As a guy just getting into this game, I tend to agree with this inclination.
I already find myself using a lot of discretion as to what I'm ripping. As I said in another thread, I won't be caught digitally hoarding movies like I did with music. If you're not going to watch it, where's the value? One hour and 30 some gigs to have Fantastic Four around? Ummmm, prolly not, lol. Thankfully 95% of my buys have been much more disciplined.
And that's good because I DO watch many movies time and time again. 30 TBs worth? No way. I figure 10-12 TBs should set me up for LONG while.
But, like so many aspects of AV, I realize it's a numbers game for some. Whatever helps you sleep at night I guess.
