Why wasn't I informed?
« on: September 29, 2008, 04:59:55 PM »

The internet news failed me, I didn't know they made 1.5TB drives yet until I saw them for sale at Newegg today. :)
1.5TB on a single HDD? Heck, I am still running my 80GB drives. I could replace my entire drive array with 2 drives. My how time flies.

I remember back in the day when MY first computer (not the first one I used, but the first one I owned) was all filled up at 200MB. Good times. Get off my lawn! I feel old. :(

PS: apparently it requires a driver update if youre running nvidia and vista? due to nvidia controller size recognition issues...

You're not alone, Urgany. I, too, have HDD's less than 1TB. >_< I don't think the combination of HDDs I have at home equal to 1TB! >_<

I am sort of in the same boat. I realized that they made 1tb drives and such but the price was the shock to me. Until last month I was using 2 80gb drives that cost $100 5 years ago, now you can get 1tb for close to that.

At least the combo of my drives is > 1TB.  I have 4 500GB drives in RAID 5; roughly equivalent to one 1.5TB drive.  4 of those in RAID 5 would be :) though.

I wish I would have waited until now to pick up my drives... I spent way too much on my 2x 1TB drives a few months ago...
