What do you set your Maximum Attachment File Size to?

I noticed the default is 1024KB but that seems kind of small. A lot of cell phone pics are bigger than that. What's a good practical limit? The upload_max_filesize is set to 2MB in php.ini by default. I'm thinking that seems more reasonable but I may go even higher than that. Disk space is pretty cheap. What do you find is a good limit that will allow most images and only block the very large ones?

Mine is set at 10mb, but as I have all images resized on upload they tend to be around 500k most of the time.

As you say disk space is cheap!

300MB, but that's because i needed for things other than images.

I also have $config['maxImageResizePixelCount'] = 70000000;
