I don"t believe it goes that fast!
I was working so hard to compress all my miniDV movies. Now I could just store them all without any compression.

Inphase is bring out a 300 gigabyte next year and will have a 1.2 terabyte
a couple of years after that.

It is great news. and hope the sony and toshiba solve the issue and agree with this standard sooner as I have 12 hour of video on tape and don't know to edit and convert them to the current DVD format or not. I think I should wait.
I am so excited.

Yeah, I can't wait for a commercialized new disc involving BD and HD-DVD to go in stores! I just hope they keep the BD name. HD-DVD is too long to say...

This is nuts really. Right now there really isn't even practical application for this except for large businesses that do a lot of backups of their computer system and have VERY large storage needs.
Not many individuals deal with enough media to actually need anywhere near that amount of storage. You can only play so many games, songs, or videos in your lifetime.
Until someone invents fully interactive holographic environments, a la Star Trek, there really isn't going to be much use for this to the average person.
Right now I have about 150Gigs free space on my HD, and of the 50GB or less of used space, about 80-90% of it is files I use like once a month. I don't listen to music at all though, so I can see how some people would need more storage if they had a large collection of albums. My cousin has about a terrabyte of videos and music, but he should be in good shape anyway since his job just gave him a free web server with Xenon processors.
Anyway, nothing wrong with technological advancement, I just think its a bit premature since there's not much use for it right now. Even the gaming industry couldn't make a game that would fill up one of those disks, the project would be incomprehensibly big to make a 45gig video game even with the most ridiculous graphics requirements and AI for computer enemies, etc. There's just no demand for that much storage.
