Awesome, just in time for 8k3D movie downloads, samsung have passed 1tb per platter in their manufacturing process, of course it will probably take a couple of years to get down to a reasonable price.

Last year, Sammy’s EcoGreen F4EG squeezed 2TB onto a 3-platter drive (or 667GB per platter), and now the company’s primed to release a new series of Spinpoint drives with even greater areal density at a time and price that remains TBD. Whenever they do get here, the new HDDs promise to deliver 1TB per platter spinning at 5,400RPM — meaning 4TB desktop drives and a terabyte of storage in standard-sized laptop HDDs.

Maybe we don’t need Windows Home Server’s drive extender anymore?
