Was that an IBM or Hitachi? I know IBM made TERRIBLE
harddrives, but Hitachi is definely top-notch. I've had a 80gig for 5 years (and another one for 4) and both have been running at least
IBM made Deathstars (LOL, really just Deskstars, but Deathstars were better
) and such as quoted later, they died fast.

Yes! Indeed, Hitachi were before Seagate this time.
I'm not saying Seagate is bad, but I just dislike them because they set.the price extremely high.

Err huh? Oh DESKstar.
Man so much good stuff coming out :s I know i've said before "Oh i'll never possibly use an entire XXXGB" and then fill more than 70% of it.. but 1TB. Right now that'd be just bragging rights for me. Maybe when I get Vista and turn my computer into a PVR.
Good on Hitachi for keeping the price so over-reasonable (is that a word?) hope the drive performs well.
I am with you right there. I am nowhere near using my 280 gigs (I've always thought it was a 250 gigger, LOL, but it's only a 200 gigger

This year these HDDs will stay quite out of reach for most of us, but when the price is right they'll find their way in our rigs.
A friend got the Deathstar 60GXP... died in 2 months, another had the 75GXP which lasted a remarkable 4 months and made them buy WDs. When I read it comes out som' like Hitachi D D D Deathstar... I just can't do it...
Deathstar syndrone! OH SHI-
But anyways, does a HD movie fill up 30-40GB? Insane.
Hmph, who has 30-40GB pr0n per movie anyways? Maybe they'll end up like this in the shop "oh hi, I'd like to get one of those HD pr0n movies." IT WILL FEEL SO GOOD SAYING HD!!! (or High-Definition)

$400 for 1TB really IS low. Seagates 750 giggers started at a MSRP of $450 IIRC, so in comparison - it is low.
We can do a dollar/gig comparison. For the 1000 gigger, it's 40 cents per gigabyte.
For the Seagate (750GB), it was 1 dollar and 66 cents.
Thanks for sharing this though. I'm not going to get this, even if I get money though - since I'm only using 140 gigabytes (No films) of my harddrives at the moment.
