It is very early for the technology but seems to show promise: http://phys.org/news/2012-09-japan-hitachi.html

Maybe it will be practical for large storage needs (TBs) in a few years?

The one problem I foresee is not durability - it is the age old problem of being able to read that data after four or five  generations of technology change.

Shades of Star Trek or 2001 Space Odyssey Smiley  unfortunately data density is very low 40MB/square inch (current magnetic HD's are at 1TB/square inch)

It's very early. I suspect data per square inch density will increase.
