    WD15EADS thoughts?

    Looking to throw four more hard drives into my server, 2TB drives have not dropped enough in price and WD has produced 1.5TB drives at a good price. Any problems with these? I have the 1TB green drives and love them, was hoping to go all 2TB but 1.5TB times four should last me awhile I think.

    I never invested heavily into DVD, but am picking up blu-rays whenever I see a good sale. My one concern was, still is, getting these files to a portable device without taking up massive space. I have a server that stores them all, but that is terabytes of space, I want to be able to drop a...

    Silent 80mm case fans

    I just finished up a media server, used the Norco 4020, and the 4-5 80mm case fans are turbines. I need to find some silent fans that will allow this server to run 24/7 without anyone hearing, the only plus I found to the Norco stock fans, they push a very solid amount of air. Thanks.

    Archos 5 v. Cowon v. Other?

    Quick background, had an EDGE iPhone then a 3G iPhone then an AT&T Fuze. Giving up the iPhone was easy, but the media/internet was much more fluid on the iPhone. I enjoy Opera a lot more than Safari, but the UI in WinMo is a bit lacking at times. Been reading up on the Archos 5 and it looks...

    1.5TB or wait?

    I finally will be finishing up my media storage, loving the Norco case so far, and have been trying to decide on what hard drives to use.

    Either one better than the other? I currently have about 30 CDs on backed up on my computer in .WAV, but just got EAC to test FLAC.

    Google Chrome

    Real quick note, I am very close to uninstalling this and moving on. When I first got it, it was ok, I really liked the interface and felt it was a bit snappier.
