Excerpt: Storage solutions for the desktop hard disk market are now really starting to take shape. Over the past ten years of PC technology hard disks have been stagnant while sizes have just slowly increased, we have been stuck with the same slow and clumsy interface.
Excerpt: Holy hell, man. We have been waiting for this day for a long time, and Hitachi is the first hard-drive manufacturer out of the gate to meet our terabyte-size storage needs. Yes, that’s right. A terabyte. One thousand gigabytes stuffed into a hard drive, or in this case, a Deskstar.

Summary: The Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 is the UK's first single 1TB (terabyte) hard drive. And our review of the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 shows it can hold 150 high-definition movies or more than 300,000 high-resolution photos.
