IMO wait till Black Friday now. Last year you could find some ~$200 10TB externals.Sorry, i've been so busy at work since this msg as been posted.
First, i currently have 5X 3TB sata 3 in a Raid5 config, working with a LSI9261-8I. They are all connected via a SAS to sata cable.
I'm looking to buy 2 or 3 8tb drives to replace my old setup since my drives are getting older and before they died.
I think i gonna follow up the idea from Coach and i find this Seagate 8tb 169$ on amazon.
Is there any better place to buy hdd at better price ? Why hdd are still so pricy ?
