  1. #1

    Default Hardrive prices on the decline

    Harddrive prices coming down

    Oversupply leads to lower prices

    Picked up a Seagate 1TB drive for just over R600 the other day. There definitely is a decline in prices, but it looks like Incredible Connection didn't get the memo, in their latest pamphlet they are advertising R1099 for the exact same drive.

    Great news I could really use a new HDD. My 500Gb and 1TB is full...

    Sounds a lot better than buying 32GB flash sticks for, what, R2000?

    Completely disagree. Bought a 2TB 7200RPM drive 2months ago for R1150 and prices are either similar or even more. Seems that some shops are only deciding to drop theirs prices now.

    Where did you buy that? Been checking my supplier pricelists (Rectron, Corex, Esquire, Pinacle, etc) for the last two months now and all of them that had 2TB 7200RPM drives were selling them for over R2200.

    Last week I finally settled on buying a Seagate 5900RPM 2TB at Corex for R1370.
