Man, you could partition the crap out of that thing and still have huge drives. .40 Cents a GB is quite cheap.

So when is a drive big enough?

I have to question what the drive reliability is going to be like - losing 1 Tb of data can't be fun

That was my first thought as well

TBH, When we need terrabyte drives in the home, that's when passion turns into obsession. But i guess for some people HDD space is like sex: Some can live with a little but others can't get enough!
