Today marks another milestone in my long and expensive computer addiction. The local CompUSA is closing its doors for good, so today I added my first "Terrabyte Drive" to my network, bringing my total local online storage capacity up to around 4 Terrabytes. I picked it up on sale for $239 before tax. I can hardly believe it. A TERRABYTE for under $250. The enclosure alone is probably wirth $30-$50 (it's a nice aluminum enclosure).Technically the drive is not a true terrabyte drive since it's really just an USB2 enclosure from Iomega that houses two SATA drives in a JBOD configuration. Anyway, I probably should have waited and purchased a separate single-drive enclosure and a single 1TB drive which can be had from NewEgg for $250 as of today, but heck...this is a cheap terrabyte. My only real complaint is that is functions as a JBOD array instead of a RAID0 array, but at these prices, who cares!
