    Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi) today announced that it has met its commitment to begin shipping the world’s first one-terabyte hard drive (HDD) to retail customers within the first quarter of 2007. The Deskstar 7K1000 began shipping to retailers and e-tailers in March 2007 with inventories reaching critical mass in April 2007. Announced at CES 2007, the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 hard drive is built using a 5-platter design to deliver 1TB of storage capacity. The drive is available with Serial-ATA 3.0Gb/s interface and 32MB of data buffer. At a suggested retail price of $399 (USD), the Deskstar 7K1000 is now ready to meet the needs of high-performance, gaming and media center PCs as well as external storage devices.

    Good stuff. I bet a *lot* more people are going to start complaining about how they lost all their precious data due to them not backing up their data though...

    RAID5 != Backup
    If you accidently delete something on a RAID5, it is still gone.

    Umm, to my understanding critical mass deals with atoms becoming so densely packed they are on the verge of fissure? Wow, I don't want my hard drive to explode and take out my whole apartment building when I defrag it lol...
