Noticed that too, did you? =P I agree.

I know they aren't standalone, and performance is not so much of an issue either. I would use their services for $5/month too. But the guy above said to buy one - and there is no way I would use one myself, as the component choices are stupid. They may be cheap, but cheap isn't always good value. Besides, a single ARC-1300ix-16 supports 24 drives stock and supports expanders, and costs only ~$350. Why mess about with crap when you can use good kit for similar money?

Because people will pay for them & there is little competition, so there is no reason to drop the price.

Besides, the 2nd highest capacity drives available are almost always where the price/GB sweet spot lies. The 2TB disks are no exception.
