Where is the Hitachi Deskstar 7K5000 - 5TB?

If the 4000 is indeed a reference to the biggest capacity of that family of drive, I would take it as an indication that they're using 800G platters or that they don't intend to manufacture 5-platters of that type. Either way, I don't think you'll see a 5T Deskstar on the market any time soon.

Hitachi stated in 2008 that it intended to have a 5TB drive on sale in 2010. This is now technically possible with 1TB platters, but I suspect for marketing reasons they will take their time about doing it.

Expect 5TB hard disks by January 2012:

5TB External HDDs Arriving in Three Months?

Did a Seagate sales bloke just say 5TB drives are coming?

El Reg has asked Seagate for a comment.
Bootnote Since we published this, a Seagate spokesman has been in touch to say: "It is hardly a revelation that hard drive capacities will increase in the future or that sometime soon there will be a 5TB offering."
