These numbers would work for me.
*crick* Hmm, looking at it backwards really does make the space saved seem bloody expensive. The effective efficiency all comes down to which is more important a factor, space or cost. (I might add players/zones, but that makes the issues much murkier and just got me wondering how the 1-drive-per-player limit really works if the M500 can drive a MDV, so I'll leave it at space/price.)

Call me crazy -- you will not be the first or the last -- but it would be aesthetically preferable to have an MDV that matches the form factor and look of the other K gear...

I will know next week which direction I will be going in but do appreciate all the advice and input that has been shared to date...

If I buy the MDV I will install it in the back of the equipment rack, so it is sight-unseen. If I buy the IDV it will be installed conventionally.

Agreed...the other issue though is "rack efficiency" / "rack management" and it it more efficient to use 5U of rack space for 320 Blu-rays as opposed to 100 Blu-rays...

I am getting very close to ordering my system with just a few details left to iron out and have a question...

If I load a blu-ray, CD or DVD into the system is it then possible, at a later date, to erase/remove the disk from the system and recover the disk space...

Thanks so much...

Joel

Yes, you can delete any title in the future. The only thing you cannot do is delete one disc from a set, like disc 4 of CSI season 2, or the supplemental disc for a film. One would have to delete the entire title then reload the disc/s that you want from it. I generally don't load the extra disc from a set for this reason.

I just did this Joel with the DVD duplicates of BRs I own.

What happens is the titles get moved to the trash. They are not actually deleted at this moment, but rather still are on the hard drives but not listed in your movie list. As the system needs the space the movies in the trash will be deleted. This way if you accidentally move a movie to the trash you can recover it. With a title in the trash, the system will report the additional free space.
