I made sure to ask...the HDD guys don't normally list the platter config in their specs.

If the picture is accurate, it's a 5-disk platform. In fact, it looks like Hitachi's 5-disk platform. I guess they must have gotten the design from the divestment sale with WD.

Bummer. I was hoping this would be the first 4 platter 4TB drive.
