after the last few years as the disk companies seem to have stopped
making larger ones when the SSD craze hit.

4Tb seems to be the new sweet spot for pricing, but even the local PC Depot out here in Deepest Inaka has Toshiba, WD, and Seagate consumer grade and business grade HDDs in 2, 4, 6, and 8Tb size on their shelves. Hitachi is advertising business grade, inert gas filled 12Tb as "available" out here. Not as cheap as, say a trip into Aki to visit Tsukumo, but available NOW, and, as Dr. Turnbull will tell you, more with nowness has certain economic value that you can compare to a deeper discount combined with thenness.
