HDD production increases, price cuts coming..

Postby pam » Thu Mar 14, 2013 11:29 pm

WD recently announced that hard disk drive production in Thailand which was affected due to the 2011 tsunami has resumed.
Factories are working full capacity, increasing production. In the coming months, HDD prices will reduce to the cheap prices which they were available for, earlier.
Prices have already been reduced overnight for external disks. WD is also opening a new plant.

On the practical front...
It seems 2.5 inch drives which are used in laptops are now replacing 3.5 inch drives in main desktop and workstation computers. With better controllers which
reduce latency for read/write, have become very competitive than same capacity drives available 2 years ago. In RAID they excel in performance as expected.
With 2 TB drives available at the moment and 4 TB available later sometime this year. USB 3.0 already has performance gains equal to SATA 2.0, allowing external
drives to be used for a myriad of things, from running games to large data transfers.
