I was looking for a decent price for an 8TB hard drive and found out this deal today.
Not as good as the AfterPay Deal but still a decent price.
Edited: Price jacked to AUD288.15
Original Coupon Deal
I have one of this installed on my pc. It makes a very loud noise
Is there something wrong with it? i have 4 of these 8tb's and can barely even notice it.
I don’t know to be honest. But even my 5 years old hdd doesn’t make that lousy noice. It’s very frustrating. I don’t think I would buy any other hdd.
I did watch a few youtube videos to see what’s the normal noise of a hdd and mine makes the exact same noise
I got one recently also makes loud noise when the head spins
Yup. The noise almost sounds like a sewing machine haha
Sold! God i miss that sound.
Is it due to Chia coin mining? Price seems increase from around $210 last month.
Oh yeah man, those sneaky miners finding a way to mine using hard drives alone.
It's unlikely since Chia mining benefits from fast storage specifically.
The NVME drives from china designed for Chia mining are multiple fold better, and cheaper.
I probably can't use up 8TB, but Im do waiting for a decent deal of hard disk like 4TB for my new desktop build.
chia benefits from fast storage for plotting, you use bulk storage for the actual production of chia

its coming up as $288? EDIT figured it out was price jack. Computer alliance has it for similar price.
