I need more external storage to store recently converted vinyl records to mp3.
Not sure if it's cheaper to buy a few USB Flash Drives for storage or an external hard drive?
Thought of buying from Novatech as they are close by.
Any brands to stay clear of?

Think this really should have been posted in the Helproom

Eggs and Baskets spring to mind when you consider all on one external drive.
Back them all up to DVD aswell you can get a lot of songs on a DVD in MP3 format.

Flash drives are only good for a certain number of read write cycles

I don't find flash drives very reliable at all - nor DVDRW.

Much better with and external hard drive.
