Discussion in 'SSD and HDD storage' started by boodikon, May 15, 2015.
My first Hardrive was the GVP Impact II. The best hardrive you could get for the CBM Amiga 500. It had 48Mb of disk space and i had 2 Meg of fast ram expansion pack that was never ever used.
Cost a whopping £400 way back in 1991.
Playing Monkey Island 1 and 2 on here was worth it alone considering Monkey Island 2 came on 11 Floppys. Dragons Lair was another that benefitted.
8.4 gigs Maxtor Diamondmax in a 1998 or 99 vintage desktop custom built by a company in California called NuTrend. The system also had a Pentium III 450mhz CPU, An ATI Rage Fury 32mb video card, 64mb RAM, and a Soundblaster PCI 128 sound card. The MB was a Diamond Flower model. All top end or near top end stuff at the time. I never even filled that HDD half way.
It ran Windows 98SE.
2.5gb back in '95 or so.
Made me realize that now I have over 2.5tb(terabytes) of total internal storage. 1000 times more!
SSD 250gb Samsung 850EVO
SSD 240gb PNY CS1111
SSD 120gb Kingston v300
HDD 2000gb Toshiba DT01ACA200
This is my very first drive. Don't know why I'm still clinging on to it though
30mb in my Amiga 1200
An quantum Plus HardCard II XL 105MB 16bit ISA HDD card
next to an HP Envy 17" laptop
32GB 10k RPM Western Digital Raptor, I feel privileged lol
Think my first ever HDD was 40Mb on a Macintosh Classic II I had, with an external 20Mb.
1gig scsi-II seagate for an Amiga 2000
120 meg IDE western digital for my first pc build.
25MB WD with a P60 and a US Robotics 14.4Kbps modem (miss the sound effects to some degree).
I'm pretty sure it was 25 MB. On an IBM 486 SX with 2 MB RAM.
My friend had a 386 SX (IBM too) and our computer felt so "fast" in comparison...
Never had other computers before that one, we (our family) waited for quite some time before finally deciding to get a PC.
80gb im too young
Me the first HDD that I have ever used was one of them HDD on a card for the Tandy 1000 and it was a 40mb drive too and man that thing was expensive at the time. Then I used drives that went all over the capacity spectrum.
My first non hard drive storage units were the cassette and floppy drive add ins to the Commodore 64.
I think 30Megs, maybe 20 though. I still have an 160 in the bin I think.
I think my first hard drive was 10MB - but prior to that I had cassettes and 5¼ inch floppies without a hard drive.
The first machine I used in business had two floppy drives...pretty much it. Personal computer...first drive was a Western Digital 20 mb. Upgraded to a whopping 40 mb with Conner
500 MB. Was running windows 95.
