On Datahoarding and Price Mistakes (Or Really Good Sales?)

Early this morning my inbox was filled with alerts from Slickdeals informing me that 10TB Western Digital hard drives were available on Amazon.com for the incredibly low price of $79.99. I thought to myself "literally too good to be true" and ordered as many as I could. I even got my father- and sister-in-law to order the max allowed as well (3 each). Shortly after, Amazon raised the price back to $235+. All three orders went through and I got confirmation emails, but we'll see if Amazon actually fulfills the orders.

If I get the drives, I'll be able to max out the space in my NAS, and bump my total usable storage from 32TB to 72TB (5x8TB and 5x10TB drives). That should last me...awhile. Maybe...
