While you've been able to pick up 4TB drives from Hitachi and Western Digital for a little while now, they've been enterprise drives, meaning an enterprise price.
The Black series of drives from Western Digital are consumer performance drives.

You wouldn't get much change out of AU$560, in fact. Western Digital's new Caviar Black 4TB drive is an attempt to make that price a heck of a lot more appealing. While we haven't received an official release yet, the 7200RPM, 64MB-cache drive appears to be going on Staticice for around AU$390 at the time of writing, coming in at roughly AU$0.10 per GB. Considering that you can pick up a 3TB drive for around AU$0.05 per GB, it's still a significant mark-up — but no doubt prices will drop over time, as they always do.
