Western Digital announced a 3TB external drive awhile back, this week they announce a internal 3TB Caviar Green Drive. While I have no need for the drive at this time I have to admit I’m curios.
As the reviews I link to at the end mention, there’s a 2.9TB barrier with most systems these days. Western Digital provides a controller board with the disk in order to get around the issue.
The bottom line is, review the pitfalls before spending your money. Or better yet, wait for others to clarify the pitfalls. I have to admit I’m curious and I’m looking for a way to justify buying one.
