6TB Hard Drive Powered By Helium?

This seems like a gimmick: Western Digital enlists helium for 6TB energy-efficient drives

From the link: "Because helium has just one-seventh the density of air, using it reduces the turbulence caused by spinning disks and the heads that constantly move above them to read and write data."

This reminds me of the fad to fill automobile tires with Nitrogen. I also wonder if using Hydrogen would be an even greater advantage.

I am curious to get your thoughts?
