My customer is using the RE WD5003ABYX on their current project. They are re-designing the product and will release in 2014. What will be the equivalent drive model (with longevity) in 2014 ? 500GB? 1TB? My distributor is unable to answer the question.
Hi maybe I am reading the question wrong, but are you asking for a hard drive model number that has not been made yet and wont be until 2014 many changes come in a year with pc’s who knows what they will have by then.
I agree. Things change fast. The sweetspot for the customer is 500GB currently even though they only require 250GB. By 2014, maybe the sweetspot in terms of price/capacity will be 1TB. Don’t necessarily need a model #. The main driver for the customer is a stable supply since changes take 2+ months to implement (everything is on print).
Hi yes but now they have 4tb drives so I would have to say in a year 2 tb would be normal but that is a guess only. 1 tb drives are normal now even hp puts 1tb drives in there systems.
