I am looking to populate my HL15. Any drive sales people seeing today?
I found this so far
nothing like populating the h15 with expensive external usb hard drive, lol.
Wonder what the $/TB savings are going the route of NAS’ing external drives; some pin modding might be required(?)
I haven’t seen anything to make me pull the trigger yet. Hoping for better deals on Cyber Monday.
Newegg (US) has 20Tb Exos for $270.
Just saw this on B&H for the exos
The same drives in 5-packs are cheaper here:
Hope that helps
If you have drives that are <16/TB let me know.
This is the way. Tons of great deals there!
Has anyone from Canada have experience with this vendor?
Newegg is selling Seagate Exos X20 20TB for $269.99 — https://www.newegg.com/seagate-exos-x20-st20000nm007d-20tb/p/N82E16822185011
You can only get 1 drive.
There are a lot of refurbished drives. While I have used such a drive in the 4 TB size, I would be cautious to get larger drives as refurbished or renewed.
The links I shared are listed as brand new.
Yes there are. I have bought two 18tb factory recertified Exos from them and they have worked fine. Granted there wasn’t any sales going on at the time I needed them.
These were part of an Unraid array for a media server that consisted of one I bought new and the two recertified. Both had newer firmware already installed, went through preclearing and have had periodic parity checks and smart tests with zero issues. I had seen their name pop up on other forums and gave them a go.
Yup, Serverpartdeals is solid! I’ve bought a number of their Intel NVME drives after TONS of recommendations on Reddit from folks in r/datahoarder purchasing their recertified drives.
