Yeah the only problem is the price , it would be much cheaper to just buy 2 1TB hard drives and run a raid 1 setup
And if there was an error during burning or your computer crashed or a power cut you will have wasted a lot of money ,
and how long will it take to transfer 1TB to a disk and then back to the computer , TBH that is useless to most people

I could not imagine what making a coaster out of one of those would do to your brain.

Technology always gets cheaper though as time goes on, so who knows.

I can't see how that many layers can be read at any given time though, with a simple laser...

I know what you mean neodude, my friend knew a guy who was a total pack rat, would never throw anything away. His whole house was full of stuff and each room would be full of one kind of thing like a book room, clothes room etc. well he had a PC room and when my friend went to help him clean up one day and he found this big bulky thing and he asked him what it was and he said "ohh that's my 1mb hard drive, put it back though...I want to keep i tin case I need it"

I though wtf? you won't ever need a 1mb hard drive...you couldn't even put a mp3 on it lol
