Hmm.. I guess saying this in the original post didn't deter you from commenting. Streaming works, but I did not want the dependence on a computer (or NAS) just to run emulators. With your logic I guess I could have just left the original drive in and run everything from DVD.

Not to mention that 1.5TB hard drives are still stoopid money at the moment. You can get a 750GB for less than 1/4 the price.
They're getting cheaper. 2TB HDs have been seen as low as $179 on special locally, 1TB are under $100 regularly. I paid a bit more for the 5200RPM HD because of noise and heat concerns. Either way I think I'll be happy to have ~600 full games and just about every emulator set I have online in a single box.
