Got the Camelx3 alert just now..
I have four of these in my NAS at the moment: WD80EZZX and WD80EZZX
Works out cheaper on Amazon US via AU, with Prime Membership, after you factor in the cost of delivery and tax from Amazon US.
Don't these ones have green or blue ?
$235.97 via AU
WD don't make a Blue in 8TB and Green are discontinued (reserved for SSDs only now)
These are usually Reds with a white label - I bought a few a couple of months ago
Mine are white labeled helium something something, which is helpful because helium is inert or something.
FYI the 4 of these that I've shucked are: WD80EZZX and WD80EZZX
Is the WD80EZZX the same as the WD80EZZX?
Derp I pasted the wrong one. Seem to remember the other one had a K
@yanman: So WD80EZZX & WD80EZZK?
4 of these in your NAS makes 32TB. Why you need so much space?
you the storage police?
He has a massive porn collection.
4 disks gives you 24TB after you account for parity. (even less if you want higher parity but you probably wouldn't do that with only 4 disks.)
I'm planning to fill up my 8 bay nas with 8TB drives. Will be 48TB of space in raid z2 (two drive parity)
4k media takes up a hell of a lot of space.
You lose one to parity and you get 24TB of space
Which isnt much especially if you backing up Blurays at around 50GB each that is 480 Movies
That's 22TB by the time you lose one for N-1 redundancy and then have it ready to address (about 9% loss). But that's not that much for collecting media and backups etc.
Just double checking but yay/nay for NAS with these ones?
Yay, but they've been at $230 before, and regularly come down to $260-$270 so not a rare deal.
Nay as got my 3X8TB WD elements with the same Helium filled drives for $215 each (search past deals).
Thanks OP. Grabbed one. Been meaning to consolidate my media onto one drive. Don't forget the backup too!
What drive is in them, a RED?
