    10TB?! Finally we can install all the games in our Steam Library. Even the ones we've bought in various sales over the years but never played (... or will play! )

    Re: WD ships the HGST Ultrastar He10 HDD third-gen helium drive

    I remember back when I got a 30GB drive and everyone thought I was mad and that I could install every game I had twice over, I've now got games that wouldn't even install on it let alone run smoothly.

    great, but how much is it? and this doesn't use that shingled technology like some of the 8tb drives does it?

    I remember importing a 40MB (yes MB) from the USA to run with my 386. I managed to fill it up with crap, the same as Ive managed to do with every drive since. The bigger the drive the more lazy people get in keeping their file system tidy. Seems to apply to the game coders also.

    About bloody time, it's only been what, over a year and a quarter since they announced this? Most things in I.T. would have become obsolete if it took that long between announcement and actual availability.

    Probably in the $1000 range. The 8TB model sells for $600-800. And no it's not shingled.

    Are you confusing it with the 10TB helium filled shingled drive that HGST announced ages ago?

    Ah you're right. I was thinking of the Shingled 10TB He10s from Q3 2014. Never realised they actually released a singled He10, since you couldn't actually buy it anywhere...

    You realise you're not meant to open them right?
