Oh man.... that is insane...

Thanks for the tips everyone. I have 3 spots for 2tbs in my Unraid without buying a new cooler cage and I decided to jump for some of the remaining $89 specials in this thread, while they were still available. At the rate I accumulate and with the space I have available now, I should be good for about 6-8 months. Hopefully the world HD market stabilizes by then.

Its fascinating how interdependent the global economy has become.

it's definitely a rip off. if we boycott it for a while, they'll drop the price.

there are plenty of hd's in the market, and i cannot believe that these manufactures use the flood in thailand to jack up their price!

The SATA3 WD Green's on NCIX posted upthread are still available and the 2 I ordered this morning have already shipped.

I'm trusting posts here and on the UnRaid forum suggesting they will be backwards compatible with my SATA 2 UnRaid compatible controller card.

Best Buy has a fair price given the current prices. And on Slickdeals one guy is saying that you actually get a different, and better, drive that has the longer 5yr warranty, not 3yr.

Best Buy's Seagate 2TB $75

Just ordered 2 (seperate orders - they say 1 per order) from best buy at $75 and bought 6 seagate goflex 2tb's from local Office Depot for $90 each. I'm probably going to return at least a couple in two weeks if the price levels off. Otherwise, ebay.

I have a feeling this is going to be like the prestone fire about a decade ago where the prices never fell back down once the mfgers. figured people would pay.

well I just posted this in another thread, but this one seems more on topic...sorry for the double post. anyway these are store pickup only, but with the prices jumping everywhere I just got one of these for a spare in my unraid box.

WOW! $20 bucks more each for those than when I posted the deal about a week ago. OUCH!! I'm done with storage for a while, thankfully...
