1.5 TB drives

Heck I remember when 1 gig was plenty then 100 gigs was like woa! and now 1.5 TB are out. They're predicting new hard drives will go up between 250 to 500 gigs now each update.

I just bought my computer about 4 months ago... and it has a 750GB HDD... it's already about 1/3rd full.

I read once that hard drives become unstable after 250 GB. Meaning that they can fail alllot more easier. Anyone else hear that? I built myself a new computer with 2 300GB hard drives in a Raid 1 setup just in case. smile.gif
