Yes, it is.  Way too much for a unit that you know is gonna fail sometime.  He was only testing.  I think he's got 3 or 4 TBs on it now.

HR44 is at 6TB and HR34 is at 4TB.   None of which do I mind losing.

Yes, that makes sense, I'm even thinking that 3 TB might be too much for my use given possible failure and/or non-use of all the space. But the cost per GB is just better the larger you go and it can always be used to store data in a computer situation. I'm going to roll with the Thermaltake for a few weeks and if no problems develop I'll likely just leave it as is. 

 

It's better to have too much than not enough.  Some users have reported system slowdowns with drive usage around 80%.

Yes, definitely, and that's good to know about the 80%, thanks!

I just hooked up a new HR44 with a 9TB Raid 5 array.  4x3Tb drives in a Cineraid 458 box.  So far it seems to be working OK although it hasn't been stress tested yet.

Oddly, they also run better with some content on them than they do when they're near empty.  Just an observation.
