizardry · 3 pointsr/DataHoarder

You can use something like luks on the usb drive so thats the whole drive is encrypted, and just unlock the partiton when you want to copy the files off.

Id just get those 8tb external hdds like this one You can put a few together if you want in raid, and ecrypt them all. They should get you about 100-150mB/s average speeds, and a few of them will be even faster if running at the same time.

u/arandomerik · 3 pointsr/DataHoarder

Would it be wrong to buy from amazon for $149.99 ? Its not quite the $130 at black friday but isn't $149.99 better than $199.99 ?


u/ImaginaryCheetah · 3 pointsr/DataHoarder

shucked WD portable HD's seem to be the way to go.

https://www.amazon.com/Elements-Desktop-Hard-Drive-WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN/dp/B07D5V2ZXD/ $140.


https://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Bare-Drives-Drive/dp/B07D3MWMNZ/ $190 for raw drive.

apparently the trade off is a reduced warranty.

personally, i always go with drives labeled for function. but my experience is using CCTV drives for VMS systems. customer would shit bricks if i plopped down and started prying HD's out of externals.

u/UnremarkableMango · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Since you are likely to buy an HDD with this, I would recommend a WD Elements instead since it comes with a drive + enclosure and is the cheapest per TB.

This 8TB is the cheapest per dollar per TB


u/0000GKP · 3 pointsr/AskPhotography

WD Elements. I’ve been using these for years. My oldest one is a 1TB drive from 2010 that is still going. I currently have 6 of them and use a pair of 8 TB drives for photo storage.

u/Gohan472 · 3 pointsr/homelab

I personally like the Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB drives (for new 4TBs)

If you really want to splurge a bit, I highly recommend grabbing 4x 8TB WD Elements and "shucking" the disk out of them.
(These can be had for about $129.99/ea currently at BestBuy)

These are 8TB White (Red) Label Drives

u/jaksblaks · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

Amazon current has the 8tb elements for 150.


u/ARandomCountryGeek · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

Me too, although Amazon is selling the 8TB Elements for $149.99, which have longer warranties.

Late edit: I got the Elements mixed up with the MyBook. MyBooks have 3 yr warrnaties, the Elements have 2 years, just like the Easystores.

u/djqvoteme · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

Can't reserve in store. They're shipping via Canada Post. Now all that's left is to play the waiting game...the long, long waiting game.

Edit: Looks like Amazon.ca is matching the deal too

u/Jr712 · 2 pointsr/PleX

Instead of buying the overpriced red drives for $230 each you could shuck 8TB WD Elements external drives for $140 each. The hard drives inside are thought to be re-labeled Reds. That will save you $900.

u/AllMyName · 2 pointsr/homelab

Not necessarily. As long as you can see it before your order it. And you can still order an He8, He10, or shuck an external drive that's still shipping with helium drives inside it.

I'm curious, why does it have to be a helium drive?

u/BlanchDolor · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

How recently was "just bought"? I only ask because the product you linked is for a $155 Easystore drive (Best Buy model but being sold on Amazon by 3rd party seller), while Amazon sells 8TB Elements drive for $139.99...

u/12345sixsixsix · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

If you have Amazon Prime, the WD Elements 8TB is currently $222.88 delivered, including GST, from amazon.com.au


If you don’t have Prime, I think you need to pay shipping on top of this price.

  3. HDD -- do you want to replace your 1TB with a 2+ TB? If so, yes you have to copy files over from old to new drive. However, you could just add an HDD -- either internally or plug in an external HDD.

u/D4rkSl4ve · 2 pointsr/HomeServer

May I suggest the system below (NAS v3.0) or search eBay for Dell R710 or T710 (R=rackmount, T=tower). Much more powerful and less $$. Also, look into WD EasyStore 8TB @ $140 Amazon or BestBuy; easy to shuck. Look into FreeNAS and Docker for all the apps you want/need to use (www.DockSTARTer.com). The build that follows is to give you a great idea; maybe a different case for more storage, or larger PSU as you want multiple HDDs


Core-Build (dual CPU) (no storage, no frills)

u/arnemetis · 1 pointr/PleX

Watch for the wd easystore / element drives to go on sale, as of this post the best deal is this 8tb for $125 at amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D5V2ZXD/

u/kabbage123 · 1 pointr/videography

By all means, invest in a NAS system like Synology. This is an expense that merits the cost.

