OK. This has been bugging me. Well more confusing me. The price of two 14TB hard drives on Newegg.

ST14000VN0008
14TB
1M hours MTBF, 3-year limited warranty.
$439

ST14000NM001G
14TB
2.5M hours MTBF, 5-year limited warranty.
$343

Is there really ANY reason I should take the more expensive Ironwolf over the Eos for a FreeNAS home box? Is there anything I am missing here? The 5 year warranty and higher spec HDD is LESS than the 3 year warranty lower spec?

EOS are datacenter hard drives (Helium sealed-drive). They are better than IronWolf.
It is probably a Black Friday discount because usually EOS are more expensive than IronWolf.
