    Seagate has received a number of inquiries about its plans to deliver a 1 Terabyte (TB) hard drive, so I would like to provide you with an update. As the worldwide leader in hard drives, Seagate has been shipping products with 750GB of storage capacity, the highest available, since April 2006. We expect to be the first to deliver 1TB hard drives in high volume for global customers during the first half of 2007.

    Seagate’s 1TB hard drive will be our second generation 3.5-inch hard drive to feature capacity-boosting perpendicular recording technology, and it will use fewer heads and discs than similar-capacity products we expect to see from our competitors. It is clear that fewer heads and discs, along with our proven perpendicular technology, can increase drive reliability, and also reduce operating temperatures, power consumption, noise, and weight.

    To date, Seagate has shipped some 10 million 3.5-inch hard drives with its proven perpendicular recording technology in the PC, enterprise, and consumer electronics markets – significantly more than any other hard drive maker.

    Seagate’s 1TB drive is designed to deliver:

    * Industry-leading areal density to deliver the first 4-platter 1TB drives and provide the highest levels of power efficiency, heat dissipation and reliability
    * Proven, best-in-class perpendicular recording technology
    * A rugged design with best-in-class shock tolerance
    * Whisper-quiet acoustics
    * A leading combination of capacity, performance and reliability

    I wonder what the temperatures of these drives will be like. I know quite a few people on other forums with 320GB Seagates running at around ~50 degrees. Compared to Samsung's drives (when are they getting 16MB of cache?) which are running at ~30 degrees on lowflow aircooling.

    Didn't Hitachi announce that it is also putting a 1TB drive on the market?

    Who is expected to launch first?

    They offer several of their larger drives (above 300GB) with 16 MB cache right now. And I agree about the temperatures, I've got a new Samsung and it's the coolest and quietest drive I've ever owned.

    Hmm. I'm not seeing any on NCIX's site. They must still be selling off their 8MB cache stock.

    That's not too bad, after all, it's only ~£0.25 per GiB, which is a pretty good price for a range-topping HD, especially such a landmark one too.
