    Ahaha made my day ~ 3 TB of pr0n and the fact that your didn't change the HDD label.

    Hey, I don't have any pr0n, though I'm pretty sure my boyfriend does. :D

  11. hehe, yeah I know, I've got a few on it; I just mainly use the 3TB drive. The difference is hard to notice, both drives load programs quite fast.

    256GB M4 in my Desktop
    1TB NAS for storage
    128GB SSD laying around doing nowt

    Future plans include a 2nd 256GB for RAID 0 next year, bringing my system up to 512GB (really don't need more than that on my comp) build a HTPC which is where my 128GB SSD will probably end up and building my own NAS to put all my DVDs, Blu Rays, Music, Photos, Home Videos, Backups on etc for me and the gf, will probably go with a few 2TB drives hopefully 6TB will be enough. Not sure how easy it is to expand a RAID array after its been built, might just go with 5 2TB for 10TB.

    The Hitachi 1TBs were pre-flood ones so they're the fast non dying ones :p
    Surprisingly they do 150/115mb~ read/write sequential on SATA2.

    Couple months from now my new builds will be completed, part of which includes a local storage server with 10TB+ of capacity.

    EDIT: BC Win XP Pro doesn't have XP on it anymore, it's been turned into a game hard drive.
