So, the main sources seem to only mention WD, but is the flooding doing anything to other hdd factories? or just raising prices in accordance to supply/demand etc?

Get an SSD if space isn't an issue. The 128GB Crucial M4 is cheaper than most 2TB HDDs right now.

I always found it funny that WD put all their factories in Thailand. I guess they're regretting it now.

I would suggest trying other, less tech-savvy, places first. Newegg and Microcenter are clearly informed about tech and reacted quickly. Some people have reportedly found drives at their "old" prices on shelves of other stores, though. Stores that sell things and also happen to sell computer parts (as opposed to being mainly a computer store) are not as informed and will react slower to it.

It might be too late, but its still worth a shot.
