I’m looking to get an external drive. My understanding is that My Book and Elements are the same, with the former including encryption. WD Black is more expensive, and some seem to have found it to contain an Enterprise drive inside.
I see now that 12TB Black can be had for 20EUR/TB. Elements is best at 12TB for 16.7EUR/TB. My Book is the lowest at 14TB for 16.4EUR/TB.
Will it be worth it to pay for the WD Black?
1. Is it guaranteed to have a CMR drive inside (same applies to MB and Elements)?
2. Are all 12+TB drives Helium-filled? What about 8+TB?
I’ll be using it to store photos and videos.
