Oh snap! Seagate just announced it was shipping an 8TB 3.5-inch hard drive. It’s just for enterprise customers right now (which means NOT CHEAP) but it’s just a matter of time until consumers will be able to get their hands on this new Behemoth…which is what I hope they call the product when they sell it to consumers.
More importantly, this new size class will (eventually) drive down the price of smaller but still hefty drives.
In case you’re wondering, that’s about 800 full length movies (legally acquired movies of course)
