    You can get everything worth having from the internet onto a floppy disk.

    xD I always make typos.. sometimes I'll actually edit

    that's true cut out a lot of things you'll never use again.. editing video takes a bit though

    10 TB seems to be a lot now, but in a few years time it might be a minimum for laptops and stuff. Few years ago I didnt even think about having more than one 160 GB hdd, now my 2.5" external hdd (Toshiba as well) is 360 GB

    Sounds very impressive. Just be sure to buy 2 and use one as a backup! That'd be a LOT of data to lose!

    My god, just think what the rebuild times would be on an low end raid 5 controller :eeek:

    I've currently filled 2.61TB out of 3.63TB and I'm adding around 300GB/year so with any luck these drives will be out just in time for my next upgrade :D
