Seagate first with 1.5TB hard drives

Quote:
One terabyte hard drives still cramping your decadent data storage lifestyle? No more tears. Seagate is rolling out 1.5TB HDDs this August.

Seagate's 1.5TB Barracuda 7200.11 will use four platters to cram the scale-tipping new raw capacity into an eleventh generation of its flagship drive. The storage firm points out its the single largest hard drive capacity bump in the last 50 years.

As the name suggests, the HDD spins at 7,200RPM. The 3Gb/s SATA I interface has a sustained data rate of up to 120MB/s.

The disks are also sold in 1TB, 750GB, 640GB, 500GB, 320GB, and 160GB varieties with cache options of 32MB and 16MB.

Excellent. Seagate drives are great. At least, none of them have died on me.

I can think of 1,000,000 ways, but betas is the only one that's important :-D

Once you start storing away those HD movies you'll find that 1.5TB is NOTHING. I know, I got over 3TB worth in HD movies, and those are stored in a smaller size than original HD-DVD/Bluray format. Not to mention that I also store all my original DVD:s on HD as well. The time is coming where ppl actually store their stuff on disk instead of using cheap plastic discs, and when that day comes people will need all the space they can get. How exciting is it to dig up that scratched up disc somewhere when all you need is just to find the remote, press a button and get presented with a menu of all your music, video, photos and even games... That's how I run it now using Vista Media Center. I'll never go back to cheapsh!t plastic storage.

A good use of 1.5TB drives would be to run the BA server on them.

1.5TB of space really is nothing, I have around 300gigs of TV in standard def alone and as for HD....it's just silly, I can't afford to store it! :D

Yeah, the space is impressive anyway.

But I expected a bigger leap over the 1 TB model (anyway half of it, 500 GB, it's good).

What's incredible is the new storage capabilites that an average user needs today.

I remember back on the late 90s dreaming on 20 GB HD thinking that would be enough for the rest of our lifes.


Haha when Windows Millenium came I thought it consumed insane HD space: almost a CD! (5XX MB if I'm not wrong). Look now, a single game could eat 12 GB. 10 programs like that and you've more than 10% of a Tera Disk. Today anything is enough.
