Hmm...

I'm thinking that my main drives will always be SSD from here on out. However, I think traditional HDDs will have a place for large data storage where speed isn't necessary.

I'd like to pick up at least a couple of these 4TB drives, but likely they'll be several hundred a piece upon release. Just means the price of the 2TB> drives will drop.

Agreed completely. I would love to buy a 2TB HDD for $50.

I still have no need for even 1TB. You guys need to stop saving porn to your hard drives, it will come back to bite you...

They only need to make it up to 800GB a platter. Samsung already has ~700GB platters so it's very possible.
