    But you still need to take into account the fact that VirtuMVP is having problems with lots of games so untill they improve that there is not going to be a lot of interested in that.

    TDK Develops New Optical Disc That Holds 1 Terabyte of Data

    Of course thay are expensive not to mention very unreliable. I had a lot of hassle even with verbatim dvds and had to reburn some of them for a second time. that adds to the overall cost of course. Now how much more expensive it gets when you have to reburn BD-R media? And how much more exensive...

    TDK Develops New Optical Disc That Holds 1 Terabyte of Data

    He's actually right its easy to buy 2 1.5TB drives for 200Euro and mirror them using software rather than raid. I have such setup and it works fine. if one craps out on me I'll buy another one. How long will it take to reburn another of those? :) Edit: Also consider this 10euro a piece for 50GB...

    TDK Develops New Optical Disc That Holds 1 Terabyte of Data

    Guys you all forgot about tape drives LTO-4 standard can store 1600GB in 2:1 ratio (uncompressed 800GB) and LTO-5 will have twice as much. The transfer speed is around 120MB/s including on the fly compression. And each cost about 25Euro. I really see no point in this tech.

    Toshiba to Launch the World’s Fastest SDHC Memory Card

    It's not entirely true. From what you wrote it only has fastest read speeds. SanDisk Extreme III SDHC Class 10 has max 30MB/s read write speeds. I have one of those babies in my EOS 550D and it really is blazing fast :)
