    110TB divided by 2TB works out to 55 2TB hard drives.

    You're really running at least 55 hard drives?

    Unfortunately, easily more than 55, . I've got 31 drives with my WHS, 22 drives with my first unRAID, 8 drives with my second unRAID, 4 drives with my INTEL NAS, 5 drives with my TIVo Desktop Server, 2 drives with my DLink NAS, plus a couple of Buffalo NAS drives.
    And that's just the Network Storage. I still have drives in other PCs, TiVos, etc. plus some unused in storage boxes and USB/eSATA enclosures. And this is after selling around forty five of my 1TB and smaller drives on eBAY while hard drives prices were high in early Winter.

    Sometimes I hate Amazon, when their prices jump up and down several times a week. This drive was $105 when I looked yesterday and today it's $110. Tomorrow it might be $104 or $111 or anywhere in between.

    But I do see the 3TB version of this drive is $150 which seems to be the best price per GB right now. I don't own any hard drives over 2TB in size.
