post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
First is this worth the money?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822165287
6TB
USB 3.0


i need to store a lot of media, personal data, and documents.
my current storage is almost FULL in just a WEEK, total storage i got now is around 1.4 TB.

is there any better, cheaper, better performance alternative?
USB 3.0, bigger storage and cheaper?

should i just get a en closer and buy HDD for it? is that a good idea?

I really don't know.
please help.

Thanks in advance

What if you bought 2 of these instead? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136876 It will save you a couple hundred bucks.

for that price i think it is a little high
i would get two western digital 3tb still usb 3.0 for $300 instead of 600 but then you will need 2 ports instead of 1

Good point, 3.0 could be up to 10x faster. Maybe try two/three of these? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822136748

You also have the option of the 3tb one, but it seems that that one have lots of bad reviews, which is always a no for me.
