Western Digital Releases High-Speed 100GB Drive

 

Western Digital has released a new hard drive, the latest version of its Cavier drives. The new monster has a whopping 100GB of storage space and, unlike Maxtor's 100GB drive, has a speed of 7200 rps. Maxtor can only boast 5200 rps.

To give an idea of how large this drive is, it can hold about 1800 digital photos, 40 hours of digital music downloads, and 18 of the latest digital games. With the high speed, "There's less of that annoying hourglass," the company says.

The new Cavier drive will be priced competitively with Maxtor's, at $299.99. It is also available in 30, 40, 60, and 80GB versions as well.

  I have a better alternative...  
 
Buy 2 50GB hard drives... use disk striping, and then you got the 100GB PLUS double the transfer rates. 2 HDs are usually always better than one...
