    Neil Poulton

    What an effing dumb arse.

    Lets stand a box on it's corner - because.

    As dumb as his utterly stupid web site.

      Agreed. Look how they angle the photo so as not to show the two trailing wires (power and data).

      At least it uses SSDs, which are less likely to break when the housing is inevitably knocked over.

        They're not visible as they're not there. No shadows. It is, essentially, kitschy desk art in the photo.

    El Reg standard?

    120TB - how many Lords of the Ringses is it, precious?

    Just how much footage (timewise) does one terabyte of 4K ProRes 4444 XQ footage tend to include? They don't provide a comparison.

      Re: Curious...

      ProRes 4444 XQ 4K runs at about 750GB per hour of footage (25fps)

    I'm sure they're thought of it, but I don't like the idea of a hard drive having a stand that has magnets in it. It feels wrong.

    These guys are still in business?

    How is this possible?

      I imagine the margins are big enough that they don't need to sell very many. That's why I'm always surprised this gets reported on, most boutique PC stuff doesn't. I assume it's because they're quite good at putting big numbers on a spreadsheet.

      After the 640GB Starck drives that all died en mass colour me shocked they're still in business at all.

      Both of mine were replaced under warranty after they failed within weeks of each other.

    "Six-bay 6big with up to 60TB" I wish ElReg would stop quoting storage figures like with with no redundancy.
