Unless you have bleeding edge hardware, you may find the 3TB a little unwieldy to work natively. Yes, there are work-ar... (more)

I posted this under the wrong category. Is there any way this can be moved to the correct category?

Amazon is now listing it matching Newegg's price ($89.99), free shipping with Prime (OPs link goes right to the new price).


I used the 5 off 25 from the other day on this

Same here.

Awesome OP, much thanks.

Went with this deal. $89 for 3 TB with Amazon's no hassle return policy in case of a DOA drive is a nice deal.

I posted the same question on another thread but haven't received any opinions, does anyone have an opinion?:

Help....need advice. This deal seems like a great one. I've been looking for a more energy savings for a HTPC that I'm building. I was leaning towards a WD green 5400rpm for storage. Is there any advantage to wait for a 5400rpm "green" drive or should I go for this deal?
Very tempted to go for this with warranty extension.
Thanks in advance for input

7200rpm performs better... much better.

but for a HTPC you probably wouldn't notice a difference

Are there any issues with this hd?

Seagate is ntorious for defects and bad hd...

Thanks everyone for staying up to date on this item, i had my eye on it as i had $5 coupon and $80 in Amazon rewards to use
i cant believe i just got a 3 tb harddrive for $5 bucks shipped only here at FW! Also thanks to "itsme13" for answering my
question so quick so i could pull the trigger b4 it was gone.

cheap prices, thanks need a few for backups

in 4 1, hopefully i will get a "good" one... I am used to WD but at this price I will willing to test.

I didn't realize, but I ended up paying tax through Amazon too.

A quick search gives these numbers: WD30EZRS Idle power: 3.65 W, Load power: 7.15 W - ST3000DM001 Idle power: 5.4 W Load power 8.0 W

Read through the reviews at various sites to get an idea.

Current Green drives don't work well in NAS/RAID setups (because of their firmware).

You're better off with NAS/RAID compliant (red) drives, or regular 7200 rpm drives.

EDIT: I have two of these in an external enclosure set up as RAID 1, no problems to report.

Thanks for the info, not really a huge difference in power consumption in my opinion.....I'm guessing that over time it really wouldn't make much of a difference in power savings....probably only pennies.

I am I correct in this assumption? If so, I believe should go for it and add the 3yr warranty

I know....buy the time I make a decision, it will be too late!

Sweet! One thing off my Black Friday list already!

It shows up as $144.95 for me in my cart.

Unless you have bleeding edge hardware, you may find the 3TB a little unwieldy to work natively. Yes, there are work-arounds and software by-passes but those are just bound to be trouble later. Make sure your BIOS and your OS will support it or you will end up with a less than ideal solution (having to partition, having to use a 3rd party overlay, not having anything over 2TB recognized etc.)... Not saying it wont work, just that it's not yet ready for prime time and will not be a plug and play experience for some if not most.
