Advice about used HDDS

Hello and thank you in advance for the advice. I'll try and keep this as short as possible.
I am looking to turn my old PC into a home Plex/Jellyfin server (used Plex for years but thinking about switching to Jellyfin)
I'm looking to get as much storage as possible on the cheap...was thinking about getting 2 used EXOS drives from either ServerPartDeals or GoHardDrive. Tons of people on reddit have had good things to say about them as well as bad things. Was wondering if you had experience with either or both? I don't know anything about RAID - was just looking to get a huge amount of storage for media storage (if a drive fails eventually the data can be easily replaced) SVP offers a 2 year warranty while GHD offers a 5 year - the drives i was looking at Seagate Exos X16 14TB or Seagate Exos X18 14TB depending on SVP or GHD. Also do you think EXOS is the way to go? They also have WD ultrastar drives for around the same price.
Thank you thank you thank you Smile
