Hitachi 1TB Hard Drives

Perpendicular recording technology is quickly advancing the capacity of hard drives, which up until recently had been mired at the 500GB mark. Seagate's 750GB drive leapt ahead of this barrier, but before the year is over that new record will be surpassed yet again. Hitachi should have a 1TB hard drive ready for the market before the end of the year, according to company senior vice president Bill Healy. The drive would be a 3.5-inch drive of the sort typically found in home computers. Additionally, Hitachi is not limiting itself to conventional technology. Holographic removable storage will arrive this year in a 300GB write-once format, with larger capcacities and rewriting set to arrive in later years.
