EU fag here, What is Cyber monday? I already can see deals in amazon, I wanna buy some 2-3 Tb internal disc drive for scientific research storage purpose. Should I wait until monday or is it on already?

Also, what should I buy, western digital or seagate? (I don't want to lose those precious scientific data)

Found some 103$ for a WD 3Tb internal disc drive, good or crap deal?
>>
>>51598034
Yes. Buy, buy, buy.
>>
>>51598034
CRAP DEAL

WD BLUE 3TB IS $65 WITH NEW CUSTOMER DISCOUNT AT JET
>>
>>51598122
there is no 3GB WD Blue
>>
>>51598122

I have to take also in mind shipping price to europe.

Also, again, what is jet, a website?
>>
>>51598034
>dont want to lose those precious scientific data
kek
anyway buy now, as for WD vs seagate i prefer seagate but many say WD is better. from experience they are both about the same so im not sure buy whatever you prefer?
>inb4 seagate is shit
>>
>>51598169
yes jet.com.

>>51598169
DOUBT THEY SHIP TO YUROP, MAYBE YOU CAN GET A PACKAGE FORWARDER TO DO IT

JET IS A DROPSHIPPER, THEY HAVE A $25 OFF CODE FOR NEW CUSTOMERS
>>
>>51598034
>What is Cyber monday?
Literally a meme
>>
jet does not ship to europe so I cannot use it. sad days
>>
>>51598034
So we used to have two shopping days here in Burgerstan

Black Friday was a day for the physical stores to sell off excess inventory and such

Cyber Monday was for online retailers to sell all their shit

But with how big Black Friday has become, everyone basically said "FUCK IT" and made Black Friday a weekend long deal on shit.
>>
related, I was gonna buy a couple HDDs to use in a RAID with one I already have, will it work better if I buy the exact same disk or should I just go with the cheapest option?
>>
What's the difference between hard drive colors?
>>
So, no chance of other discounts for stuff like GPUs tomorrow if it isn't discounted already?
>>
>>51598422
Software won't give a fuck.

Hardware will most likely work, in a production environment I'd be careful to use as identical disks as possible to avoid catching shit.
>>
>>51598496
BLUE IS THE NEW GREEN, THEYRE WD'S PLEB TIER DRIVES

PAY OUT THE ASS FOR HELIUM FILLED HGST ULTRASTARS IF YOU WANT THE BEST HARDDRIVES

OTHERWISE MAKE SURE TO RUN A HIGH REDUNDANCY RAID SCHEME, LIKE RAID6 DOUBLE PARITY, THEN SWAP OUT YOUR FAILED PLEB DRIVES FOR RMA WHEN THEY FAIL WHICH THEY WILL

>>51598422
CONSUMER DRIVES ARE ALL SHIT TBQH, JUST CHECK WARRANTY TO SEE FOR HOW LONG THEY'LL SEND YOU REPLACEMENTS

DONT PUT DATA YOU CARE ABOUT ON THERE WITHOUT A BACKUP
>>
>>51598622
would you think 4 drives would be enough for RAID 6?
>>
>>51599030
Yes it's the physical minimum amount for it.
>>
>>51599030
4S THE MINIMUM

REALIZE YOUR USEABLE SPACE GETS SLASHED

JBOD WITH NO PARITY IS MAX SPACE BUT LIVING ON THE EDGE, FOR DATA YOU DONT CARE ABOUT ITS AN OPTION

http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/the-enterprise-cloud/raid-6-do-you-really-want-it/

What do you make of this then
>>
>>51598122
WD Blue EZRZ spins at 5400RPM only 1TB EZRX spins at 7200RPM
>>
>>51598523
I'm browsing like a retard a lot of websites but i still think they wont give a fuck. In EU black friday and cyber monday are an organized scam
>>
>>51599840
RAID 10 SLASHES YOUR SPACE EVEN MORE

>>51600005
SO WHAT, HE SHOULD BE RUNNING HIS OS AND PROGRAMS OFF AN SSD

5400 VS 7200 REALLY ISNT A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR STORAGE

WD BLACKS ARE FROM A TIME BEFORE MAINSTREAM SSD, A BLACK WOULD BE UR OS DRIVE
>>
>>51598235
I can just make multiple accounts for multiple $25 dollars off right
>>
>>51598034
I've told you already Pat buy a fucking blue drive easy.
>>
>>51600269
THEY USED TO NOT CARE BUT THERE ARE REPORTS OF BLACKLISTING ADDRESSES FOR MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS RECENTLY, UP TO YOU TO ROLL THE DICE
>>
>>51598122
Jet actually called me yesterday to confirm a order. They thought I was trying to scam their system.
>>
>>51598235
Says 89.99
>>
>>51600402
YEAH THEYRE CRACKING DOWN, A MONTH AGO WAS A FREE FOR ALL

Stupid nigger asshole. Needs promo code "NEWTOJET" to see the discount. And it's not $65. It's $69.99

This Wireless NIC (AC1200) worth $40? Goes down in price with a promo code from $60.

Ya I know wired is better and I'm on it right now. Talking more about when i go to other people's places with my tower.
>>
>>51600497
Alternatively, I can get this for $15

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122490&ignorebbr=1

But USB 2.0 and I heard bad things about USB period.

I just got some 3tb wd reds for 109 on amazon, not bad considering a 3 year warranty.
>>
>>51600623
you use a NAS?
>>
>>51600783
Nope, eventually they will be used in one but for now these will just be storage drives.
>>
>>51598034
Don't ever buy 1.5 / 3GB drives, they have the highest failure rates.
