I totally Agree , I also wish some one could make a 1TB Opitcal Disk somewhere ... it is by far the best backup media available after tape backups.LOL. Speak only for yourself, please.
I still use all three.
I also have a HH/HL PCIe SSD (NVMe 1.0), in one of my systems.
- Optical for backups (BD-R), ripping CDs, and reading old disks I burned years ago.
- 3.5" HDDs for RAID
- 2.5" SSDs because they're still the most cost-effective and fast enough for most purposes.
