I'm assuming this means seagate intends to continue gouging us for their HDD's even though their supply wasn't effected a whole lot from the floods.

Its not Seagate - or WD - gouging us. I've TALKED to them and when the MSRP is X and you see the bloody hdd be offered for a LOT more than X....it aint Seagate making a killing. If you want to point fingers you have to look towards more "local" cause of it.

When I get a pee-release drive I try to always include a confirmed MSRP. Pretty easy to comp and contrast that number with what you see online. Just remember that the MSRP is in USD so....the cnd MSRP can be slightly higher - or lower - than that number....but it will give you a ball park number...that is HIGHER than what the retailers are getting them for.

I read an article that Seagate marked up their drives 40% and that their CEO said we are lucky it isn't more... I'm currently looking for it but I can't find it... Might have been my imagination or a dream.
