this means that a single 16 bay drive chassis can hold 128 TB.

Wow.

Let's just hope their 8Tb hard drives have a lot better quality control than their recent 1,2,3,and 4Tb drives. :)

I'm a Hitachi guy, but I'm willing to outfit a box with these and give it a test.

Based on the wording of the release, such as "reliability and support for archive workloads", I am going to guess this is Terascale HDD and, like the 4TB drive in that family, 5,900 RPM. Good for nearline storage, not for primary storage to edit off.

you would have to pay me a lot of money to trust Seagate again.
I use HGST and WD drives (which both suck) but are better than Seagates - even the Constellations !
