What did this lad mean by this? If you don't use a console once a week, it's time to sell it. Hoarding is a serious mental condition.

Agreed. They're far too expensive for what they are, it's just not worth it. And also I'm not a fan of the fact that they're that ugly clear plastic that just looks like cheap shit. They should've made then in black clamshells like Genesis cases.

There's another brand on stoneagegamer that actually does that but the thing is it's even more expensive at $4 a box and is per system.

He’s pointing out both that it does not cost nearly 1,000 to setup an NAS with a lot of storage and that 1,000 isn’t a lot of money for something you’ll use frequently. Because it really isn’t. My budget mountain bike cost $1200. I don’t consider that a lot of money for what it is at all. My NAS cost probably around $500 total. That’s with 20tb of storage however. Only a fool would buy brand new or full price when setting it up.

The issue gets murkier when you get into /tv/ or /a/ territory and start streaming 4K/blu ray rips from the server. Even then, you can set up a hefty little box and slap it onto your switch. Having two ethernet ports and shit like that is only necessary if you're moving a lot of data very quickly.

He grabbed a random image and posted without knowing what it was. He then pulled the "u poor?" bullshit because, well, why not. Then he went into full damage control mode. Any other explanation is retarded white knighting or samefagging. Not sure which on you are but only a fool would buy second hand or cheap ass drives to store their shit on.

>> No.5939542

Not the hard drive you idiot, the NAS or drive bay itself. There’s no benefit to used hard drives
You’re absolutely right, I have SAB grabbing a fairy small amount of content and it burns through storage like crazy. Lately I’ve only been grabbing the really visual content like IT, Marvel stuff in 4K and leaving Tv shows and other movies at 720 or even SD. My library isn’t exactly massive but I’ve also had to lower the quality of my kids shows to save space.
