Bragging Time Part 2: Who has the most total storage space in their HTPC?

I recently saw Brent's bragging time post (thanks for the inspiration Brent) and thought it would be interesting to do something similar for storage to see how much total storage space everyone has and what storage devices are used. I am selfishly also interested to see how people are using Network Attached Storage as this is something I want to pursue rather than hooking up storage directly to any one PC.

I currently have 3 hard drives for a total of 1.5TB:
  • 1x 500GB internal SATA for TV Recording
  • 1x 500GB external USB 2.0 (IDE drive in external enclosure) for music, videos, and pictures
  • 1x 500GB external USB 2.0 (IDE drive in external enclosure) solely used for backup purposes

Is anyone using network attached storage? If so, what products are you using? I'd ideally like something that can accept up to 4 SATA drives and that can output via Ethernet (maybe gigabit) or even USB 2.0/eSATA.

4 x 1TB
7 x 500GB
1 x 160GB os and backup/install drive (primary and extended partitiions).

although all but 2 of the 1TB drives are import library drives.

Also all are individual drives although the 7 500GB are connected to a HighPoint raid controller but I am not using it in its raid capacity - 7 individual drives.

5x1TB
8x500GB

Plus a system disk, but that doesn't count... So 9 TB online, but I have 2 RAID5 arrays, it's only 7.5 TB available for programming.

Current I have 4.5 TB in use, mostly SageTV recordings, but also ripped DVD's and FLAC ripped CD's, pics, home movies, etc..

Remember in the R5000-HD thread I mentioned that if you get one of those, you'll soon be worrying about how to store all that HD? I wasn't kidding.
