    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    Where are you seeing this for that price? I see it as $160 on their website? Was it a sale or something going on then? Actually I kinda like the look of this external drive and may incorporate it into my desk build, just not sure if I have the room. I only designed it to have a normal HDD...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    Hmm this is interesting info! Knowing these are higher end drives and removable, this is probably the way I would go. Obviously you void the warranty, but I'd be more concerned with data loss than a drive replacement at that point, but it's a good thing to try and keep the cages in good shape...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    Ok I have a desk case and definitely want an internal HDD, so the EMAZ drives are out unfortunately. I'm narrowed it down to either a WD 6TB Black or Blue drive: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare?CompareItemList=234-000G-000W5%2C1Z4-0002-00MY8 What makes the WD Black drives so...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    I have a WD 2TB from probably 4 years ago that has been serving me well, it's just almost filled up. I don't need the WD purple and I don't think I need to pay the premium for the Red either. I'll see what deal I can find on a Blue or Black WD. How do you feel the $150 Seagate I linked to...

    Which 8TB HDD for media storage?

    So I'm about to burst out of my current 2TB HDD for all of my media storage. I am looking to upgrade to a 8TB HDD to store all of my various media on. Which one do you guys suggest? I Found this Seagate for $150: https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16822183793 But then this 8TB Seagate that looks...

    M.2 SSDs - do they have FDE yet?

    Looking at Samsungs website there isn't much difference between the 970 Pro & Evo these days. It's almost worth just saving the money and going with the Evo. I currently have two Pro 550s (I think) I see that AES 256 is now a feature on the 970's, but are they supported and available for use...

    M.2 SSDs - do they have FDE yet?

    So I want to move from SSDs for my OS to M.2 SSDs but only if they have FDE. Do they feature this yet? Also my M.2 slot is under my video card on my Asrock Extreme 4 - do these have issues with overheating? The video card currently has an aircooler on it, but I am getting ready to add a water...

    I want to host all of my video files securely so my editor can easily access them - how?

    Hmm, shit I'm not familiar with any of that. I'm going to have to do some serious research.

    I want to host all of my video files securely so my editor can easily access them - how?

    So I have a 2tb HDD that I store a lot of video content on that my video editors can easily, but securely access. Instead of uploading to various things like google drive, I think hosting them on my computer for the editors to access will be easier for everyone. But what is the best & most...

    Dual video cards are almost identical, but not quite - is it a problem?

    Ok so I have 2 video cards, I thought they were both Asus Nvidia G-Force 9800GT cards and they look almost identical except for a some resistors etc. They have the exact same model #, different serial #'s though obviously. Is this going to be a compatability problem when running them together...
