Re: Hard Drive Deals

Umm, what other reason is there to buy a bluray drive except to play commercial bluray discs?

Given the reasonable size, I would use them for data storage. I would back up my photo library.

Optical media is so last year. a buck each, for one time use is quite expensive. I'd rather purchase a mechanical drive (1.5tb for $69 for example)then store anything on optical any more.

For off site, optical is better. My in laws are not going to want to hold onto a hard drive, but a couple of discs, sure.

The irony of common sense, it is not that common.
I cannot deny anything I did not say.
A kitten dies every time someone uses "then" and "than" incorrectly.
I mock people who give their children odd spelling of names.
