Hard Drive Prices Soar!

Who would have thought that flooding all the way across the world could have such an impact impact on us here in the UK.  It turns out that most of the hard drives produced around the world are made in Thailand factories, Western Digital, Seagate, fujitsu and toshiba to name but a few.

The recovery period is expected to take till mid to late 2012 and untill then the high costs and scarcity of hard drives will affect consumers across the world.  The price of an actual hard disk drive has more than doubled over the past month and is likely to increase again possibly to over 4 times the original cost!

Due to the high pricing there’s an opportunity to solid state drives to sell more if they can increase the capacity and lower the pricing.  The cost of laptops and desktops pc’s are going to rise in the next couple of months and we could be talking about an extra £100 on the cost of a computer by march.
