Limit 2 drives per order, and 1 rebate per person/address/company/household.

Of course there are ways to jockey around all of that, but I just wanted to point that out for people getting super excited about buying a bunch of RED drives for cheap.

Great deal if you need just 1.

It says it is a NAS drive. Will this work in a regular HT computer? My 2TB HD is getting full...

NAS drives are still just hard drives, after all. Should be an extended warranty, and are designed to run 24-7...
If that suits your purpose, then by all means, feel free. There are, however, less expensive ways to get 3TB drives for your HTPC.
And they go on sale regularly....

They are designed to be low power for NAS boxes, and have a few features that make them appropriate to that type of usage like anti vibration, and they play nice with RAID found in some nas boxes. They also have a "sleep" mode that uses very low power when not being used.

They would work fine for a PC, but you might find a cheaper option for PC. NAS drives (seagate just calls them "NAS" instead of "RED") are available from many MFG's and usually they have 3 year warranty (verus 2 with normal HDD) but cost a little more.

The "GREEN" would be the version of the RED that is not for NAS but for basic desktop storage.
