Over at our Ziff Davis sibling site Extreme Tech, Loyd Case has done an interesting review of a new terabyte hard drive. That’s right, it’s a regular hard drive that holds one terabyte (or 1,000 gigabytes if you prefer to look at it that way.
And I thought I was cool for recently picking up that 500Gbyte drive for my home system.
The drive is the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 and it has a 7,200 RPM rotational speed. Pricing for the drive is $399. Quite a bit more than what I paid for my 500Gbyte drive but still not too bad for being on the cutting edge of hard drive capacity.
For all the nitty gritty details on the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 terabyte hard drive check out the Extreme Tech review here.
