Congrats on the winners of the contest. With that said, I'm patiently waiting on HDD manufacturers to actually do some serious performance minded innovation while pushing the capacity limits of platter storage further and improving transfer and access speeds. I'd like to see more tracks/sectors on modern HDD's and some bigger cache sizes. It's a shame we don't have 5.25" bay HHD's with larger platter sizes and quad actuators they could cnc laser cut the inner platter down a bit to lighten the inner platter that's slower anyway and holds less storage, but still ends up weight a fair amount and push the platter area outward more which provides both more storage and quicker storage access and transfer speeds. I don't know why that hasn't happened with the amount of 5.25" bay's that are unoccupied in PC's both today and in the past, but perticularly true today where many people don't even have a CD/DVD-Rom in their PC's now. HDD's defiantly need more tracks and sectors as well that really helps with short stroking and access times. I mean switching across one lane of traffic versus a 2 to 4 lane high-way to the opposite side is a world of a difference so more tracks would be really beneficial.
