8 and 10TB drives shipping!

I just bought 14 6TB drives. I'd buy a 8 TB drives today if they were available at the same price per GB as I paid for the 6TB drives. http://www.extremetech.com/computing...on-the-horizon

Where did you get your HDDs from? Can't wait for the prices to drop down in the future.

The enterprise 6TB drives dropped to about $440 on Amazon a couple of months ago and then shot right back up. I haven't seen any discounts on the consumer drives which go for about $300 although I haven't looked at their prices in while so perhaps they have discounted them since I last looked.


My choice for my next PC is either a dozen 6TB drives with an Adaptec 16i controller or eight 10TB with an lsi 9361.

These are just in the testing phase before mass production begins next year. They will most likely be unveiled at Computex 2015.
