Summary:
With the WD2000JB, Western Digital offers the largest IDE drive to date: 200 GB is quite a lot. So is its $399 price tag. Currently, for this sum, you can buy two 120 GB hard drives. The question is: is the WD2000 still worth the price ?

---------------------------------------------

After a few weeks of delays, it is finally available: the WD2000JB from Western Digital, a high performance drive and impressive storage monster. It offers a whopping 200 GB, although, on the surface, it looks exactly like its preceding models, with no trace of sex appeal or emotion.

The improvements are to be found under its aluminum and cast iron casing: Western Digital has managed to give each platter 60 GB. Hard drives with 120 GB and 180 GB (with two and three platters, respectively) were to be expected, but the top model with 200 GB serves to show that more than 60 GB per platter should be possible - because this hard drive uses only three platters.

They have terabyte drives just their not IDE, yet... Look at how processors went, i mean last year 500mhz was the top of the line, now we have up to 3ghz (or will soon) processors...

I can't wait till hd's get hella cheap like ram did, it'll be nice to buy a 200gig hd for $50 hehe...

IBM has a new type of HD/starage device due out in a year or so. Instead of Magnetic storage it uses punctureing on a almost microscopic level. They say it will be able to hold much more data than conventional HD's.

Add to the the BLUELight DVD's coming, and a couple other storage form I read about. Gizzy I think 1 of 2 things will happen..

1.) Prices will drop in a sort of storage war

2.) a new standard will be born and one company will own the rights to it. Prices fly.

I did some math. It would take over 12 days to fill up a 200 gig harddrive at a rate of 200 kilobytes per second (faster than the most common cable/dsl packages can manage - faster than even T1 usually gets).

Anybody who wants to be a dumbass and say they can fill it up in a week should go take a gerbil and stuff it up their ass. People have bragged about how insignificant harddrive space so much that I've gotten quite irritated at it.

yeah, but that's not what I'm talking about. He wouldn't have said it take him a week if all he was going to do was transfer shit.

thats fast, makes me feel nervous about buying computers because they become out of date so fast. though, i like progress.

2600 said it best in the latest static issue:
"Obsolete: the computer you bought 10 seconds ago"

or something to that effect...
