In this day and age, having 1TB of hard disk space is barely enough to keep up with the downloading habits of most people, and especially for professionals who editing high quality video and audio files. So it comes as no surprise when manufacturers are now racing to create the largest hard disk drives on the market. Hitachi has just added new 4TB models to its high-end G-RAID and G-DRIVE lineup of external hard disk drives.
The hard disks have been designed to work especially with Mac computers, and will also come in models that have Thunderbolt support, which will allow data transfers at extremely high speeds. Unfortunately for Windows users, you’ll have to make do with eSATA and USB 2.0. No word on pricing but the drives will start shipping this October, while the Thunderbolt-enabled versions will be available in Q4 2011. Find out more about the G-RAID and G-DRIVE.
