1.5 TB drives and IT'S ABOUT BLOODY TIME!

Honestly, 1TB drives have been top dog for *way* too long. Come August, 1.5TB drives will finally be shipping from Seagate. Of course, they likely won't be anywhere near acceptably priced down here until next year, but just having them out there at last is fantastic. If nothing else, it should hasten the inevitability of 1TB drives gaining "best bang for buck" status.

Of course, with 1TB drive at <20c/GB they're not exactly over-priced right now... but still, they could be cheaper. :-)

I have an old Dell box with two SATA ports, would make a nice simple WHS box. with 2x 1TB drives in it. Just have to pop the floppy drive out and whack in a Multi-Card Reader.

Yeah, I also look forward to better priced 1TB drives as I'm wanting to buy one or two.

They are down to about $200 now. That's pretty fraking cheap.

Yeah, 931GB is nice and round...

Higher capacity drive are always a win though. Wonder how long before we see 2TB drives.

I did see Hitachi (or someone) was looking to have 5TB disks in 2010.


That's from memory mind you, but someone was claiming insanely high densities.

1.5TB would be nice. I could get all my tv series on one disk, maybe.

What would 1.5tb format to though?

Would it be like a 1tb and 500gb added? 931 + 465 = 1396?

If so, that's a significant loss of actual gigglebytes.

I'd be happier if the manufacturers used Base 2 instead of Base 10 for counting marketing their bytes. That's something I'd throw a party for :)~

Yeah. How much money are they actually saving by doing it this way?

Well a 931.5GB or whatever it is disk doesn't sound nearly as impressive as ONE TERABYTE GUYS OH MY GOD.

I'm looking forward to the complaint threads that start as SSDs become more common and people get upset that when they asked for a 64GB drive they didn't get 64,000,000,000 bytes.

Ya the 1.5TB drives came out today in the States by Seagate. They are $411 from what I can see. Thats a little steep as you could get a 1TB for $170 and a 500 for $79.99 and that would be good. but then again, there's is ONE disk.

Yes but just huving 1.5Tb drives available should bring down the cost of 1Tb drives. :D
