router w/ torrent support

  • hello,
    is it okay to use SD card attached to a USB adapter or USB Flashdrives in downloading?
    concern lang ako sa wear due to read/write cycles doing Torrent downloads.
    Or recommended po talaga to use external harddrives?

    Thanks

    Base from my persona experience mas OK gumamit ng USB Flash drives or SD Card in downloading. Mabalis kase masira yung mga external hard drives since may moving na parts sya sa loob. Due to slow read and write when downloading files via torrent, mas bumababa yung life span ng hard drive. Yung USB and SD card kase flash memory kaya kahit mabagal yung read and write hindi sya mabilis masira.

    Na try ko sya personally kase nilagay ko dati sa router ko with transmission was a 1Tb WD external drive. One year lang ang tinagal nya sakin and eventually nasira agad. Nag click of death sya wherein nastuck yung needle nya due to slow read and write of files due to torrent download. Hope this helps.

    sa pagkakaalam ko mas mabilis masisisra ang flash drive or thumb drive kapag yun ang ginamit due to read and write, siguro bad experience lang yung sa 1tb kasi ako hard drive ang ginamit ko for two years though ang bumigay saakin is yung router

    I stand to be corrected
  • HDD breaking because of slow transfer rate? sa akin nga yung transfer rate ko minsan below 100kbps pa nga pero 4 years na buhay pa din.

    Pero sa flashdrive naman, ok naman gamitin ang flashdrive wag lang CDRKING model, dahil sisirain talaga yan agad agad. I use sandisk flash drive and it still works until now, bugbog to dati sa tomato firmware installed with entware + swap, ngayun naman ginagamit naman sya as openwrt drive. Nabili ko pa to past 2008 pa, mahal pa to dati nasa 1k+.

  • Thanks sa feedback.
    Currently using download master on Asus RT N13U.
    Now, nitetest ko using my 160GB external drive.
    Sana tumagal.
  • In terms of drive much better kapag external drive, don't use USB or Flash drive since mabagal ang read and write ng mga to.
