    Am I the only one with several 2-4TB drives in a single computer? Can't add a pic, because I won't actually be home for a few more weeks.

    EDIT: :ninja: guess not :P

    100TB? Pics or it's a lie.

    Wow, you're worse than me.

    Meanwhile, my set up. It's on my Netbook.

    Those "Network Locations" (Ubicación de red), are FTP locations for connecting my Vita, smartphone and tablets wirelessly so I can browse its contents without installing an FTP software.

    And yes, I don't download everything I see, at least not anymore. I like to keep it simple but useful, also I don't use icons (shortcuts) on my desktop, they're useless for me.

    First things first, an SD card makes for a poor primary memory. Far too unreliable, far worse than a SSD. Especially if you end up paging (somehow).

    Surprising amount of free space for me.

    Another one is IOPS. SD cards have awful values for this (influences random reads and writes, how fast data gets returned when there is a nice queue for it and to an extent general continuous speeds as well). The memory might be able to handle it but the little controller they stuff on them less so.

    I feel like noting that Western Digital/SanDisk unveiled their 400GB microSD card the other day.
