Im fairly sure the total amount of porn on the internet far exceeds 312TB. You'll have to get way more drives.
It's not quite *all* the porn on the internet, but there's a certain tracker that apparently lists 1.1PB. But that includes multiple resolutions so I suspect their actual unique title count is quite a bit lower.
That's EASILY archivable by a few people over at /r/datahoarder

I look like a chump with a flash drive compared to some of those guys. I think the biggest guy is close to 4PB now so he could easily cover it.

Logged in to thank OP.

I bought one from BB with PM, which came to $201.13, taxes in (about $25 per TB).

My PS4 Pro was full. I can't speak to other consoles, but this external WD hard drive works well with the PS4 Pro. The way they designed the PS4, I was able to migrate my games from the console HD to this external drive, quite easily. I now have in excess of 6 TB of free space for gaming. Also, some suggest improved performance in loading time using an external drive, over console internal. Who knew? Not too shabby :)

Was OOS and not available from Amazon for a day or so. Then Newegg's Ebay store went OOS as well. Seems back in stock now for anyone else looking!
