    On sale again? I feel like this isn't quite the hot deal it use to be.

    From what I recall it's $170 when on sale with the flash drive. Already have 2 flash drives I have no need for so that didn't stop me from picking up a couple of these.

    3334F820-9D9E-4954-9553-F1F5B992D806.jpeg Got mine from Newegg. No tax. Slightly different model? EasyStore at best buy vs. Elements at Newegg?

    Just arrived today. $320 shipped for the twins.
    Going in my QNAP NAS to replace two 5GB drives that are >80% full.

    Had I seen the more recent $100 deal for the 8Gb drives on slickdeals, (now expired) I would have done that instead.

    https://slickdeals.net/f/13024450-8...rd-drive-99-99-f-s-w-prime?v=1&src=SiteSearch

    These 10GB Element drives are plenty fast for Gb connected NAS though. At least twice as fast as the NAS will be able to move data through the Gb network port.

    Also missed the 8TB deal, but I'm not quite ready yet.

    I am trying to keep my array fully populated with identical drives. 16 drives every time I upgrade - it's a pretty healthy investment.

    They changed the price back to $299.99 just as I hit purchase, and it charged me that amount, the freaking timing!
