Replace A Dvd Library With A Laptop Computer

No matter how they are stored, movies can take a lot of space. True fans often have collections that include several hundred movies. All of those DVDs as well as the older VHS movies can fill an entire closet. Today, you can have access to all those movies as well as some of the new options by choosing a laptop computer to store all the movies that have been downloaded onto the external drive.

While movies on tape or DVD can take up a lot of physical space, they can also take up a lot of hard drive space on your computer. It may not take a lot of movies before you find your computer is slowing down due to a lack of memory. You can solve this problem by purchasing the external hard drive. The drive connects to your computer using a USB port that allows a rapid exchange of movies as you are watching them.

External hard drives are available that can store large amounts of data, including movies. For about one hundred dollars, you can get a one to one and one half terabyte external drive. This drive is able to store hundreds of movies in the space of one or two DVD cases.

The new technology available on many of today's TVs allows the user to attach the external hard drive to the television with a USB port and play back movies directly from the drive. There is no need to use your laptop as a movie player. The TV uses its internal processor to retrieve the movie from the drive and play it back for you.

You will find several subscription services that will allow you to download movies to your computer for saving on the hard drive. Sometimes, you are able to download the movie before it is available for purchase in DVD format. In addition, there are several free services that allow you to download older movies to your computer. Television shows can also be downloaded from the services. A good service may allow you to stop paying a cable bill.

The greatest hindrance to downloading movies is a slow internet speed. If you have a fast speed, movies can be downloaded in a quarter to half an hour. Slower downloads may take even longer.

With an online movie service, you may find many older movies that are no longer available on DVD. This is an excellent way to re-watch those older favorites.

You will also find that using the online movie download service to download movies to your laptop is a much more economical way to watch your favorite movies than purchasing them in DVD format.
