    Hey,
    I was looking for a good priced, possibly used, external HDD to keep media and possibly do some backups on. I've come across a 1st Gen Time Capsule 1TB for £50 which seems like a steal to me. I've already got wireless at home, and I'm moving to a studio flat soon (I presume my provider will give me a new router) so I'm not terrible bothered about using it for that, but that fact that its a 1TB 7200RPM NAS of sorts its pretty good! As long as its in good working order, is there any reason I shouldn't go for it?
    Cheers

    I'd question the age of the drive. With it being that old, I'd worry that the drive would have a higher chance of failure.

    I'm so stupid... I genuinely couldn't find my own thread. Hence why I reposted. Stupid phone app. Cheers!
