2.5TB, that's nowt, wait until we have 10XB (XennaByte) drives, that's like 4000 larger (at least, it may be 40000 or even 400000 times larger).

Still, very handy for the extremely addicted gamers but the seek time on these things is gonna be into the seconds, rather than ms. There's 63 sectors of each cylinder (i think that's right), ther's also a limit to how many cylinders you can fit on a disc which is why there is more than one in larger drives. So it's gonna have high seek time which will be it's achilles heal IMO.

EDIT: I just realised i'm a komodo now, maybe it should say commador though
