June Savings



Paid $50 this month for content, Franklin & Bash, Season 3 and Futurama, Season 10, so saved $96 over what I would have given DirecTV.


My cumulative savings are now at $674. Balance remaining on the DVR setup is $2057.


My average monthly savings for the past 6 months is $112 - if that remains the same then the DVR setup will be paid off in about 18 months. I suspect it'll take a little longer than that though as some of the "delayed release" series like Game of Thrones tend to cost a bit more than the content I've bought so far. The Drobo's also been slowly filling up (it's now 64% full), so I foresee an additional drive in the near future. Adding the 4th drive will double the Drobo's data capacity (don't forget I'm using Dual Disk Redundancy).

If you experiment with the capacity tool (5-bay with Dual Disk Redundancy) you'll see that for future expansion it'd be better for me to choose a larger drive for the 4th drive. If I fill all 5 slots with 3TB, then run out of room, I'd have to replace 3 drives before seeing additional data capacity.


Looks like the red series will be gaining 4TB in the 3rd quarter and 5TB in the 4th. I think I can hold out for one of those.
