WD to launch 3TB hard drives

Written by Fudzilla staff


In stores by Christmas

Western Digital has announced that it would start shipping its first 3TB hard drive by the end of the year.

The exact launch date has not been announced, but the new disk could even appear in late October. Details are sketchy and there is no word on price or any exact specs for that matter.

Availability is expected shortly after launch and we will keep our eyes open.

More here.

Presuming that it uses four platters that means WD has reached 750GB per platter. I think offhand that only Hitachi will use five platters in a drive. Of course the fewer platters the better lifespan wise though it's not the spec that determines lifespan.

I'm waiting for 1TB platters so I can buy a couple two platter 2TB drives for RAID 1. Unfortunately 64 Bit XP apparently can not address more then 2TB partitions though for those who also think Windows 7 is a nightmare for anything other then games I recommend 64-bit Kubuntu, it's very customizable and I'm seriously thinking of switching to it for my production machine in the semi-near future.

Excellent!

I can now gather all my pr0n in just 3 HDDs. Time to download some more! :lol:

9TB of pr0n eh

I will stay away from WD for the rest of my life, very bad personal experience with the Green series (2 dead 500's and a TB) plus the pathetic service in my region.
But it will be interesting to see which vendor wins this race.

I love the Green series. Have 3 x 1TB of them for awhile now and all are going strong.

I just got a 1.5TB yesterday, didn't have time to install it just yet, but it looks great on paper...

I can imagine that one day they might release 5.25inch drives only to quit when mind less yuppies complain that it is to big even though it will have several TB worth of space. Yuppies only complain when it comes to hardware.....

About time! We've been stuck at the 2 TB mark for wayyyy too long. It's almost as if they want SSDs to catch up or something.

I'll wait for Hitachi's 3tb drives, I've had 1 2tb and 5 1tb drives from them and never an issue.
