You guys should focus more on the transducers rather than cables, regenerators and that kind of audio voodoo.

Don't tell me what to do! :p

No it's actually much appreciated since I'm shopping for an external drive as we speak and I can't make up my mind.

 

I'm torn between external hard drive desktop (with ac adapter), portable external drive, external ssd and usb stick. Too much choices :basshead:

Just get the one with more capacity, and USB 3.0 preferable. Or the most practical/useful for you.

Probably not. It's just file storage after all.

As do I, and like I said, no noticeable difference from my internal HDD or SSD. I don't think you should worry too much about that...

Researching and worrying is all part of the fun. At least for me :tongue_smile:

To me is quite the opposite. I wish I was born with all the knowledge I'd ever need. Things would be much easier.

Sitting in a chair studying is boring. Living is good.

You can also consider an inexpensive NAS, as:

I use 6 drives similar to the above with several WIN PCs, all through IP without any installation or software.
