    I'm finely finished. 2 years ago I started using Handbreak to copy all my DVD and VHS movies onto my mac. How many movies do you have?

    So your 1400+ movies only takes up half a TB? Are they all ripped at 320x240? I've got 500+ movies that takes up about 2TB including about 80 or so movies in 720p and 1080p, then another 40+ full TV series on another 2TB.

    Wow, I only have about 150 movies, but they take up about 500GB of space. About 50 of them are 720p.

    I think HB 0.9.4 improved the video encoding quality, so you might want to start over. just kidding :)

    Can't post a picture of it now because I'm away from my computer, but my iTunes movies is 600GB and TV shows are 800GB. Stored on a NAS though, not my computer.

    500GB for 1,400 movies? The quality must be pretty sub par. That's about 350MB per movie, for SD I would go with at least 700MB upwards towards 1500MB per movie.
    I have 150 movies and they take up 1TB but they are all HD.

    I can't even imagine 1,400 movies I would want to watch, like it shows that's 103 days straight of movies, who has time for that?

    i download several series episodes weekly. Around 10. The data adds up pretty quickly especially if you like 720p like me. Still there is no reason to have all this data in your laptop. That's what external drives are for.

    106 movies 136.20 GB
    2107 TV Shows 1,207.25 GB TV shows are HD if they were available when purchased.

    All of them purchased in iTunes. Combined with my music, it fills a 2TB drive plus .5TB of another. Unfortunately, it's way too much to backup anymore so I don't worry about it. My music is stored on two iPods also so at least that is backed up.

    I have around 80 movies at 300mb-1.5gb each. Some I just ripped for iPod so I don't need anything higher than 320x240. They even look great on the Touch so I've no worries about any future devices. 1400 does seem like a lot but hey if its for archival purposes... I've scanned in thousands of old photographs over the years. I'm not going to sit through and look at them but they're just there for backup/archives (on many, many drives!).

    Wow congrats i wish i can do the same but i am to lazy.

    I have one question, did you use the slot-loading drive in the iMac to rip all these DVD's or did you use an external drive?
