For other reasons, I was just at costco and bought a 500Gig solid state for $150. It is about the size of a postcard ( only square ).

It is USB though, so loading that much may take a while.

100GB M-Discs are dual layer BlueRay media correct (not readable on a DVD
player)? I actually have a BDXL BR burner. I also have the M-Disc capable
DVD burners but never tried that media on them.

I'd be interested in hearing about opinions of the 100GB "M-disc".  I've
heard that they have decent longevity, and, the "low" capacity ones are
interchangeable with conventional DVDs.
