    WD 10TB shuckable - Amazon $170

    It's going to be a nightmare when people can't read these monster sized drives at the end of the decade because all the helium has leaked out since the atoms are so tiny and slip through everything else Are older drives like 4TB blues still "air" ? Are 6TB still air?

    WD Easystore 14TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive - $200

    So I have decade-old 1TB and 500GB drives I can still fire up to check for stuff or old backups. When the helium slowly leaks out of these over a decade, are they basically going to be dead then? (helium atoms leaks through everything and anything, ultra small compared to anything they are...

    always check shucks .top first, not sure who made that site but darn handy price unfortunately is not hot compared to pre-covid days, we should be sub $15 by now, especially at that size, I'd be scared to not mirror/raid that large

    Hot: GE Full Spectrum Par 38 Grow Light

    Thanks for that - in all seriousness if anyone knows of a deal on UV-C bulbs/lamps that would be super awesome right about now as apparently it is known to kill covid19 with enough exposure, there are instructions on building a lightbox for sanitation.

    LiteOn Slim DVD-RW Open Box $7.05 shipped

    I love how we're in an age now where anyone selling something can just openly lie because truth is just accepted as always fuzzy and the sellers realize there's no penalty for just outright lying, I mean what are you going to do about it? the 100s of these on ebay under $9 listed as...

    [H]ot: 6TB WD My Book USB 3.0 external $99 @ Amazon

    8TB WD EasyStore $140

    the problem is we don't truly know the failure rate on these drives yet $130 for 8TB is awesome, unless it only last 3 years and has sudden failure where you lose everything it's not like these companies are worried about their reputation, only getting past warranty dates
