Very nice .. but surely the market is elsewhere?

Don't really see the point when the whole world is crying out for smaller drives and a lower price

why the hell does someone need a 4 TB drive for a personal computer unless they use it as a server or something  :o

And it will be well overpriced

There is obviously a massive market for the smaller drives because of the shortage

I thought a good business plan like catering to the market is essential to survive these days  ::)

media server
 
1080p rips at very large, I have seen some at 50GB range, and that is just one movie

I would buy one if I had the extra dough.   :)
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.   :P

now mind you this is the full uncompressed files straight from the BD disk
 
I normally get my rips at right around 3.99GB or less (darn FAT32 on PS3)

I'd love to have 4 of those for my home server  :) One can never have too much space, but Max is right, ATT the trend is smaller, less expensive drives so I think I can comfortably wait it out with the 4 x 2TB drives I currently have until prices stabilize.

Just ordered one from newegg, they had a "eblast" deal for $22 bucks, seemed a good idea
especially with me looking to build a new box here in couple weeks or so

Better than trying to cable couple hard drives together to transfer data  :Woot_Emoticon:

first flash drive i bought was 256 MB for about £20 - totally useless now  ;D

current one is 8GB for £7 and I could get a 16Gb for around the same price now

I've got a Dell laptop with a 3MB HDD in it. I tried installing 2000 on it for the purpose of wireless internet but even after stripping the OS down to nothing it was still dog ass slow.
