I'm looking at buying some more space. I currently have 6 hard drives ranging from 80GB - 500GB glued together in an LVM. I just use them for long term storage (ISOs of CDs I don't want to bother with, Movies, Photos, etc.).
I'm looking at expanding. What should I buy? Will a "green" drive save me money in the long term? Should I buy
- An internal drive and connect over SATA
- An external drive
- An internal drive and an enclosure and connect over USB
- Something else?
I don't have any exact criteria, just drive speed is nice, as is longevity, as is price. I run them connected to a linux media PC / fileserver with 6 drives already in there. The best price / space seems to be 1.5TB, right? Just looking for recommendations. Thanks.
