Which HDD?
hello,

I just ordered a C200. Now im looking for HDD's

I would like lots of space and i dont want a bluray or something yet.

I would like to use both places (2.5" and 3.5")

Which HDD's would you advise, considering lots of space, heat, noise, price??

RE: Which HDD?
The 3.5" drives of choice, most people will tell you, are the Samsung EcoGreen and WD Caviar Green series'. Cool, quiet, and the 1.5TB drives are pretty cheap - particularly the Samsungs.

RE: Which HDD?
some discussion in this thread. The wd green and samsung ecogreen drives are well liked for the A series and should be just as happy in the C series.

as for 2.5'', not a clue, big is expensive....

I'd be more tempted to go with an external USB solution for more than 1.5TB as you will get far more for your money!

In my C-200 i'm going to have a small 2.5'' drive for apps, and then I have a 4.5TB DAS hooked up via USB.

Storage Options
C-200, A-110, DAS400, Denon 1909 via HDMI, TXP42X10, KEF Q3 and Q9C surround

RE: Which HDD?
Thank you for your reply !

Is it possible to add content by LAN/internet/FTP to the USB drive?

SMB yes, FTP no.

So the PCH shares it's USB drives over the network and you can map them as a network drive in windows, and access them the same as the internal drives.
