People buy one not a hundred so that there’s at least a chance they’ll honor it…

AC

Ill give it a shot…order processed and received receipt

aaron miller

This site has subpar ratings.

Abka

Any idea what specs to look for when ordering an enclosure?

max

thanks in for 2

YLJ

Thanks Dan! Just ordered 2!

bought one!

Can anyone recommend a good hard drive enclosure that would work for this?

DR

Please beware – these are SAS drives, meaning that unless your motherboard’s SATA backplane supports them – you will need at least a new cable and maybe a new SAS controller!

Thank you Dan!

Thanks so much Dan! I never have enough space so I bought two!

samuel

Thanks. How much aprox. How much $ Is a hard drive enclosure?

Jack

Thanks.

Bought a few for office use!

techie

FYI be careful, this drive uses an enterprisey SAS interface meant for disk arrays, not the normal SATA interface found in consumer systems. It may not be so easy to find an enclosure supporting it.

mas

@meir
lol slim chances that will happen

chaim

Awesome deal
i got 5

@Dan “You can buy a hard drive enclosure to make this into an external hard drive.”
Please give some links

Mark

in for one

exShorYoshuvGuy

I bought it, my current 500GB external is dying so this has enough space for everything if as you said I can buy an enclosure and make it external.

By the way, how am I posting comments too quickly if this is my first one of the day???

obnoxious guy

in for 2,000. Gonna resell them on ebay!!

iceberg

Thanks! Ordered three for my Synology NAS

question

how much can these be sold for on ebay or any other site?

GG

Thanks, ordered 2, we’ll see if it gets shipped

Sam

Bought one, hopefully they’ll honor it. Don’t get greedy, buying one gives everyone more of a chance.

TBM

Worked… Seemed too easy though😋

Osborne Greene

In for three. Let’s see what happens…

JimJam

@Dan: Thanks so much. I ordered 8 of them. Was meaning to build a box in the house to store photos and media and this is PERFECT!

@Abka: Any enclosure that is for 3.5 and supports SAS connections. USB3 or Thunderbolt depending on what connection you’d like.

mikey

why not. just resell it for the original price. business is business.

Coupon

Use coupon “ssocial2014a” for $10 off $150

mikey

@TBM: they didnt even ask for any info right?

essjaykat

Poor reputation likely means they won’t honor it or they will and you’ll get defective drives.

@obnoxious guy: im happy I bought before you I might still have a chance…..

Levi

@dan thanks! Got 6 let’s hope it pays off (who can’t use an extra couple $$ ?)

mike

keep in mind its a SAS interface not sata with most computers use

loubtouba

Bear in mind these are SAS drives and won’t connect to your regular computer SATA connection. For most of you this will be useless.

one day shipping

have to spring for the next day air shipping option

Order ONE please

Folks, there is only about a 3% chance that this will ne honored, and that is if you order ONE. If you order multiple, then it’s a 0% chance for everyone.

Don’t be greedy.

mas

there’s no way they’ll fill it… sorry for being a debbie downer

chana k

@exShorYoshuvGuy: This site says “Your comments are posting too quickly” when there are too many comments being posted by all readers at the same time.

loubtouba

You guys better all cancel your orders. These will be useless to you. These are enterprise drives that are meant for use in arrays and servers with special backplanes. THEY DONT SELL SAS ENCLOSURES.

@Dan you should update this post to reflect that.

Chaim photographer

I just bought 4 for a new RAID system, this is a steal, i hope they honor it

@DR:

PLEASE READ THIS COMMENT OR YOU WILL SPEND LOTS OF MONEY ON A SAS CONTROLLER.

fadsf

i heard oyu can get in trouble from the police for buying these

charly

There are no USB enclosures that handle SAS. There are many features that just wouldn’t translate to USB. The only SAS external enclosures are 4-12 bay things that need an external HBA. The cheapest is $230. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816111183) You’d have to get an HBA to even use that, so figure on another $150 at least. A Dell T110 II server with a H200 SAS HBA would run less than $900, but it doesn’t have hot swap capability. At the very least, you’d have to get a SAS HBA for a desktop machine.

