As I am in the process of building my NAS with more drives, I caved in to eBay's offer of a $50 gift card to subscribe to eBay Plus.
Now with this subscription, I returned to the same seller of my previous posting, who has another deal that only costs more because of the shipping charges.
With eBay Plus' free shipping, the price drops below the $400 threshold.

      I think you'll find that is the US ($263) price, AUD seemed to be $458?

          … aah, a seniors moment… don't worry about it… we all have them ;) … and just to make things worse the link was for an older model and they had a link (https://smile.amazon.com/Seagate-IronWolf-10TB-Internal-Driv...)to the replacement newer model and it was CHEAPER (USD249.99)

          Good luck with your NAS. Both these drives and the WD RED's are a perfect choice for using in a server that will operate 24/7. Suggestion. If you can afford it, and depending upon your RAID configuration (or not), carry at least one spare drive for redundancy in case of an eventual drive failure. I have 3 NAS servers and each have a spare HDD. None have failed yet and the oldest is 2012, yet I know one day one will fail eventually.

          Cheers and beers,

            @et tu brute: That link has gone now. Someone here bought it:)

            @et tu brute: Do you regularly check and see if your spare hd is still running? How's your nas set up?

            Edit— what's the beat $/GB drive for a nas now? Haven't done any research yet.. just lost my media disk so need to start looking

              @nerd1: It depends on your usage case. If you're a data hoarder and snack on terabytes for tea with DVD rips or reels of video footage, you'd want to push higher up the range before the price/TB graph line turns exponential. Right now, this is between the 8-10TB range. If you only want to set up your NAS as a storage device for photos or device backups, the cheaper 3-6TB range makes more financial sense and will be more than sufficient.

              @nerd1: Re: checking on the condition of your spare, if your NAS supports RAID6 you can stripe the spare through rather than have it sitting idle (either as a hot spare in the box or cold spare in the drawer).

              Better read/worse write, same as R5 but twice the parity etc

            @et tu brute: Thanks, back in the day, I have this routine practice of replacing my consumer desktop HDDs after a few years with new ones, not because they're faulty, but just to get a shiny new larger HDD upgrade and end up with the old drive as a backup drive.
            Now with NAS and RAID technology being accessible to consumers with the drive prices falling, a NAS makes more financial sense. And thus I invested in a 4 bay 918+

            Even so, my practice/habit of purchasing and replacing HDDs progressively remain. Staggering my HDD purchases over time also reduces the financial burden of buying so many drives at once and reduces the risk of getting multiple drives from a "bad batch".
            I'll certainly be back posting more deals I find on IronWolf drives as I continue to fill the remaining 2 bays in my NAS and in the future start to replace the older ones.
