My maths put it at closer to a 20% increase in the cost per GB based on the drives I looked at on the site, but close counts. A quick and dirty Google shows 6TB WD Greens at a not-insignificant...

The comparison is entirely irrelevant. I appreciate this is a consumer oriented site, but the drive is not a consumer oriented drive, so drawing comparisons to a WD Green is...
