Personally, i'm considering saving up a couple hundred bucks and buying one of those sexy 2TB WD Green drives. If I got one of those, it might rust up from the mass Jizz that would ensue. That 2TB drive would actually suit you as well--it would save you money because of it's energy savings (not a noticeable amount, but still--we gotta do our part for the environment :P) as well as come at a cheaper cost. Mind you, it wouldn't be the fastest drive on the market, but for storage purposes it's quite the beast :)

It makes the 500 WD Black I bought a year ago (to which I drooled over) look like a child's toy in comparison... lol.

1TB is cool too, though. Have fun with that sucker :)
