    If i'm interested in some documentaries and movies in HD format but the budget goes sky high. A 320GB hdd holds barelly 20 HD 1080ip movies, and the blu-ray burners are out of the question.
    I wanna build my self a DiY projector 1280x1024 (720p HD) and would be nice HD format movies instead of normal dvd's.
    Do you have HD stuff on your hdd's?

    Hard drives are hardly expensive these days. Just buy a load, get an IDE to USB connector and store the drives in your desk drawer. I have a couple of 160gb drives in my desk drawer that are keeping files I don't need on my PC all the time but can't bear to delete (old Thundercat episodes for instance).

    true true ... i like to have around 150 movies and 100 documentaries. that's ... aaa 10 TB = 20 500GB hdd's = 220$ x 20 = 4400$ in let's say half a year... still much

    Doesn't really seem worth it given the marginal boost in picture quality you'll get. Perhaps be more selective in what you keep and wait until Blu-Ray (or the other one) becomes an affordable option.

    Floppy disks must be cheap these days, split the file and you'll be laughing.

    i don't know if it's much use saying this, but look for HDi stuff. it's HD but compressed quite a bit
