Terabyte storage for the desktop
Subject: Storage | March 20, 2007 - 01:30 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Hitachi has won the race to get terabyte storage to the desktop with their 7K1000. With 200 GB platters (as opposed to trying to get 250GB ones to work), the seek times are a little slower at 8.5 ms/14ms Silent. It doesn't slow it down too much, in fact it is pretty quick, but slower on the large files. Read on at AnandTech to see the future of large scale home storage.
"Hitachi Global Storage Technologies announced right before CES 2007 they would be shipping a new 1TB (1000.2GB) hard disk
drive in Q1 of this year at an extremely competitive price of $399 or just about 40 cents per GB of storage. We fully
expected Seagate to beat Hitachi in the race to single terabyte drive offerings based upon expectations after their 750GB
drive shipped last June. However, it now appears the Seagate 1TB drive will not ship until Q2 of this year leaving Hitachi
alone at the top of the storage capacity mountain for now."
