Why do people own 10 different drives?

I see some of you people with like 10 drives? Why would you need so many burners? Do they break or weardown or something?

It would be very boring reviewing the same drive over and over again, hence the need for the 30 plus here. LOL

…because they can’t afford more than 10 drives? :bigsmile:

Each drive has its strengths and weaknesses, so having at least two drives is a good idea. Some of us consider this a hobby so we like to test and collect different drives.

Because they are freaks :slight_smile:

My signature says it all…

LOOOOL :bigsmile:

Agreed, that’s why I have more than one drive.

@Homeless2 - yer dead right :bigsmile:

As for wearing or breaking down…I’ve only retired 3 drives in 4 years, and only two of those were due to some kind of malfunction :wink:

Just 10!:stuck_out_tongue:
I have 15 on 1 computer.

Bob, I happen to have an external drive in my garage, would it work with my PC that already has two burners?

[QUOTE=durkinjt;2031377]Bob, I happen to have an external drive in my garage, would it work with my PC that already has two burners?[/QUOTE]Sure as long as you have an extra USB or firewire plug in on your case. I take it, it is a USB or firewire drive?
