    I have a 60GB external(used to be in secondary computer which isn't in use at the moment) and a 250GB for my main computer. Not a lot of storage compared to most of you, but I don't have a lot of video stored on my computer, so really the space is for games, music and pictures, and it's enough for that task.

    80gb on my desktop rig, 20 free.
    30gb on my iPod, 15 free.

    May I ask, what do you people use >1TB for?!

    If I install every game I have, and even every game I want, and put all my music on my computer, I would still only be using I bet around 200gb.
    Even if I ripped all my DVD's, assuming 2gb a DVD (Just the main feature) we'd only be talking about 114gb (57 feature films).
    And hell, even if I ripped my 5 seasons of Buffy, season of Firefly, and 2 seasons of Meerkat Manor (Yeah, I know, don't ask) and assuming once again around 2gb a disk... It'd only be 300gb (22x5, 14, 12+13).
    Still only at 614gb.
    Let's add in my anime series. For sake of ease I'm going to assume they are all 26 episodes.
    676gb more.

    Bringing the total to 1,290gb.

    And that would be putting every thing I have on there at the same time. Which I probably wouldn't do.
    I think I would buy a 1TB drive just so I never have to by another one again.
    (Guess I'd buy two, so I could back up the first one, just in case.:rolleyes: )

    It's one of the laws of computing:

    There is no such thing as too much storage space

    Main Rig
    320gb + 500gb x2 = 1320gb

    external
    250gb x2 = 500gb

    old net rig
    40gb x2 + 200gb = 280gb

    1320 + 500 + 280 = 2.1tb
