    WD 10TB shuckable - Amazon $170

    It's going to be a nightmare when people can't read these monster sized drives at the end of the decade because all the helium has leaked out since the atoms are so tiny and slip through everything else Are older drives like 4TB blues still "air" ? Are 6TB still air?

    8TB WD EasyStore $140

    the problem is we don't truly know the failure rate on these drives yet $130 for 8TB is awesome, unless it only last 3 years and has sudden failure where you lose everything it's not like these companies are worried about their reputation, only getting past warranty dates
