I was running out of space due to my appreciation for old movies and Bit-Torrent. I went to Costco to Pick up a drive… I got hit with a ton of stuff I never heard before and I was afraid to buy… Also a great price difference between two companies threw me for a loop…
First is something I never saw before. It’s what I think is a Net/Internet Hard Drive that is compatible to with BIT TORRENT. I think it’s called Link Station by Buffalo.
Storage Space 1TB Price almost 6KNT
Is it any good. I would like it to appear on my home network as a regular HD that I could drag and drop from. I’m not particular how it appears outside my home, as long as it is easy to use.
Second is a regular USB External Hard Drive by Buffalo. 2TB for around 3.5K
The third option was an External 1TB HD by Transend. That was almost the same price as the Buffalo.
I trust Transend. I had a Buffalo Wireless Router that worked well for almost three years… but now it’s starting to fail. Is Transend worth the cost, or is Buffalo created an el-cheapo product. .
I was thinking for just getting an internal hard drive but my wife and I use our laptops a lot and share data. In this case, I guess the external drive or net drive would be the most practical.
Which option would you choose. Can you give me the pros and cons. I’m leaning to the Buffalo External 2TB drive if it is of decent quality If not… I’m leaning toward the transend. If you can sell me on the net drive, I’d go with that… I trust you guys… Please help.
(MY MOST FAMOUS STUPID QUOTE IN COLLEGE) Who needs all this Hard Drive Stuff, 714K and two floppy drives are enough for me. said about my Tandy 1400LT laptop…
