    That's fantastic and I love the white glove treatment ! I'm staring at 12 active hard drives and two flash cards on one of 5 rigs but if I would add all of mine up if it's not close to 25 it's only off one. Don't even get me started with sd card or micro sd cards and then old school CF's. Then moving into pen drives..........it's a sickness ! So glad I'm in good company, I understand that I can put all this in the clouds but I'm not ready yet !

    Omigosh! I can't even imagine how much time and money it would take to store all that in the cloud!

    The "white gloves" are antistatic gloves. I live in a dry climate and have vinyl floors so static is a huge problem.

    Other than three otherwise would be retired USB 2.0 sticks that I keep my Macrium Reflect recovery software on and another one I keep in my purse with my phone book and Internet Favorites on it, all my USB 3.0 sticks (ten) are only used for temporary storage or transfer of data; they stay empty the rest of the time. Three are in my desk, three in my notebook bag, and four are in my purse.

    The same for the SD cards I have. I have four 8GB Class 10 Kingstons, one in my big camera, one in my smaller camera, and two in my purse. I also have some old Class 4 SanDisks I keep in my purse if I want to transfer some data to someone and there is a chance I may not see the card again. I also have an old 32GB Class 4 SanDisk I keep in my purse for temporary photo backup when on the road (I also temporarily backup photos, when on the road, to my Amazon Cloud Drive and to my notebook, which also gets backed up to one of the HDDs in my notebook bag).

    Continuing on the hard drive scene, here is my other main system. Same case, motherboard, 6 spinners, FX 8350 @3.7Ghz without doing anything, 16gb GSkill 1600 Mhz ram and a silent Radeon HD 6770 with another Soundblaster X Fi card. Whats on all those drives I here you ask, back ups of what is on the other systems, music, photos and virtual machines? Scores not so good as there is no SSD but this one is my back up and email and general purpose rig.

    I picked up a new monitor locally last night, a Dell U2713HM 2560x1440 resolution. They are going for like £460 on Amazon UK new. This one is 9 months old, immaculate and cost me £275.
    It is very nice.
    Having been in the Monitor and TV repair industry since I left school one of the things people underestimate the importance of is the picture quality of the display. We spend a lot of hours in front of them and the better quality the image the more enjoyable the experience. Great Monitor Paul.

    Very nice "back up" rig Tony.

    While I don't collect drives, I currently have 6 in use in 3 rigs and 14 USB flash sticks, 4 of them 64GB.

    Cheers Tony, indeed I agree and am very pleased to finally have a top notch screen.
