Hitachi 1TB 7K1000 Hard Drive
A few years ago, the idea of a terabyte hard drive seems almost ludicrous. However, with the increase in digital music and movie sales, and the ever-increasing size of video games, the idea of a one terabyte hard drive finally seems realistic.
Hitachi was the first company to release a one terabyte hard drive, and they've sent us the DeskStar 7K1000 model for review. The DeskStar 7K1000 features SATA II compatibility, 8.5ms seek time, and 7200RPM rotational speed.
Packaging & Appearance
We received the retail version of the 7K1000, which ships in an all-white carboard box. Wrapped around the box is a red ribbon, which prominently displays how much "stuff" you can fit on to the drive.
The rear of the box and ribbon list more features of the 7K1000, as well as the easy installation into a PC.
The red ribbon has to be removed before opening the box. After that, it's easy to open the top of the box. The user's manual is in the top of the box. The drive itself is under the first layer of foam, packaged safely away from harm.
The drive itself features a SATA data connection, SATA power connection, and a good old molex power connection.
