Is it possible he's just factually wrong.

EDIT: NO!

pingu666,
You are right about the specs of the Barracuda V. I think the author of that review was confused. There is no 8 meg ata version.

I see you are right that there will be an 8 meg made in the future. But the drive in that review is a 2 meg. You can see from the model number (ST3120023A) in the photos and text that it is the 2 meg version.
