Upgrade NAS and Plex with Seagate's 16TB and18TB CMR hard drive (HDD) deals

If you have been following Neowin for the last several months or so, you may have noticed that solid-state drive (SSD) prices have dropped quite a lot though analysts say NAND as well as DRAM prices could be going up again.

Except for the latest PCIe Gen5 NVMe drives (which are totally unusable without heatsinks), most of the previous-gen NVMe SSDs, as well as external portable drives, have dropped in price, though, again, that could be changing soon as retailers and distributors adjust inventories and demand.

However, it hasn't been all that great for shoppers looking to buy CMR-based internal hard disk drives (HDDs) due to a lack of great deals frequently, they have been few and far between. Newegg is offering the Seagate 18TB enterprise-grade Exos X18 drive for a very good price (buying link below), thanks to a discount promo code. There is also a somewhat okay deal on a 16TB Ironwolf Pro model but the Exos one is by far the better one.

As mentioned above, the drives are based on CMR or Conventional Magnetic Recording technology and hence, it is ideally suited for use in NAS (network-attached storage) or Plex and other media servers, that are meant for heavy-duty usage, running for long periods.
