Harddrives are too slow...

I was reusing drives, it is not something purchased for speed. I have NVMe drives for that. I use it as an encode scratch disk, not something that really needs to be that fast. It is huge, for a workflow including uncompressed video or similar it is great. This kind of storage space in SSDs gets expensive fast, at $485 per 4TB that is $7760 for just the drives. They would also take up all the channels of my controller.

Of course I don't actually need this much space so I wouldn't need to spend that much but still, spinning disks are cheap and enough of them together are pretty fast for sequential read or write.

These are very niche use case.

HDD is only like 3-4x better price/terabtyes these days.

HDD prices still too high. The TB/$ has not improved at all.

For the same price you could pretty easily get 40TB worth of drives

Space and power savings would be nice though

Not needing more than one SATA port and space for more than one drive is another advantage.

Yes. Not long ago I bought 2 6TB drives to replace the stack of archive drives of various sizes I had and was able to downsize from a full tower to a mid tower.

One of these would replace my 2 archive drives and give me an extra 4TB of breathing room. I could downsize again, maybe even go SFF.

Most motherboards these days only has with x6 SATA as most people use NVME or only a few SATA drives
People like me who needs many SATA ports for sever used is either forced to buy bigger drives or use 3rd party PCI-E add in cards with more SATA ports

I am limited by my PSU to no more than x5 HDD´s and i always keep one space open so my max is x4

WIth a single drive, transferring the whole time, from a source that can sustain higher speeds than this drive can: About 23 hours, with its transfer speed somewhat averaged over empty, full speed to full drive, slow speed (as you start getting to the slow side of the platters).
