Poll: How much digital storage do you have?

Poll: How much digital storage do you have?

When the 1-terabyte HDD broke the Php5,000-barrier ($100-barrier), I thought this will be the year when most PCs will be on the terabyte range. So I thought, let’s put it as a poll.

How much digital storage do you have at home?



As an example, I got 2 x 1TB HDD, 1 x 500GB, 1 x 640GB and 2 x 320GB at home for a total of 3.78TB. That does not include the portable storage I have on laptop/netbooks which adds up to another 570GB.

I’ve posted a poll on the sidebar with the following choices:

How much HDD storage do you have?

  • less than 250GB
  • under 1 terabyte
  • between 1 – 2 TB
  • more than 2TB
  • more than 5TB

You can leave a comment below or submit your answers in the poll.

  1. I have 1~2TB total if I combine them all (ie. including the HDD serving as secondary backup [unplugged]).

  2. I have 1~2TB total if I combine them all (ie. including the HDD serving as secondary backup [unplugged]).

    Later this year or early next year, I’m going to buy 2x HDD at the TB capacity for daily use :p hehe.

  3. I have 5 TB hardisk and i already have 450 movies stored in that dish

  5. Spidey says:

    I have 1 x 160g, 1 x 250g, 2 x 80g, a few thumb drives with 512mb, 1g, 2g and 4g.

  6. Alvin says:

    between 1 – 2TB as of the moment. 2X160GB + 1X320GB for my PC at home, 160GB for my net book, 320GB for external storage, and another 160GB in another portable external storage.

    @Yuga, anything on the 1TB HDD cons? well, high capacity HDD is good but don’t you think it is risky to start with? given that PC crashes and other hardware/software problems that add to the predicament of PC users?

    I’ve just upgraded one of my towers from an 8TB array to a 16TB array (I’m sure Axis Global was very happy as I use Western Digital).

    I moved the 8TB array to another tower, which used to have a 4TB array, which I am not sure what to do with ATM, maybe Tipid. I’ve run out of raid cards and no distributor locally for them.

    So I’ve got 2 arrays totaling 24TBs. Then probably another 6 or 7TBs in non raided drives or laying around

    I’ve been trying to get one of the massive HD rack enclosure makers to find a distributor here but to no avail. If racks weren’t so damned expensive here, I’d move from towers to a rack system.

    I moved to massive storage when it was clear that GMA VAT+stupidity+greed means Bluray discs would be almost 2x as expensive locally as the rest of the world. Then Bluray format sucks with the DRM and region issues. Also, it was clear that HD would never come to Philippines where I could use a HTPC DVR with it, or ever (2 HD channels Sky?! And they suck :()

    So instead of spending money on buying Bluray equipment, discs and a cable bill, I spent it on bandwidth and hard drives.

    BTW, I like this site very much, glad I found it.

    My current macbook pro was jacked to 500GB. I have a 160gb external Maxtor drive. I have a couple of 1GB and 4GB USB thumb drives.

    It would be sweet to upgrade to an 1TB external hard drive especially for all the videos I foresee editing.

    Less than 250GB currently leads the poll. I guess having a high capacity HD isn’t anyone’s priority just yet.

    i am afraid to use Samsung cause that is my first Hard drive 3 years ago. 80 GB Samsung IDE Hard drive… After it fails I try to carry it and make it fixed by a professional Intel employee. By they said my files cannot be recovered. How sad. Now It is laid in my Techie Gadget junk case and everytime I see it, I feel sad. coz all my pictures files and colleges projects laid on that stupid hard drive…
    the lesson is… Now I learn to Back up things important to me…

    890 GB Total

    To be honest hindi pa puno yun. Next time I need a Hard Disk I’ll take 2.5″ 500GB or 1TB

    1 x 8GB SD for my SLR
    1 x 4GB SD for my SLR
    1 x 8GB iPhone 3g
    1 x 80GB My trusty ol’ PC

    780GB? not much compared to the others. hehe

  47. I have a

    1x 1TB NAS Storage
    1x 1TB QuadCore PC
    1x 320GB old Intel P4 PC (now a media server)
    1x 320GB XPC (linux machine)

    The PHP5k is my gauge. Whenever a previously high priced high capacity HD gets down to 5k pesos, it’s considered cheap.

    Probably once I exhausted these storage, baka may available na 5TB at the 5k price range. That’s the time to buy again.

  48. GensanBoy says:
