    Sweet!!
    It's a shame we proably won't see the desktop version until late next year, but I hope my home NAS box will accomodate them

    Yea but Seagate ... hopefully some quality manufacturers will catch up soon!

    The article itself is a little a confused, mentioning it as a desktop HD and then seemingly saying it isn't : "Seagate has started shipping the first-ever 8TB desktop hard disk, doubling the 4TB capacities that seemed huge just a couple of years ago. If it's any consolation, though, this machinery isn't ready to go inside your hot gaming PC. Right now, all those terabytes are destined for data centers where capacity trumps every other concern; Seagate isn't mentioning prices, but enterprise-class storage is rarely cheap."

    As above, hopefully someone trustable will find one soon. I no longer trust Seagate as far as I can throw them.
