Default Re: What?!?!?! 1TB hard drive is here!!

Id rather just get 2 500Gb drives, works out cheaper and its the same amount of storage. The only advantage i can see in having 1 Tb drive is, if you are short of space in your case.

I think it has been said before but also if one drive fails you loose less data
