Just wanted to hear people's opinions. Know this report is a little old.

It's still a ways off but we'll have to see. Unlike transistor density (Moore's Law), hard drive storage growth over time hasn't been nearly as predictable and has jumped "ahead of schedule" more than once due to new technology developments. Kryder's Law, the magnetic storage equivalent to Moore's law, predicts 14TB drives by 2020. I guess Seagate is banking on a new discovery coming up.

I can never have too much space.  I've got over 27TB and could always use more space.  I'd love to have my entire optical media collection available from my computer.

And I, would not even know what to do with that amount of space. But then again, I have always considered computers to be the worse place to store anything.
