      I put a 140mm case fan in front of my modem and router to keep the airflow up (they're in a cube shelf) and now I always think my computer is on when it's not.

        Fan noise can be very soothing, especially for sleeping. My PC is on 24/7, and it helps not only getting to sleep, but also drowning out other noises.

            You actually think you'll be able to download stuff later? They're locking everything down. You won't even be allowed on any cloudflare site if you have the wrong software running. You better have a LAN that has no internet access with everything you need for life.

    *clears throat and puts on a brash tone*

    Okay, listen up folks. The hard drives, the HDDs, they're still tremendous, alright? Probably the best storage technology, some very smart people are telling me. You look at these cloud companies, they're all using HDDs for their big beautiful data centers. Because they're cheap and they work great!

    The fake news media and the tech elite, they want you to think SSDs are the only way to go. But I know storage tech better than anyone, okay? HDDs may be old technology but we're making them better and better. Spinning platters, reading heads, the whole thing is being renovated, you wouldn't believe it.

    And let me tell you, the SSD guys, they're ripping everyone off with their prices. For home storage, small businesses, you don't need those fancy solid state drives. Get the hard drives, made right here in America, and you're gonna save a fortune, a total fortune.

    SSDs are being pushed by the radical left and their agenda. But real Americans, smart Americans, they want hard drives. Tremendous hard drives at a tremendous price. That's why we're still using them in 2024 and, you know what, probably for a long time to come! HDDs are here to stay, folks, you can count on that!

      you should be able to purchase a 1TB 2.5" from ~2020 for around 13 bucks. same price for a new 120GB SSD
      people pull out brand new hdds from their new laptops and sell them because they keep falling for the ssd meme

    Despite making a lot of money by American standards, computer storage is still expensive for me. I could buy enough food for a couple of weeks with the money spent on a single drive. Why would I pay extra for a SSD over an HDD when load times don't matter for my data collection? If I put the HDD into a case with sufficient noise reduction, then I'll never notice it.

    what is the verdict?
    ssd seems to last more than hdds
    ssds do uses less energy
    hdds are cheaper/tb

    what are the ultimate best investment (cheaper in the long term)? do the less energy and bigger lifespan of ssds overweight the aditional cost?
    has someone made an research of this?

    because ssd's aren't cheap enough for me to have 20tb of storage with them yet
    on the subject can someone point me to a usb 3.0+ to ethernet adapter/server? I've got a very loud external that I'm using with a TV PC that I'd like to move elsewhere.

    Cheaper for more storage.
    I'll probably switch even my storage model to non moving parts in the next iteration though but right nowI have a 4 TiB spinning disk and a 500 GiB solid state.
    If the 4 TiB eventually fills up I'll probably get an SSD to replace it, or when it dies.

    my current point of view is that hdds are better for backups because they dont need to be constantly eletric charged and are cheaper/tb and with that you dont care about energy costs because they will not be turned on constantly.
    ssds are best for all other things

    Put your OS on a M.2 NVMe drive. If your mobo doesn't support M.2, either look into getting a pcie 2 nvme m.2 adapter or get a new mobo. But for my NAS and hypervisor server, I still use HDD because of $/TB is much much more cost effective.

    Because most of what I store doesn't benefit from flash. What does is stored on flash. A movie's going to play at the same speed whether it's being read from an HDD or an SSD. And for any amount of money I spend on SSD space I could get even more space by going for HDDs
