never going to go to consumer market
please folk, dont forget these kind of drives will probably never go to common consumer market:
companies rely on sales to make a living, so they need to either sell a lot of (relatively) small capacity devices at a (relatively) low price, or sell a few gigantic capacity devices at a gigantic price to keep making enough profit.
meaning we will *never* see such capacity drives on consumer market, simply because:
a) most consumers *dont* need such kind of storage space and,
b) most consumers would never pay a pay the gigantic price of professional hardware and,
c) even if consumers would in total irrationality buy one of these device at a gigantic price, they would only buy one for their whole life (or at least very very few) because thats plenty enough to store all your instagram pictures for a lifetime.
so entering the consumer market with such capacity drives is simply economically *not* interesting for storage companies,
they will stay in professional market, with corresponding pricing
