Nor 1 TB technology has been developed enough.
S.M.A.R.T surveys show many >= 1TB consumer drives with problems and failings within a few months:
197 Current_Pending_Sector 0x0032 196 196 000 Old_age Always - 1457
198 Offline_Uncorrectable 0x0030 197 197 000 Old_age Offline - 1130
That’s a lot of data to loose if the drive fails. You need another one for a backup drive…
