Hitachi Planning Super Data Catridge

Hitachi has raised the bar, yet again. How does 940GB of storage capacity sound at a measly US$340? Hands up who wants one of these babies to house their Simpsons re-runs

Linkage to the news article

That's got to be the greatest idea ever, w00t! I imagine the read/write speed would be far superior to tape backup drives as well. Can't wait to check this stuff out.

Impressive - but how do they react to shock - ie vibration, being dropped or the like?

and what about the speed of it?

any ideas.

Im a boxing fanatic, and have 2 x500gb hdd, and get scared if it crashes. i usually just buy another hdd as means of backup.

this will be great if its not too slow

and when is the release date btw?

I have a feeling that if the Blu Ray version comes out it won't do well because I think it will be very expensive because Blu Ray is very expensive.
