Need Inexpensive 8TB  3.5 inch drives

Last Modified: 2016-09-28
I am looking for an 8TB  3.5 inch drive to use in an external CRU enclosure.  It will be a backup drive, and part of a backup rotation.  So it won't be getting the constant use that an internal drive in a CPU would have.

What major brand drives are reliable and inexpensive?
