Don't hold your breath waiting for that price point.

 

I'm not pressed for time. If it takes a year or two, that's fine.

Your profile doesn't give your age but after following your posts for a number of years it doesn't take much to work out you are not a young man and maybe like me "time is not on your side"

4TB drives don't tend to be 5 platter either, which isn't generally the case with 5TB & 6TB drives.  5 latter drives make me nervous.

You are correct. I think I've posted explicitly that the road is much shorter in front of me than behind me.

Not sure why you would be nervous about 5-platter drives. I've worked with drives that have 11 platters and they worked just fine.

Increased platter count is directly linked to shorter drive life.

I haven't experienced that, but I don't have a ton of experience with 5+ platter drives either; just that the ones I have worked with didn't give me any problems.

The 11 platter drive, was that a CDC disk pack?

hmmmm, now you're straining my memory. I have used CDC computers; in particular a Cyber 170, but I don't think that was it. I don't recall working with drives on the 170. I've worked with a bunch of server drives over the years. I might be thinking of the IBM 3390, which I did work with, although it was a 9 platter drive.

Is that the life of the drive or the owner!

Could be both!
