I know audiophiles who don't compress their music by much, if at all. They swear they can tell the difference, i can't but, each to his/her own.
I could easily use 6Tb of storage and even more if i were to add redundancy. At the moment i must have at least 3Tb of stuff stored in multiple places with a couple of backups of my most essential data (>200gb) I would love to have 10 TB of storage including redundancy and everything i have stored on DVD/CD/USB could be transferred to one location. However i am a bit of a digital hoarder.
Edit - I have just looked at my ebook folder and i have close to 100gb in non audio books. But i have a ton of books that i use for teaching resources. Its a bit of a random of stuff i use for English (50gb of ESL books) if i were to actually start a real collection getting upto 1TB would not be too outlandish. I also, actully delete all my TV shows as i simpily no longer have the space.
At the end of the day, it's his money, he can spend it how he likes.
Some advice to the OP - If you are going for backup too, setup a raid system so you can get backup and use 6.5gb of your 10gb space.
