I'm pretty surprised that I managed to make it through most of the artificial price inflation with just 1 spare 2TB drive (on top of what I had before). I thought I'd run out of space for sure and have to end up paying a ridiculous 2-3x an HDDs previous cost when at the moment there was no shortage. I still have a few hundred gigs to spare so I'll be waiting for prices to go down again before I buy anything.

Last I checked prices were still towards double normal, they only went down to normal on Black Friday, and I had no car at the time so I couldn't even pick up anything (no I'm not about to spend 4 hours waiting and on buses for a trip that's about 50 minutes by car).

Err.. About 17TB unformatted. 2TB free now, so will have to do something about it over the holidays. Problem is I'm out of SATA ports again, so I'll have to get another controller too.

I noticed this as well.


I grabbed me a 1TB Buffalo external from Tesco about 2 months ago for 55 (Has a WD Green drive in it)

At the time a 1TB internal drive was around 80

USB 2.0 drives even used to be cheaper than bare SATA drives. I bought a bunch I pried open and took the drives out of. I now have a lot of SATA -> USB 2.0 converters and AC adapters left over from this.

It's really nothing too fancy or complicated. Mostly older hardware (Core 2, P35 chipset etc), an extra controller, an old, huge huge slightly modified maxi-tower from way back with room for boatloads of drives. Running Windows Home Server 2011 and FlexRaid software raid (Raid-Z, 3TB parity and storage pooling). Streams to my Popcorn Hour media player in the living room with a full graphical library system (ala XBMC). It's positioned in a storage room in my apartment and I control it with Radmin. I easily get over 100 megabytes a sec over Gb Lan with this. A cheaper and much more flexible alternative to a NAS.

Easy peasy. Put that old hardware to use!

A pic of the thing can be seen here: http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/j...a/CIMG5809.jpg

It ain't pretty, but I never see it anyway.

Only 3.7TB left on my 18.1TB RAID6 volume. Could do with the price of 4TB drives plummeting and replacing mine.

Considering you shouldn't put Green drives in NAS units because they tend to try and and spin down when they shouldn't.

Most NAS companies like QNAP don't even recommend some of the WD drives let alone Green drives.

Not all, I had a very noisy WD Black 2.5", which sounds a lot more than a very quiet WD Green EARS/EARX.
