Unless they become unplayable due to disc rot as being discussed here in an other forum.
But that happens to one, maybe two discs. If a hard drive crashes, my entire collection may be gone.

I don't think this will replace the disc technology for a very long time. I remember when I was young and any time I got a new LP or 45 the fist thing I did was copy them to cassette. I think the kids are doing the same thing here. They know their toys can't hold a candle to the quality of sound in a good system. That isn't what they are after. They want the ability to see/hear it wherever they are. When they grow older they will want the higher quality of a home system and the best source possible.

These new mobile technologies are built for portability and convenience and there is a lot to be said for that. Even I was impressed with the Walkman when it came out and I think these are just the latest versions of that type of product. The new generations, like we did, will come around.

Just like the iPhone. The MP3 players are great toys, and easy to take (all) your music where ever you go, but when I am at home 9 out of 10 times I listen to CDs and not the MP3.

I am sure people don't want to buy 2Terrabyte because I want 1Terrabyte movies...

that looks like Mac's answer to Windows Media Center.  Even the software looks very similar.  I too have it, and never use it.  And large scale hard drive based systems are indeed VERY expensive.  And still, if it crashes, you are SOL.  See Here

This runs in the $20,000-$25,000 range for the 1,230 DVD (9 Terrabyte) version.

I am not an advocate of online, just stating I see it coming in the future. We are here but only a short time. Our kids and kids kids will only know this format. By then it should be available to the masses at a cost that is affordable. It's why I am glad I was born in 61 instead of having to be a young person starting out today.
