True and if Hitachi's Helium tech takes off (fill the internals with Helium not air, so less resistance and thus closer stacked platters) we could see a return of at least 7 platter designs before the end of next year.
Personally, I think that their 1TB platters were just not ready for prime time. ie the ripple effects from the flooding are still being felt. When WD feels the tech is mature enough...they will introduce it. ;)
