NOTE: These appear to be OEM Drives and therefore there is no warranty available on the disks even though they are technically being purchased from Newegg AU site. Not a lot of concern raised in the previous threads so it doesnt look like people have run into much trouble with the Drives so far but something to note.
Slightly cheaper again on some good CMR 16TB disks under the current free shipping deal to AU.
The prices seem to be volatile on this model going from $553 to $523 in the last 2 days so you can gamble and see if it drops further.
Most reviewers rate the EXOs better than the Toshiba MG08 drives, but as usual YMMV.

According to seagate support the only distributers they support are
Ingram Micro Australia Pty Ltd
Synnex Australia Pty Ltd
and their recognized resellers are
PC CASE GEAR
so if you have purchased from any other reseller or Amazon, you might have trouble to RMA the drives unless the seller has purchased through the above resellers/distributers.
