We finally got our first look at what HGST's 6TB, helium filled HDD will cost on the open market. If you want one, a seller on Amazon has nine listed but the price is a bit inflated from a consumer perspective, $798. The He6 model has a handful of unique features. It's filled with helium and has 6TB of capacity. Paul wrote an editorial about the drive and went over all of the details last November.

What's enterprise today will be consumer tomorrow...or maybe a year from now. It's nice to see HGST moving forward with this technology.
