    Who has a storgeage festish?

    Re: Who has a storgeage festish?

    LOL .. same here man! I recently ran out of space, and I got myself a WD6400AAKS but I can't stop thinking about going in Raid 0 with another one! Storage Fetish .. maybe its the thought that the prices keep coming down and eventually it wil hit a sweet spot such that you can't resist scrambling for your cc and spending hard-earned cash on what seems like the best deal mankind has ever seen to be.

    Re: Who has a storgeage festish?

    I know the feeling dude. I have dreams of a NAS box with something ridiculous like 10 x 1TB drives in it... I've only got about 600Gb worth of files but I still want it!

    I have the same problem with RAM. There's no saving me.

    Re: Who has a storgeage festish?

    Well, with the cost of HDD space being so low, why not spoil yourself?! You can pick up 1TB drives for around the £100 mark now. I'm still waiting for BD media to come down a bit, then I can store safely on that.

    Re: Who has a storgeage festish?

    I have 4TB in my HTPC - 2x750gb and 5x500gb drives. I have a newly built NAS machine hooked up to my 24" 1080p bedroom tv (a monitor in fact) which only has a 500gb drive in it, but has the capacity for 5 or so in the current case. I just bought anotherr 750gb drive too, which will eventually go into one of my XBMC modded Xbox 1's.

    That's ignoring all the other drives in the pcs in the flat... And the fact that I bought a 120gb Western Digital drive to mod and put into my 360, even though I've never used more than 3 or 4gb of space on that.

    Storage

    <stands up>
    My name is Sam and I am addicted to storage too.

    I have three 250Gb and one 40Gb drive in an Ubuntu server
    I have a 250Gb external drive on a NSLU2
    I have two 160Gb drives in my desktop and I have just bought another 500Gb drive which should be here today (thanks Scan!)

    Re: Who has a storgeage festish?

    Know exactly what you mean, just bought a cheap TS-ProII 1Tb version with 4x250Gb drives in it, have already ordered 4x500Gb drives for it...

    Is it bad that I already have 1x 2Tb NAS?

    yeah...

    thanks to this chap, i too have an NSLU2 with a 500gb Mybook attached....

    that's how it starts you see, you start off small, with good intentions to solve a simple storage issue and then, before long, it begins to grow... and grow... and grow....

    I have an upgrade fetish in general.
    Storage is no exception.
    I don't even need all this space, yet I'm still eyeing up newer drives like the 640GB WD
