The 750GB Seagate drives we've been raving about the past week are finally hitting store shelves
, for a “not so easy to swallow” retail price
of $540. Newegg is already offering the drives at that price, resulting in a cost per gigabyte factor that is higher than available 500GB models from all manufacturers including Seagate themselves. However, this is the initial launch of the 750, and the “cool” factor has just been put into effect, but will eventually wear off. Likely, we'll soon see the 750GB drives be cheaper on a per-gigabyte level than existing drives. Great stuff, for sure, and soon it may be quite common to see 4x750 in a RAID10 in every workstation. Ok, maybe not. But exciting nevertheless.
