No one needs 1TB! This is insane - the most you will ever need is less than half this amount. In 1967, the Apollo moon mission didn't need this, so we certainly don't. If you think you do (and you don't) then I would suggest your life is too taken up with material things and you need to seriously declutter. Just because you can do something does not justify doing it. How many songs, movies, games can you take in?

I work away from home for 4 months at a time. A large drive lets me takes loads of music, films and TV shows with me to keep me entertained. 1TB isn't that big really. Not when you think that a HD rip of a film is over 4GB.

I personally agree, however a 1080p rip can be 14Gb so it doesn't take that much. Then start taking photos in RAW

[sigh] What a load of rubbish, and a sweeping generalisation. I bought one of these to back up my extensive archive of home videos (going back 20 years). 1TB is enough... for now.

BTW: The drive has slow write speeds, and is fairly noisy, but is great value for money.

What drive capacity does your computer have? I personally consider 1tb to be a minimum requirement.
You lose 70gb to formatting and I would always leave 50-100gb of clean drive space.

I suppose that's what the guy says after breaking and entering, one bag is not really a lot, when they have a flat screen desktop and a couple of laptops. All it's worth is £500.
It the fault of those Chinese making so much of this cheap computer equipment for people to buy! Oh I miss the good old days when a video camera was worth £500, and all I needed was a one small bag.
#12
Great Drives. Nearly maxed my current one and its so much easier to back up to another drive than spend days burning to DVD.

Seriously considering ordering a couple at that price.

Lol and i guess this internet thing is also a load of rubbish, maybe you should have posted this from your Spectrum with 48k

For info i shoot everything in Raw on my camera and each file is 20mb I can pretty soon fill these.

I'm a photographer and only shoot RAW format files, this kind of memory can be used in a [Insert Pun] Snap!

You're clearly not a graphic designer then who deals with 1.5GB layered photoshop files. Neither are you a photographer as mentioned above who takes RAW images equalling around 20MB a file. Does that mean people like us don't have a life because we're busy working in these fun careers? Get a life yourself bozo and get a job! I think this is a very good deal.

Good point, some people can be so negative.

eh? Lose space to formatting???

Ummmm. No you don't. I suspect you are just getting confused by the way HDD space is calculated/displayed.

ie.

Manufacturers sell the drive based on 1GB=1000MB, 1MB=1000kb 1KB=1000bytes, etc.

Hard drives are formatted like this: 1GB=1024MB, 1MB=1024kb, 1KB=1024bytes, etc.

So you don't actually lose anything, it's just due to the notation used.

Not quite sure why you're reluctant to use up up to 100gb of the storage space you've paid for either but whatever?


Oh, and I have two of these currently hooked up to the media box in my living room. HD files are space hungry! Biggest one I have stored at the moment is around 40gb!!! oO

If you are a professional photographer then you work with RAW files and you may well need this much space!

1TB usb 2 --- not good, speed wise. I've got a 1.5TB on e-sata and that's ok, but put it on usb 2 and it's useless.