Seems like you can use this with both the SAS and SATA interface according to the amazon description….

The Seagate Constellation Internal Drive series brings you everything you could want in a capacity-optimized enterprise hard drive and is ideal for bulk-data applications. Features the highest-capacity large form factor with up to 4 TB of storage for demanding data growth, plus, sixth-generation drive technology with SAS and SATA interfaces for 24×7 reliability you can trust.

@anonymous
that’s because amazon sells sas & sata drives

greed

idiots that buy 5, greatly increase the chance of cancellations. thanks morons

al613
Sam

Just ordered 3. Isn’t this a 4tb hard drive? What is it?

Ingvar

ORDERED 5, THEN CALLED TO CANCEL (THIS IS NOT SATA DRIVE!), THEY TOLD ME I’M 10TH PERSON TO CANCEL THIS MORNING 🙂 NOT EVERY DEAL IS A DEAL! :))

Sam

Why not just sell them on ebay? Why tell them about the mistake?

Joy Cohen
Susie

I called Seagate technical support to ask if this could be used on SATA. Their answer was that it would require a SAS cable costing around $200.

Osborne Greene

What’s up with all the douchey naysayers?

ted

In for 2!

Sam

$200 from them maybe, but $11 from Amazon:

Bob

You can use the cable to connect to a SATA port. HOWEVER, you need to ensure that your motherboard supports SAS drives. This does not convert the usability.
Make sure the motherboard that you are connecting to supports SAS as well as SATA.

Steven Nerenberg

If you look on the side bar “You might also like” it is listed there for $272. Then you click on it and it goes up to $274.

Jackmarius

i just called pcRUSH customer service and they said as of last night this deal is dead. they said all ordered placed today will be cancelled. this was a promotion by seagate and the price wasnt an error. just that anyone who ordered them today will have their orders cancelled

Ezra

@Jackmarius:

Are you slow or stupid Rule #1 you never call a company when it comes to something that might be a price mistake thanks for potentially ruining the deal for everyone

chana k

How do I find out if my computer supports SAS drives?

Tnx

@Jackmarius:
Thank you. Very nice of you.

Doc

this will cancel or I just upgraded my 3TB HDD to 4TB and made some money

Dan (not THAT Dan!)

Dead. The link simply goes to their home page. 🙁

Dan (not THAT Dan!)

It’s now $306.75 – definitely a price mistake. I hope they honor everyone else’s but I highly doubt it.

DR

Item already has been pulled – seems dead

Anonymous

You cant get it any more for $39 deal is dead

Guy

What’s the most anyone ordered here?

mas

Time to push these deals to approved members that can comprehend the rules of a price mistake

Guy

If this deals goes through, when will we know?

b l

@dan @jj next time when you posting a deal like this please include the rules “what do and what not to do” of getting this kind of deals canceled.

Thanks

Guy

Order still pending

Curtis

@ B l

It’s not Dan’s duty to remind people to not be stupid. I do think that he should have noticed it was SAS and not SATA and mentioned that in the title though.

Doc

looking forward to the first cancellation email.. who is gonna be first!?

do we have a history of how PCrush deals with pricemistakes?

josh

Dead…!

moshe

They got up to it. And shut it down. Deals dead.

Sammy

I ordered 4, checked my cc, and was already charged… Why in your right mind would you call the company, I’m curious what your mindset was. “Hello, Customer Service? yea you guys screwed up your pricing… I really hope my order is fulfilled I could really use the extra space

Anonymous

@Meir: Not available

sam

@dan are the orders gonna go through or will it be cancelled. what do you think?

Eitan

In for one. Hopefully it works!

Guy

Any status if orders are going through or cancelled?

Curtis

@Sam – why do you ask Dan such impossible questions??

Moka

Order cancels due to OOS

mas

All cancelled … status reads: “Orders Review Declined”, and no, it’s not my card that got declined. A couple of orders were done with Amazon Payment with successful charges.

sammy
