    Are you talking about 3.5" drives? You can buy a single 4TB drive and it probably has 3 platters, maybe 4, so I would say that they are at 1TB/platter or better now. That doesn't mean that a 1TB drive is just 1 platter though.

    Why does the number of platters matter? I'd think it would be all be seek, latency, and access time. You can always go SSD

    You don't want to squeeze it all on one platter though, because you lose number of heads. A 1tb drive with 2 platters would have faster throughput with 4-heads than the same capacity drive with only 1 platter and 2-heads.
