terabyte store project


Disks are cheap enough now that we can have an affordable(*) personal terabyte sized store.

Other parts arrive separately, but these 250GB drives from western digital were a good deal at $96 each. However, I am now hearing that there’s a long standing WD firmware problem causing random writes to time out, and these cheap drives are “recertified”, i.e. returns, so I’m hoping these don’t have the bad firmware…

(*) as affordable as a 40MB winchester was a few years back…
