    1 TB Drives

    I see that standalone USB 2 1 Terabyte drives are available for $170*. Is anyone using these, say for sample storage? This is very tempting to me.

    Personally, I'm waiting for caller IQ.

    As long as it's for back ups and not for performing with. I bought a smaller drive packed with sounds for Giga, and those dogs don't hunt. I only wanted the content anyway. But it does storage very well, especially since I would never use it.

    These will die a quick death very soon. Intel will be entering the storage arena with their own SSD's using their own chipsets also.

    Raptors and most HDD's will fall in price immediately.

    How much of the problem is NTFS vs FAT32? I notice that directory operations on a large NTFS volume with lots of files was a lot slower than with FAT32, even after I turned of 8.3 filename generation and "last access".
