Seagate To Make 1 Tb Hard Drive





ravi_9793
Now we should expect to see 1TB hard disk drive products within 6 months

Seagate Technology has just released information to DailyTech with regard to the company's upcoming highest capacity hard disk drive to date i.e 1TB Very Happy
Quote:
The 1TB hard disk drive will be based on perpendicular recording technology which packs bits tighter onto the magnetic platter by positioning them perpendicular to the platter as opposed to linear recording which positions bits horizontally.seagate have used this technology earlier also.

In a statement to DailyTech earlier today, the company claimed:
Seagates 1TB hard drive will be our second generation 3.5-inch hard drive to feature capacity-boosting perpendicular recording technology, and it will use fewer heads and discs than similar-capacity products we expect to see from our competitors. It is clear that fewer heads and discs, along with our proven perpendicular technology, can increase drive reliability, and also reduce operating temperatures, power consumption, noise, and weight.


so,its a great news.The capacity will increase more when nanotechnology will come into play. Razz

Wow, that's so damn Big!

Actually, as I am writing this, I'm seeing an ad for a Seagate Barracude 500GB Hard Drive for $325, which is damn cheap.

the 1st thing I thought reading this was how much more room I'll have for porn now Laughing

Wow?

Nah, I already got 5 disks like that. I stole those to Seagate research center. Ah.Ah.Ah.

No, seriously, this is awesome, but I'm sure the first "edition" will not be as cool as we thought. Anyway.. I'll try it.


EDIT : Have a look Here
pashmina
i have got to but his HDD then.

as im typing this, i can see an advert for a seagate 400gb hd for 84.87 <- thats cheap.

but wait until HVD is released, 3.9tb on one disc

and maybe, they will do something to it and make it usable as a hard drive

ahh, good times ahead for us computer geeks/freaks/nerd/etc/you-get-my-point

I don't get what your trying to say. Shocked Razz


Anyway back on topic. That's great I want one. Razz

I've got 4 300+Gb disks but I need to add more. A 1Tb disk would certainly be interesting. Any word on the access speed?

about 70ns....not exactly the best.

Wow - a 1TB drive? I'd love to have one of those. Thanks to my lack of an external hard drive, burning off everything is a pain, and having everything in an easy-to-access drive would definitely make my life easier.

Thanks for the heads-up on the news; now I have another place to shop around for a hard drive. If I had enough money to buy a 1TB drive, I think it'd secure any/all space my family needs on a computer for years to come; our computers are already suffering as is. XD

We already have ~600GB hard drives or so I believe... Just a matter of time before somebody makes a TB one.
DSGamer3002
That is truely amazing. I remember when the first 500GB hard drive came out, and now that's barely anything! I wonder how much one of these terabyte hard drives will cost. Shocked
Agent ME
It'll probably have really slow write/read speeds - if it doesn't, count me in... (as soon as I can afford it).
Alias
Wow that's great. I only have 40gig hard drive and I can't maximize it. It's because I don't really like to put a lot of games and useless softwares on my PC.

Any suggestions on how I could efficiently maximize my hard disk?

Maybe someday I will buy a 600gig hard drive for my own Home PC.
billgertz
whoa! wow! that's gonna be a kickass product. I hope i can get one when its available.
Depredation
Who needs to be carrying around over 1000gb at one time though Razz. I can understand having a few tb on a server, but for a single person, it seems abit unnecessary.

None the less, quite a large advancement hard drive wise.
bigdan
I knew this day would come. I bet it'll be expensive Razz

Not only Seagate but Hitachi too Smile

I think I'm gonna need one. I looked at my computer yesterday, and it said I had 20 gigs left. I was like "WOW! Where did the other 80 go?"

It wasn't long ago when the 750 GB HDD was released by Seagate, I really think they should concentrate more on Speed than Quantity. I think 250 GB would be more than enough for me. Having a faster HDD would be a better bonus.

I already found some TB External Hardrives already.
So far on Newegg, they have:
1) Western Digital My Book Pro WDG2TP10000N 1TB 7200 RPM USB 2.0 / IEEE 1394a / 1394b External Hard Drive - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822136061

and

2) Fantom G-Force MegaDisk MDC1000 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache USB 2.0 / IEEE 1394a / 1394b External Hard Drive - Retail

Speed and quantity often go hand in hand when it comes with hard drives. The more you can pack on a platter, the faster it can read that data. The 750GB drive is faster than most people's drives here. However, that's a lot of data to lose if it goes down. I'd hate to have to get two of those just back it up.

Is this the posting of the future? Say something at least.
