Just when we thought the arrival of 1TB drives was something special; apparently Seagate envisage 37.5TB HDD within a matter of years. Overkill? Feel free to voice your opinion below...

that's impressive but pointless. only place it would get used would be a server and they usually need more then one drive for backups

I remember when a 500MB HD was too much, then computerized porn came...

We need more space!

In the computer industy, there is no such thing as overkill. That is just my opinion but what is called overkill seems to be needed in a few years.

I can tell you now for free that 37.5TB is way overkill for me, and possibly many users. As Kemp stated earlier, I too believe that the commercial sector will gain from the storage. Meh, I just want faster drives

My feelings exactly. Faster storage is the way to go. I barely 1/2 fill up my 160gb drive right now

More speed and less space please. Everyone, and I mean everyone knows that hard drives are computers biggest bottlenecks. Let's get that problem sorted out first and foremost shall we?

After I finally get around to rebuilding my main rig I'm thinking about slapping in a SCSI card and picking up a pair of 74gb Cheetahs, and RAID 0'ing em for some uber performance.

That's the bea in my bonnet. The only use for one of those drives would be for server purposes, where a main server has something like over 100 HD's.

For the home user they would serve no purpose. (Unless you're a saddo who wants to record every single episode of BB, X-Factor and all the other reality TV guff that's doing the rounds.)

MORE SPEED PLEASE.

Frag, you are insane. Thats nearly £200 for 150gb of storage. I understand they will be faster than just about anything, but the price: performance is going to bit weighed far to heavily on the wrong side.

I was reluctent to part with cash for my 150gb raptor, and i got that just over 1/2 price.
