Sold by Amazon

Thanks OP

Man these drives have really kept their high price
I paid $110 (about £70) Canadian per 3TB red drive 4 years ago
What am I missing - why is this a deal?

Lightning deal is sold by Amazon, not the 3rd party seller.

As for the bargain, look at the price of HDDs right now...

Okay, so where can I get a WD 1TB Red for less than £41.86? No where.

2 and 3TB are still more cost effective, 3 is £104 for example

That's possible
I look for the best price per gb though - so not a great deal in my own personal opinion

I can hardly believe that in 4 years we haven't gotten any larger drives - was hoping to upgrade to 10TB by now

I got a 3tb wdred for £81 from Amazon (3rd party seller) about a month ago. They do crop up every know and again.

Such good drives.

I got a
WD Red 4TB Desktop Drive
Qty Ordered: 1
£ 111.99

From WD website the other week with a voucher from being on there mailing list!

For a desktop data drive, is the WD red much beter than the wd blue? If so in what manner. Obviously the reds are intended for NAS and being on 24x7 but does this mean they'll have an increased life span over the blue? Throughput is less an issue fwiw.
Thanks in advance

Expected longer lifespan yes as WD back the Red drives with a 3-year warranty whilst the Blue drives only carry a 2-year warranty but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's more suited for desktop use than one of their other drives.

The good thing about the red is if you wanna chuck them in a server you can

I wish they let you buy more than one, HOT.
