A stack of people had theirs ship today so they are honouring it
They will be a bit more expensive than that by the time you factor in the NAS/rack/tower you also have to buy to run them so I'm curious how much extra that is going to cost you because for me 18 new drives is basically two re-purposed old PC's in full tower cases stuffed with these drives.
I’ve got a 48 drive 4RU server, along with 6x 3RU 12 drive JBOD enclosures.
Adds nicely to the 400tb I already have.
LOTS of 4k/bluray movies and TV shows?
The cameras in his truck
What's your backup strategy with all that? I've managed to buy an LTO6 tape drive cheap to backup my stuff onto tape.
Got my six 10tb WD drives, shucked them all from the usb enclosure. Did the kapton tape trick on all six, every single one worked a treat! 60 TB raw going into my new freenas! Bargain.
how much porn you got?
< 1% of what's out there
do the western digital golds all have "3.3v wire" ? or not at all ?
Amazon said my 10tb was a pricing error, got 30 dollar gift card for my 2 minutes of clicking. 5/7 would do it again
how many drives did you order to get the $30 gift card ? Alot of people actually did get their orders processed, so either they ran out of stock or automation got them delivered.
Bugger! i was bummed i missed out. I would of ordered 10 because my ZFS setup is 10 raidz2 x 2. I wonder how many gift cards they would of given me. At least some OCAUers got the drives delivered.
As a result of me missing out on 2 super good deals posted here recently I've now subscribed to this thread with email notification
Got the voucher here too
Golds are retail drives so yes they have 3.3v connections.
both my orders (6 total) on two accounts shipped and in transit, unless that's a fuckin lie. but yeah, i ordered very soon after it went up on ozbargain. there were just a few comments to the thread. wish i created a third account though.
i've done deep scans on the 4x i got from before and all clear.
Meh, both cancelled. Got 2 x $30 vouchers. bah
Mine canceled anyone use them as they are, what do you do with the us power adapter?
