Toshiba N300 NAS HDDs 6TB $227.46, 8TB $276.91, 10TB $354.39, 12TB $445.05, 14TB $642.85 Delivered @ Amazon US via AU
Following on from my recent Seagate/WD NAS drives deal, I noted that Amazon has a Cyber Monday special on Toshiba N300 NAS hard drives from Amazon US. Given the pricing is very competitive (even before considering opportunities for Cashrewards/Shopback and/or Zip money 10% and 5% bonus credit on Amazon giftcards), I felt compelled to share this and let the community decide if they want to go with a US-sourced Toshiba drive over local Australian stock Seagates/WDs. Note that I have included the Zip money 10% (capped at $50) since it's open to everyone, but have excluded the other aforementioned potential for more savings.
Best bang for buck is 8TB at $276.91 ($34.61 per TB) before any discounts. With 10% off from Zip, it's $31.15 per TB!

Keep in mind that Toshiba NAS drives are not as well discussed vs Seagate/WD, and this is US stock so you'll deal with Amazon for any warranty issues. There has been some feedback from alvian that post-sales warranty support from Toshiba US may be lacking.
