While trying to improve my data storage, I got small hard drives, and a 2TB NAS. But was it enough? Oh, hell no!
Upped my storage
I was getting into digital media. Yea, I like music and other forms of entertainment. I wanted something that could handle a crap full of data. I picked up the following in October of 2013, it was a WD My Book Live Duo 8TB Personal Cloud storage, for $529.99. Yea it was a lot of money and my wife wasn’t too happy about it. But she got over it.
That was a lot of money for someone who wasn’t making much of it. I had a family to provide for and this wasn’t providing for them. Buying this was just providing for my selfish needs. Well, that is what I heard.
Granted it might have been, I was providing a service for the family to organize the following better:
- The data
- The music
- Easier to get to
- No more trying to find the CD
- TV Shows
- So we can have a digital library of things.
But that wasn’t good enough.
Did it hold up
This did hold up to my standards, it was getting a work out of holding all the data, well, primarily digital media files. I guess that is why I was buying smaller drives to keep my other files on since my media files were adding up.
I really enjoyed this drive. It was nice to have.
