Yup, 8Tb red in there. There are some comprehensive videos that show how to open the case with a cut up library card. One screw to undo and nobody is the wiser.

Send me your paypal dets, you can grab me a couple while you are over there

If it's a WD Red, you should be able to enter the serial # of the drive itself for warranty purposes, and for Red's that warranty applies internationally.

(at least, it did when I checked a few months ago)

Same specs as the IronWolf 10TB, except the HGST is 30% heavier...? That is a big weight difference.

I ended up buying another IronWolf a few weeks ago because there was no ETA on the HGSTs. I don't feel so bad about it now that the prices are the same, and Seagate reliability has improved so much in recent years.

Probably because the IronWolf is a helium PMR drive allowing for thinner platters while the HGST isn't

What's a good reliable 8Tb external drive that's not a Seagate? And doesn't cost the Earth? (Hoping for under $500, but cheaper the better.)
Closing in on 6Tb worth of.. Umm. Stuff... Let's just call it science.

At the moment got a 4Tb Western Digital Elements full and starting to fill up my other 4Tb Elements drive.

I got some from the Best Buy in the US, the WD 8tb easystores, US$159 for single drive, cost me around $250 landed through a freight forwarder. They go on sale fairly often.

Same with Seagate when I bought three drives and none worked on arrival.
Would like a drive that's already in an external enclosure too.

They would use a different power plug, warranty might be void and such, right?
