Seagate 4TB hard drive

Seagate is now selling what it deems to be the world's first 4 terabyte hard drive to use 1 terabyte platter technology. The result is a four platter design that means a boost in performance while reducing material costs, resulting in a better drive for less money. According to Seagate, you can store 450 hours of video, 800,000 photos, or 1 million songs on its newest internal drive. As far as data rate is concerned, expect 146 MB per second, and boasts 64 MB cache and 7200 RPM speed. You can pick up the Seagate 4 TB drive on Amazon for $189.
