Wow, prices are almost back to pre-flood level!


I'm not sure if any of you are interested but I found this external 2tb for 90 bucks.It is also usb 3.0 and 7200rpm if you care about those things.


Very nice deal. Hitachi by WD. Hitachi used to make decent drive, now I'd say they're average.

@sbaylus @kacia: I second that. I bought two Hitachi 2TB's in May 2011 for $69 each. I now wish I had bought a dozen at that price.

FYI, the best value right now seems to be in the 3TB range, where you can find drives floating around the $150 mark ($50/TB, $20 less than this drive).


@sbaylus: Prices aren't back to pre-flood level. I bought a couple 2TB drives for this price a year ago. Okay... they were 5400rpm, but still...


@zollars23: I wouldn't consider 2x prices to be almost. However, according to heuristic reports, production should return by end of year; however, we'll be used to current prices by then so it might not drop
