I wanted to (several years ago) put 4x250MB IDE's into my Quadra 840av (running off firewire bridges). I believe it was about 50 per MB at the time. I may still do it maybe with an NAS bridge, and 4TB of drive space... nah, that would be insane.

BTW, they just up'ed the ante...

From Dealnews.com:
