Who would need that much space on their hdd? ~_~. It'd be a lot cheaper just to put in multiple smaller ones. I couldn't find anything like that on monarch, newegg, or google searched. So idk. Where'd you hear about it?

There aren't any yet available. This just means you have like 2 500GB hard drives.

They have 1TB created but that is in perpendicular recording.
