I'm bored, that's why i made this poll. I'm always curious about peoples collections anyway.
I just counted mine, and i have exactly 248 at the moment. I voted 250-500, since i have an order of 5CD's that should arrive next week.
So... Answer the poll!

That was a tough one.  At first I was going to vote I don't like music.  Then I was going to vote 10,000 +.  Ultimately, I decided to go with the truth.  I have about 1300 CDs.  And it is ever-growing.  Sadly, I'm going to have to start resorting to downloading music instead in the near future.  I'm running out of room to put my CDs.  In fact, all I have in my refrigerator at the moment are CDs and beer.  Cry
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

And just because i'm a geek:

46% Prog in most forms (King Crimson, Genesis, Soft machine, Camel...)
23% Metal (Iron Maiden, Opeth, Death, Blind Guardian...)
21% Hard Rock/Heavy Prog/Prog Related (Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Rush, Led Zeppelin...)
8% Jazz & Jazz-rock/Fusion (Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Return to Forever)

I would say that my collection includes about:
 
55% Prog (not including prog-related and prog metal)
20% Classic rock (including prog-related stuff)
15% Metal (including prog metal)
8% New wave/80's stuff
2% Classical and jazz

Impressive!
But you should build a large CD Shelf like me instead of having them in several diffrent racks!

Doesn't it look neat?

I have between 3000 and 5000 CDs.  I have been downloading alot more CDs in recent years, but I still like to burn them to physical CDs.  I do seem to have CD and DVD storage units in just about every room of the house.

If we count only my CDs, it's somewhere between 400 and 450. Now that I'm moving to the US, our joint collection will number close to 1,000, possibly more.

I would have been in the 500's by now but I got rid of a lot of CD's moving to Missouri. In hindsight it was a mistake.

I'm up to 1140.  I have them stored in a couple of storage units that look like a chest of drawers, so they're all in one place and don't take up a whole lot of space.

I have around 120's CD's, but if I count the ones I often listen from my dad's big collection, then it would be 200:P

1000. At least that's the capacity of the "storage facility" ... soon I'll have to get rid of some of those albums in order to buy new ones.

probably around 500 something or more.  Although I've been trading in a lot of the ones I don't really listen to anymore.
