Hitachi 1TB Hard Drive

Hitachi today introduced the Deskstar 7K1000, the first 1TB hard drive ever to reach the desktop. The 3.5-inch, 7200RPM drive, originally slated for 2006, uses the company's own perpendicular magnetic recording technology to store five platters of 200GB each, setting a new record for density. The added size does not detract from performance, Hitachi says. The 7K1000 is one of the only drives to sport 32MB of cache (versus the industry-standard 16MB) on serial ATA models and has a quick 8.5ms average seek time. Shipments will start in the first quarter of the year at a price of $399 each. A version optimized for media streaming and quiet operation, the CinemaStar 7K1000, is due in the second quarter.
