If only they had 8TB HGST for $200, I'd jump in.

 

These are entirely awesome drives for a NAS.

Are these good drives for an unraid server?

 

I have a 4TB HGST NAS as parity drive in my backup server.  I have the 8TB version (I paid $240 for it) of the HGST NAS as the parity drive in my main server.  HGST NAS are excellent 7200RPM drives.  I run them as parity and WD Reds as array drives.

 

These would also be excellent array drives. They spin faster than the lower RPM WD Reds, so you will likely have a bit more heat and power usage from them, but, I would not hesitate to purchase these at this price if you are looking for a few drives for your array or parity drives. They are very highly rated.
