Ah...wikipedia...a FREE online encylopedia...where ANYONE can add ANYTHING...fake possibly as well...i doubt thats real...but hey if it is...COOOL! lol
Actually that's real. I remember I heard about it. Not for private use though. Too much storage. For commercial purposes as a substitute for hard drive arrays.
Rudeboi thats just not true. The person submitting the info has to go through a long validation proccess. If what they have submitted is false then the members of the wiki can have the info put up for review. You must have respectable sources!
Anyway I have heard of HVD in the news and I went to wiki afterward.
Do yall trust How Stuff Works more?
What do you say now!
The first HVDs will come in Spetember of 06':
What you're describing is something like urbandictionary.com.
Wikipedia is a little more credible.
Read this article from Optware:
this disc can hold up to 300GB??..wow that's alot anyways, now about everyone dicussing the PS3 and Blu Ray, and Microsoft and HD DVD, some other company is going to make a new system with these disc (just a theory)...i bet the disc cost a ton though.
i saw an HVD machine at Denki.
Denki is an electronicshop, japanese.
what kind of machine...a computer PC?
oh sorry about that.
its a standalone player, not for sale. its sole purpose is for demonstrating the HDTV rather than the player.
so what exaclty does this player do?
i was just reading this thread and some said this is gonan cost alot. I read that its either $1500 or $15000 device that reads it. i forgot which number it was. I read it a few weeks ago
Yeah, it's real. The prices are real, too. Still, even at $15k for a read/write device and $120 per disc, these are going to be popular enough to drive prices down quickly. I would expect read/write drives to be in the $400-500 range two years after introduction.
do you guys think they will put these drives into consoles in the future?
just imagine 300 gigs of GTA...
Or 3,900 GB's... enough to store around 800 dvd movies on.. at $120 for a disc that's pretty good. I suspect it will be a long long time before this goes commercial though and will still be out of the price range of most consumers.... You've gotta love the way technology is heading though, I can now build myself a decent computer(excluding monitor) for around £300($440 approx) and just 12 years ago I bought my first proper PC at around £1000 which was a pentium 90 with a 250Mb HDD, no cd rom, no sound card, no modem.. piece of crap basically, but was one of the best around at the time.
Bring on the advancements!!!
