Waiting for the other shoe to drop. There HAS to be a reason these are so cheap, right? I've bought a ton of these because they are so cheap compared to other 8TB drives, but when I crack open the case, all I see is a normal Seagate Barracuda drive. The bare drive is going for $200 while this is $150, I can't tell what the difference is, though. This is a GREAT deal, I've bought several now and tossed the USB enclosures, and so far the drives have been working fine. No issues with any of the three I have purchased (all are less than a year old, keep in mind.)
