Unless you’re running a small security operation a la Tony Montana, you can probably safely steer clear of this new 1TB enterprise-level hard drive. What makes this noteworthy is that it’s the first 3.5-inch drive to have 1TB spread over only three platters, or 334GB per platter. (Compare that tolast year’s Hitachi’s 7K1000, which uses five platters, or 200GB per platter.) So yeah, that’s a lot of space to play with.

It should be available this quarter, just in time to help prevent any unwanted Anthony Cumia-style home invasions.
