DISADVANTAGES Entertainment files of movies, music, video and games all take up significant amounts of space on a computer hard drive. While many users find their available space shrinking rapidly when building a computerized entertainment database for personal use. Speed, Processing and Performance: While most computers can easily run music files because they are basically sound files, entertainment files that combine video and sound require incredibly powerful computer processors. A smooth, highly- detailed display is not possible unless the computer is equipped with a very advanced video card, has at least 2 gigabytes of temporary memory, and has enough hard drive space to store the given file to be played.
COTD. Computer Games: A long-standing problem with computer entertainment games tends to be that their suggested specifications never seem to match each and every computer. As a result, many a user has to make additional tweaks to his computer to get it to play a computer game as intended. This may involve adjusting frame rate, changing out the video card, reducing game detail to perform better, and other similar changes.
COTD Downloading Issues: To be able to enjoy new options of entertainment reasonably well, youll need an Internet connection with broadband capability. Given the size of entertainment files, smaller or weaker Internet accounts are simply too slow to download and watch at the same time. A broadband account costs money and those who want to download lots of files will have to pay a premium for an upgraded account or they will quickly exceed their monthly download quota.
COTD. Downloading More Than Entertainment: Opening up a computer to significant entertainment use also opens you to a higher risk of getting a program virus, malware, undesired adware . Much of the risk comes from the source of the entertainment files not maintaining clean data. Unless users proactively make sure that whom they get entertainment files from over the Internet protects such files, they are at high risk of getting an unwelcome surprise in their computer when downloading a movie, game or music. This risk increases significantly when users choose to download from pirate sites or "free" providers.
