Western Digital Releases 200 Gigabyte 7200 RPM ATA Drive

CNET News.com reports that Western Digital is now shipping a 200 Gigabyte 7200 RPM hard disk. These drives require a new version of the ATA interface and are expected to cost $399 at retail.

This is an interesting development if someone produces a RAID controller compatible with it. Imagine the network attached storage (NAT) possibilities if three or more of these drives are hooked up in a RAID 5 configuration.
