Fuck those things. Those things are nothing but trouble and carbage.
I will disagree on this. I have three 1TB drives set up as a LVM for my media server for the last three years. I have no performance issues nor do I see any reallocated sectors or read errors.

AMD FX processors are fine for gaming, especially the 8350. Many games take advantage of the high core count now, especially ones like Battlefield 4 and Crysis 3. You'll see only a minor difference in framerate from an i5 (it might even improve the framerate depending on the game). Other games that are very single threaded like Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft won't like the AMD processor as much. It'll still do fine, but you'll be limited more by your processor in those games.
FX also excels in video encoding and archiving; it's comparable to an i7 in those respects. If you plan on serious production work like 3D editing or photoshop, Intel processors are a better investment.
In any case, if you plan on switching to Intel, don’t go with an i7. It's marginal improvements for gaming for a lot of money. If you want hyperthreading on a 4 core processor, look into the Xeon 1230 v3. It is basically a multiplier locked i7 without an integrated GPU for only a bit more than a i5.
No they aren't comparable to an i5. AMD had to overclock the damn things to even make them remotely competitive and they are still shit. Overclock your i5 and it's not even equal. The new Kaveri APU's are finally at their normal clock rates, and they are barely keeping up with the overclocked Richland APU's. Fact of the mater is AMD's bulldozer line is junk and you get more performance from Intel.
I would maybe go with an AMD processor if they had a steamroller FX chip. Though it looks like the FX line is done and that's a shame since Steamroller might have made them relevant.
Yes, but the CCTV footage traffic cam snapshots etc. aren't being made public on Facebook, Vine and who knows what else either. We kind of put a blind faith into the local/state gov to not do that sort of thing. Not so much with this kind of thing.
CCTV winds up public all the time. How many times have you seen TV shows showing people doing stupid things recorded on security cameras? Hell, I'm willing to bet there is a bunch of that on reddit and imgur now too.
