Too small!

Gods damn it, the rate of hard drive growth has slowed to a snail's pace; my PC's sata slots are all filled with 2TB drives, and I have run out of room...
I am desperately awaiting the next jump in capacity.

This is a measly 3TB, and it is external-only - meaning probably dual HDD just like the first "2TB" drives... Who would buy this?
It is too large for average people, and too small for high end users/pirates.
Is there a market for this at all?
