Where's my MAMR hdd?

End of '19 is the self-imposed COO deadline. Tell me about the fantastic gains in AD. And how the STO doesn't burn out. Back in '17 they said MAMR was 99% done and working hard on the second generation. At 15% CAGR, you should be ~33% over '17 AD. That should be well over 18TB hdd.

I've been saving my pennies...

"In addition, we are on track to introduce our first energy-assisted recording 16 terabyte CMR and 18 terabyte SMR drives later this calendar year" - Mikey, July 31, 2019

how many platters? STX is already selling 16TB CMR w/ 9 platters... unproven tech late to the game. awesome.

I don't see the issue. We got one working MAMR sample to display at the shows and talk to at meetings.
So as far as I am concerned, we met our goal.
Besides, spinning media is dead. Lets make the golden move to SSD, a.k.a. the promise land of mill and honey.
