Western Digital is releasing this, Seagate are trying to follow suit. Anyone else feel old, having used 286s with a whopping 20MB hard drive back in the day?

That's too much memory in one place. I can see it already, 10TB worth of games, videos, pictures, songs and then BAM HDD crash.

Sounds great for archiving and it's awesome that they can cram that much memory into one device but I'd rather have 10 1TB HDDS, which I could easily fit into my rig but I could only fill about half of that with the amount of pc games I currently own.

An extremely valid point. Personally, I'm waiting for 2TB SSDs to come down to a sensible price.

Totally! The SSD market is becoming more reasonable but I wish prices would go down just a bit faster. I either want them to come down in price or to win the lottery so price no longer matters...on second thought, I just want to win the lottery. :p

SSD prices are predicted to drop to 17 cents per gigabyte in 2017. Those of us in England will continue to get shafted with significantly higher prices, but even so, that should still see a 2TB drive come down to around $450 (converting from £) for me.
