What do you mean "OR" ?
Actually, I use a 1.5TB drive in my PC-based DVR currently and it it usually is < 100 GB free. I'll be adding a 2TB external drive soon, mainly for offloading the internal drive's shows that I have yet to watch, but I keep meaning to, etc., and of course miscellaneous backups.
And with bicycle racing season full on, Universal Sports and Versus to be showing daily, hours-long coverage from the tours of California (one week), Italy, France and Spain (three weeks each) I need to free up a ton of space, especially for May when the races in California and Italy will be overlapping.
If only those channels would put out HD content in clear QAM. As it is, the former is SD digital (with a pretty low bit rate unfortunately) and the latter is SD analog for me on TWC.
