This is an external hard disk with hard disk inside.
TB Hdd for me, I dont bother getting the enclosure. I just swap in and out of my CPU.
I'm using the 1TB basic by Maxtor. Price quite reasonable. Samsung one aren't that bad also.

Wait for comex or something. PC show was selling 1.5 TB 3.5" external for like $137 or something.
For storage, is it better to have a NAS that runs at RAID5 at least? Any brand that you guys are using, Buffalo or Thecus?
The minimum one should have is:
1. a set of your pictures in your computer.
2. a backup of this set of pictures in an external hard disk drive.
NAS is an over-kill unless you are running a business.
An external hard disk plus a good anti-virus will generally be adequate. Some people grossly under estimate what virus can do to their pictures.
I learn it the very painful, sayang way, twice!!
My advice, save up and get a Raid 5 (R0, I dun feel safe) before it is too late.... the least expected can happen, Mr Murphy is always behind you, waiting to strike!
Now me kiasu to the extend of Raid 5 backup on Raid 5 (of course with my other stuff!, video extra)
If going for RAID 5, I think cheapest I can see is the Thecus 3200pro. Buffalo Terastation live is $999
