Following up on this because $20/TB is finally back in Canada after something like 3 years (edit: and briefly in 2019). $200.19 for a Seagate Expansion 10TB Desktop External (STEB10000400) Best ever pricing on these drives.

Buyers who shucked these are still reporting mostly Ironwolf Pros and EXOS X16 drives which is a phenomenal upgrade on the Barracuda Pros found at first in these and in the 8TB models.

That said this sale ends Nov. 26 and it is to wonder what the Black Friday pricing will be if there were stock left. WD usually will follow with not-quite-as-good pricing but their fans tend to be more loyal and WD drives are reputed quieter.

I saw that these were on sale and have been searching all over to find out what drives are in these. All I've seen is reports (at least as recent as 3 months ago) is that they are Barracuda Pro drives in them. I haven't found anyone reporting Ironwolf Pros or EXOS drives in them. (not that I've seen every single report ever, mind you) Do you know of any sources confirming they have switched over? If I knew for sure they were, I'd grab two for my backup NAS but I'm not interested in Barracuda Pro drives.

I PMed you a link to the my source for this, a very popular Canadian deals (non-tech) forum. There are no guarantees you'll get the one you're looking for, but the accumulated intelligence is rather compelling, especially with returns allowed for unopened drives until January 16th, 2021. As those reports stand now, and discounting any shills:

    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/

    • Thank you! I'm looking through that thread now. It looks like I'll be dropping by Best Buy on my way home tonight to have a look at what they have! They have 10TBs in stock, so maybe I'll grab a couple!
