Im looking into buying a 16-18tb drive (biggest i have atm is 8tb). I could get:
External WD Elements 16tb for 259 euros (16.18/tb) or Toshiba Enterprise 16tb (MG08ACA16TE) for 9 euros more.
External WD Elements 18tb for 289 euros (16.05/tb) or Toshiba Enterprise 18tb (MG09ACA18TE) for 12 euros more.
If i get an external drive, i will shuck it. The drive will be used solely in a home desktop pc just as an additional drive, no RAID or anything of the sort. Keep also in mind that the enterprise drives are OEM, so no 5 year warranty, just 2 year warranty from the merchant, so practically the same as the WD externals.
Does it makes sense going for the enterprise drives? considering the warranty is the same, and that i will using them in a desktop?
