    Default Storage for all my data.

    I am looking for a fail safe solution for all my data (files, videos, movies, HDD Images + Backups).
    I am tired of having dozens of CDs and DVDs with everything on them.
    I want to store everything on hard drives but if a hard drive fails i want the data to be recoverable or on another hard drive.
    I am thinking of getting a DROBO, if one hard drive fails just replace it with a good one and it's rebuilt.
    Another option i am considering is getting a QNAP and setting up RAID 5 on it.
    I want the data which is store to be accessed quick if i want, this is why i would prefer a hatrd drive solution rather than CDs and DVDs.
    Any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Billy

    You could get a raid controller and not a USB or firewire setup..... Those Drobos are expensive and do not have drives included. The read and write speeds are not stellar on them.

    If you your machine has USB3, you could do it real cheap with a couple of 3 TB Seagate GoFlex external drives and just mirror them.

    I wouldn't want to work off one as my system drive, but I've been very pleased with the transfer speed over USB3 using mine as shared drives for media, and backup on my home network.

    Take your time looking around, there's a lot of different company's offering storage solutions. As you know some are better than others, so make sure you check out as many reviews as possible before you buy.

    They are real cool but I stick to saving money and going raid1-5 on your motherboard....... Much cheaper.... I am sure your motherboard has raid.
