Hello everyone: Not sure if this is the correct Forum for this, but I just wanted to let you all know about what I consider to be a fantastic deal on some 4TB Drives at Newegg. Drashna, you can move it if you need to. To save everyone’s time, I’ll just give you the stats: · Brand: Toshiba · Model: MD04ACA400 (Bare Drive) · Capacity: 4TB · Size: 3.5” · Speed: 7200RPM · Connection: SATA 6.0Gb/s · Cache: 128MB · Warranty: 5-Years from Toshiba · Seller: Newegg · Item Number: N82E16822149644 (Newegg) · Shipping: Free, 3-Day Fed-Ex · Price: $93.49 (That’s $23.37 per TB, Delivered!) IMPORTANT: When you do a Search for the drive on Newegg’s site, do so using only the Newegg Item Number. The drive does not come up with an ordinary search, but the same model from GoHardDrive.com DOES come up for $93.00 or so with a 3-year warranty. If you want, you can just try this direct link to the Newegg offering: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822149644 Newegg says they are discounting the drive from $205.99 (55%). I found the Newegg offering quite by chance after I had to return BOTH the drives I purchased from GoHardDrive.com due to numerous bad sectors right out of the package. ALSO, the GoHardDrive units have Manufacturing dates 18-24 Months ago and GoHardDrive is providing the warranty themselves. The Newegg drives I purchased were made in Feb, 2018. I just finished running them through extensive testing and they are both in Perfect 100% Health with no errors at all. I have verified the 5-Year warranty by Serial Number directly on Toshiba’s website. Here’s the link for that (not easy to find): https://myapps.taec.toshiba.com/myapps/admin/jsp/webrma/addRequest1NoLogin.jsp?Action=NEW These seem to be good quality drives. When I bought them, Newegg was advertising them as Enterprise Drives. I already knew they weren’t however and I bought them anyway. 5-Years is a SUPERB Warranty! Now in the new listing, they dropped “Enterprise” and just say “Good for Servers”. Hope I’m not wasting your time. I did do a search on the Forum to make sure no one had already said something and I didn’t see anything. If you’re interested, don’t dally on it. Enough people already do know about them that they are selling like crazy. Newegg told me they are already on their second order of 10,000 drives! Hope this helps someone, GDog
