The new high cap hard drives usually find their way into branded external products like this first. Hard to tell when the drives might be available on their own, but WD/Hitchi should have something for us perhaps right after the acquisition close at the end of the year.

Hmm... can I wait til the end of the year...
/me looks at the collection of Seagate Barracuda ES.2 1TB's in his array and wonders just when nearline 7200rpm 1TB-per-platter disks will be out...

How long have you guys known about this drive but were unable to say anything due to the NDA?
I wonder how many people are going to buy this just to rip it apart and use the 4TB drive as an internal drive. I personally wouldn't dare run this drive unless it was in some sort of raid. I don't know anyone who has 4TB of data that they would be okay with loosing. Maybe AV professionals do.
