This past August I picked up a Hitachi 2TB internal drive for about $110 at TigerDirect. In doing some research for this post I discovered that hard drive prices have gone way up since then.
When I looked further, I found an article on TMC Net quoting blogger Marc Bevand whose recent post is titled “1TB Hard Drive Prices up 180% in a Month”. The culprit? - flooding in Thailand, where a large percentage of the hard drives produced in the world are made.
Okay, I have to concede that hard drives, for now at least, are fairly expensive, but I still don't think this is a show stopper long term.
