I'm excited for 4TB drives, but I generally pass on the first-gen 5 platter designs. Too hot, too much power, performance isn't much of an improvement, etc. As soon as a 3 platter 4TB drive is available, I'll be all over it.

Awesome, 4TB technology.. hopefully the pricks in the HDD sector will only charge us one arm, one leg, and our first 2 born children for it.

Haven't you heard? There's a "shortage". LOL.

A shortage of corporate profits, yes.
