[購買問題] Constellation ES3 or RE4?

Need to upgrade desktop's HDDs (for storage) from 1TB to 2TB
Currently using Suckgate Constellation ES (...MN0011)
Should I stick to Constellation ES3 (...MN0033) or switch to WD RE4 (esp. WD2004FBYZ)?

Recommendations needed

Both come with 5 years warranty? Price will be the decisive factor for me. I prefer Xander and Synnex as well.

Depending on model, Currently mentioned may only contain Three years warranty because they are efficient but "outdated". If you care board issues, ES.3 (STXXXXNMYYY3) may be the last model of SEAGATE or WD series you can currently rely on .

What board issues?  Constellation's base PCB is buggy?  How?

BTW current stocks are VST-warranted only w/3 years on the Suckgate and 5 years on the WD
Synnex-warranted stock is almost impossible to find

Any suggestion?

I would not pay extra for an enterprise HDD with 3 years warranty only.

Capital and Centralfield do not have WD from Synnex?

Enterprise HDDs are built with higher shock resistance and fault tolerance, not just simply 1 extra year warranty.

These two outlets sell at inflated prices I think
I plan to source them at MKCC (Jumb0 or SE) instead

Which is another valid reason why I would stick to these HDDs as C: drive in desktop builds instead of those flimsy SSDs, as data integrity is more important

ES.3 has no strange issues as the model is not encrypted but Onwards (V4+, NM,VN,DM,DX) is encrypted, Let's get it straight,. Does ES.3 support T13's sanitize function?  If it was, then you would need at least two for ease and vice versa if for work.

Do you know the weakness of being encrypted? If there was no correct code, then your information will be presumed lost forever depending on strength of code.
