  • 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

    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...
