Let's face it, it's great to be a consumer. What we really need is a hard drive trade in program. Some may say we need a gadget anonymous program.
Anyway, for you hard drive filling maniacs, Hitachi just announced their 1.0 Terabyte 3.5" Deskstar offering. Now you might be thinking that's going to cost an arm and two legs, but apparently the suggested retail price is $399.
We'll see what the street price is when they hit the channel.
See the Hitachi Global Storage Systems site for the drive specs and details.
I really wish more emphasis would be placed on 2.5" SATA and PATA drives. I could use a 500GB 2.5" SATA drive for my laptop. Actually, two would be perfect. Imagine having a 1.0TB laptop. I know, I'm a nerd. 🙂
