Default WDC 1TB Black FEAX $88 (Now $96) Amazon

I have bought coupla hundred of these drives over the years
This is first time I have seen preflood price.
I consider this the the quietest most reliable drive ever. Only had one issue in that time - had excessive vibration (off balance platter coating?), but still worked fine. Amazon immediately replaced it no questions of course.

$88 for the 1tb FAEX instead of the $89 3tb Cuda? Why on earth, if ever?

Warranty, thus effective reliability? Who wants a 3TB drive with only 1 year warranty? Not I.

Get your facts straight. The Barracuda has a 2-year, plus a 3 year extended for $9. All in 5 year, 3TB for for $99. Moot actually, since all the firmware issues that blindly resurface are from 1.5TB drive from 2007. Do your research, or not, it's your money.
