Quote from: Magyarorszag on November 22, 2018, 06:47:16 AMfor example, i got a 5(!) tb 7200rpm hdd for $110 earlier this month, and last week i got a 1tb ssd for $130 i can't imagine i'll ever use as much as 5 whole terabytes of hdd space, but i did need to upgrade from my old filled-to-capacity mechanical drive and at that price why not

Sometimes I look at the datahoarder reddit to keep an eye on deals and I don't even hold a candle to their crazy setups with like 12x 10TB drives.
