Default 500GB HDD'S AVAILABLE 2nd QUARTER

FROM www.pcworld.com
"Hitachi's 500GB drive will be available in two versions: a $500 drive featuring the older parallel ATA interface and an 8MB data buffer, and a $520 model with a 16MB buffer that uses the 3-gigabits-per-second Serial ATA II interface (which is backward-compatible with the 1.5-gbps SATA interface). Test units were not available at press time, but shipping versions should be ready in the second quarter of this year. Hitachi estimates that the five-platter 500GB drives will be able to store up to 56 hours of HDTV depending on compression rates."

Can't wait to get 2 500GIG SATA2 HDD'S and RUN THEM IN RAID 0!!!

!!!HOLY TERABYTES BATMAN!!!

The only point in having terabytes on a personal computer at this point in time is for bragging rights.

Yeah, i've got a 300GIG SATA HDD in my current machine as additional storage, it only has about 24GIG free right now. I've got SOOOOO many DVD's converted to AVI, DIVX and XVID on it. I've got like half of blockbuster on that drive... 500GIG would be fantastic!!! WooHoo!!!
