ps before i mislead others,

its 129.99 USD + about 26 SGD worth of shipping via vpost/cgw/whatever.

or you can buy from amazon at 139.99 USD with 11USD worth of shipping = 151USD +/-.

or you can also choose to buy from the prime now SG app, about 192 SGD all fees included.

The 10TB is 159.99USD usually.
for that price you will likely get

a WD Red @ 5400RPM that is highly not recommended for Synology + the warranty concern...

At your own risk - too many red flags.

Not sure if you saw this post. If you rather have warranty, so be it, I rather have hot spares, to each his own I guess

at that price, might as well just get another disk, forgo the warranty, given that if i buy locally for warranty, i can buy 2 of that disk. In this case, i can increase my uptime by having a hot/cold spare
Problems won't usually occur if you do not scrub every other day~.

I don't see why it is not recommended given that it runs cooler with lower power usage. The only drawback is the rebuilding time when the array fails, which should not matter as you should have backups anyway since you can always fall back to it if the other drives fail during rebuilding.

If you are talking about day to day performance, I think having a read cache ssd should solve some of the reading speed issues if that affects you, but given that most pple here are not even running 10Gbps locally yet, I think it shouldn't matter much.
