I'm putting together a HTPC for my father. He wants to be able to come to my house and grab like 20- 30 Movies etc. Take them to his house to watch them on his HTPC. After viewing he then wants to delete them and bring the HDD back to load more movies on. Rinse Repeat.
I am using these on the my computer and was thinking about putting this in his HTPC. Problem is that I also need a Blu-ray in the HTPC case. The cases with two 5.25 external drive bays jump significantly in price. More then i'm willing to pay
I'm also thinking of possibly using just a HDD dock using esata. However I would really like to keep this thing as one unit without a whole bunch of other crap attached to it.
Any other solutions or thoughts on what I could do, even a outside the box suggestion. I need to figure this out he's chomping at the bits for this machine.
