If its just for storage then i would suggest shucking some WD elements hard drives as they work out a lot cheaper.

A 14Tb can be had for £250 at the moment and will contain a white label drive (WD140EDFZ). It has been as low as £189 and last week was £210.

I have two of them which i use for my movie and mp3 collections. They run cool, are quiet and have good transfer rates. I get around 200mb/s copying from one to the other.