I personally own one like this one filled with 8 x 4TB WD RED drives with two disk redundancy, so if two disks fail on me I should be fine.

Every three months, I back up the entire 20 TB on mulitple 8TB WD books drives like these for offline cold storage, just in case my office burns down. All links in this post are referral links.

Data is NOT something to go cheap on. It has other uses, too. I use it for a home security system, printer server, and a PLEX server as well.

EDIT: This 8tb WD EasyStore external drive is a better buy than what I originally linked above. Usually they ship with an 8tb RED NAS drive inside which is worth more than the drive themselves.

u/ctrlaltd1337 · 1 pointr/PleX

I'm fairly certain that they will not be Reds, but worth a shot I suppose. Even with $100 off, $110 isn't that great of a price though - but if you're on a budget to start it's an understandable position.

8TB Elements (Red/White) is $205 on Amazon, and 8TB MyBook (Red/White) is $210 on Amazon and Best Buy. Still cheaper $/GB, but not a very good deal right now. Some other options would be Amazon Warehouse deals (if you're feeling risky), as they have the 8TB Elements on for $183. Or if you're close to the border, bestbuy.com has the 8TB EasyStore on for $140USD (~$186CAD).

u/TahaEng · 1 pointr/PleX

10TB for $169 was a pretty decent price (the sale from a few days ago you were probably thinking of). But Amazon has 8TB for $139 on a regular basis, basically has been at that price all year. $17.50 a gigabyte, and according to reports the internal drives are largely white label and pretty good quality.


Not bad to strip out the drives and put in a home build, if you need / want that much space.

u/rabbitfarmer · 1 pointr/DataHoarder

I got this one on sale for $126 two weeks ago. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D5V2ZXD/

u/jpk17041 · 1 pointr/DataHoarder

It's unfortunate, but you just missed a massive sale; 8TB for $127 and 10TB $140, both external.

There's still this, which is one of the best regularly available price/GB. Note it has an external power brick, so it needs a spare outlet.

u/exographicskip · 1 pointr/PleX

I see the Elements HDD for $124.99. Not sure if there's any functional difference as they're both USB 3.0. Maybe the internal drive is something other than what the EasyStore uses?


u/rldreams · 1 pointr/PleX


Okay $129 but 15% off with Amazon account.

u/johnnycisgood · 1 pointr/homelab

Is this the one you pulled the drive from?


I was also thinking about buying a few to take drives out of to make a Nas to use for backups? Let me know how it goes for you

u/agcastro · 1 pointr/synology

To make a full backup before recreating the storage poool, get one of these drives, depending on your total used space.


So, instead of a double-disk redundancy of SHR2 you'll get a single one in SHR1, plus an external full backup, which is a much better approach (IMO), as long as you keep it updated regularly and, if possible, in a different physical location.

u/gurg2k1 · 1 pointr/PleX

Do they have to be 4TB? I just bought two of these bad boys for $300 and shucked them. The 4TB drives in your OP are $48 + $15+ shipping meaning you'd only be paying around $15 more for brand new WD drives with the capacity (and price) of two of those used drives. I would also suggest waiting for black friday and checking out if there are better deals available.

$10 cheaper but you'll need to rip the drive out of the case. It's sort of a fan favorite over on /r/datahoarder and /r/homelab since they go on sale regularly and are reliable. Be warned, you may need to slap a tiny piece of tape over a single pin depending on what kind of drive you get.
