Now I know many will say it comes down to needs, or that I should just choose an alternative to TC, but let me explain first. I'm pretty set on a TC because I like the effortless backing up, especially wirelessly, I also need a new router, and I'm after a NAS device too. The TC offers all 3. I plan to use the Time Capsules internal drive for the automatic backing up, and NAS drive. I could probably, yes, buy another brand of router and use an external hard drive with it. I like the TC because it's all in one, and it looks nice. That's a feature to me. On a side note, having a TC with an internal hard drive is faster than a router with usb powered external hard drive. Internal drive > Usb drive. Plus, instead of having to power 2 devices, TC is technically one device. That out of the way, I have to make a choice between 2TB and 3TB. Right now, I'm after the 3TB. I have a lot of files, and the smaller the TC, the less far back the backups will go. Plus the less NAS storage I have. The problem is the price (sort of). I can afford the 3TB, but it's $520!!! (Australia price) or $319 for the 2TB. That's a $200 difference for only an extra TB. Theres another thread saying it's overpriced and whatnot, but half the posts are flaming at each other over the "Server grade hard drive" debate. I know they aren't, so I'm not going there. Is it really worth paying $520 for a 3TB time capsule? It's an awful lot of money. $319 to me, seems very reasonable. You get a router, 2TB NAS & backup device that looks great, and works great. I paid $400 alone for a premium router 2 years ago. It was top of the line and guess what? No hard drive was in it! So $319 to me, seems excellent. And yes, I've just debated with myself but I'm going back and forth and can't really decide. It's a choice between the obvious and the WANT! Apple has me by the balls. The 3TB is evermore so tempting. Basically, yes, I would utilise the 3TB fully, but is it worth it? I'm looking for some more reasons to justify the price, or maybe it's just an outrageous price but are there any more reasons why it might be more worth it to pay that much? Damnit Apple.
