This is great but... Isn't it going to be hard to find an external HD that supports those kinds of bandwidth? Can you name an HD that goes beyond the 200MB/s transfer rate mark?

This is great development...

Great for certain applications.

Where can I find an external drive that has over 600MB/s in sustained transfer?

firewire ftw, pity the dumb end users didnt catch on. if only Apple had pushed it more with its original iPod instead of giving in and using USB... and wtf flash drives far outstrip hard drives in performance!

Single Seagate 1TB drive easily reach 100MB/s. Put three of them in external enclosure and suddenly you have >300MB/s available.

Speed always starts from the ports then the devices attached will follow. Probably next year we can see devices that can use this potential.

Anyway, how about the LAN? why dont they upgrade it? 1000Mbits = 128Mbytes/secs only
