Hitachi Prices, Ships Terabyte Hard Drive

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies said Wednesday that it has begun shipping the world’s first terabyte hard drive, the Deskstar 7K1000.

The price? A suggested retail price of $399, Hitachi said. It began shipping in March, with shipments peaking to e-tailers and retailers in April, Hitachi said.

The Deskstar 7K1000 uses the 3-Gbit/s SATA interface to connect to the PC, and contains 32 Mbytes of DRAM to buffer data. The drive’s average seek time is 8.5 ms, with a 4.17 ms average latency. It spins at 7,200 RPM, generating a theoretical maximum media data rate of 1.07 Gbits/sec.

The five-platter disc produces 2.9 Bels at idle, and requires 9 watts of power when idling. Active power numbers were not immediately available.

Hitachi will also ship the drive in a 750-Gbyte configuration, the company said.
