TC is trolling but whatever... I have had a 1TB drive for 2 years now and its fine for me. Its called space management..


nope not even kidding in the past year ive had to delete stuff twice


Seems like a personnel issue. Nothing to do with HDD's being small.

I have 1.5TB HDD for my pc just for games and music. I have a 1TB laptop with 3 external 2TB HDD's for Movies and TV shows. my laptop is basically a HTPC it never leaves my entertainment center and since it's a laptop it's easily hidden.


Assuming you watch blu rays thats 2,000mb per movie (2gb) so you have over 3000 movies?

Those would be low quality rips.

Don't listen to Fade2Scrub.

He is a resident troll. He believes that since he doesnt need a bigger drive than 1TB. The rest of the world should also not need drives bigger than 1TB.

2 GB blu-ray? A 2 GB '1080p' movie is going to be so incredibly bit-starved it will barely be distinguishable from 480/576p. I would expect any decent quality 1080p movie to be into the 10 GB range. Straight blu-ray rips are often in the 20-30 GB range.

I haven't even filled up 1/2 of my 1TB HDD.
#27HighwayPilotPosted 6/7/2014 1:41:04 AM
I would like to see some cheaper 6TB drives come around as well. I filled close to 3 TB's already.

TC, what do you do that requires 10TB for your minimum standards of "decent"?

Just my copies of Breaking Bad seasons are 30 to 50gb's each. Thankfully most of the movies I have on my drives are DVD quality as it takes too long to encode a blu ray into a smaller format. last time I did it I think it took like 7 hours. I also purchase a lot of stuff of Vudu.

3TB WD Greens are 110 bucks. Not a bad deal I think


Too bad those drives are only for storage purposes only.


Too bad all hard drives are for storage purposes.


WD Green drives are only meant to be used for idle data that is not getting accessed repeatedly, unlike its black or blue counterparts, that's what he meant. I had a green drive as my main drive once and it was terribly slow, they are really best served for backing up
