    At about 16,300 INR (with current Dollar rates).

    The drive packs 6 discs, 12 heads and a new higher density storage system (doesn't it always).

    With an MTBF (Mean Time Between failures) of 800,000 hours and load capacity of 180TB per year, this does make for a good storage option for those running out spare bays in their PCs.

    The Average data rate is about 150 Mb/s. A few calculations tell me that it would take about 15 hours to fill this drive completely at 150 Mb/s. Whoa!

    How much is too much? Well looks like in storage capacity, there isn't a limit.

    Attached is a data sheet for those really interested.

    I'll most likely pick one up in February-March if it is available in India. If I do, and no one else here does before that, I'll do a thorough review, time permitting.
