For what it's worth, I've been very impressed with reliability of the 2TB and 1.5TB drives I've bought. I have two Glyph 2TB in the studio, set up to mirror each other. 2+ years and still going strong, knock wood. The cheapo fan on the enclosure has gone bad on one of them, and Cortland NY-based Glyph sent me several spares. I have buss-powered USB3 drives from WD and Seagate, all of which work great. And my networked RAID has a pair of 2TB WD Red drives in it, running 24-7 for almost 2 years now, knock wood. I haven't tried any drives larger than 2TB so far. -- Tom Fine ----- Original Message ----- From: "Lou Judson" <[log in to unmask]> To: <[log in to unmask]> Sent: Wednesday, January 13, 2016 8:19 PM Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] SSD for your whole A/V library? Hah! That’ll save some storage costs… NOT! Makes me think about the ever increasing sizes of hard drives - the larger capacity they are, the smaller the actual disc real estate per byte. this is approaching the old spy movie microdot! :-) All the secrets of the free world, in a thing so small you cannot see it! <L> Lou Judson Intuitive Audio 415-883-2689 On Jan 13, 2016, at 4:44 PM, Randy Lane <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > Most of us could start storing all of our music, video, and photos on a > single 2.5 in SSD this year.
