That is a lot of data to lose in one go!

If buying disks at that sort of capacity/price, I think I'd go for the 8TB Pro version - 5 Year warranty and 2 year data recovery

That is a lot of data to lose in one go!

So's the data you must store on whatever single hard drive you use with a comment like that.

TBH the volume of Data you have doesn't really matter as if it's important, then it doesn't matter if it's 1kb, 2TB or 100PB. If it's valuable and any disk dies then it's no different to any other precious digital file. If you're a film producer and lose a 10TB disk of 4k video that's being made into a project is no different to if you're a writer with a novel that takes up a few dozen megabytes.

People buying these sorts of drives are likely storing lots of large files and if anything is important then of course it should be backed up (ideally in the 3,2,1 process).

This deal seems pretty good OP. Just not sure I can justify spending £500+ for another 20TB of disk space.

First 10tb'er I've seen (I don't get out much in the PC world these days) what a time to be alive. 10year old me wouldn't believe the future when he was desperately managing space in his 6gig IBM box for his WinMX and Morpheus/Kazaa downloads.

OMG! This is some kind of witchcraft...

That's a lotta pr0n

suggest buy 2 if you dont want lose 10tb of data, seagate control board died quite often.

Buy another to back up the 10TB of data

If you value ANY data then it should always be backed up, preferably with at least 1 offsite/cloud in case of dire circumstance such as fire, where it's likely the original data and backup reside. If you feel it's not practical, then I'd say the data isn't important then really.
Anyway, not a bad deal OP. I prefer WD reds personally and the 4TB drives are approc £125, so couldn't get as much capacity, but if you need a few drives for spares, backup drives etc, then I feel the 4TB price point is the way to go. I have been considering the 8TB drive, but it only works out around £2 less than 2x 4TB, and other factors for RAID arrays make that more feasible. I don't have the spare cash to buy 5x 8/10TB drives right now to replace my whole array, unfortunately, but if I did then I'd go with the 8TB reds, but purely as I have been using reds for years now and their reliablity has been great.
I might pick up one of these for a backup drive though maybe. For the MOST important data, and then frees up some room on my backup NAS to make those disks last a bit longer before maxing the capacity.

You were spoilt! My first machine had a choice of a 10MB drive (ten megabytes!) or the 'large' 20MB drive... oh, and the machine had 512K of RAM - as Bill Gates said, no one will ever need more than a megabyte of RAM...

A WD Red 8TB is roughly the same price on Amazon. I've always found them reliable.

Love how these are sold as 10TB, but are actually 10TiB, so when you get them home and start using them you get 9.0949TB of space.

Just look at the MTFB (mean time between failures) and compare it with other brands.. on the paper this is very similar to WD RED.

That's how all hard drivers are sold. Drive manufacturers have always done this, instead of 1GB = 1024MB, they use 1GB = 1000MB.
When you bought a 120GB drive years ago, you only every had around 116GB of usable space on it. These days the numbers just seem bigger.

Hard drives are sold with Decimal numbers so 10 000 000 000 000 Bytes, for 10 TB Terabytes. Whereas Binary would be 10 995 116 278 TiB Tebibytes. The problem comes from the fact that sometimes people use MB GB etc for when they actually mean Binary so 1024 instead of 1000 (Decimal).
There is ALWAYS debate about this. But basically they are not falsely advertised as it states clearly that the drives are 10 000 000 000 000 Bytes (10 TB), but windows shows you the Binary number, but with the wrong suffix eg GB, when they should say GiB. So for example, in my dropbox properties it says 834MB, but then says 875,233,280 bytes is actually 875.233 Megabytes as it's decimal... what it should say is 834MiB MebiBytes (834.687232971).
10 TB (terabytes) 10 000 000 000 000 bytes = 9.094947 TiB (Tebibytes), which windows is showing you, but with the wrong suffix is all.
