2x 8TB NAS Seagate Ironwolf Drive (+ $35 Prezzee eGift Card Redemption) $500.40 Delivered + Surcharge @ Shopping Express


I've been looking to upgrade my 3TB NAS RAID and spotted this deal. You need to add 2 to the cart, however you get a $35 gift card, 10% off the 2 drives plus the $35 gift card. All up it cost me $500.40 delivered by paying direct deposit. It's +$5 for CC however us OzBargainers will always take the $5 savings! It's around $100 better (plus the $35 gift card) than the best deal I could find previously.

    Aren't the drives from https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/828443 much better value?

    • -5

      You are comparing non-NAS drives of a different model AND factory seconds recertified. So yeah sure a Datsun 180B is 'better value' than a Ferrari, but it's not apples for apples is it?

        Some of those are NAS drives. They have IronWolf Pros on their store. IronWolf Pros are NAS drives.

        • Iron wolf pro are far better than iron wolf too reliability wise

    • These are different drives. Definitely better value but those drives are refurbs and not ideal to put in RAID (eg wrong timeout values if an error is detected).

      If a drive doesn’t explicitly say it’s a RAID model, it’s not ideal for RAID. It’ll work though. But when it starts failing, your raid controller may handle it very badly.

      • What’s the difference between factory recertified and refurbished? I got 2 14TB drives from them, both 0 run hours and work fine now

        My post is partly wrong, EXOS is fine for NAS/RAID and similar to these drives. Ignore that part!

        The other deal above is for used/refurb/reconditioned drives, so the drives are still different (but not nearly as much)

      EXOS are Seagate's enterprise tier of drives. They will be fine for RAID use.

      However, note that that seller is selling OEM/recertified/refurbished drives.

      • what does that mean? are they used? seconds?

    Hmm, I'm not getting the 10% off?

    • Yep, shows $555 + $11 postage for me, where's the deal?

  • OzBargainers will always take the $5 savings

    Sophisticated OzBers getting greater worth with CC in terms of points, incentives, etc. won't.

  • Having gone through a few iron wolfs recently in under 2 yrs as nas drives and another mate with 4 failures in 6months I won’t be buying them again ever…

    • I stopped buying Seagate well over 10 years ago after multiple failures, and have not had a dead HDD since

      It's funny how of you look up WD, you get the exact same response and experience…

      The grass is greener on the other side?

      • +1

        Yep, way more issues/drive failures with WD than any other company for me.

      • man i give up hey, i had a 4 bay nas now an 8 purely coz i dont trust anyone now… in my nas i have
        2x 8TB WD red - fine
        2x 8TB Iron wolf (had not anymore replaced with 2x Exos)
        4x 12TB Exos - fine

        I replaced the iron wolf with exos (basically iron wolf pro lets be honest)

        I suspect some years of bad wd red but loads of bad iron wolf from what i can tell, i just trust nobody now and waste storage :D

        • Well I have WD 3TB in the raid right now and one of those failed within 3 months from new. It's a spin of the wheel really.

    • +3

      It's funny, the brand of drive I own is far more likely to fail me than the brand of drive I did not buy…

      • well i should have added context… the 2x wd red sitting in the bays next door were perfectly fine…. the exos in the bays next to that are fine still

    • +1

      (2x8tb in this deal)

      • Thanks im blind

    • +1

      The posted deal is for 2x 8TB drives, 16TB

  • its not a bad deal but it could be better :D

    • Every deal could be better in theory, it's the best I could actually find today.

  • +3

    Amazon has it for $513 after the 5% off. I'd pay the $13 more to get it from amazon. Shopping express if there's a problem is a nightmare to deal with.

    • And you still get the $35 gift card!

      • Are you sure you still get the gift card with international stock? Especially when not sold in a 'bundle' of two?

    • Yeah I looked at that but that's not Aussie stock, so warranty becomes an issue.

    • Agree, terrible customer service if there is an issue. Had to get PayPal involved to get a refund as customer service is non-existent.

      Pay more to get it from elsewhere.
