    MOZ : I looked at the freeNAS sollution.. lot easier than I had imagined.. and had all the parts right here
    Problem was the power consumption... and also that I keep losing HDDs to dust/heat/ god knows what else kills my HDDs in India.

    But at 22K.. I am with you.. way too expensive for everything it does.
    Not 22K even.. 22k + price of HDDs !! :(

    My problem was with power consumption.. my electric bills are killing me.. and heat.. had to leave ACs on in computer room.. cuz 2 puters were downloading all night .
    So.. simple solution.. up and running in mins... does everything.
    (I had assumed these only were Network Storage...

    Now.. if only dbg would co-operate and gimme a nicey gigabyte/dual channel/router/MODEM ..
    And you'd sell me some of you used 2+ TB drives.. I'd be all set :)

    MOZ : Can me copy?
    But where?? I certainly don't have 7+ TB of free space :cry:
    I got 4TB of new space from JD, but they have 3+ TB of stuff in there that I gotta sort thru :)

    Yes, you can but the space is none of my concern.

    You can selectively copy as well.

    Must resist desire to purchase NAS and increase storage capacity.

    Wait till I get my 16 Mbps connection. Then we'll talk.

    Just a normal software engineer. To be frank, if I was not in a rut in past, I would have done these trips a way back.

    20130629_140428_r.jpg Sound Quality so far has been great, be it movies, music or games. There is a lot of detail in the sound and excellent sound stage. Lacks a bit in bass, but I am not a basshead so not that big an issue for me.

    Burning them in now.

    HiFiNage.

    They are almost out of stock, couldn't get the white ones and restocking will happen after a year or so. Even these were imported almost a year back by the distributor.

    Just got 2 of these after i broke my small HP mouse in a fit of rage

    HP comfort mouse X 1500.JPG

    Speedy delivery by FlipKart, got these in under 48 hours. Really smooth and comfortable, can't really complain for 620 Rs for 2. 1000 dpi resolution, the top plastic is surely a fingerprint magnet.

    Lol, lets just say when I get mad, I tend to break whatever is in my hand. This time around it was the poor mouse.
