Was asked by a friend to order him some 500 gig HDD's this week for a project, as I was placing a small order said it wasn't a problem, said that price wise and before postage he was looking at £30 per drive. Went to Ebuyer, couldn't beleieve that this chosen drives (he wanted WD Blues) we £37 each ! Thought to myself thats odd, so had a look at Aria, it's the same story there, infact on all the main retailers the price for 500 gig drives has gone up ! Now I'm not exactly behind on PC tech, but since when did this happen ? I mean 1 TB drives are only a couple of quid dearer and in the end I got him to have 4 1 TB drives instead.
