[citation][nom]velocityg4[/nom]Why doesn't some manufacturer just release a full height 5.25" drive again. Then they could stuff a few terabytes in that puppy.[/citation]

If I did my math right they could get around 600 meg per platter...put 10 platters in the 5.25" full size drive and you could have roughly 6 terrabytes...before formatting of course. Seek times would blow but for secondary storage at 5400rpm it should not be to awful. Power consumption would be high and most likely run hot. I remember my old ST-4144r(I think that was the model) was a large, hot brick of storage loving(120 megs!...woohoo) back in the day.
