    Main PC:
    1x 250GB Samsung 850 SSD - OS and Programs
    1x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD - Scratch Disk/Page File (kept from old pc)
    2x 1TB Western Digital Blue - Work Asset Storage/Downloads/Backups/Normal Doc storage etc
    1x 1.5TB Seagate something or other - Media, ie music and videos, Storage (kept from old pc)
    Also have a Pioneer BDXL blu ray for archiving data.

    I do kind of need more storage so might be swapping out the 1.5TB for a larger one soon or I may just get another nas instead.

    1x1TB SSD
    3x8TB HDD
    4x4TB HDD

    If anyone can explain to me why £ per TB has remained stagnant for the past 10+ years I would be pretty happy to hear a legit answer.

    There was a flood a while back in Asia which damaged HDD factories so it lead to a shortage and prices went up. However,even when said factories were repaired and everything went back to normal,the HDD companies stuck with the inflated pricing whilst also cutting back on warranties.

    Re: QOTW: How much storage is there inside your main PC?

    A lot less than there used to be

    1tb SSD as main drive
    250gb SSD as steam drive 1
    150gb SSd as steam drive 2
    3TB "data" drive
    2TB "Data 2" drive

    Of that only 40% or so is in use. It's all backed up to amazon Glacier too - which is mostly why the space i use has dropped...more and more of my stuff goes in the cloud now, and less and less is stored locally. More reliable, cheaper, and given how fast & pervasive internet connections are now it's just not necessary to have everything locally.
