Hitachi to unveil 400gb HD

By on March 10, 2004, 1:25 PM
As we approach to the terabyte mark in consumer level products, Hitachi has announced it's about to unveil a massive hard drive designed to store corporate data or record about 400 hours of video for consumers, the drive weights in at 400GB at 7200rpm.

[COLOR=#1951B9]The company is billing the Deskstar 7K400 as the largest-capacity ATA drive with 3.5-inch platters. Currently, the largest 3.5-inch ATA drive is a 320GB product from Maxtor, according to John Monroe, an analyst at research firm Gartner. That drive, though, spins at 5,400rpm, which translates into slower performance than a 7,200rpm drive.[/COLOR]
