    Wow, I was not expecting that. Jumping from 50GB -> 1000GB LOL, you would think there would be a few steps in between. This may solve storage issues for many people. I wonder when we'll be having 9999999P HDTVS

    Blu-ray is good for 200GB so it's more like 700MB -> 8.7GB -> 200GB -> 1TB

    The density of data reaches some alarming level. A single scratch and say good bye to a gigabyte. :D

    Hopefully its burn speed is a little quicker. Could you imagine waiting for 1TB to burn at current speeds:o .

    I think that it is faster than burning 5 blue ray 200Mb disks...

    I'll guess 2015 when we can afford one.
