Ship 1 to your house, 1 to your parents', 1 to your girlfriend's, and 1 to your office?

Still live with your parents? Don't have a girlfriend? Or a job? Then you probably shouldn't be buying 8 TB of hard drive capacity, because that won't help matters. ;)

@nuangel: LOL That was funny! Sadly some of it's true, No GF, about to move, getting divorced, don't live with parents but thought about it LOL.

Ouch, I paid $80 for these drives in Sept. Hold off on buying if you can, prices should come back down to reasonable levels soon.

Do these barracuda drives still get the click of death at a high rate?

3 out of the 5 I bought awhile back were DOA and the other two lasted about 2 months before I could hear them clicking.

Here's to hoping Seagate improved this.

of course i just paid $140 for a WD 2 TB drive that was on sale last week on newegg. sigh

These are the green series of hard drive, this means power / sound efficient, and the cost of speed.

At only 5900 rpm, you probably wouldn't want this for any major gaming, storage and such is fine, but not the best for a main hard drive ( though it is sata 3 )

4 months ago this deal would be $59. I can't believe $119 is good but it is GREAT.

@mrsmoofy: It's never too late to move back in the the 'rents. More and more people are doing it, damn good way to save a lot of money on rent/mortgage. I would consider it if I didn't have the greatest view in NYC from my apt ;)

@bigcheeze: If rumors on the net are true then it could be till the end of 2012 or the beginning of 21013 before the prices start to come down again.

@bspiegel21: The waters have to recede (like my hair line) at some point... I'm holding out. The Samsung 2TB HD's I was buying for $55-$75 are now going for $270. I need more storage, but not at these prices, even $120... For the low end Seagates, I'd pass at even a lower price point..

The consolidation caused by the WD & Seagate merger hasn't helped much either.

@mschauber: Haha only issue thought my sister and 2 neices beat me to it so I would end up on the couch and my cats would probably not get along with their dog.

Anyways hopefully I won't have to wait till 2013 to get new drives because at that point I might just by a newer ReadyNas instead.

I agree with bigcheese. There has been a massive shortage of hard drive parts because of tsunamis in Thailand. Price for this drive a year ago was around $80 and should return there sometime this spring or early summer.

I you can hold off for a few months, I would suggest waiting. If you still want to get one, I have on of these drives for storage and it works great. I would not recommend this for your primary drive however as its speed is on the lower end.

@computran: Perhaps it was just salesmanship, but Seagate issued a statment a couple of weeks ago that they wouldn't be caught up for all of 2012- their production was behind before the floods hit and it got, well, flooded.

Hard drive shortage... I think not!

@katanaryda: I agree. In my experience, their hard drives are garbage compared to Western Digital.

I got 3 of these from Newegg back in March last year for $80 a piece. Yet I still am tempted to buy, as I probably should have more of the same drive for my RAID 5 box.

@mrsmoofy: I'm glad you realized I was just poking fun. ;) I'm with you, honestly. I wish they didn't hae the limit!

@tp546: Sure, but it was WD... which, from my experience, gives your data somewhat better odds of survival.

vote-for-2vote-against

I'm really disappointed with Newegg and the way they have been price-gouging on the optical hard drives. Yes, there was a flood. Yes, manufacturing was affected. Did that raise the cost of the units that Newegg already had on hand? No. Did Newegg instantly raise their prices for HDD's by over 100%? Yes. I won't buy any optical drives until retailers get real on the prices.

@liquidblue1: You do relize they have a business side that can buy 100s at a time right? I have an account with them and bought a ton right away. Most likely a lot of others did the same thing knowing what you need for the fiscal year and if you can get them cheap now or pay a ton more later.

just got - "Although you've entered a valid promo code EMCNJJC26, your order does not currently meet the code's usage criteria."... wots up wit dat

@mschauber: Don't scare me like that. 10 years later, I still have nightmares about Seagate.

Seagate and WD aren't merging.. but they're both gobbling up other HD companies.

Personally I'm a Samsung fan. I have 11 of the 2tb F4's. I'm amazed how flooding in one part of the world can impact production for every hard drive man. out there.

I REALLY need 3 more drives but I'm going to hold out till May or June in hopes that prices do come back to reasonable levels.

@salazarjohn: You might be disappointed to know that Samsung HDD manufacturing was incorporated into Seagate.

SO glad I bought a couple of these (retail) drives, on sale a couple months ago, at Best Buy! $80/drive (with tax) beats this deal, hands down!!

@bigcheeze: I'm not so sure they will come down soon enough. This is a pretty good price for this size right now.
