Has anyone here bought an external HDD to "shuck" (i.e. remove from the external shell and turn in to a normal SATA drive)?\n\nAmazon had an offer on an external 8TB drive for £119 a few days ago and I was sorely tempted to buy it, simply to take apart and use the drive in my NAS. It's a far cheaper way to get drives.\n\nHowever, it's at the expense of the warranty and the drive inside could be anything.\n\nHas anyone tried this before? If so, was the drive inside any good? I've heard some people getting WD Reds, which would be ideal for a NAS :D.
