    I guess the moral of the story is, use what works for you.
    I couldn't agree with you more McGyver.....

    A very expensive pure NAS unit. Nothing wrong with that if that is what you need. I`m sticking with the more generalised solution


    Oh take that back, isn`t even network enabled. Just a really expensive external drive cage. Not sure why dropping $300 on that would make sense but it is as always down to what you need

    It still depends on personal values.

    I'll just cram drives into my case and act as the household NAS until I can justify buying a real one (or retired one from work with new drives?)
    Most semi-recent halfway decent boards have 6+ sata connections. Using a PCI or m.2 drive frees up more sata slots for storage drives.
    Don't even have to put them in the case, just ignore that thing hanging over there...
    And people wonder why this forum died. Sad.
    Hint, it wasn't the file sharing

    At least it's USB 3.0 My first hard drive enclosure was USB 2.0, IDE, limited to 137 GB... and the power brick was huge!

    Luckily files were pretty small back when IDE was used. Plus I didn't get high-speed Internet access in my area until 2004. SATA and 1TB HDDs were common then. No bluray, web-dls, 720p/1080p HDTV. I used an IOMEGA Zip Drive for external storage.

    Wow!!!, you are making me feel so young all over again buddy

    I think those were the days when you downloaded a movie and it was split "A" and "B" so you could burn to fit CD's because DVD's were too expensive to buy let alone a DVD ROM player to boot. Then you splurged, and got even more excited when you could put 4 movies plus on one DVD. What was that format before AVI and you had to go searching everywhere to find a DVD player that would play the disks??.
    Then you were so pissed off on how many disks you wasted because you couldn't find the other half of the movie, and you ended up with umpteen half disks of it!!!!..
    Then you are talking the days when a bootleg copy of a movie came out, be it cam or whatever, and you could barley see the dam picture, but yet you were so excited to watch..Now in the future you hope and pray you don't have a HDD failure, because you will loose 3tb of movies, tv shows, or music, and have to download all the shit back again!!!!. The only nice thing is it will take you less than a day to get everything back, in the old day you would just say fuck it and move on, and you had a 20gb hard drive for storage that cost you more than building a whole computer today!! (Ok a little less for the HDD), and the days when you felt like pistol pete because you were paying and arm and a leg for Giganews!!, and how many times you went over the limit of headers and downloads, in a month!!!, and had to pay again!!!..
    But i can say without a lie MacGyver, i never used a Zip Drive for storage of movies or downloads?? But having the jam ups because you cued too many headers to view in the binary groups i don't miss either....
    Oh the good ol days buddy

    PS. But i will say i still have my mint special DVD burner to burn Xbox and Wii games

    And i just threw this out from my basement at the dump the other day, if you can believe that, other shit i dropped off at Best Buy to recycle..

    I still have my 19" Sony Trinitron CRT (flat screen). It's in a box somewhere.

    DivX was used before XviD, but I believe you are referring to VCD (.vcd and sometimes .bin and .cue). VCDs for movies were very popular. Many movies came in two 700MB files. I still have a couple of old DVD players ( 5 disc carousel) that will play VCD and DivX/XviD.

    I still have a couple Plextor CD and DVD burners that can copy protected CDs/DVDs (along with BlindWrite or similar app).

    I never used Zip disks for storage. Mainly to transfer files from school computer to home computer and vise versa.

    Files tend to be all the way from the start to the end. But I get your point in shit keeps getting bigger and yet is it getting better? Also had a zip drive.

    I like the monitor, my amiga 14" ones look about as good as that I lie they went many years ago along with my A2000 and a g-lock.... there is something to retro google
