|Details:||Western Digital 8TB External/Desktop Hard Drive $130|
Western Digital Elements (WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN) 8TB External/Desktop USB3.0 Hard Drive for $140, and code 43DPC7 applies $10 off.
It shows a $7 shipping fee, but 2-day delivery is free with a ShopRunner account. ShopRunner is free for anyone with a PayPal account or with an American Express card.
This is the best price for this drive on the market. Amazon sells it for $10 more (on back-order) and other stores sell it for at least $160.
For external backup storage for files, photos, and videos, this is a highly rated drive.
If you are looking for an internal hard drive for a NAS, network storage, or file server computer, read below for a possible hot deal.
Western Digital often uses "Red" drives inside of this external drive. If you feel lucky, and follow video instructions on how to open the drive case without breaking it (also known as "shucking"), you could get a Western Digital Red 8TB NAS 5400rpm Hard Drive with 256MB Cache that would normally sell for $250 on Newegg and Amazon.
We wanted to increase our fileserver's hard drive capacity, so we did this deal 4 times last month. We followed this video, and used four Guitar Picks purchased on Amazon for $4.
We had good luck, and so did people on Reddit. However Western Digital could change their batch of drives at any time. When getting a drive:
All of ours purchased from Newegg last month had model WD80EMAZ-00WJTA0 drives inside, which is a popular helium-filled Western Digital Red 8TB with 256MB cache. It's a good drive for file storage, since performs great, runs cool, is reliable, and has TLER enabled (better for RAID and NAS setups than a regular hard drive). Here is a test result of the drive.
