12TB for $85 !
« on: March 01, 2024, 01:05:13 PM »
I'm seeing a bunch of "brand name" 12tb refurbished drives @ $85
OK, so 2 Mirrored Disks as RAID1 for $170, and what are the odds that both would fail at same time?

"Big Data" comes to my double drive external bay...

serverpartdeals.com is another great source for recert drives, their 18TB have been $175-$190 for the last year and a half

HGST
$79 with 5 year seller warranty.

vendor has been around for a long time and is one of the two major players in the recert drive market.

id recommend doing a deep surface scan on these when you get em and of course keep backups as always

"600 sold in the last 24 hours"!

Edit: fter reading the comments over on Slickdeals I bought a couple.  Many people said they generally have gotten drives with 25,000 to 35,000 hours on them so they should still be good for another few years of general non-critical service.  I'll dump them in the old Synology Plex server which will easily cover my video library plus my ripped CD collection.

I work at an IT company (but not in IT) and they send thousands of drives every year to a recycle company just like this that does a DoD wipe and resell on them. Storage is constantly evolving and they burn through warehouses full of this kind of stuff. I asked if I could have a few of the flash drive storage units (1U racks with a bunch of Samsung 32G flash memory in it) that they are replacing this year and I got "only if you want to get fired" so contractually they have to ship them to get wiped and "recycled". Right outside my door there's pallet sized bins (like you would see watermelons in at the grocery store) full of hard drives/flash storage/switches almost all the time.

I'm not surprised they can sell hundreds per hour.

Nobody wants to deviate from NIST guidance in the US
NIST wants a Certificate, Chain of Custody, and assurance that it was burned, pulverized, or otherwise fully obliterated.
Ask them when their Cloud provider is going to deliver their storage media back for destruction.     >:D
