Looks like a slew of new 8TB WD products have hit the market or will hit the market in about a month.

Shop High Capacity 8TB Hard Drives | Western Digital (WD)

$299 MSRP which seems nice and exactly double the current normal price of the 4TB WD Red. Except these new disks are double the density which usually comes at a price premium and will also be lower power usage and thus lower heat which is a nice bonus too.

Whats even better is that they will be available for $240 at the WD edu store which is $30/TB.

Looks like the WD purchase of HGST is paying off and looks like they use the same HGST tech in the new WD disks.
