    I'm keeping an eye out on this too. I was holding out when it was $350 hoping it would go down further in price. I'll pull the trigger when it goes back to $350, need a couple of drives.

    Western Digital is also bringing out 18TB and 20Tb drives but they are both [Shudder] Shingled Drives.

    I see the dollar is up to $US0.65 now. So prices should improve soon.

    Just grabbed two 12TB HDD at $348.36c each

    even used zip pay to see how that worked. Let’s see if I end up paying more this way?

    Put a reminder in your phone on the interest free period end and calculate the monthly payment you need to pay yourself, as they won’t give you the optimal monthly payment automatically.

    Yeah I was going to cancel my order and order again to save $10.

    2 is the max you can order under one account. I tried to order 2 more but it won't let me.

    Still haven’t seen this hit the zip pay account. Thought it would be instant, just have to wait and see how it pans out. I would want to pay it all out by mid month so I’m hoping I can do that.
    The app seems buggy as can’t log onto my personal details even after getting a pin code?
    Mm hope it’s not going to cause issues

    I brought one 25th April: Total: AU $367.20 (this was with a 5% discount code iirc)
    I brought one today: Total: AU $367.20 (this was with the current 10% code)

    Yeah, price jacking is real. Factor it in to what/when you buy. Just like all 'specials' I suppose...

    Can I be guaranteed I'll get the drive I'm specifically after this way? In my case, I'm after this Ironwolf drive. In years gone by, I've shucked drives to fill the NAS. However nowadays, going from comments above and elsewhere, that might be hit and miss? And Hitachi never made a Coolspin drive greater than 4TB :mad::(

    Have you got an Amazon link please and I'll take a look?

    Anyways...
