Good deal. I bought two of them from CompUSA when they were around $129 each.
Heard some bad things about them, but I am not experiencing any troubles.

That was with the old firmware, this is the latest model with updated firmware. They were bricking, but the problem was fixed.

HD movies. They are about 10-15GB each, depending on the quality. That's only 100-150 HD movies in 1.5TB. Also games, nowadays are coming in 3 DVD sets. Take FEAR2, it's 12GB itself.

I don't trust optical media to archive my valuable videos. I've seen too many of them go bad.

I don't trust HD's that much as i have had 3 laptop drives fail within a 2 year time frame, 2 samsungs, 1 WD.... then i have had about (3) 3.5" drives fail over a 10 year time frame.... i have Cd's that have been kept out of sunlight, and stored properly that still work after 10 + years.


In the end if its important enough, i make a hard copy, copy to cd, copy to DVD and make a HD back up.

Oh and i'm way behind the power curve on the newest HD movies and games. i didn't realize they were so damn big.

I've had a 1.5tb raid array here at home for over a year and use it to store backups of 2 kids pcs, mine, and the wifes laptop. I also have my share of music, software, and etc on there and its only about 1/2 full.

I'm running 4 x 500gb drives in RAID 5 so even if one fails I have no data loss

Tis true, i don't have that many blu-ray rips but i'm nearing 250gb on my hd movies.
I got my main array running 4x750GB drives in a raid 5 which I use to store all my media. I will upgrade it to a 4x1tb drive raid 5 array (not gaining much space, but am clearing a array to use for backups.). Just got to save up to get another adaptec 3405 (or 3805) to throw these 1tb drives onto.
