I posted this in another thread

I ordered another 2TB samsung F4 a couple of weeks ago for $89 shipped from newegg.

Today it's $230 :headexplode:

I was planning on re-organizing all my movies on a few of the F4's inside this thing


I guess not anymore. :/ From what I've read, there's really not even a real shortage on anything right now. I think it's the market's hysteria partly to blame. Kinda like during hurricane season when an oil rig gets hit, all of a sudden the media makes it out like there will be a terrible gasoline shortage/famine and all the retards buy into it and gas stations suddenly are charging a buck more per gallon.

Anyways, as of yesterday afternoon, I actually found that CDW HDD prices are still the same but some are back ordered. I have 2 of those samsung F4's ordered from them for $212 shipped but the order status says they're backordered till mid december. I can wait. It beats paying those outrageous prices for sure.

I should part out my 25 two terabyte hard drives


Wow- at what, $200 a pop that's... about $2500. How much profit would that come to for you? Over 100%? :lol:

Dad-gummit. :o

no, shortages are starting to come. PC retailers are stocking heavily, as supply *IS* disrupted and as such accelerating the shortage. However, as the damages are real, it will take time to stabilize.

No cheap storage for a while :(

I just hope this pushes SSD prices down as their volume should go up...

what is weird is that HDD prices are affected, but nothing else. there is a ****load of other products build in that region.

WD hard-drive prices have almost double locally.

A 2TB disk is now in the $250-350 range here. But they will come down in price soon. If you don't have to buy right now, it's not a big deal really.

it will take much longer for the price to go down, then it jumped up.
