Default Hitachi's new Deskstar 7K500

Fascinating! 500GB HDD. Not only is it the first to have most disk space storage but also the first to implement the new SATA II interface.

Read more about it here:,aid,120102,00.asp

lol, yeh, imagine two of them striped 500Gb of storage, with SATA II interface, whats that in terms of speed on a single drive? 200mb/s?

EDIT: Eh! they're 3Gbit/s!!! thats 375Mb/s!!

i highly doubt they wil make it transfer more than 90-100mb/s because it is still only a 7200 rpm drive. so the interface doesnt matter that much cos the drive cant read that fast anyhow.
