28% jump, where? I see 80-110% jumps in pricing here in Canada.
The 28% rise is the average selling price per unit sold. This does not take into account that people are buying smaller drives because the price went up so much (i.e buying a 1TB instead of a 2TB).

I think it's price fixing between the 2 major players.
Take a look at WD and Seagate's reported earnings for the last quarter. Their profit margins are up immensely. Damn straight they are keeping the prices artificially high.
