I have two 8TB external drives, they're slowly starting to fill out and I'm down to ~1TB of space. I've ripped a significant portion of my physical Movie & TV collection. I also have a large iTunes collection of ~3 TB that I back up by putting on each of the 8TB drives. It's nice to have access to hundreds of shows and movies in a small portable device I can hook up to my computer and laptop. Would moving up to a planned Network be my next step? Should I pick up another (maybe higher capacity) external drive instead? I'm looking at network storage because it consolidates. 2 drives already feels like a bit much. There are only so many USB connections to use when keyboard and mouse are USB, phone cable is USB, headphones is USB. It can also be a bit of a pain to plug and unplug as needed because my desktop computer is up against a wall and desk. Reason I'm looking into it now is we have Black Friday/Cyber Monday coming up in November and then Boxing Day in December. It's an opportunity to get stuff on sale.
