For now 300 terabyte storage devices may sound like science fiction, but again Seagate discovered plans to release 1TB hard disk drive products within 6 months. The 1TB hard disk drive will be based on perpendicular recording technology. The 1TB Barracuda from Seagate Technology is expected to hit the market sometime in the first half of this calendar year. No additional information available.

Hopefully this will make the 500GB and 750GB cheaper. Admittedly hard drives seem the area with the most reasonable prices - possibly because there is more competition offering a very similar thing (Western Digital, Maxtor, Seagate, Hitachi, Samsung). It will be nice to get a TB from a single drive.

agreed, at moment 250g is the best price per gig, but im running out of room in my case, having 3x250's, i want a pair of 750's instead, but the price is a pisstake

wtf is it with people always wanting shitty RAID0? I'd rather have a REAL RAID instead of doubling the chances of complete data loss.

Some of us are more concerned with performance. I back up my important data to optical anyway. Besides, I don't exactly have any mission critical data on my computer. I don't need redundancy. If I get the second 320GB, I'm going RAID0. Basically, all I would lose in a failure is my Windows and Linux installs. Which only costs me some time to reinstall.

usually we do raid for performance, and have another internal/external large drive for backup.

The performance gain is unparalleled.
The security loss isn't that big at all compared to RAID-1.

Let's face it, the only thing RAID-1 protects you against is HDD failure.
I haven't had one of my HDDs die on me since I'm properly active-cooling them.

In any case, a RAID-1 halves your amount of disk space and does not replace a proper backup on an externaml medium (DVD-RAM for instance).
You are still running the risk of having a virus delete your data, of user error (oops, I wanted to keep that file...) or partition/file system corruption.

From my experience, all those cases are far more likely than a HDD failure.

Therefore, one has to ask what fake security do you see in this shitty RAID-1?

Of course, I'm only using my RAID-0 arrays (two of them currently) for OS and games installation (big deal if it get's lost, I'll simply reinstall) and video cutting (that does not mean storing the final movies).
Therefore, the speed gain is most welcome, even if it means doubling the chance of a HDD failure.
