Default 200+ Layer 1 terabyte Blu-Ray disc

Take with a shaker of salt, but if this is true...

Reversibility is being worked on and there is a generalised roadmap out to 5TB, still on CD-sized 120mm platters.

Like, Zoinks yo!

Maybe currently players wont work they can read a max of 8 layers and this is 200 layers. Im thinking that when their 1 terabyte optical drive comes out you'll be able to still use all your old blu-rays since ist designed using similar specs etc..

I hope they'll figure out a way to stamp these ROM discs as fast as a BD50.

I seriously doubt this would ever be a medium for movies but man would a 1tb Blu-Ray format make waves in the data archiving world.

Then again, the cost of blank BD50's are so high I wonder what a BD1000 would cost?

This is a much better idea than the other Terrabyte optical drive we have seen flouted about because this is to remain backwards compatible.

There comes a point of no return when you have 1080p media and pump up the bit rates to 100MB per second. This might be better suited for 4K displays or projection type home theaters.

All in all, a concept toy for the rich as of right now.

Definitely. But I remember a time when I was a serious nerd bad-ass for having 3.5 terabytes of RAID 5 storage in my house. Now you can buy that much storage with RAID 0/1 it at Fry's for under $900.



Bring on the 1tb Blu-Rays!!!

Nice, but I think I have you beat. Early 1991 286/12's were the mainstream machine with 386/16+'s being workhorses and server-type machines. Few people had color monitors let alone hard drives much larger than 20 to 30 mb. I bought a 486/33 EISA bus with 4 mb ram, 1 mb video ram and 14" S-VGA color monitor with 200 MB HD. Spent over $5800 for it. Even more in the upgrades that followed the next 6 years.

It came with DOS 4.0 and the DOS Shell was the only semi-usefull thing on it. I had absolutely no productive software to run. That all came in time but you get the picture.

Well, I had an IBM XT with a 256k memory expansion and an 8086 processor upgrade board...
