I had some problems with my first storage drive but I have been using the current one — an OWC Mercury Elite-AL-Pro — since July 2009.

However, from the comments I find online, the Time Capsules are server grade drives, and I think they probably should have a longer life than data drives.

I would get one if I really understood how it all works. For example, do you really need an Airplane plus a Time Capsule? I have seen comments that you do not, in which case the TC seems less expensive, but I don’t quite see how it all goes together.

As you can see, I am very confused.
