Frankly, we were hoping for newer, cheaper solid state drives to be released soon but we'll take a 3TB drive too if that's not possible. WD's latest hard drive has such an enormous capacity that you'll surely need a fiber optics line to fill it up fast. First seen in its external HDD solution, this 3TB Caviar Green drive is now available separate from its housing and it comes with an Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI)-compliant Host Bus Adapter (HBA), that will ensure the OS can recognize its huge size properly.
