Hope it is not a stack of cdrw with multiple heads. It is interested to see if we will have serial bus instead of the current ide parallel bus. man

Hmm, come on, lets see this in the consumer market. I’d love a couple of these drives at home. Pity it’s gonna be years before it happens.

So I can finally watch my movies uncompressed :g . Finally 2,9966163694558756287151348879744 hours of uncompressed video! ( (100Gb * 1024 * 1024 * 1024)/(25fps * 720 * 576 * 24 ) According to the European Pal video format :slight_smile: I know that compressed video would probably be more interresting, but still, it would be nice watching RAW movies. :9
