It has been a while since the WD 2TB WD2002FAEX (SATAIII) Caviar Black was at this price.
For those who don't know the difference. These are the Caviar Black 5yr warranty drives that are a must for "Power Users". Also have a 4 1/2 star rating on both B&H and Amazon (670+ reviews)
These have been kicking around between $165-$200 since the flood and a few times have dropped to $145-$155 but far and few between... While the RED drives are now becoming the Defacto for NAS Systems these are excellent in Raid Arrays.

While these are great, they do not have the ability to set TLER as far as I know, which makes them a bit less then great for RAID arrays. WD wants you to buy the RE4 drives, which are really the same drives but with a different TLER setting.
