I really need to purchase some form of storage for the movies, torrents, etc I have been downloading..some suggest external HDs others suggest making my own external (enclosure/internals) and then many say just add another internal HDD. Is it as easy as they say? I mean..you slide it into an empty bay, screw it in...and then what? What is the best bang for your buck? I have no experience building comps etc..so if installing a new internal is hard then Ill just buy external.
I currently have Disk Drive: Samsung HD502HJ. SATA 3.0Gb/s. 500GB...this item is now discontinued so I dont know what I would buy? Thanks...
Side note: what is with the subscriptions on this website? I find it very difficult to find any threads i have previously posted in..or even threads I have started. There is no subscribe buttons anywhere and this makes navigation difficult.
your Q about how many videos... there's absolutely no way to figure that out without knowing the average size of a movie you're referring to, but I'll make it simple... 1 movie = 1GB, that means u'll have at least 450 movies on a 500GB drive
Well Im mainly going to be getting HD movies..arent these about 4GB? I think Ill stay at 500GB unless I find a good deal on 1TB.
Disk Drive: Samsung HD502HJ. SATA 3.0
