The cost of hard drive storage keeps getting cheaper and cheaper, while the capacity getting larger and larger. A year ago, 1TB drives were several hundred dollars. Now, they’re only a few tens of dollars more than their 750 GB and 500 GB brethren. Earlier this summer, Western Digital introduced three series of hard drives: Green, Blue, and Black. The Green series is for power-friendly applications, Blue for standard drives, and Black for performance. ThinkComputers presents its review of the largest in the Black series, the 1 TB WD1001FALS.
