Yes, but 1 year away according to the graphs so for the moment 3Tb is the most.

4TB you mean. :)

edit: My bad. I thought WD put their own drives in the My Book Essential 4TB. Turns out they ship with noisy Hitachi drives for now..

can't get google translate to translate it to english for me - says the page is invalid - but, i can see the chart.. Thanks man, you just solved a real dilemma and thing i've been really heavily concerned about for me, IE the availability of the allegedly more rugged red drives in 4-5tb sizes. Hard drive space is a major concern for me, i store all my (legit, but ripped by me so i can put the discs away safely) media on hard drive, and have been stuck on what drives to get, for lack of a roadmap of the release dates upcoming drive sizes

'will this small temporary storage drive be enough to last me till 4tb reds are out?'

yes it will :D
