I foresee an increase in SSD sales while HDD are up in price...could be wrong, but who knows. I wonder how long this price increase will last. Hopefully they will get back to pre-flood prices relatively quickly.

I'll never understand how/why they can get away with raising prices for a product they already own on the shelf. I understand when they pay more they need to pass on the prices, but it should be illegal to raise prices on stock that was purchased before the shortage.

I'd love to see SSD companies strike now with a small price drop to push the world PAST magnetic storage. While we'd still need large hard drives for bulk storage, almost noone needs more than 500GB for any machine in day to day use (not counting your large storage of files here).

I am sure glad I grabbed the 3TB when I did. But that said I was going to get another soon so I guess that will get put off for the foreseeable future.

This is also sad because within the next week or so, Seagate is releasing one of the best HDDs we have ever seen.

I agree.
Sadly it happens to Gasoline prices all the time...
