SSDs might be catching up to the trusty HDD in capacity, but this first-of-its-kind, 2-terabyte, 7200 RPM drive from Hitachi serves as a reminder that for speedy mass storage people can still afford, the old standby still remains king.

The Hitachi Deskstar 7K2000, is a 3.5-inch drive that fits inside any compatible computer or enclosure. As expected, the drive uses the SATA interface and is Energy Star-rated. Hitachi didn't reveal pricing, but said they were shipping the drive immediately. So be on the lookout. [Dvice]
