I'd rather stick with smaller drivers that are easier to backup. That way, you don't put all your eggs in one basket.
I keep all my important data on network attached storage with raid arrays. If I lose one drive, no problem. If I lose more than one, I start to cry. The terabyte drives on my computer are working space for me. I play with video a lot, so gigabytes have replaced megabytes. Of course, megabytes replaced kilobytes a while back. I can still remember my first 1 gigabyte drive! Woo Hoo! Now I find 500 megabytes a little cramped.
You do have a good point 01001010, most people don't really need all that space.
