    3, and 4 too. If yours can read a 5TB drive then please let us know where you got them :D

    I have a massive concatenated hardware RAID that presents a 10TB drive to the OS :)

    It supports 24TB volumes just fine. ;)

    Tested! :)

    I know it does, I'm talking about 5TB+ single HDDs... unless you have those?

    Not yet. :) But I guess the next significant platter density will be 1.5TB so likely we will all skip 5TB and see 6TB as the next up?

    Definitely 6 would be nice, I've read on a couple sites that 5TB drives are expected later this year.

    What, with 5 platters? Ouch! I'm scared to even use 4 platter models. I sold off all my 4TB drives and replaced them with 3TB drives even. :)

    I would definitely avoid any 5 platter models unless they were low speed and I kept them off-line and powered down most of the time.
