The **Terabyte** is the equivalent of 1024 gigabytes. The *tera* prefix originates from a Greek word meaning monster. The first 1 terabyte disk was a landmark in information technology. At the time of the release, the company Hitachi noted that it took 35 years to have 1 gygabyte, 14 years to have 500 gigabyte disks, but only 2 years to reach the terabyte. A 1 TB disc can hold about 5 million images or about 300 hours of medium quality video. Approximately 1,500 CDs are required to store the equivalent of one terabyte. Discs with this capability can store more than 1,000 copies of the "Encyclopedia Britannica". Some scientists estimate that our brain's memory capacity is around 1.25 TB.

The **Gigabyte** is the equivalent of 1024 megabytes. The *giga* prefix originates from a Greek word meaning giant. Often, manufacturers of storage devices use the term to compare the cost per gigabyte of different units sold. Something similar, to what we do in the supermarket, when we are analyzing two similar products served in packages with different volumes. In these cases we compare the cost per pound to find out which one is best. This is a very common term used these days when we refer to disk space or storage drive. One gigabyte lets you store approximately the contents of several books used to fill a shelf about 10 feet long.

If you do not wish to use our converter, you can always choose to perform the mathematical conversion operations manually. To do this, simply follow the following steps:

- Replace the variable
**TB**with the value in tb that you want to convert. - Carry out mathematical operations, respecting priorities.
- Get the final value of gb with the rounding you want.

tb to gb | tb to gb |
---|---|

0.25 TB = 256 GB | 4.5 TB = 4608 GB |

0.5 TB = 512 GB | 5 TB = 5120 GB |

0.75 TB = 768 GB | 6 TB = 6144 GB |

1 TB = 1024 GB | 7 TB = 7168 GB |

1.5 TB = 1536 GB | 8 TB = 8192 GB |

2 TB = 2048 GB | 9 TB = 9216 GB |

2.5 TB = 2560 GB | 10 TB = 10240 GB |

3 TB = 3072 GB | 15 TB = 15360 GB |

3.5 TB = 3584 GB | 20 TB = 20480 GB |

4 TB = 4096 GB | 25 TB = 25600 GB |
