THE STORAGE division of Hitachi said it is introducing the world's first one terabyte (TB) hard drive.

The Deskstar 7K1000 will ship this quarter at a price of $399, or as Hitachi puts it, at 40 cents a gigabyte.

The firm is also releasing a Cinemastar 1TB drive aimed at the digital video recording market. The Deskstar 1TB drive comes with S-ATA 3Gb/s and P-ATA 133 interfaces. Hitachi said it will introduce an enterprise version of the 1TB drive in the second quarter of this year. µ
