My 640GB hard drive is already past half way full. This is a hard drive I've had for like about a month or two.

If I decided to rip all my CDs and DVDs, it would take a nice chunk out of it, that's for sure.

Yeah and rip some blu ray movies on there too in HD. I just hope these drives don't have all the problems the seagate ones like mine did when they came out.

and besides, they'll make great media PC drives, which is why I wanted the TB's in the first place.

They've hit the egg:

Newegg.com - Western Digital WD20EADS 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

But still overpriced, so meh for now, I like my cheap 1.5TB with latest firmware.

...Stupid Newegg stock images for hard drives...apparently this drive is awesome enough to cram 2TB on a SINGLE PLATTER! Either that or Newegg can't get decent images for their thumbnails...
