    CrunchDeals: 1TB Seagate hard drive for $145

    What can you get for $145? Well, you can buy Lehman Brother’s European assets 73 times, or you can get this 1TB eternal hard drive. At this rate, I’d say the hard drive is the better deal. It’s the Seagate FreeAgent Desktop, and while I’ve never used this particular model, Seagate makes a mean hard drive most of the time. If that’s not a ringing endorsement, I… Read More

    [photopress:teradome.jpg,full,center] ExtremeTech added two new 1TB hard drives to its terabyte HDD roundup, the Hitachi A7K1000 (around $350) and the Samsung HD103UJ (around $260). No, those numbers mean nothing to me, either. The long and short of it is that the Samsung drive represents the best value of the bunch, coming in at the lowest price of all seven (ET had tested five before these two… Read More

    Vudu XL: 1TB of storage added to set-top-box

    Vudu uses the press coverage of CES to announce the Vudu XL, a $1,000 set-top-box that provides instant access to movies. Specifically, the enhanced XL model adds one terabyte of storage to the already attractive package.

  • Samsung 1TB drive is more for security situations than BitTorrent storage

    Samsung 1TB drive is more for security situations than BitTorrent storage

    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.)… Read More

  • Hitachi predicts 4TB hard drives by 2011 (and an important public service announcement from me to you)

    Hitachi predicts 4TB hard drives by 2011 (and an important public service announcement from me to you)

    That’s one big hard drive! Want a 4TB hard drive? Got four years to wait? Good, because that’s how long, according to Hitachi, it’ll take for us to see such drives, roughly keeping us on the double-storage-capacity-every-year track. Such a hard drive would be able to hold “more than a million” songs, says the BBC. (I have around 7,000 songs on my computer, which is… Read More

Hitachi’s new Serial-ATA Desktar 7K1000 offers up a full terabyte of disk space (actually 931GB after some standard binary conversion trickery), 300MB/s transfer rate, 7200RPM spindle speed, and a monstrous 32MB cache. It’s not all that expensive, either — available now… Read More

    Sony Says Maybe To 80GB PS3 For U.S.

    So what, Sony will sell an 80GB PS3 in South Korea starting next month. Big deal. What about those of us in the United States of America? Well, Sony just hinted that it’s considering selling the 80GB model here and elsewhere. Apparently Sony will decide whether or not to introduce the big boy in different markets on a market-by-market basis. Hence, we still see the 20GB PS3 on sale in Japan… Read More

    Dell, Alienware Ship Systems With One Terabyte Drives

You’ll find this hulking hard drive on “select” XPS, Aurora and Area 51 boxes. Adding 1TB of space will cost you just a little bit, somewhere in the neighborhood of $540 (at least for the XPS setup).
