Yeah. And most of their Quad drives are Greens with variations(eSATA, usb 3.0 etc) There's a 7200rpm version but I don't know how well those work.

Reds and blacks tend to be the staple if you like performance. I like WD Element Blacks.

Oh yeah. I have a WD black 1TB in my PC as my main drive. $90 before the HDD "crash", but now the 2TB variant was $150, whereas a 2TB WD Red was only $105.

It's 110 here.

I own the 3TB version of that, which I bought on black friday for $120 or so.

Those use 5400rpm green drives and are relatively slow:

Compared to the Seagate 3TB I returned for having heat issues:

And the Buffalo for comparison using that 1GB cache RAM and 7200RPM drive:

Ohai :3
Only 3 points...damn shame.


Hmm I might have to borrow some money from my mom...I really want to pre-order a DX50 before they are all sold out here in Germany :/
I really really hope to get at least 120€ from selling my J3. My good 'ol friend is worth at least a bazillion bucks but whatever :'(

post #87065 of 126890

Let us know how the DX50 goes for you if you end up getting it! I might be interested in that over the X3.

Or if all else fails, you could try My Book Essential 2TB that I've been using recently. No ss, but they are 7200rpm. No heat issues either.

LOL, I actually have that drive for my xbox/PS3 games. USB2 is way too slow for backing up two 1TB drives though...

post #87068 of 126890
The Essentials are USB3.0. Just did a search and you can get them for 120 on ebay

Oh right. That's the one you posted to above for Best Buy. I use that one for anime. Again, only 120MBps or so.

Alright some pictures as sorta promised.

 

For starters, forgot to post this.

Yup, thats coffee (well latte) and you can see it has quite the marketing... lol

 

 

Kinda NSFW (Click to show)

 

 

Just some of the crazy things you can do with this kind of mousepads w/ clear windows :D

Blotched out the whole body even though it isn't completely naked. Still, we got kids here. And it's too risque for Head-Fi rules.

 

Of course, did not keep that picture there. Pondering on what to put instead.

Remember that Ferrari in Akiba with SnK? (Click to show)

 

Well there's more to that.

 

 

 

 

A maid Porsche, SnK Ferrari, and Rozen Maiden Limousine.

From what I then understood, these cars belong to a maid cafe-slash-pharmacy.

Brilliant owner that had a pharmacy in Akiba decided to add a maid cafe and rake in extra profits. Notice all those license plates.

 

(P.S. by pharmacy, they sell medications, not entirely sure if they also carry prescription drugs. But they also sell drinks and etc, so kind of like a convenience store but generally a little cheaper)

 

 

Comiket stuff. (Click to show)

 

Yup. Those are all the doujinshi I brought back this time (and made my luggage overweight). Only the lower-right corner stuff are mostly bought in stores. And that signed board (non-original) was from store also as present for spending X amount.

 

JUST FOR THE RECORD, in all the stuff you see there, only 3 contain minor nudity (and are rough sketches at that).

 

This is my collection. Now I gotta add the stuff from the previous pic in here.

Looking back... damn, I spent way too much on this, I have soooo many.

 

 

 

Speaking of Neptune stuff, like I said. Land of lollies are totally Nintendoland.

As for the wall scroll, maybe after I iron it.

Got creased up like mad.

 

Sorry for the crappy and blurry pics.

Better if I don't take clean ones though, for the sake of leaving nothing too explicit (although I made sure everything shown more clearly would be against the rules of being too showy)

post #87072 of 126890

Holy crap, that's a glorious post Kalbee! I approve! :D

I can't believe I forgot what I just posted.... brainfart, apologies.

Was trying to stick to WD but if it's speed then others do it better. Try:

Fandom Gforce
Buffalo DriveStation Axis


Again, I didn't try the Fabtoms, so no idea how well they handle heat.
post #87074 of 126890

Hi people, it has been a while since I came here

 

busy with military commitments, and a reignited passion for speedcubing

 

Just cleared Seitokai no Ichizon yesterday, currently clearing Chunnibyou (though I am going back to camp in less than two hours)

 

Now I am wondering whether to finish the LN of Oreimo first or finish the anime first

No in both cases it means your brain is adjusting towards the image of neutrality.
Your brain just keeps adjusting until the headphones/speakers have a fairly neutral sound signature. All fidelity is lost as well like this, unless you actually look for it by e.g. comparing it to other devices.

It hardly even matters how good our headphones are, because we have the amazing ability of making them sound as we expect they should sound. This of course doesn't mean that heavy bass becomes not-so-heavy bass all of the sudden, but it simply means that we get used to it to the point of it sounding 'normal'.


Of course this is just based on personal experience primarily, and I unfortunately do not have any studies to back up my strong claims.

Why on earth would you want to try sleep deprivation?

über awesome with excellenté åcceñts with cool Greek ∆ symbols and temperatures in ˚ç √2 ≠ 2 ± 0.2

I wish I could do accents through the Mac way on Windows. As it is I'm stuck with US International, which has the crappy feature of having to press space bar after a quotation mark or apostrophe. As a result I'm switching back and forth between US and US International all the time. Also because US doesn't have the '€' sign.
