6 Drives on one interface? I hope you don't need to use them all at once
They will be used all at once eventually, but not for at least two to five or more years. I'm setting up a media center of sorts for someone, where all his movies are being streamed from his PC or laptop. The person needs to store 100 blu-ray disc, and 800 dvd movies. I figured three or six 2tb drives where enough, but seeing as how he has so many disc, and I don't want to be bothered anymore (at least not for a while) after I set everything up, I've decided to go with at least five drives. I wanted to go with a non-raid setup because I don't want a situation where the guy dumps everything to the drives, one drive goes bad and all a sudden the movies start to stream like crap.
