Even the touted durability of SSD is surely greater than a mechanical spinner but trust me.......something will show later, like "silicon rot" patent pending !
Yeah, I see what you are saying. We become pack rats. They want us to buy, buy, buy - and we buy, buy, buy. I must be sending an order off to Newegg every week. That stuff is so tempting.

Now I am looking at this Raptor to run on my latest toy (still en route with FedEx). The Raptor will go into my air cooled external USB3 enclosure and the internal disk will be replaced by a 90GB Vertex2 (which is already sitting on my desk). I am really curious how fast my Macrium images will run with that setup.

Did I need a new Laptop - or any new disks to add to the dozen? - of course not. It was just an addition to the 3 laptops I already have, not to mention the 2 desktops. But this one has a backlit keyboard and nice specs ( I also ordered the full HD display). Hopefully that will help with my poor eyesight - there is always an excuse for new gear.

Just installed the Vertex 2 120GB...I am speechless!! If I were you I would not buy any new things, save and buy the $3,000 1TB SSD

2400+ audio cd's in lossless and photos plus data. The audio is a monster and when I start collecting hi-res it's bound to quadruple or more ! Plus still have vinyl to the tune of 5000+ to convert.....yikes ! I'm such a whore.

I can't imagine that much music. Are your drives in Raid?

I sure hope you are not too late with the Silicon Rot. Sure hope it has not already been invented and is in my computer.

Talking about backups... once I crashed and lost everything, cost me a bunch of money. Now I have 4 externals about 3.5TB worth and always use 3 different backup programs. I keep backups on at least 2 externals and on my other desktop. I backup user files and email by hand once a week and keep them on 2 externals and my other desktop. I won't be caught with my pants down again. I guess you could say I wear both a belt and suspenders. I seriously doubt there is a bigger backup extremist than me.

Wow...I still don't understand the concept of silicon rot?

I am not sure I would have a use for a 1TB SSD. I have acres of disk space that are empty. But the conversion of my vinyls and hundres of cassettes is still awaiting action. I am just too lazy to do it - plus all my vinyls are in Germany where I am only during the summer.

My humor is rather dry ! My back up plan is unfortunately to have dual redundancy.

Can someone explain the different forms of RAID?
