It will only get worst, trust me. I do computer repair and our little shop is scrambling to get hard drives for any decent price. For whatever reason it seems Western Digital was hit the hardest of all of them, athough all mechanical drives have shot up in price. I just scored a used 1TB Black with a system for a good price though, I'm definitely going to resell, maybe even take the opportunity to sell some of my other drives.
This is going to last until next year btw.

SSD production seems to be unaffected by the flood, so while flash prices don't seem to be dropping too much they at least won't skyrocket up in price in the short term.
