I could definitely use this drive. With all the movies (not just porn) games and stuff I download and install, my 250 is filling up rather quickly

If you're into voyeurism it's actually more, since that's mostly low quality.

I know this is a little nit-picky, but in the picture Hitachi says this is the first 1TB Hard Drive, but didn't Seagate announce they have a 1TB Hard Drive BEFORE Hitachi did?

Is the Seagate drive at CES?

As far as I know there is no such thing as a Hitachi Deathstar, I only recall it applying back when it was an IBM drive.

In fact the Deathstar basically killed the IBM harddrive division, it would be extremely foolish if Hitachi would sell the same drives. It would be like buying a disease and infecting yourself instead of eliminating it.
