Having a hunt through the various European online retailers, and quite a few have these listed:

Yes, 7TB and 8TB WD Blues.

 

Ignore the pricing, they're just placeholder prices.

 

Glad to see WD expanding their range.  I run a set of 4 of the 4TB Blues (WD40EZRZ) and they're very nice, basically a Green without the excessive head parking.

Yes, I did see that about the HGST, that's actually what sent me off in my random web hunt.

 

I suspect the WD will be significantly cheaper than the HGST.

Well, hopefully prices will drop again once these drives start hitting shelves (both the HGST and WD drives).

I must say I'm pretty impressed by the 4TB Blues I got.  Had them about 3 months now, no issues to report.  They're quiet, they're fast, and they don't use much power.  They seem to be like a Green without the excessive head parking.
