We (and a friend) have bought a number of 8TB external WD drives for
external backups.  BUT you can remove them from the cases and use them
for internal drives.  On sale every once in a while at Best Buy for
~$160.  No problems in 2 years.

8TB for $160? Probably very slow 5400rpm (or even 4200rpm), so I'd
totally avoid those for system drives myself, as they would be dog slow.

Doesn't say. Contains a 'red' NAS drive, which somebody claims costs $300. I divided mine into 8 partitions -- various types of backups, and some I still haven't figured out what to do with.
