    Of course, if I had won the lottery, I wouldn't worry about the how much, I'd just buy 12.

    Of course, since I haven't won the lottery, I might think of getting me a 400GB version. Maybe.

      At 2.72 GB/sec, you could only write the 30TB drive about 7.5 times per day, so offering it with 5 DWPD isn't much of a stretch!

      Right behind you he says as he grabs his coat...

    Come on, El Reg

    The one thing everyone wants to know, even if it's bullshit list prices, is how much this is going to cost. I realise it's easier just rephrasing a press release but please pretend to be actual journalists while doing so.

      Our list price on the 15TB 2.5" SSD is around the £39k mark, and the 7.5TB is about £20k, so I expect this 30TB monster would be about £80k list price. Of course, those are list prices, what people actually pay for them is obviously much less, perhaps about 40-50% less usually
