3TB Drives??

Holy Cow! I just received an email for 3TB Drives. Can this possibly be stable? Yeah they're WD Green drives, but that is huge.

The preliminary specs include a 7,200RPM speed for the Seagate drive, along with a 64MB memory buffer. It has a 6Gbps SATA interface and an average access time of 8.5ms, while producing as much as 32dB(A) of specified noise. The WD drive as a low-power Caviar Green model is slower, at 5,400RPM and with a 3Gbps SATA interface, but has the same 64MB of buffer memory. Its average access time is slightly slower, at 8.9ms, but comes with a quieter 29dB design.

Kevin,

As with all HDDs that hit the market, it takes at least 6 months for the firmware to settle. You might want to give it at least that long.

That's what I am saying. We barely have stable 2tb drives now these.
