BEWARE of false claims like the Green IntelliPower fraud by Westen Digital: all those drives are slower 5400 rpm in reality!!! They just use the word IntelliPower to avoid disclosing the real 5400 speed. Do not be fooled.

Weeeellllll.... Moore's Law isn't so much a "law", as it is a speculation based upon one man's fairly astute observations of technology trends during his lifetime. It's perfectly reasonable to expect speculations to be incorrect now and then, or to expect trends to be inconsistent and subject to lulls and sudden leaps.
On the other hand, I don't think that Moore ever stated that his observations extended to hard drive density; I think that's based upon inferences made by other observers. Moore only referred to transistor density on an integrated circuit board. So one could also readily argue that your storage issue has absolutely nothing to do with Moore's Law.
