Wasn't Hitachi acquired by Western Digital? Why is this being called a Hitachi drive instead of a WD drive?

The acquisition hasn't been completed yet. It's supposed to be finalized by late Q3 2011.

This is very good news. Now I personally dont want a 4TB hdd. I want a FIVE platter FIVE Terabyte monster. Give it the dual controller and dual actuator tech that is making WD Blacks so fast and it would be one beastly drive. Guess we just have to wait for WD to finish gobbling up Hitachi Storage before it will be a reality. :)
