dealswestern digital red wd30efrx 3tb hard drive for…


@davidmcgill: Yes, but Newegg also charges shipping too return DOA's. That I have a problem with, and I don't have to pay tax on amazon. That's where I have a problem with Newegg. Plus the one time I have had an issue, they made it a PITA to try and fix.


Remember though, Amazon charges tax, Newegg only charges tax in 3 states. Texas: $750 instead of $811 for 5. DOA's happen.


Awesome price, but the failure rate on these seems too high for me to trust my data to them.


I just finished researching these. It seems Newegg has more DOAs than Amazon due to shipping. Just keep it in mind, Amazon has a better (read: free shipping) return policy.


These are great drives for a NAS, just make sure your PC supports drives over 2TB. I use them in my fileserver, going to add one to the raid since they're on sale!


I was torn between these and regular Seagates for my NAS. I went Seagate even though they're technically not for NAS, because there are a lot of awful reviews on these Reds. 26% 1-egg? A LOT of DOAs? No thanks.

Cue the hard drive brand fight.


@joymonkey: I'm hoping you meant $149.99, not $749.99. LOL, sorry, I'm sure it was just a typo. I just did a double take the first pass around.


awww man i was just coming over here to browse for these. Am planning on building a nas in the next month or so, maybe this deal will pop up again or something similar.


@joymonkey: You must have posted as I figured it out, thanks!

I am in the middle of building a NAS machine so this was perfect! Thanks for costing me a grand before 9am OP!!


@coondogg97: look at the very bottom, after it mentions the -$100. it should say that your "Grand Total" is $749.95

The usual Newegg price is $179.99, there's $10 off right now, then the $20 coupon, so it totals $149.99 per drive.



Nevermind, it's $10 instant discount and then $10 coupon code to equal $20.

Got it, thanks!!!


must use promo code EMCXVXM23


@paulneibarger: Use code EMCXVXM23 to knock $20 off the price and get it to $149.99.


Goto Newegg and it is 169.99 not 149.99
