10TB is too much on one drive, the risk of catastrophic porn loss is too great.
That's why you get 3 ;)

Animes alone will fill up 500GB to 1TB if you watch many. Add the movies and series.

This card charges you 2.5% fee on FX transactions and then you get back 4% on the FX transaction. So about net 1.5%.

Some people just want a card where you don’t get charged any fee.
I understand but shouldn't you account for the net cost? If the card has the foreign fee of 10% but gives you 20%, would you not use it?

The white label drive inside should be a very FAST mechanical drive according to reviews from slickdeals:

Don't be fooled by the 5400rpm speed - these drives are FAST - I see 200+ MBps write compared to the 100 MBps I was seeing with the 5TB Seagate SMR drives

Indeed. I can vouch for this. I get up to 250MBps write with my white label drive in external enclosure. This drive literally craps all over all my other mechanical drives.


Helium filled!

How hot is the 16TB version for $170 USD?
I think that is hot. Comes to just over $300 CAD all in.

Isn't Rogers World Elite a much better choice? Of course, you have to have an income over $80,000
Nope, this being a prime example. Lets say this got cancelled. Rogers you would pay forex fees for the charge and the refund costing you a considerable amount of money. I prefer no forex.

Keep in mind the home trust visa is also 1% cash back.

Don't worry, they will be on CL and Kijiji, probably not at this price though.

Amazon doesn't charge you until the order is shipped

Rogers has 4% cash back... So isn't that a no brainer assuming the order does not get cancelled?
