Terrabyte at last
 
At last the first consumer hard drive has been launched that beats the 1 Terrabyte size - awesome - about 200 so not a bad price either - I remember paying that for a 120mb!!!

Just googled around, and tried a few sites I normally use, and can't find it.

I hate the idea of having a terrabyte of data on one drive.

I recently bought 4 x 250gb drives, and a hardware raid controller, and put them all in an old pc, setup in a raid 5 array with FreeNas... I much prefer the data being shared over multiple drives, with redundancy! A terrabyte of data is a lot to lose.

With the four drives, I get about 800gb of storage space, using 400gb for music, 200gb for photos, and 200gb for other stuff... Freenas has a nice web interface, was easy to setup, and runs really well! Hasnt let me down yet.

I'd gladly scarifice capacity for a solid state device, I don't like mechanical things, they go wrong!

I like the idea of 4 x 1TB drives in my Raid5 array - would certainly beat the 4 x 300GB I have now which are rapidly running out of space :rolleyes:

If you don't like the idea of a single drive, Raid1 two together and hope they don't break at once :)

What is a raid1? Or just a raid for that matter? :eh:

:D

Scroll down to the "Standard Raid Levels" section for a quick overview

Still a little confused! Are they just ways to organise hard drives or summat? :]
