I just ordered mine and decided to go this way since I'm out of power plug ins. Hopefully the 2TB does not fill up to fast

I guess it's pricey cause it's slim and doesn't require external power? I just picked up a 4TB my book for like $20 more.

Not having to deal with a power cord is worth the extra cost of a USB powered drive. Plus the USB powered drives are much smaller and easier to carry around. And you only need the one cable which provides power and transfers your data.

That's pretty much the everyday price.

I want the 4TB Backup Plus Fast (two drives packaged together in a Raid 0, USB powered). Unfortunately it costs $270 . I'll probably end up with something like the Slim, but I'll wait until my original drive is full.

It'd be pretty rad if the X1 had NAS support...it probably wouldn't be too hard to port the iSCSI initiator from win 8. Not exactly user friendly, but it would work.

I wonder if there's some sort of iscsi to USB 3.0 bridge out there?

I may splurge on the 4TB Backup Plus Fast anyway, just 'cause it's so cool . But there are other toys I want that I should save my pennies for (I lust for the Gibson LPM with Min-ETune ).

I was just looking at Twitch out of curiosity; I'm a little surprised to see that Fibbage allows for Twitch broadcasting. Since you use a web browser as the controller, and just need the room code, people can 7 people can basically play for free as long as someone broadcasts.
