Thank you for all of your answers!
I think the problem we have is that it is not any normal type of computer, and the interface or the box itself will be very finicky. In my HT computer, (Win media Center 64/32) I have lost count of the TB I’m using. I have an Asus P6T Deluxe Ver 2 Mobo which has 6 built in Sata outlets. I now have 3 other drives that are full, and not even hooked up. I have the left cover off of the comp, and I just run the regular Sata wires out of the side. I was using older WD 5,400 rpm drives, then I got spoiled when I bought a Hitachi 2 TB 7,200. NOW when needed, I am buying the Seagate Barracuda 3000 drives. - Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001 - (For media center recording) They have 7,200 RPM, 3 TB, and are very fast for moving, say, 10 recorded TV shows around. My SS drive clocks in at about 200 MBS, and the Seagates clock in at about 160 MBS for actual file moving (at first.) One reason is that with the 3TB, they are only using THREE platters – just under a TB per platter. With the other drives, rarely, I would get a video stutter, which was playback only, while recording 3-4 shows and watching one. – Very demanding. With the Seagate, I NEVER get that anymore.
I’ll see if the 2TB versions are on the list. I hope my running on a bit will help people select drives for other things. For editing, I’m using VideReDo. It has a HUGE window to analyze what you are working on. It’s too bad that the DTV boxes do not have basic editing. So, as an example I have the entire Series of Criminal minds, now commercial free, and beautiful HD. The 1st 6 seasons, edited, take up 403 GB.
