Hi guys, 

 

Have a FreeNAS box that has 8x14TB Drives - I was using it to store crap-ton of 4k movies and TV Shows, but have now offloaded that all onto cloud storage, so won't need more than a couple.

 

Drives are in perfect condition, looking for receipt now, but only a few months old. Retail price is ~$920 so looking for about $800 each

 

Interested in any offers

Ahh... Quick question. What cloud provider did you use to store all of that? Was it ridiculously expensive?

Google Drive haha I have a G Suite account and it is supposed to be unlimited for over 5 users and 1TB if fewer than 5 users but they don't really check

I wonder if they will check once you store nearly 100tb of data. I get that you probably used raid, but 100tb sounds better.

Hi,

 

Tempting, but ideally i'd probably like to avoid shipping these.

 

 

 

Where are you located.
