$143 - Seagate Expansion 8TB (shuck to reveal 7200 RPM 8 TB drive) US Amazon

The best 8 TB drive deal got even better:

 

Seagate Expansion 8TB Desktop External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STEB8000100)

 

Currently $142.49. I ordered one yesterday, it arrived today, and I just shucked it to reveal an 8 TB Seagate Barracuda Compute ST8000DM004, identical to this one selling for $210.

 

I have one of these already as my parity drive, purchased and shucked a few months ago. Same model as above.

 

The major downside is of course voiding the 1 year warranty by shucking the drive, so there's a gamble there. A more sagacious person would probably run burn in testing on the drive before shucking it, but I'm much too impatient for all that :)

I have shucked more than half a dozen of these in the past year, for me they have been very reliable and I’ve not had one fail.
