I'm impressed that you have managed to fill a 500G drive several times in the last few months! In your case, obviously bigger is going to be better. I'll stand by my statement that a terabyte of capacity is like hitting an ant with a hammer for the average user though.However, hard drive prices are dropping continually, even in the few short months since I made that post. If you can afford it, then larger is always going to be better. I am a great fan of futureproofing.At the time of writing my last post, the user would have saved about AU$170 by setting up 4x300G hard drives instead of 4x500G.Now, the difference is more like AU$70, so obviously it may now be worth it, just from a futureproofing standpoint.I'll still maintain that the mirrored 600G array that the 300G drives provided is more than enough for the average user though, if they wanted to save the money.
