    30GB should be plenty. I probably watch over an hour of youtube a day (@480)during the commute to and from work, plus other browsing and I've yet to hit my 25GB quota in a month. Although I've come close a couple of times when forgetting to switch to WiFi once home.

    No, I bought two of them. I plan on shucking them to put them in a server when I have time.

    Be interesting to see what series the internal drive unit is - nowhere I saw on a quick search seems to know...

    All My Books, 6TB and below are white-labelled WD Blue drives. 8 & 10TB are white-labelled Reds. My Cloud units are all white-labelled Reds.

    I've bought and shucked 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10TB models over the last few years.

    Walnut bezel for the kitchen TV, which isn't a sentence I would have ever thought myself saying.

    Purchased as a bit of an experiment, passed with unexpectedly flying colours and now has a permanent place in the rack.

    'Kitchen TV' indeed. Probably needed to hack down half a forest to get enough timber for that. :happy:

    I don't think any trees were harmed in the fabrication of the bezel. It's so thin that I feel having wood veneer atop the frame that attaches to the TV wouldn't have been feasible. It's 100% convincing if it is indeed an imitation though, and it does feel more like wood than metal, and is also appropriately/correctly imperfect in places, so perhaps I'm wrong.

    EDIT: I'm wrong. Trees were harmed.

    Really needed it because with the new mouse mat from Glorious there is no room on my desk for the monitor stand anymore. Can't wait for my two Glorious Model O to arrive... one or two weeks now.

    Not quite. More like "less than 30 Euros". That means it's really bad, right?

    The newest music I (personally) own is Enya; most of what's been released since the mid-90's is of little - if any - interest to me.

    BTW, that album was released 1 June, this year.
