I wish moderators would add this info as standard.

Drive is a WD white helium drive as always for 8TB and above. For most practical considerations identical to WD red drives. Actual WD red drives can only be found in WD's duo extenals. Anyone concerned enough to want to know the slight variations will have already searched the difference, and that's the best way to find an adequate answer.

10TB drives have been as low as £150 before, and are frequently on offer. £15 per TB is now routinely available on WD high capacity drives.

You'll probably get 170-220 Mbp/s on an empty drive .. if its a 7200 .,. 5900/5400rpm Y|MMV.
Good price! Heat added.

As friar_chris points out, the Price per Tb is often lower. However, we must expect prices to rise sharply in the coming months. I'm not wearing a tinfoil hat or panic-buying loo roll, but the impact of COVID-19 on manufacturing and supply chains + existing stock market fragility and instability + largest oil price crash in three decades = myriad problems.

WD manufactures mainly in China and SEAsia. Remember the spike in HD prices after the flooding in Thailand in 2011?

I really don't want things to go the way they seem to be going, but.... sheesh. I think we all need to face facts. It's been 12 years.

WD100EMAZ-00WJTA0 helium filled drives.

I've just used HD Sentinel to surface test the 8TB version WD80EMAZ-00WJTA0. Mine runs cooler than an air-filled drive and its Crystal Diskmark performance profile doesn't suggest a shingled drive (SMR), so I plan to shuck it and use in an unraid server.

I also wrote 900GB of files of several GB to it to look for the sudden slowdown found on some Seagate SMR drives when the PMR cache area fills. Disk transfer speed on the WD 8TB decreased gently and steadily as the disk filled, so pretty certain not SMR.
