PRLog - Feb. 21, 2012 - November’s dramatic flooding in Thailand hit the hard disk market hard with all of the world’s major manufacturers warning that the widespread disruption to their manufacturing processes would invariably lead to a hike in prices as demand outstripped supply. But, just over two months later, memory specialists, Data Memory Systems have announced price cuts across their range of hard drives.
In the same week that Micron’s president announced that computer memory prices were at an all time low, computer users have been given a further boost by reductions across a number of premium brand internal and external hard drives.
As the second largest producer of hard drives in the world, the disruption to manufacturing in Thailand led to a 20-40% increase in device pricing – a raise which was passed on to suppliers and consumers around the world. The floods also caused a shortage of supply, which also pushed prices up.
Data Memory Systems have now taken the first steps to reducing this trend with significant price reductions across several hard drives, including the
1TB Samsung Spinpoint M8 SATA 3Gb/s 2.5" 5400rpm 8MB Buffer Internal Hard Drive (HN-M101MBB)
Older IDE notebook hard drives are also falling, with the Western Digital Scorpio 80GB EIDE Hard Drive (8MBs Cache - 5400 RPM) just $95.00. Fast and efficient, WD Scorpio is one of the best hard drive upgrade options for notebook PCs. With built in WD ShockGuard to protect from bumps and an ultra quiet spin, it is suitable for a multitude of devices including notebooks, tablet PCs and GPS units.
