3TB where art thou

The journey towards high density disk storage continues. Until today 3TB disks were manufactured only for inclusion into manufacturers pre built external drive units.

Now WD has broken ranks to announce the first retail 3TB bare drive. The Western digital 3TB Caviar Green has arrived.

Unfortunately only 3Gb/second (i.e. 384 MB/second) interfaced but for a non SSD drive this is not such an important factor
