WD External 10TB

I have been waiting for a while for these drives to drop to $159. It seems only the 10TB are pricey and have no more sales at Newegg or Best Buy. I won't buy a 12TB because then I'd have to ditch my 10TB parity. Wonder why they pretty much disappeared at that price while most all other drives are at least on sale once in a while.

My parity drive was a 12TB and the 14TB easystores were on sale for $189 each.  I couldn't pass it up so I bought 2.  Then I replaced my 12TB parity drive with the 14TB drive and then moved the 12TB to my array. In your case, sure you're only added 8TB to your array instead of 12TB but it will allow you a wider range of drives to add in the future. So I would say go for it if the higher tb drives have a good price point

I just (11/10) picked up a couple of 10TB WD Elements for $149 each from Newegg. I think Amazon may have had them for the same price at the same time as well.
