[cnet] How bad is the hard disk shortage?

post #1 of 141

Quote:
Intel's market-moving statement today that it expects a fourth-quarter revenue shortfall of roughly $1 billion has crystallized the impact of the hard disk drive shortage. So how bad is it?

A report last week from IHS-iSuppli said it's pretty bad--a preview of what Intel said today. That is, the flooding in Thailand will hit PC shipments in the first quarter. iSuppli says the shortfall will be about 3.8 million PCs.

And what about solid-state drives? So far, Intel has not seen a significant pick-up in solid-state drive orders. But that may change as more SSD-packing ultrabooks hit the market and companies reassess HDDs. "So far, we have not seen a big uptick in demand for SSDs. That said, I do expect that to happen. I think it will be one of the ways that the industry helps offset some of the HDD shortage," said Smith.


Lower the price buddy those of us that buy independent drives are sitting.. SSD is still way to expensive to use as storage. Its a boot drive and maybe 1 or 2 games. We're talking about enthusiasts some of whom have 10 to 15 TB of storage drives. LOL that aint gonna happen with SSD unless you lower the prices. If you want to stomp HDD suppliers you need to be a lot more reasonable in dollar/gb ratio.

How much has the price of a 1TB (terabyte) drive risen? "Right now you're looking at $99 where before it was $50," the representative said, citing one of the least expensive models. And he added that prices will not be going back down for a long time. But how long a "long time" is, is anybody's guess.

cheapest 1TB I see on newegg is a hitachi and its 130...

Wow, you're right but it's worth it because it's the "D" model, fastest 7200rpm drive on the market atm. Makes all other 1TB drives look prehistoric.

No way in hell I'm spending $136.99 on a WD Green drive with the performance it offers.
