    No offense, but why would you want to pay $150 for 32gb of storage? Hopefully for some secret spy espionage, and not USB loading. I seriously recommend getting a Seagate Freeagent Go 500gb, which is only around $120, and works perfectly with all Wii applications.

    Two reasons.

    1)I have the money to spend.

    2)I still buy most of my Wii games. I just need a easy and convenient way to play the few Wii games I want to play but don't want to buy.

    Also a Flash Drive is a lot easier to put up when I'm not using it and I won't have to look at a HDD sitting next to my Wii even when I am using it. [​IMG]

    Having the money and wasting it are two different things. Aesthetics is absolutely no reason to spend $150 on 32GB of storage when you could purchase a 1TB drive for $50 less. You realize the immensely vast size difference, right?

    1TB = 1,000GB = $100~
    ........ 32GB = $150

    A nice-looking external hard drive does nothing to detract from the Wii's appearance. I have an ugly black USB enclosure drive next to the Wii and even it looks fantastic there. Besides, think of the benefits of having that amount of storage. You could create a partition of any size to use with your computer, and you'd have a nearly unlimited amount of space to rip purchased games onto for fast access. Well over 200 games could be stored, instead of seven or less. I'd just hate to see someone get ripped off like you're lining up to.

    I'd personally like to have one of those myself....not for USB Loading however. But, I can wait another four months for it to be lowered to fifty bucks [​IMG]

    What do you want me to say? I hope you're not trying to get a rise out of me, because I really don't care how you waste your money. The Seagate Freeagent Go is the smallest HDD on the market, and you could always place it behind your system, or out of plain view, if it's that big of a deal to you. I was actually trying to help you by recommending a better value. You didn't prove a point to me, but succeeded in your public display of arrogance. Great Job!

    Looks like I won't have to spend any money. Because I just found out that the CPU I ordered online come with a free 16GB flash drive. [​IMG]
