Trying all the usual suspects, Aria, Scan, dabs.
https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/2TB+Western+Digital+WD20EARX+Caviar+Green+Quiet+SATA+6Gb%2Fs+IntelliPower+HDD+?productId=45894

Thats 100 and by the time you've added vat and delivery, 130. Does anyone have any other favourite component suppliers I can compare that to?

i get an email every other day from ebuyer.com. They seem to have some very reasonably priced storage devices, amongst other things.... although i'm not sure they'll beat your original price?!!

Expensive, but given the current situation with hard drive supply, that's a good price...

And for the foreseable future the prices will just keep on rising - along with the flood waters!

Same with telly's... they're the rock we all cling on to...

The latest, technologically advanced tv costs about 1100 - and it always has. I bought my 42inch lcd tv about 8 yrs ago (?) for about 1100... nowadays they're 350.... and you can get a 51" 3d tv for about 1100....

It's not what they cost, it's about what people will pay... and that about a months average salary !!!

no, that's a patronising description of a blip on the economic radar....
This is a global pricing model after all.... one tsunami, or earthquake doesn't change economics that much... yet it makes people like you cling on to headlines !!! icon_eek.gif

you obviously have no idea about globalisation and lack of alternate suppliers of vital components...

Check out how long it took for RAM prices to recover after the Kobe earthquake...

It is of course also due to the speculators...

But you carry on about 'headlines' if you like - it won't change the price rises.. icon_rolleyes.gif

It does when the majority of HDDs are manufactured in those factories.

HDD prices will be high for the foreseeable future due to these floods. If you don't believe it, let me get you a tinfoil hat.

so much for posting that link on here. They've all sold out now icon_eek.gif That'll teach me

*edit* bought same one from scan for an extra 15. I noticed Aria are now selling it for 130 ex vat. Theres a lot of price gouging going on with the availability of drives. crazy.
