How good is magento at doing mass importing of products? Here is my challenge:

I have a store online currently with Yahoo! stores. I have 100000+ product catalog that is divided into Type of Product (Laptop,camcorder, cell phone) -> Category (Brand) -> Subcategory (Model) -> Accessories for that model.

I was considering installing Magento (or paying someone too) and creating a store for each Type of product. Each store would be on a different domain. I’d then need to mass load the products and all attributes via a spreadsheet. The product catalog is so big that we don’t do anything one or two at a time. We do all loads via spreadsheets.

Is this possible? What is the largest store to date that was built with Magento? Who has experience with doing this?
